"Enterprises and service providers are realizing that managing today's IT with yesterday's tools just doesn't work," said Bill Karpovich, CEO of Zenoss Inc., as the company announced its Q4 2011 results. "To get the full benefit of a modern IT environment that is increasingly virtual and cloud-based," he continued, "organizations are moving to new platforms and approaches for IT operations management."

Karpovich announced that Zenoss achieved 196% new sales growth in Q4, nearly doubling its growth from the same quarter last year, and ended 2011 with record revenues.

The key driver of growth, he explained, was large organizations looking for a new platform and approach to IT operations, as virtualization and cloud computing play an increasing role in their overall IT strategies.

Zenoss offers a modern-day IT operations platform that includes unified monitoring, scale event management, real-time service impact/root cause analysis, automated remediation and integrated business intelligence. Built on an open-software architecture around a real-time service model, Zenoss allows IT organizations to consolidate their operational tools and further automate their core processes. The result is not only improved service quality, but also significant cost savings and more rapid response to change.

"The only way to improve service quality while gaining efficiency is to take a new approach," said Nick Magliato, COO of SunGard. "Unlike the legacy vendors, Zenoss offers a single, highly-automated product that handles our global monitoring needs across traditional offerings and the cloud. With Zenoss we become more effective, more efficient and more responsive to customer needs and new market opportunities. In a short amount time, Zenoss has had a major impact on our business."
