Pneuron Wins a Place on CRN’s Emerging Vendors List for 2016

Another big validation of Pneuron, our team, and the transformational progress our customers are realizing with our innovations. Everyone here at Pneuron is excited about the fact that we’ve just been named on CRN’s 2016 list of Emerging Vendors. This annual list is all about recognizing technological innovation and highlighting the companies that are shaking things up in the IT channel.  And it’s about the firms and individuals that are looking to the future — and they are seeing Pneuron. It’s the second year in a row, and just adds more validation on top of MIT’s Most Innovative Enterprise Technology in 2014, Gartner’s 2015 Cool Vendor Award and another big one being announced in a couple of weeks.

We are committed to cutting the time and cost of solving business problems and we believe passionately in Pneuron’s distributed approach, as we look to challenge the established and entrenched hegemony of traditional centralized strategies to solve hard business problems. As we have said before: Solving heterogeneous, diverse and distributed business problems with the traditional homogenize and centralize deployment model will increasingly fail. We’re at close to 80% failure rate now, so something needs to change.  The fact that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, sees us as a stand-out solution provider is vindication of our mission.

Pneuron, by avoiding an architectural approach that necessitates the costly and time-consuming construction of a monolithic system to centralize and homogenize data, has shown that enterprises can leverage existing applications, infrastructure, services, and data to extract actionable intelligence in a fraction of the time and cost of any other existing approach. Pneuron does this in a way that is non-invasive, non-competitive to your existing investments, easy to use and deploy, agile and creates value in hours and days, not months or years.

Legacy systems and data, M&A, IT siloes and organizations, increasing demands for rapid, agile value, IoT and the proliferation of data and analytics sources are increasingly too complex to integrate and leverage.

This validation also reflects there’s a growing market awareness that many of these business challenges are not really about big data at the root. Rather they are much more about the diversity and distribution of the elements of a business solution. Legacy systems and data, M&A, IT siloes and organizations, increasing demands for rapid, agile value, IoT and the proliferation of data and analytics sources are increasingly too complex to integrate and leverage.

The pursuit of an all-knowing centralized system is actually causing many more problems that often are not considered. For example, moving and duplicating data represents an unnecessary security risk. It inevitably increases the potential surface area for an attack, and as a result relies on monolithic security deployments instead of layers of increasing strength. And secondly, these centralization models are so time-consuming that the quality and relevancy of your data declines during the process.

Current Approach: The pursuit of an all-knowing centralized system is actually causing many more problems that often are not considered.

Eighty percent of every project at the moment is spent in preparing the environment to create value. Not creating any value, just preparing for it. I challenge anyone to tell me why this is not ridiculous. As a result, the promised benefits never materialize and companies are left saddled with an expensive system that simply isn’t fit for purpose. This approach employs a boat load of people but does nothing for the bottom line, the competitiveness of the firm, or the success of the firm.

Because centralizing and normalizing data is demonstrably failing to deliver the expected results, it’s time the problem was reassessed and we approached it from a different perspective. That’s why Pneuron is getting such interest and validation.

Pneuron’s approach provides true scalability and agility by plugging into existing systems and orchestrating the answer across sources instead of forcing them together before asking the question.

Pneuron takes the analytics to the data, orchestrating reports, solutions, applications, even entire operating models as a network, or “fabric” that interacts non-invasively with any source, any system, any technology. The result is Pneuron customers can create business value without the need of the data and systems integration of the past. Business value through bypassing IT systems and data integration.  This approach provides true scalability and agility by plugging into existing systems and orchestrating the answer across sources instead of forcing them together before asking the question.

Shortening the distance between the data and the results creates business value far more quickly and cheaply. It allows for simple business solutions that leverage complex systems and data topographies with thousands of different databases, legacy infrastructures, cloud-based resources and mobile computing platforms. Instead of throwing out everything we’ve developed and bought for the last few years in favor of a single data repository, let’s just plug into our existing assets and apply an intelligent fabric on top to bring us the valuable insights we need. Quick, simple, agile and hugely powerful.

With the availability of Pneuron 2.0, we’re proud to be providing enterprises with an alternative to fundamentally flawed traditional application strategies for solving data and process-related business challenges. Pneuron is fast and effective, but don’t take our word for it.

“The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016.”

If you’re already using Pneuron we’re glad to have you aboard, if not, come and talk to us and give us an opportunity to show you why CRN is right to highlight us.
