At the risk of stealing our own thunder, Nimsoft will announce GA of the latest release of NimBUS tomorrow. Branded as the Winter 2007 release (under the covers it is v3.3.5 plus other parts) it contains many exciting features that I’ll leave to the press release and web site to describe. It also contains the “agentless” server monitoring solution which will give options to customers that do not want to install any software on the servers being monitored.
Last week was spent on the East Coast, mainly New York and Boston and boy, was it cold! We did numerous analyst and press meetings and I was encouraged to hear a very prominent analyst that I respect immensely tell me that “Nimsoft is THE alternative, and that’s a great place to be right now with all the big four struggling with many issues”.
Continuing the acquisition theme, HP acquired Bristol Technologies last week (I guess the HP and Mercury response time monitoring solutions were not enough) and of course Symantec announced the acquisition of Altiris. There are many rumors circulating right now about who’s next? Some suggest that Symantec may be being looked at by Oracle or HP, but the bottom line is that there are really very few mid size players left standing in this market right now.
All of this creates more opportunity for Nimsoft but we will continue to focus on what we do best….produce a high quality and highly functional product and combine it with unparalleled customer support.
I get to spend some time at home base for the next week or two which is most welcome – too much time in airports and hotels recently.
Finally, we signed our lease on the New York office last week and already have our two first New York based employees. We’re looking for more so if anyone knows either sales or systems engineers send them our way.
