I really have to thank folks that read this blog. I am so horribly inconsistent with the timing of my posts….I’m sure I’d have given up on me a long time ago. Some are long, some are short – some about business, some about my ridiculous life style.
What shall we ramble about today….
BSM – launch date has been set for mid-April, already installed at about 10 customers and feedback has been eeencredibel. Sorry for the constant teasing on this one but we’ve been working hard on this and think that we have a game-changer; our engineers and product management team have done a good job on this one. Don’t want to let the cat out of the bag too early.
We are also code-complete with the next version of our Service Delivery Portal – lots of new functionality and enhancements – looking to ship in Q2
Delivered our first Cloud Computing webinar recently (not me of course, we needed someone that actually knew something) – was a great success. Lots of buzz about Cloud right now – some real, some hype of course. We’ll be issuing white papers and customer cases studies in the next week or so. We actually already have customers using Nimsoft to monitoring Cloud Computing resources (yes….real customers paying real money)
Presented at the Montgomery Technologies conference this week in Santa Monica – unbelievable…the place was packed. I was trying to figure out whether all these software execs were “doing deals” with each other to combine their companies or whether they had nothing better to do Suspect it is a little of both – lots of companies looking around for other companies to buddy up with right now; we get a lot of approaches and certainly may look at adding new products in to our portfolio at some time.
Next couple of weeks involve multiple trips to SoCal….trip to East Coast and back over the pond again to London.
Also…anyone see that comment on my blog about the rumor of BMC buying Nimsoft? Funny…I remember the days when XX big company buying YY smaller company would be regular rumors….normally they are started by XX big company employees because they keep losing business to YY smaller company and they try to create FUD in the eyes of the customer. But…not sure that is true in this case because we actually don’t see BMC too much in competitive deals…..HP would be another matter….wonder if the HP team are starting nasty rumors?
Gotta run….our operations team are about to present a new accounting package to me……no comments please…I’ve had extra caffeine —LOL
