Today I have a few small but interesting updates with a common theme; expansion
First off, we have LogicMonitor. Who announced on May 14 that they had established a partnership with Blue Turtle Technologies who is one of South Africa’s biggest IT managed services providers.
I would imagine this will be a win for both companies as LogicMonitor will be able to establish a stronger footprint in the South African market and Blue Turtle will have a solid hybrid infrastructure monitoring tool to offer its customers along side its existing infrastructure services.
Second is ThousandEyes, a digital experience monitoring company who announced on May 18 that they would be putting an increased focus on the Australian market and have hired three new senior management, one being technical and two being sales roles.
According to their newsroom, the three new hires have a strong background in digital experience monitoring and have previously worked at companies such as Compuware, Dynatrace, and OPNET.
Third, is Solarwinds who announced on May 18 that they are partnering with M.Tech in order to increase the distribution and usage of their IT Operations Management and Monitoring software in the Chinese market.
I have never heard of M.Tech before but according to their website they were established in 2002 and primarily service the Chinese and Southeast Asian markets. This could be a really good strategic move for Solarwinds if they can leverage the existing relationships M.Tech has with their customer base and integrate their monitoring and ITOM products.
3 different companies all with a common theme. They say that if you are not growing you are dying and I think all these of these companies (and their stakeholders) would agree with that statement.
