Jersey City, NJ, United States, 2011/12/05 - Pitango Venture Capital and Index Ventures invested further in Evolven’s SaaS-based configuration management software, the industry’s most adaptive change management analytics - Evolven.com.
Pitango Venture Capital and Index Ventures completed another round of investment in Evolven Software, the provider of breakthrough change and configuration management software for the modern data center and cloud.
The Evolven solution was specifically designed to meet the demanding dynamics and complexity requirements driving today's IT environments. Evolven redefines change and configuration management with its groundbreaking software-as-a-service Change and Configuration Monitoring solution, enabling companies to dramatically increase the stability of their IT environments, reduce the risk of production outages, lower operating costs, and cut environment incident investigation time and effort.
"More than ever the industry is finding that existing IT change management and configuration management tools are too rigid and limited for collecting and analyzing comprehensive environment configuration information, especially at a granular level of detail," says Sasha Gilenson, Evolven CEO. "This round of investment from some of the world's leading venture capitalists shows the enthusiasm for bringing a new analytics driven SaaS-based model to allow IT operations to know exactly what has changed in their environments and maintain environment consistency."
Recently, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) senior analysts explored why it has never been more challenging to effectively cope with the impact of change and configuration issues in the modern data center. In the report, they identify Evolven as having unique qualities over other enterprise vendors, stating: "… none appear to have delivered as distinctive and adaptive a footprint in this arena as Evolven."
This round of financing will be used for further development of Evolven's SaaS-based Change Monitoring solution, targeting delivery to both the U.S. and European markets. Evolven is also available as an on-premise option.
"Evolven's SaaS model has a strong first-mover advantage, and an unprecedented opportunity to redefine configuration management, by making it accessible and consumable across IT operations," says Rona Segev-Gal, General Partner at Pitango Venture Capital,"Evolven is simple to use, it can be up and running in a few minutes and provides significant opportunities to improve IT operations, efficiency and time-to-value."
