Accelatis Receives Financial Support from State of Connecticut

Accelatis, an innovator in Application Performance Management [APM] software, today announced that the company has received $350,000 in new funding from the State of Connecticut’s Small Business Express (EXP) program.

Accelatis provides software that monitors, manages, and optimizes the performance of complex information systems and quickly resolves application performance issues. A combination of grants and loans, the money will be used for development and marketing of the company’s Ascension Suite of APM products for Oracle Hyperion, IBM Cognos, and other enterprise software platforms.

Managed by the state’s Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), the EXP program provides loans and grants to Connecticut’s small businesses to spur job creation and growth. Assistance focuses on access to capital, through a revolving loan fund, and incentive loans, matching loans, and grants to create jobs.

“As an information technology company, Accelatis represents the sort of high-value, high-growth business that will help Connecticut lead the region’s economic recovery,” said DECD Commissioner Catherine Smith. “Our Small Business Express program has been very successful in encouraging companies like Accelatis to locate and grow here. We look forward to watching the company’s success.”

The EXP support comes in the form of a matching grant and a loan. Proceeds are being used to fund the addition of four jobs in Accelatis’ Connecticut office, in product development, marketing and sales, as well as building-out of the company’s information technology resources required for these new jobs, said President/CEO Jonathan Berry.

“The impact of poorly performing enterprise applications is significant, and can range from user inconvenience to statutory reporting problems,” said Berry. “Companies rely upon Accelatis to help improve system performance and reliability for complicated environments. The support is already helping us to add staff, enhance our product capabilities, and bring our message to the market.”

The time and resources required to manage enterprise applications are immense, and represent a task that is impossible to accomplish without automated tools. Ascension Suite gives customers more insight and better performance while avoiding the all too common frustrations of excessive guesswork, system downtime, and user complaints.

Accelatis’ customer list reads like a who’s-who of global businesses, and includes such companies as Kraft, General Electric, Stanley Black & Decker, Emerson, and Anglo American.

“Obtaining this support from the Small Business Express program is a feather in our cap,” added Berry. “It validates what we are doing, as well as confirming the importance of information technology to the vitality of the regional economy.” Berry anticipates that the support “will help the company to more than double our revenues within one year.”

Small businesses with operations in Connecticut and employing not more than 100 employees are eligible to apply for EXP support. Priority for available funding is given to companies that (1) are creating new jobs and (2) are within Connecticut’s economic base industries, such as precision manufacturing, business services, green and sustainable technology, bioscience, and information technology.

The Department of Economic and Community Development is the state's lead agency responsible for strengthening Connecticut’s competitive position in the new high-tech, knowledge-based global economy. The agency takes a comprehensive approach to economic development that incorporates housing and community development, as well as culture and tourism.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
