Goliath Technologies acquires Monitoring as a Service provider, TransformaTech, to meet growing demand by IT Executives for MaaS solutions
PHILADELPHIA, PA– July 18, 2014–Goliath Technologies, a leading provider of IT Operations Software for hybrid physical, virtual, and cloud environments, announced today that they have acquired TransformaTech. TransformaTech, a privately held company with offices in Exton, PA, provides monitoring as a service (MaaS) from the cloud for hosted and on-premise virtual and physical infrastructure.
“We have seen an increased demand for Monitoring as a Service, or MaaS as it is now called, especially from our customers who have deployed desktop virtualization solutions like XenApp, XenDesktop, and VMware View,” said Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO of Goliath Technologies. “The acquisition of TransformaTech will allow us to immediately offer MaaS to our customers because TransformaTech has the expertise, infrastructure, and business model in place to support customers such as the PA Department of Revenue, PMA Insurance, Cigna, Finish Line, Tire Kingdom, Fidelity, PayPal, and Amerigas.”
“We are very proud of our growth and profitability over the years. Identifying market trends early and reacting with technology solutions has always been a hallmark of our company and virtualization, cloud computing, and Monitoring as a Service were no exception,” said Bill Karounos, CEO of TransformaTech. “Now being part of Goliath Technologies, we will have additional resources and capabilities to realize our vision relative to offering MaaS to a larger base of customers.”
Bill Karounos will be transitioning to the Executive Team at Goliath Technologies as Vice President of Technical Operations. In this role, he will manage the entire customer experience from the first technical interaction through the purchase journey to ongoing support for both on-premise solutions and Monitoring as a Service in the cloud. All TransformaTech employees will join the Goliath Technologies team as well.
