eG Solutions, reseller of the eG enterprise performance management product in New Zealand, hopes to have one or more of its current proof-of-concepts (POC) with its solution turn into a full-scale implementation in the new year.
“The hold back for most of these companies is the financial element of it all. That is indicative of the fact that for most of these firms budgets will be finalised and capital confirmed for the new fiscal only after a few months. Post this, we hope to see some of our POCs turn into full deployments,” says Teresa Martin, operations manager at eG Solutions.
Set up in July this year, the company focuses on providing the tool from eG enterprise to companies - large and small - that need infrastructure monitoring with real-time updates, coupled with root-cause analysis.
“eG’s product gives firms a single window of visibility while monitoring the infrastructure and provides them a cost-effective way to keep an eye on their virtual machines or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) or Citrix, or a combination of all three. There are a lot of monitoring tools out there, but eG can also provide a root-cause analysis around 85 per cent of the time. it is only the rest of the 15 per cent of the time that companies would need to call in specialists to see where the problem is and try to rectify it.
It can either replace their current monitoring tool, or work along with a selection of the tools that they already have in place,” says Sean Martin, technical consultant with the firm.
Martin says that eG is also in talks with service providers, who could potentially offer the capabilities of the solution as a service to their customers for monitoring and ensuring the health of the infrastructure.
Depending on growth in the new year, the firm will look to re-invest and hire more sales and technical staff.
“This will be strictly based on growth. We are in the process of creating awareness and visibility now. We believe 2014 is going to be a big year for us. There are great opportunities and we will work to tap it. We will look to increase our sales and technical staff based on the interest we see from the market,” concludes Martin.
