LEXINGTON, MA, October 18, 2012 – Ipswitch Network Management Division, developer of the WhatsUp Gold suite of innovative IT management software, today announced it has been named a winner of the Midsize Enterprise Summit (MES) West 2012 XCellence Awards in the category of Best Midsize Enterprise Summit Newcomer. Sponsored by XChange Events, the Midsize Enterprise Summit XCellence Awards measure overall IT decision makers' perceptions of vendor products/services, presentations, and presence during MES West. By winning the prestigious XCellence Awards, the Ipswitch Network Management Division continues to demonstrate its commitment to understanding the unique needs of the midsize enterprise IT market.
As the winner of Best Midsize Enterprise Summit Newcomer, the overall presence of the Ipswitch Network Management Division stood out among new sponsors and was recognized by attendees. The event was a great opportunity to network with CIOs and learn first-hand about their concerns. Some of the topics that the team discussed with attendees included concerns about BYOD, meeting mandatory compliance regulations, and managing increased IT complexity with reduced budgets and limited resources. The attendees selected WhatsUp Gold because of the unique approach to IT management provided a better fit to their specific ecosystems, problems and organizational needs than any other solution at MES.
“We were honored to receive the Best Midsize Enterprise Summit Newcomer XCellence Award,” stated Pat Loring, Vice President of North America Sales at Ipswitch’s Network Management Division. “The attendees recognized how our easy to customize solution can simplify their complex IT problems into single, powerful views that would enable rapid visualization, isolation and resolution of IT problems before they impacted their users, customers and businesses. The leaders who told us they want to differentiate from their competitors saw us as a company who gives them that advantage.”
The awards were presented at the Midsize Enterprise Summit West held September 12th through the 14th at the JW Marriott in San Antonio, Texas. With an agenda designed to address IT re-investment strategies, MES West 2012 brought together industry experts and practitioners to discuss the specific needs of the midmarket and how to best drive IT innovation despite an environment of tight cost control. The conference provided IT executives with exclusive access to industry research, thought provoking keynote sessions, interactive boardroom appointments, a solutions pavilion featuring exhibitors from both emerging and established vendors, as well as peer to peer networking opportunities.
