This week we announced our Q4 2016 results, and we are ecstatic to report 76 percent net new sales growth. This is the result of incredible traction from our software-as-a-service (SaaS) business, the global sales channel, and the addition of lots of new customers.
The collaboration with each and every one of our customers across the IT ecosystem is a key reason we continue to outpace the industry. Zenoss works tirelessly to enable our customers to have complete visibility into their unique physical, virtual, cloud and converged environments. In a recent customer release, Acxiom noted the truly trusted vendor partnership Zenoss has with them.
"All platform migrations are difficult, and updating core monitoring services in conjunction with ITSM retooling is a complicated venture allowing little tolerance for impact," said Chris Donaldson, director of automation and monitoring at Acxiom. "Zenoss has demonstrated their continued focus on enabling Acxiom's successful implementation of a modern monitoring platform."
We believe in peer collaboration, and that is the premise of our three-day annual user conference, GalaxZ. The biggest IT monitoring and analytics event of the year, GalaxZ has a distinguished award program, the Z Awards. These are designed to recognize and celebrate top IT organizations and partners that display exceptional innovation, leadership and collaboration in IT Ops and DevOps. It’s your turn to shine and be recognized!
We invite all of you to tell us about your excellent leadership skills, or describe the vision you set for IT service assurance within your organization. Entries will be accepted through Tuesday, February 7. Finalists will be announced March 1, and winners will be announced April 11 at the Z Awards ceremony. Zenoss partners and customers who have Zenoss Core, ZSD or ZaaS deployments are eligible for a Z Award.
