Helping IT executives turn insight into action
Companies spend millions on IT, year after year, without a clear picture of where it goes or how effectively it’s spent. Flexera shines a light into this technology black hole so executives can understand exactly what’s in their IT ecosystem. We help business leaders transform these IT insights into decisive action, allowing them to expand their IT advantage and accelerate their business.
OUR PROUD HISTORY
A history of transforming IT
Since day one, Flexera has sought to be an essential IT optimization resource, from developing one of the most widely used tools for software packaging (InstallShield) more than 30 years ago to acquiring the market leader in cloud management (RightScale) in 2018, and cloud migration planning (RISC Networks) in 2019.
Today, Flexera continues to search out new ways to expand and evolve our solutions, always seeking to help companies realize the power of IT to transform their business.
InstallShield is born. This is the first major entry by the company into the software market during the early days of what would eventually become Flexera.
FlexNet Manager for Engineering Applications is launched. The FlexNet Manager solutions will become the industry standard for software management.
AdminStudio is developed. This helps further InstallShield's place in the application management space with a powerful tool. The same year, software giant Macrovision acquires InstallShield.
Acresso Software is spun off from Macrovision as a private company. In 2009, Acresso officially changes its name to Flexera Software.
App Portal (now App Broker) is added to Flexera’s line of solutions. This gives the company the ability to provide enterprises with a self-service app store, changing how they deliver software to employees.
The products that would become Software Vulnerability Manager and Software Vulnerability Research are added to Flexera’s solution portfolio. With these solutions, Flexera helps enterprises safeguard software from hackers with backing from a trusted research team.
Flexera acquires BDNA and, with it, Technopedia, the world’s largest repository of IT asset data. This forms the backbone of our Data Platform solution, providing deep insight into IT ecosystems.
SaaS Manager, along with Cloud Management Platform and Optima from RightScale, are brought into Flexera’s line of solutions. Flexera’s cloud offerings have led to the company being named a leader in cloud management platforms by Gartner.
Flexera strengthens its presence in the cloud management arena by acquiring RISC Networks and adding Foundation and CloudScape to its list of integrated solutions. Now customers are supported at every step, from migration to management, in their cloud journey.
