Sonoa's on-demand service employs the RightScale Cloud Management Platform
On-demand IT Governance Leader to Leverage Cloud-Based Solution for API Management
SANTA CLARA, CA May 26, 2009 Sonoa Systems, Inc., an innovative provider of analytics, management and governance solutions for cloud services and APIs, today announced that Innotas, an on-demand leader in IT Governance, has selected Sonoa as its API management solution to provide visibility and control to its API services. As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, Innotas is dedicated to providing consistent superior service to its subscription-based customers, and offering its services via APIs to enterprise customers is an extension of this commitment.
Web-based API services allow Innotas to provide unique capabilities in the IT Governance space. When introducing APIs to its customers, Innotas wanted to ensure it had visibility into how the applications were being accessed so that it could guarantee control and security to its customer base and differentiate its offerings with an API that provides service levels higher than on-premise alternatives. With Sonoa, Innotas is able to gain insight into how the services are being accessed and by whom. This information gives Innotas the ability to effectively manage the services over the Web and afford quality for its subscription-based customers.
"As a SaaS provider, our customers rely on Innotas for a consistent high-level of service," said Tim Madewell, VP operations & development at Innotas. "Sonoa’s analytics and visibility allow us to extend that promise and guarantee SLAs and mediate service. Sonoa lets us differentiate our services so that we can tell our customers that our API is as secure and robust as anything they can buy or build on-premise."
With Sonoa’s cloud-based solution, Innotas can easily plug into API management capabilities, rather than building out the infrastructure from the bottom-up. With multiple customers depending on each application, insight into API analytics allows Innotas to quickly mediate any potential service disruptions and configure policy management to ensure SLAs are met.
"Innotas is a prime example of how businesses are adopting cloud services to bring more value to their customers," said Chet Kapoor, CEO of Sonoa Systems. "Innotas is bringing traditional IT Governance services to customers with APIs in a smart and new way. Using Sonoa’s analytics gives Innotas the management solutions they need to meet SLAs and keep customers happy."
Innotas is another customer leveraging Sonoa’s on-demand service to get to market quickly. To accelerate its own on-demand offering and guarantee enterprise-level quality of service, Sonoa's on-demand service employs the RightScale Cloud Management Platform to ensure deep management and monitoring capability.
"With RightScale and Sonoa, customers like Innotas can get up and running very quickly in the cloud and benefit from fully automated cloud management along with sophisticated analytics and monitoring," said Michael Crandell, RightScale CEO. "Innotas is an excellent example of companies that are using innovative solutions to ensure that their cloud deployments are highly scalable, manageable, robust and compliant."
