IT Systems Management Solutions Provider  Sees Distributed IT Gaining Momentum,
Cloud-Based Systems Management Innovations and Expectations for More Rapid Deployment Cycles

Seattle—December 5, 2012—Adaptiva, an  award-winning provider of IT systems management solutions, today announced its  2013 predictions for the enterprise IT and systems management industry.

Today,  businesses are confronted with increasingly shrinking budgets and limited  resources to allocate towards changing technology operations environments.

In 2013, Adaptiva believes vertical markets and companies around  the globe that depend on systems management technologies will turn to  out-of-box integrated solutions based on the time, cost and resource savings  they provide. Although the economic climate within the enterprise sector is  beginning to stabilize, it will be imperative that companies continue to remain  cautious with technology budgets.

Based on these conditions, Adaptiva predicts the following three  trends will shape the enterprise IT landscape in 2013:

1. Desktop Virtualization has Failed to Slash Desktop Computing Costs;    2013 Will Focus on Distributed IT. The promise that desktop virtualization would dramatically decrease  cost-of-ownership through centralized computing has failed, primarily because  people want responsive computers and a customized, personalized approach to  network computing. In the coming year, businesses will look to other systems  like distributed content delivery to leverage unused storage space and bandwidth.  Distributed IT approaches give organizations  the power to quickly deploy and install new software and provision new services  throughout the entire network in a matter of minutes.

2. Systems Management Solutions Will Start Leveraging the Cloud. In 2013, technology software vendors and enterprise IT will begin  to harness the power of the private, public and hybrid cloud for systems  management. This turn to cloud-based systems management solutions will offer  cost reductions without a loss of key functionality. The outcome will be more efficient  tools to better manage both traditional and mobile workforces – across desktops,  laptops, tablets and smartphones. Cloud-based systems management gives enterprises  the agility to quickly integrate SaaS applications without extensive coding,  and the scalability to easily build custom connectors and tools. It also  delivers reporting capabilities that provide the necessary intelligence for  managing and maintaining system integrations.

3. Influenced by Consumer Need for Speed, IT Departments will Demand  Lightning Quick Deployment Cycles. The pace of business has accelerated due to consumer demand for  simple, integrated solutions and technologies that make a worker’s life easier. This in turn, has created a sense of urgency to adopt technologies that streamline  the deployment of software solutions beyond SaaS, allowing seamless integration  within a matter of minutes or hours, instead of months or years. Additionally, these  solutions offer a payback on those investments that is almost equally as fast.

“The enterprise IT landscape is changing at a rapid pace,  partially due to the expediency of the cloud delivery model and demand from  tech and device-savvy consumers who ‘want it now’” said Deepak Kumar, chief  technology officer and founder of Adaptiva. “The days of deploying heavy expensive  software are over. With today’s shoe-string IT budgets and the need to integrate  quickly, we will continue to see the implementation of new, deployment models  that introduce deeper cost-savings and new business opportunities within the  enterprise.”
