Stackify itself might just prove to be the next big thing.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
Last week, Stackify, a provider of tools that improve developers’ ability to support, manage and monitor their enterprise applications, was named a “Company to Watch” by Software Development Times (SD Times).
The publication says its inaugural list of 22 companies includes technology providers that are “emerging, impactful and growing in influence.” Click here for the complete list.
In 2012, Matt Watson founded Stackify to give developers access to everything they need to support and troubleshoot the applications that they create. As the former chief technology officer of a large development team, Watson realized that the rise in agile development caused developers to be more involved in day-to-day IT operations, but these teams lacked the DevOps tools and server access to do it efficiently.
“Agile development causes rapid change in IT environments, which also creates numerous application support challenges,” said Watson. “Developers need more visibility to the entire application stack in order to resolve those issues quickly.”
“[Stackify’s] solution gives developers visibility into production systems, helping them solve application problems more quickly and be better able to support applications in production,” said SD Times’ editorial board.
Stackify combines essential tools that developers need for application support into one integration solution. Most developers lack visibility to production server environments and are forced to engage development managers and system administrators to do simple tasks. Stackify gives developers safe and secure remote access to look at log files, config files, server health, databases and more.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by SD Times, and appreciate the DevOps community’s growing interest in our company,” said Watson. “We’re looking forward to publicly launching Stackify later this year as we strive to reinvent how software developers provide application support.”
SD Times has followed Stackify’s startup journey since July 2012 when editor David Rubinstein wrote, “Stackify itself might just prove to be the next big thing.”
