Gartner Has Named Us A Cool Vendor!


We know – it’s not cool to talk about how cool you are, right? However, when someone else, especially an industry-leading, globally recognized technology research and analysis firm like Gartner wants to point it out, then we think it’s a worthwhile opportunity to explore why.

Awarding us as a “Cool Vendor” in their Unified Workspaces category, Gartner states in their report that:

“The traditional desktop environment that organizations are deploying to users is old and tired. It prevents organizations from being agile, and limits the creativity and innovation of users. In the digital workplace, users need to be able to consume IT-provided applications from different sources, on whatever device they choose. They need to have the ability to innovate using devices and applications that the organization’s IT department has not done a full analysis and regression test on, yet IT must ensure that new ways of working won’t prevent the legacy and well-tested applications they use from being deployed. In our inquiries with clients, organizations are asking how to solve this problem. Unified workspaces allow the mix of IT-provided and user selected technologies to coexist in peace, harmony and productivity. Vendors in the unified workspaces market can help organizations provision applications and data across multiple devices in a user-centric manner. I&O leaders responsible for mobile and endpoint strategies should identify innovative products that will help realize their unified workspaces vision.”

Being recognized for our innovation in the field of unified workspaces is a big honor for the CloudJumper team – we take a lot of pride in the work that we do and the solutions we offer our clients, and so it means a lot to be named a Cool Vendor by Gartner.

So, without further ado, please excuse us while we explore just how cool we are…

To start, there’s the simple fact that we’re pioneers when it comes to unified workspaces, and the cloud computing industry as a whole – we’ve been at this longer than almost anyone else. For 16 years now we’ve been developing our Workspace as a Service solution, Cloud Workspace®, and testing it with the likes of Microsoft, Google and Intuit. This means that our many partners in cloud technology don’t just get our WaaS solution; they get the industry-leading expertise and experience that comes with it as well.

Furthermore, this makes us a trusted standard in the cloud industry. When big names like MS, VMWare and NetApp needed to determine how their products would perform in the cloud, they came to us, because we had been around long to enough to offer a realistic and effective proving ground in the cloud for their latest innovations. This is all just a part of being on the cutting-edge of the cloud, as compared to hopping on the band wagon years after the fact.

Together, our experience building our solution and in working with industry leaders has allowed us to develop the single most robust, stable best-priced solution available on the market. That’s right, don’t forget about the price – whereas latecomers are often unable to properly judge what the expenses will be for their new cloud service, we’ve been around long enough to determine the perfect price to keep us successful, offer unbeatable margins to our MSP partners, and still deliver an affordable price for end users.

As if all that wasn’t enough, we’re still active in trying to make our product even better for our partners and end-users. At the moment, that means building the best partner portal on the market in order to better support our channel and how they market Cloud Workspace®. In August we were proud to roll out our Customer Management Module, which allows partners to comprehensively manage the customer life-cycle from one simple portal – did we mention this is an industry first?

Now, to be fair, there is something that our Customer Management Module can’t handle: migration to Cloud Workspace® – we’re building a solution for that as well! Currently in beta testing, JumpStart will fully manage the ground-to-cloud deployment of new customers into our Cloud Workspace®, saving even more time and effort for our partners as they onboard new clients. At one point in time, migration to a new cloud environment could take as long as six months to perform. Over our sixteen years in the business we’ve worked hard to shorten that process to three months, then one month, then just a few weeks – soon, with JumpStart, it’ll only take a few hours from start to finish.

So what makes us cool? We have the experience and expertise to do WaaS right, giving our MSP partners the tools they need to work efficiently and quickly – so what are you waiting for? Start working with the cool kids today.
