– Seth Bostock, President and COO of IndependenceIT, says:
With the increasing demand for mobile and device-independent access to applications and data, organizations are seeking competitive solutions to capitalize on these requirements and further improve infrastructure. Businesses are also demanding greater scalability and agility for workplace IT that allows users to work anywhere, anytime and on any device. The adoption of cloud workspace technology is a testament to the increasing importance of solutions in this category.
Supporting this demand, IndependenceIT has announced several business milestones, including key partnerships, channel ecosystem expansion and impressive growth over the past 12 months as demand for its Cloud Workspace® software exceeded expectations. Leading the growth metrics for 2014, seat count for IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite rose more than 330% year-over-year, easily beating IDC’s forecast for compound annual growth rate (CAGR) forecast for IT Cloud Services of 26.4%, which is already many times that of the IT industry overall.
2014 has been an exceptional year for IndependenceIT as the number of booked seats increased substantially over the previous year to reach new heights, boosting top line sales by more than 70%. Additionally, the channel focused cloud workspace software developer doubled its service provider partner ecosystem year-over-year, boosting the availability of its technology to organizations around the world, and introduced several new infrastructure partners including Microsoft Azure, Artisan Infrastructure, GCI Managed Cloud Solutions and Google Compute Engine.
