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.

Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...
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...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
