Ipanema, which Infovista acquired in 2015, is becoming an increasingly important part of their business, and the MSP channel is becoming a more important part of that, as Ipanema broadens out its channel strategy beyond large telco partners.
From a product perspective, Savision’s IT Operation solution that integrates and controls monitoring, cloud, and service management tools data in a single pane of glass will enable Martello’s UC/SD-WAN offering to have this same seamless capability. From a business point of view, it doubles Martello’s sales and marketing resources, strengthens their channel, and turns their European presence from minor into a real strength.
The SD-WAN space has lately attracted the focus of big players like Cisco and VMware. Martello, which has been in business for years, is about to go public through a reverse takeover, and believes that their differentiated solution gives them something that they can take to market successfully through the channel against the big boys.
