Roseville, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2011
SAManage, a leading provider of SaaS-based IT management software, today announced that it has partnered with Winvale, a Washington, D.C. government sales consultancy to make its products available to federal, state, and local government agencies. Through the alliance, the US public sector will have access to SAManage’s cutting-edge IT Asset Management (ITAM) and IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions on Winvale’s GSA Information Technology Schedule GS-35F-0074S and on apps.gov, the GSA source for cloud computing applications.
“At SAManage, we’re excited to offer governmental agencies a SaaS-based IT management solution that dovetails perfectly with the administration’s cloud-first strategy,” said Darroll Buytenhuys, President of SAManage. Through the new alliance with Winvale, public sector users can now leverage all the power of enterprise-grade ITAM/ITSM while breaking the vicious hardware/software upgrade cycle that plagues on-premise IT asset and service management solutions. Since SAManage is delivered entirely via the cloud, users can manage their IT assets and services from any Internet-connected device.
As part of White House CIO Vivek Kundra’s push to move more and more governmental IT to the cloud, OMB recently released the cloud computing strategy for the federal government. Under this strategy, about one quarter of the federal government’s $80 billion dollar per year IT budget could be moved to the cloud, resulting in gains in robustness, flexibility, and cost savings.
“SAManage reduces total cost of ownership,” said Buytenhuys, “but it also provides better management in the bargain, helping users to easily and quickly organize software licenses and contracts, check for compliance gaps, and manage their service desks, equipment, and other facets of IT operations -- wherever those users are physically located.”
Available on Apps.gov in addition to Winvale’s GSA Information Technology Schedule GS-35F-0074S, SAManage can be deployed in days, not months, and frequent feature upgrades are immediately accessible to every user. "The introduction of the SAManage solutions to the federal sector is very timely, given the aggressive move of the Obama administration to cloud computing and specifically to Software as a Service," said Kevin Lancaster, "the rapid deployment and substantial total cost of ownership advantages will make SAManage an attractive alternative for federal, state and local entities."
SAManage is a leading global provider of SaaS-based IT management solutions that help organizations better control their IT inventory, organize licenses and contracts, detect risks and license compliance gaps, and provide IT help desk service. SAManage empowers companies of all sizes with IT management capabilities that were previously available only to large organizations, making it easy to automate and simplify the daily tasks associated with establishing IT governance, control, compliance, and user satisfaction.
