ISELIN, N.J., April 23, 2009 – SYS-CON Media, the world’s leading i-technology media and events company, has announced that eG Innovations, Inc., a global supplier of business service monitoring software for virtual and physical IT infrastructures, is among the winners of its annual Virtualization Journal Readers’ Choice Awards. SYS-CON’s Readers’ Choice Awards, also known as the "Oscars of the Software Industry," has been one of the most prestigious industry award programs for over a decade.
The Virtualization Journal Readers’ Choice Awards recognize the best tools, solutions and platform offerings in 18 categories. Winners are selected through reader-submitted nominations, followed by online voting at SYS-CON Media’s Virtualization Journal online magazine site.
"This year’s results show that the future of enterprise IT is as bright as ever and reflect an infrastructure industry that is completely committed to product excellence and to providing maximum value for each IT dollar spent." said Jeremy Geelan, senior vice president of SYS-CON Media. "In fact, the winners and finalists were as strong this year as in any year since the Readers’ Choice Awards program began thirteen years ago."
"We compete with many companies that are much larger than we are, but our continued success in award programs such as SYS-CON’s is proof that you do not have to be the biggest to be the best," said Srinivas Ramanathan, founder, president and CEO of eG Innovations.
"Unlike other industry solutions that view the virtualization components as a silo, our eG Enterprise solution offers end-to-end, holistic monitoring, management and reporting of the virtual, physical and application infrastructure," Ramanathan said. "By capturing key performance indicators of the virtual infrastructure and correlating them with the performance of the business services they support, eG Enterprise provides a common platform from where service administrators, helpdesk staff, virtualization experts and domain and application experts can all view the performance of the infrastructure from their perspectives. This way, they can quickly determine where the bottlenecks lie, and whose responsibility it is to resolve the problem."
