May 21st, 2008
CUPERTINO, CA, May 21, 2008—Xangati announced today that IDG’s InfoWorld, the leading integrated media brand for IT decision makers, has selected it as one of InfoWorld’s Top Tech Startups for 2008. This honor is part of InfoWorld’s Top Tech Startups special feature available at www.infoworld.com.
InfoWorld’s Top Tech Startups for 2008 highlight 10 companies founded no earlier than 2005 that are developing promising new technologies or using existing technologies in new and innovative ways.
“Being recognized as a Top 10 Tech Startup for 2008 by InfoWorld, one of the most respected and influential publications in the industry, is an honor,” said Alan Robin, CEO of Xangati. “This award is further validation that Xangati’s Rapid Problem Identification (RPI) system is providing enterprises with a differentiable solution that greatly reduces their time spent on finding the source of complex problems. We are extremely proud of this award which we believe reflects our focus on developing an innovative product that delivers high value and a quick return on investment to our customers.”
The Xangati RPI system uses flow-based information to give “live” detailed views into the performance and availability of every user, server, application and network across the entire infrastructure, providing a window into their activity. With this awareness, it empowers an IT department to clearly and quickly understand, in actionable terms, the core issues affecting their applications and network. The unprecedented solution even allows IT to identify problems before end users are aware that there is an issue.
“InfoWorld’s Top Tech Startups for 2008 is an honor roll of 10 young companies whose business-oriented technologies should be on your radar screen,” said Eric Knorr, editor in chief of InfoWorld. “We’ve focused on the metric we at InfoWorld know best: great technology.”
Over the past year, interest in the Xangati RPI system has resulted in significant growth for the company. The company has more than tripled its customer base across various sectors, resulting in hundreds of thousands of end users being served by the Xangati system.
