InteQ, a leading provider of On Demand IT Service Management , announced today that InfraDesk was selected by Forrester Research, Inc., to be included in “Market Overview: IT Service Management Support Tools”, Forrester Research, Inc., March 2010. After extensive research and interviews with end users, InfraDesk was named a “unique offering.”

“To be recognized by a leading independent research firm like Forrester is an honor. We are extremely excited that InfraDesk has been included in this report based on the product and its functionality,” stated Yash Shah, President and CTO, InteQ. “We entered this market with the intent to disrupt traditional on-premise software solutions and provide a more cost effective and efficient way for organizations to provide support to their end users and believe we have done just that. Companies can now adopt a proven and robust SaaS solution rapidly while lowering the total cost of ownership and not sacrifice functionality.”
Shah continues, “InfraDesk has been successfully introduced and adopted by enterprise customers in a market place that has not seen much innovation in recent years. This unique offering from InteQ when combined with industry’s only InteQ SaaS Assurance Program provides one of the best opportunities for IT organizations to switch without taking on any implementation risks.”
