BridgeWays announces acquisition of Nubigenus.

Acquisition enhances BridgeWays monitoring portfolio by enabling enterprise-level risk monitoring via the Cloud.  

New Haven, Connecticut, July 29, 2014 — BridgeWays, a leading provider of monitoring, management and reporting solutions, announced today it had completed the acquisition of exclusive rights of the Nubigenus Ltd. software assets and intellectual property (IP).

Nubigenus is a UK-based privately-held company that provides web-based access to System Center monitoring capabilities via a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model.

“Our current suite of products—Management Packs for System Center Operations Manager—are for the enterprise market, however, we recognized a need for a simplified yet enterprise-level capable monitoring solution for the SMB market,” said Sanjib Kumar, Executive Vice President, Global Strategy and Business Development at BridgeWays. “Acquiring the Nubigenus IP allows us to offer a solution to the SMB market as well as the large enterprises which our solutions have traditionally served.”

The Nubigenus solution has been branded Tibanna and is currently in Beta testing. Tibanna will be released in August, 2014.

Tibanna offers affordable cloud-based monitoring for small to medium-sized businesses, Managed Service Providers and enterprises. As a simplified web-based portal powered by Microsoft System Center, Tibanna is accessible from anywhere and at any time. There are no limitations to the number of endpoints that can be monitored within Tibanna.

“The Nubigenus team is most pleased to have been able to help BridgeWays complete their suite of System Center offerings with their first cloud-based product,” said Simon Skinner, MVP, Managing Director of Nubigenus,  “We are excited to bring Tibanna to small and medium-sized organizations around the world.”

New Product Beta Release: Tibanna, an enterprise cloud-based monitoring solution for anyone, anywhere.

New Haven, Connecticut, May 12, 2014 — BridgeWays Software is pleased to announce the Beta release of a new product, Tibanna, an enterprise cloud-based monitoring solution for anyone, anywhere.

Tibanna is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that utilizes Microsoft’s System Center to provide small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) enterprise-level capability for monitoring their IT environment.

“We recognized that the future of many software solutions resides in the Cloud because the Cloud can allow SMBs and MSPs affordable access to enterprise tools,” said Sanjib Kumar, Vice President Global Strategy & Business Development at BridgeWays.

Unlike an on-premise enterprise management and monitoring solution, Tibanna has a web-based portal that takes only minutes to deploy. Many of the steps to deployment and tasks for maintenance are virtually eliminated, allowing administrators more time and greater productivity managing and monitoring their IT infrastructure. In addition, administrators—with System Center already deployed—can use Tibanna to check the health of their current System Center deployment.

“Our current suite of products—Management Packs for System Center Operations Manager—are for the enterprise-level market,” said Sanjib Kumar. “We recognized that there was a need for enterprise-level monitoring solutions within the SMB market and we aligned with Nubigenus because they had already begun the process of developing a solution in this marketplace.”

“As a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP), I was quite familiar with deploying Microsoft’s System Center for many clients,” said Simon Skinner, MVP, Managing Director of Nubigenus. “We built the portal for current System Center administrators to easily check on the health of their internal/external deployment, and for businesses, who normally wouldn’t be able to afford a large-scale deployment of System Center, to receive its benefits. BridgeWays is helping us take this exciting new solution to market.”

BridgeWays announces intent to acquire Nubigenus.

Acquisition enhances BridgeWays monitoring portfolio by enabling enterprise-level risk monitoring via the Cloud.  

New Haven, Connecticut, May 9, 2014 — BridgeWays, a leading provider of monitoring, management and reporting solutions for System Center, announced today its intent to acquire exclusive rights of the Nubigenus Ltd. software assets and intellectual property (IP).

“As part of our strategy to move into the cloud and offer operations risk monitoring and management solutions to small and medium-sized businesses,” said Ken Marcia, CEO of BridgeWays. “We plan to bring to market enterprise-level monitoring solutions that are affordable and accessible. Licensing the Nubigenus IP, on a worldwide basis, is a key step in that direction and positions us to serve the needs of the SMB customers as well as the large enterprises.”

Nubigenus is a UK-based privately-held company that provides web-based access to System Center monitoring capabilities via a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)/Cloud model.

“Nubigenus was established with one goal in mind,” said Simon Skinner, MVP, Managing Director of Nubigenus. “To leverage the power of a proactive solution, offering organizations an enterprise tool that will increase their uptime; and therefore, their competitiveness.”

The Nubigenus solution offers simple, yet, comprehensive enterprise-level monitoring with a mult-tenant portal—there are no limitations to the number of endpoints. As a web-based portal, the Nubigenus solution is ready now for anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Microsoft’s System Center is an IT management solution that unifies management across on-premise, hybrid and off-premise environments. As an example, a toolset within System Center, System Center Operations Manager, allows IT administrators to manage and monitor their network systems and applications through a single, “pane-of-glass” console. It’s a holistic and proactive monitoring solution.

“Several companies offer enterprise-level IT monitoring solutions,” said Sanjib Kumar, Vice President Global Strategy & Business Development at BridgeWays. “However, providing small to medium-sized business and Managed Service Providers with enterprise-level solutions via the Cloud is a high growth and largely untapped market. Through the addition of the Nubigenus IP, BridgeWays will expand its product portfolio to include cloud-based monitoring and management solutions for this target market.”

The agreement is expected to close within the next 30 to 60 days.
