Predictive Analytics Leader Recognized for Virtualization and Cloud Management at One of the World's 10 Largest Banks


RESTON, Va.– May 23, 2011Netuitive, Inc., the leading provider of predictive analytics for IT, today announced that IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program has selected Netuitive’s customer deployment (one of the world’s 10 largest banks) as a 2011 Laureate. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.

Netuitive was chosen based on its key role in the banks IT initiative involving migration and integration of distributed IT infrastructure into the banks’ virtual data center.  Plans call for a private cloud service delivery model involving virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) encompassing more than 100,000 virtual machines powering multiple storage and network platforms.

This year's honorees will be presented at the Annual Laureates Medal Ceremony & Gala Awards on June 20, 2011 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.

“The number and quality of nominations this year were very inspiring and demonstrate how valuable IT is to community change,” said John Amato, Publisher, Computerworld.  “Computerworld is very proud to name the 2011 class of Laureates and showcase their initiatives benefiting society through innovative uses of IT.”

“Netuitive is proud to be recognized as a Computerworld Honors Laureate for providing key virtual data center management for one of the world’s largest banks,” said Nicola Sanna, Netuitive CEO.  “Only through a math-based, predictive analytics approach can large enterprises gain the visibility required to effectively manage performance of virtualized applications as well as their legacy IT infrastructure.”

Netuitive’s large enterprise customers include eight of the world’s 10 largest banks and several global telecommunications firms that rely on Netuitive to predict degradations and avoid outages for their most critical applications.  One global telco reported that it is using Netuitive to analyze more than a million metrics simultaneously allowing it to eliminate 3,480 hours annually in service degradation representing a business savings of $18 million.
