iTKO Revenues Up 100% Thanks to Virtualization and SOA

LISA Virtualize and Eclipse Edition 4.5 released, more than 30 Global 2000 enterprise customers added

iTKO announced a record year of growth and expansion in 2008. Highlights from 2008 include the release of LISA Virtualize for performance environments, LISA Eclipse Edition 4.5, and the addition of more than 30 Global 2000 enterprise customers.

"While overall IT spending is tightly controlled during tough economic times, in our research we have identified certain technology investments that a business cannot afford to pass up if they are to remain competitive, and principal among these is virtualization," said Theresa Lanowitz, senior analyst of voke. "With its new service virtualization capability, iTKO is uniquely positioned to complete the value proposition customers started realizing with server and test lab virtualization tools. LISA Virtualize has put iTKO in the critical path of cost containment and increased software agility for customers."

"While demand for our LISA Test and Validate products continues to grow, sales of LISA Virtualize have skyrocketed." said Shridhar Mittal, CEO of iTKO. LISA Virtualize is a key component of the iTKO LISA product suite, and provides capabilities to eliminate the constraints of IT resource availability and accessibility during development and testing.

Significant Enterprise Customer Growth
iTKO saw a significant increase in sales in 2008, with a dramatic increase in its global user base due both to new customers and larger adoption within existing customers. The company added customers across all major industries in both large and mid-size enterprises.

New customers in 2008 included Allstate, Bank of America, Intel and eBay. iTKO also saw a number of repeat customers who continued to purchase additional products such as DISA (US Department of Defense), American Airlines and Level3.

Technology innovation
The release of version 4.5 of the iTKO LISA product suite added service virtualization for load and performance testing, and other customer-driven enhancements to testing, validation and virtualization tools. In November, iTKO brought LISA Eclipse Edition to market, for more comprehensive test coverage across the application lifecycle. LISA Eclipse offers deep integration with many aspects of the platform, including the IDE, Source Control, Lifecycle Management, SWT interface elements, and other tools that operate inside of Eclipse.

Strategic Partnerships
In June, iTKO and SOA Software announced a combined solution for continuous management and quality assurance across SOA applications. August saw a partnership with dynaTrace software.

"Revenues are up more than 100 percent compared with last year," said Mr. Mittal, "and we just completed a record quarter that exceeded our expectations. We fully expect to continue our success through 2009."

CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. DatacenterDynamics is a brand of DCD Group, a global B2B media and publishing company that develops products to help senior professionals in the world's most ICT dependent organizations make risk-based infrastructure and capacity decisions.

We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
