  • 451 Research Report on RISC Networks

    Earlier this week, Mr. Owen Rogers of 451 Research released a report on our company, titled RISC Networks aims to help its partners act as trusted cloud advisors, this is the second report Mr. Rogers has written about RISC Networks. It is great to see the analyst community see the values that our products can contribute to the partner community.

    This report indicates that ninety-nine percent of our revenue comes from our partners, which is primarily because our assessment and analytics platform is designed for system integrators, managed service providers, cloud providers and technology providers like Cisco Systems, HP, VMware and others like them. We launched our Cloudscape product to market earlier this year, but are finding that although the benefits span from the systems integrator through to the IT organization at their client, it is best situated for SI’s, Cloud Providers and Data Center providers.

    Mr. Rogers stated in his report “by embedding cloud-assessment tools within enterprises, CIOs can assess their options on an ongoing basis, taking into account different workloads, applications, cloud providers and cost benefits”. We believe our partners and future partners can add a tremendous value to their clients by giving these medium to large enterprises a clear picture of their current environment and to help them identify ideal candidates for cloud and/or data center moves.

    The RISC Networks technology offers much more than the traditional network or cloud assessment, many of our current clients and partners have said things such as “the RISC Networks cloud assessment delivered us more information than we have ever before and will help us execute our cloud strategy”. Our platforms ability to compare and model cloud provider pricing using the clients existing infrastructure usage and performance, build models for data center implementations, map applications dependencies using netstat and network flow data, build a network impact analysis for cloud moves, construct cloud migration move groups and plans, and much more is entirely unique in the industry.

    We tend to agree with Mr. Rogers comment “With partners, customers, revenue and profits, RISC seems to be onto something good”. Moving into 2015, our partners and clients will see some amazing changes that will strengthen our relationships with our existing partners and open up a lot of opportunity with new partners.We continue to develop our assessment and analytics technology in network infrastructure, data center, and cloud computing areas, because those are the areas that we see our partners needed the most assistance with. /p>

    If you are a systems integrator, cloud provider, data center operator, managed service provider or technology provider (Dell, HP, Lenovo, VMware, Cisco, etc.), I would encourage you to check out Mr. Rogers report and go to our CloudScape page.
