TA Associates annuncia un investimento di maggioranza in Bomgar

TA Associates, una delle principali società globali di private equity, oggi ha annunciato di avere completato un investimento in Bomgar, uno dei principali fornitori di soluzioni aziendali per il supporto in remoto. Non sono stati comunicati altri termini dell’investimento.

Le soluzioni software di Bomgar consentono ai professionisti del supporto tecnologico di accedere in sicurezza a dispositivi e sistemi di elaborazione remoti, e controllarli, dovunque nel mondo. I prodotti Bomgar vengono impiegati per supportare un’ampia gamma di dispositivi – da laptop, server, smartphone e tablet a sistemi POS (point of sale), dispositivi medicali e chioschi – nonché per condurre presentazioni e corsi di formazione in remoto e per gestire l’accesso da parte di fornitori terzi. Tra i suoi clienti figurano molte delle aziende Fortune 500 e altre aziende operanti in vari e diversi settori: didattico, servizi finanziari, governativo, sanitario, assicurazioni, vendita al dettaglio e tecnologia. Fondata nel 2003, Bomgar è stata riconosciuta come una delle aziende private a più rapida crescita nel Nord America, e oggi ha oltre 8.000 clienti aziendali in 65 Paesi. Bomgar manterrà la sede centrale a Jackson, Mississippi, con uffici ad Atlanta, Washington D.C., Londra, Parigi e Singapore.

“Grazie alla sua crescita continua e alla sua posizione di prestigio nel segmento aziendale del mercato in cui opera, Bomgar è un investimento molto interessante per TA Associates”, ha affermato Ashutosh Agrawal, un Direttore TA Associates che entrerà a far parte del Consiglio di amministrazione Bomgar. “Bomgar ha fama di azienda impegnata nello sviluppo incentrato sulle esigenze dei clienti, nella creazione di funzionalità intuitive dei prodotti e nell’offrire un servizio di alta qualità, e gode di un’eccellente reputazione tra clienti aziendali di grandi dimensioni. Riteniamo che Bomgar risponda in modo unico alle esigenze delle imprese di supporto alle tecnologie aziendali basate su funzionalità veramente differenziate di sicurezza, integrazione, collaborazione e gestione.”

“Siamo convinti che l’investimento di maggioranza effettuato da TA rappresenterà una significativa pietra miliare nell’evoluzione della nostra azienda e porterà Bomgar al livello successivo”, ha affermato Joel Bomgar, Fondatore e Amministratore delegato Bomgar. “TA offre preziose competenze negli investimenti, particolarmente nel settore tecnologico, il che aiuterà Bomgar a crescere, sia localmente sia a livello internazionale, e a espandersi in nuovi mercati. Diamo il benvenuto a TA nel nostro Consiglio di amministrazione e prevediamo una stretta collaborazione mentre continuiamo a offrire valore costantemente misurabile ai nostri clienti e li aiutiamo a fornire supporto tecnico di classe mondiale.”

Secondo IDC, dal 2012 il mercato del supporto in remoto clientless in cui Bomgar è presente, è cresciuto a un tasso annuale composto del 19%.

“Molte aziende hanno scoperto che i prodotti per chat e gli strumenti di accesso in remoto gratuiti da sempre utilizzati per il supporto tecnico sono inadeguati o non sicuri”, ha affermato Hythem T. El-Nazer, un Direttore TA Associates che entrerà pure a far parte del Consiglio di amministrazione Bomgar. “Inoltre, le grandi aziende richiedono piattaforme che supportino un’ampia gamma di dispositivi e sistemi operativi e siano scalabili, per l’impiego simultaneo da parte di migliaia di utenti. Dati gli elevati costi del supporto telefonico e della mobilizzazione continua dei dipendenti che utilizzano laptop, tablet e dispositivi portatili sia aziendali che personali, intravediamo opportunità continue di crescita per Bomgar.”

“Siamo molto lieti della collaborazione avviata con una società di investimenti di lunga esperienza come TA Associates,” ha affermato Matt Dircks, che è stato nominato Amministratore delegato Bomgar. “Vediamo numerose strade possibili per creare valore ancora più grande in Bomgar non solo accelerando la crescita organica realizzata dall’azienda sin dalla sua fondazione, ma anche studiando nuove interessanti opportunità di mercato. La consumerizzazione dell’IT, accoppiata all’influsso di dispositivi che costituiscono l’Internet delle cose, sta creando una richiesta di nuovi modi per accedere a sistemi remoti, supportarli e gestirli. Sotto la guida di TA, avremo esperienza e risorse ulteriori per sfruttare al massimo queste opportunità.”

Kirkland & Ellis LLP ha agito da consulente legale per TA Associates. Goodwin Procter LLP e Shea & Company hanno agito, rispettivamente, da consulente legale e consulente finanziario per Bomgar.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) brings together people, process, data and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before – transforming information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom.
