Ensim Selected as a Finalist for 2013-14 Cloud Awards Program
Ensim Automation Suite a Finalist in Multiple Categories for Respected International Awards Program
SANTA CLARA, CA – December 17, 2013 — Ensim Corporation, a leading provider of automation and orchestration solutions for users and organizations with business applications, services and infrastructure in private, public, and hybrid clouds, has been shortlisted in the 2013-2014 Cloud Awards Program in the Best Cloud Payment, Chargeback or Billing Solution and Best Cloud Automation Solution categories for its Ensim Automation Suite.
The Ensim Automation Suite enables service providers and enterprises to deploy a complete and turn-key solution for marketplace, service catalog, provisioning, and chargeback / billing, with complete workflow orchestration and automation. Many competing solutions are unable to support the granular product modeling necessary for cloud service delivery and cannot track and consequently bill for all the various elements that comprise an offer, causing the provider to miss out on revenue opportunities. Ensim Automation Suite, on the other hand, supports the provider’s cloud marketplace and all related processes and has the workflow orchestration intelligence to understand how to bring together services with subscriptions in the same order, in the same offer, and in the same model.
“Every year, we think we must have met the ceiling on how high the standard of entries will get. Every year those expectations are smashed, as a new wave of Cloud pioneers and innovators shows us their successes – and more importantly, their drive for success,” said Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson. “Cloud technologies are like no other, showing a remarkable ability to act as a catalyst for scalable, intuitive, hardworking solutions for business and modern life. We are lucky enough to be able to showcase some of the brightest and best.”
Identifying and celebrating excellence in the field of cloud computing, the cloud computing awards program encourages entries from across the entire globe. Over 200 organizations entered, with entries coming from Europe, the U.S., Canada, Australia and the Middle East.
“The rapid proliferation of cloud computing has revolutionized the way companies operate and created many new challenges,” said David Wippich, CEO of Ensim. “Ensim aims to enable our customers to adapt and thrive in an environment where they need to be able to make effective use of the cloud as an essential part of their business model. This recognition further validates the capabilities of the Ensim Automation Suite and it’s an honor be included on such a prestigious list.”
Ensim’s solutions have been deployed across a broad range of organizations of every shape and size around the world with over 300 major deployments in over 30 countries. Some examples include: a financial services enterprise with nearly 300,000 users with significant regulatory compliance needs; a telecom operator with 1,000,000 users; a mid-sized company with 5,000 users across three countries; a cloud hosting company; a global defense contractor with 160,000 staff in 20 countries with critical governmental security requirements; a consumer hosting company with over one million users; a University with 20,000 students on Google Gmail and 1,500 faculty and staff on Microsoft Exchange; and an MSP which services medium-sized enterprises in healthcare, legal and financial services with critical security and compliance requirements.
Final winners will be announced on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014.
