SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LogicMonitor®, the SaaS-based infrastructure monitoring platform for agile and complex IT environments, announced today that it has hired Service Provider industry veteran David Powell to lead the company’s newly formed Service Provider business unit. In conjunction with the hiring, LogicMonitor announced that its new Market Partner Program is aimed at expanding its solution to Service Provider companies globally.
With over 19 years of experience in the Service Provider industry, Powell comes to LogicMonitor from TekLinks, where he was Vice President of Managed and Cloud Services. At TekLinks, Powell was instrumental in the company’s implementation of LogicMonitor. In his new role as General Manager of Service Provider Business at LogicMonitor, Powell will focus on driving the strategy of the Market Partner Program, playing a critical role in expanding the business into Service Provider markets in North America, Europe, and Asia.
LogicMonitor’s platform is ideally suited for Service Providers looking for a multi-tenant automated solution to embed in their managed service or hosting services to monitor their continuously growing client base. In a recent 451 Research report on the future of the Service Provider market, analyst Carl Brooks found that “The state of the managed infrastructure and cloud market remains robust: it will grow more than 20% for the next several years...” LogicMonitor’s Market Partner Program will help its Service Provider partners meet the growing market demand for high-end managed services by providing the necessary tools to deliver first class monitoring at scale.
“It turns out that monitoring services that are designed for large-scale, complex enterprise environments, spanning on-premises and cloud deployments, are proving useful beyond the enterprise. MSPs, which are increasingly offering cloud-based services, as well as SaaS providers, can be well served by such tools,” said Nancy Gohring, senior analyst at 451 Research. “There is good potential for monitoring vendors, like LogicMonitor, to help Service Providers package, market, and benefit from offering performance tools to their customers.”
“LogicMonitor is poised for next-level growth with its rapidly expanding Service Provider base and I am thrilled to be able to lend my industry expertise to help make that transformation happen,” said David Powell, General Manager of Service Provider Business at LogicMonitor. “Helping TekLinks transform their business model was one of my professional highlights and I look forward to engaging the Service Provider community on behalf of LogicMonitor to help others transform their businesses.”
“We are thrilled to have David Powell, a proven leader in the Service Provider industry, on board to lead the emerging LogicMonitor Market Partner Program,” said Kevin McGibben, CEO of LogicMonitor. “As a long time Service Provider veteran, David has been immersed in our target market and will bring to LogicMonitor his in-depth knowledge, experience, and vision for LogicMonitor’s expedited success in the Service Provider industry.”
