ManageEngine to advance business IT alignment with help from Zoho
ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, has announced its strategy for advancing the state of IT management and aligning IT with business objectives. Parent company, the Zoho Corporation, plays a key role in the plans as ManageEngine will integrate Zoho’s cloud-based business apps with the industry’s broadest suite of IT management software. ManageEngine will continue to evolve its applications based on lessons gained from managing the Zoho Cloud, one of the largest public clouds in the world, and will continue to work on the contextual integration of the ManageEngine suite.
Relentless advances in cloud computing, mobility and other technologies are creating new opportunities and challenges for end-user organisations. However, IT teams are often hamstrung by multi-vendor IT management solutions that are functionally disconnected from each other and isolated from the rest of the organisation. In turn, IT teams and business units grow further out of sync as IT teams take longer to act on new opportunities while business productivity and continuity suffer, leaving business units to watch opportunities slip away.
“The future of IT is the intersection of technology and business,” said Raj Sabhlok, President of ManageEngine. “Most IT decisions are being made at the line of business or are being influenced at the line of business. IT teams need a suite of integrated tools that can help them work at that level, and we are uniquely qualified to deliver that suite. Zoho is the operating system for business and lives at the line of business. Working even more closely with Zoho puts ManageEngine where we need to be: helping to develop, deploy, manage and secure these critical business applications.”
