New York, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2007
Shunra, the leading provider of production readiness testing solutions, today announced that it has won Frost & Sullivan's 2006 Growth Strategy Leadership Award. The category for which Shunra won this top honor is the "World Network Performance Monitoring and Management Solutions Markets for Enterprises." Frost & Sullivan, a global growth consulting company, singled out Shunra from among more than 60 participants in the category, and honored Shunra with the top award based on the company's demonstration of an exceptional growth strategy within the industry.
"Shunra clearly stood out among its competitors for its successful penetration of new markets, strategic partnerships, technological innovations and exceptionally strong year over year revenue growth of more than 40 percent," said Olga Yashkova, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "Shunra's spectacular growth is the result of strategic vision and successful delivery of its Shunra VE products, which directly address the critical needs of global enterprise organizations, ISV/IHV and carriers. Frost & Sullivan expects Shunra to continue succeeding in this rapidly growing market in the coming years as well."
According to Frost & Sullivan, the network performance monitoring and management solutions market for enterprises is currently at its growth stage. Penetrating new markets, strategic partnerships, and technological innovation are the major strategies implemented by successful market participants like Shunra to gain market share.
To determine the recipient in the Growth Strategy Leadership category, Frost & Sullivan researched and compared all candidate companies' revenues year-to-year to determine growth patterns. The award was given to the company that had bolstered its position in the market during the base year and whose strategy will have a lasting impact on the market.
"We're extremely proud to have been awarded this honor, and we see it as further validation of Shunra's leadership in this industry," said Thomas Charlton, Shunra Software CEO. "Our competitors can't match Shunra VE's highly robust, comprehensive solutions that give customers the information they need to make accurate, actionable decisions about application and network performance throughout the development lifecycle quickly and easily. This is a key reason why so many leading companies worldwide have chosen Shunra VE over competitors' products, and why we look forward to accelerating our growth in 2007 and beyond."
Other recent awards won by Shunra include Internet Telephony Magazine's Product of the Year award for both 2006 and 2007, Internet Telephony Magazine's 2006 Best of Show award, and the 2006 IT Standard Editors Choice Award. Shunra is also a 2006 Deloitte Fast 500 EMEA finalist, a 2006 Red Herring 200 Europe finalist, and a 2007 "Best Systems Management" finalist and 2006 "Best Software Testing" finalist for the highly contested CODiE Awards chosen each year by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA).
Shunra VE is a highly robust, comprehensive network simulation solution that creates a virtual network environment in the pre-deployment lab. It delivers a powerful, flexible and easy way to test the performance of applications and network equipment under a wide variety of network impairments - exactly as if they were running in a real production environment - throughout the development lifecycle. With Shunra VE, users understand the impact that the network and applications have on each others' performance and on remote end-users' experiences, and can uncover and resolve production-related problems - before rollout.
In addition to the empirical experience, Shunra VE provides a wide range of graphically rich reports and drill-down analysis capabilities. These help isolate and resolve the root causes of network and application problems early and determine whether any modifications to the application, network or infrastructure are needed.
