New beginning for Numara

17 Nov 2011

IT service and asset management software vendors Numara Software have made their move to the cloud, launching a suite of four products supporting physical, virtual and mobile platforms.

The products, Service Manager, Service Lifecycle Manager, Endpoint Lifecycle Manager, and Mobile Device Manager, assist IT managers in maintaining and integrating their IT solutions.

Dave Hansen, Numara CEO, says IT integration is becoming more important as more and more businesses themselves move to the cloud.

"Many [businesses] are leveraging the cloud to enable automation and solve a variety of business challenges,” Hansen says.

"However, before businesses can take advantage of the cloud, it is critical that IT integrate its processes and solutions.”

Of particular importance is the management of mobile devices, which have the potential to cause huge damage to a company’s reputation, or even operations.

"Without proper control over mobile devices, sensitive company data can be accessed, and viruses can proliferate unabated, potentially jeopardising the security of the entire network,” Hansen says.

Numara's local partner Komputer Kraft says Numara intends to offer the hosted services in New Zealand from next month. Go here for more.
