Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
Itasca, IL - January 15, 2019 Flexera, the company that's reimagining how software is bought, sold, managed and secured, announced Flexera (RightScale) has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms, published on 7 January 2019 and authored by Dennis Smith, et al. Gartner evaluated the RightScale CMP which includes cloud cost optimization offering, RightScale Optima. RightScale was acquired by Flexera in 2018.
“Flexera continues to stake its leadership position across a range of solutions that help C-level executives optimize spend, automate IT governance, and gain insights from data. We knew that when Flexera acquired RightScale that it would be transformational for Flexera and our customers,” said Jim Ryan, CEO of Flexera. “The Flexera and RightScale teams merged quickly and we are already well on our way in demonstrating the combined value of our industry leading Software Asset Management (SAM) and Cloud Management Platforms (CMP) solutions for our customers.”
Gartner said in its Critical Capabilities for Cloud Management Platforms, January 7, 2019 report, authored by Dennis Smith, et al., “By 2021, 75% of organizations without tooling to manage their multicloud environments will spend more than they would have had they stayed on-premises, and will also lack needed policy and governance capabilities, increasing the likelihood of security and/or compliance exposures.”
