Sumerian, the Edinburgh headquartered predictive capacity analytics provider, today announces its recognition as a finalist in the BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards 2016.
The BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards are a platform for the entire profession to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence across a broad range of categories, judging on aspects of measurable success and influence in the UK tech space.
Sumerian has been recognised in the top 10 entrants for the Small Supplier of the Year category, exceeding the requirements and expectations of customers through cost savings and improved business performance. As one of the first companies to offer Capacity Planning as a Service (CPaaS), this achievement recognises the innovative technologies and exceptional service that Sumerian has delivered to its leading global enterprise customers.
In increasingly complex IT environments with changing patterns of demand, organisations find it difficult to maintain accurate visibility across their infrastructure and estimate future consumption. Sumerian (CPaaS) is a subscription based service that provides maximum flexibility and cost savings around capacity planning. With no installation required and no software agents to roll out, Sumerian CPaaS offers advanced predictive analytics software along with a range of value-add expert services that can be dialled up or down at any time to meet specific needs, especially in terms of supplementing often scarce in-house skills and expertise.
Its powerful predictive analytics engine and simulation technology has been specifically optimized for analysing large scale IT environments. The scenario modelling functionality allows for rapid, accurate multi-dimensional modelling of any number of potential future ‘what if’ scenarios. The output is statistically accurate insight that can be used to drive change – whether the goal is to rightsize, improve performance or reduce costs.
Sumerian’s recognition in the UK IT Industry Awards echoes what its customers have been saying throughout 2016, with a recent study by Research In Action ranking Sumerian as the top vendor for customer satisfaction and ‘the rising SaaS star in Capacity Management’.
Peter Duffy, CTO of Sumerian: “We are thrilled that the UK IT Industry Awards have recognised Sumerian as a leader in both innovation and tangible customer benefit, amongst strong competition. As always we will continue to deliver the outstanding service and fresh approach to capacity management that our customers have come to expect, and look forward to the final decisions of the judging panel.”
Paul Fletcher, Group Chief Executive Officer of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT: “Congratulations to all the finalists in the 2016 UK IT Industry Awards – their talents should be truly celebrated. BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is here to make IT good for society and the Awards are a major part of this.
