Zenprise named Gartner Cool Vendor in IT Operations Management

by Bharat Suneja

Reputed analyst firm Gartner has just named Zenprise as a Gartner Cool Vendor in IT Operations Management space!

After winning a number of awards between last year and this – including InfoWorld’s 2007 Technology Of The Year award (Best Exchange Troubleshooting Solution), SearchExchange.com’s Product Of The Year award (Exchange Server Reporting & Management), and the Best of TechEd at Microsoft’s TechEd 2006 event, amongst others, being named a Gartner Cool Vendor further validates the Zenprise approach to discover root causes of symptoms.

Gartner analyst David Coyle writes, “Zenprise offers an innovative solution for not only alerting users when there is downtime or degradation in the Exchange environment, but also provides root-cause and resolution guidance”.

“Zenprise for Exchange is a root-cause analysis and alerting tool for Microsoft Exchange that offers advanced problem resolution capabilities that the Exchange event management tools, such as Microsoft Operations Manager and HP OpenView, do not”, writes Coyle.

Zenprise recently released Zenprise 3.0 for Exchange. Amongst other cool features like the Zenprise MailFlow Engine – which detects mail-flow and performance issues between Exchange servers in the same Routing Group, between Routing Groups, and to/from the internet, Zenprise also added a new module for BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Exchange. For IT organizations that use monitoring tools like Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM), Zenprise offers modules that integrate with those monitoring apps, providing the ability to use a single console for monitoring and managing Exchange.

According to the Gartner report, (Zenprise) can help prevent issues in an Exchange environment, (and) reduce the mean time to repair when there is an issue.

Clearly, we’re very excited about this accolade from Gartner!

That is great news, Bharat. Of course, we already knew that Zenprise was a “cool vendor” with a cool product. :-)
