Cloud-based Solution Gives Businesses a Simple, Integrated Solution for Office Sending

DRJ LogoSTAMFORD, Conn. – Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI), a global technology company that provides innovative products and solutions to power commerce, today announced that its SendPro online shipping and mailing solution now prints United States Postal Service (USPS) postage for mailing, making it an all-in-one solution for shipping and mailing. The SendPro online shipping and mailing solution is the only online application on the market that provides both USPS postage for mailing and multiple shipping options.


“Integrating mailing as part of the SendPro solution is the latest innovation in our revolutionary SendPro family of office shipping, mailing and payment solutions, which helps thousands of businesses simplify their sending processes”

The SendPro online shipping and mailing solution allows users to mail, overnight and ship parcels from their computer, tablet or mobile device via the USPS, UPS® or another major carrier. With the cloud-based SendPro online shipping and mailing solution, businesses of all sizes can compare their shipping options, accurately weigh packages, and print postage and labels, all from one easy-to-use online application. It also provides access to special discounts with USPS® and UPS®, including a $0.03 discount on every first-class letter sent after the USPS 2017 rate change takes effect on January 22.

“Integrating mailing as part of the SendPro solution is the latest innovation in our revolutionary SendPro family of office shipping, mailing and payment solutions, which helps thousands of businesses simplify their sending processes,” said Mark Shearer, Executive Vice President and President, Pitney Bowes Global SMB Solutions. “By adding mailing into the SendPro application, we not only simplify the sending process, but also make it possible for businesses to handle all of their sending needs, whether mail, flats, or packages from a single device more efficiently and effectively. Our SendPro online shipping and mailing solution is the only one of its kind, as it gives our clients the flexibility to manage their mailing needs while also being able to choose among multiple carriers for their shipping needs.

“According to the recently published Pitney Bowes Parcel Shipping Index, parcel volume is expected to grow by 20 percent between now and 2018. With that growth comes increasing complexity across multiple carriers with different rate structures, service levels, and tracking and billing processes. Factor in the other key component of office sending -- transactional and letter mail -- and the opportunity for businesses to save time and money with one platform for all their office sending is great. That’s what SendPro is designed to do – simplify office sending on one platform while enabling businesses to access the best carrier options and discounts available.”

From addressing and printing postage to comparing shipping options, package tracking and consolidated reporting, the SendPro online shipping and mailing solution allows users to manage mail and multi-carrier shipping online and gain access to discounts. It gives businesses the information they need to select the best carrier option for each item based on service level and price. The SendPro online shipping and mailing solution brings the same technology used by large shipping companies and online retailers to small and medium businesses in an easy-to-use, cost-effective, online solution.

The SendPro online shipping and mailing solution is an integral part of the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud, a commerce enabler, providing access to solutions, analytics and APIs across the full commerce continuum with speed and agility to help clients identify customers, locate opportunities, enable communications, power shipping from anywhere to everywhere, and manage payments. The SendPro online shipping and mailing solution is also available through the Windows Store and is featured on the Windows 10 platform.

In addition to the cloud-based SendPro online shipping and mailing solution, Pitney Bowes offers the SendPro 300 and SendPro P Series mailing and shipping solutions, which combine the latest in mailing equipment with the groundbreaking multi-carrier office shipping capabilities and inbound package receiving capabilities of SendPro. The SendPro 300 smart sending device, which was unveiled in October 2016, is designed specifically for the small and medium business marketplace and provides an all-in-one solution that streamlines multi-carrier office shipping and mailing.

For larger organizations with higher volumes, the SendPro P Series integrates hardware and software in a single product that drives efficiency and delivers accountability and tracking in the mailroom. SendPro Desktop and Networked SendPro Kits round out the current portfolio of SendPro products. With scales, label printers and the SendPro software, each SendPro Kit delivers sending simplicity to any small office or desktop.

Another key benefit for SendPro users is the ability to mail now and pay later with Pitney Bowes’ flexible payment options for USPS postage. These flexible postage payment options help businesses of all sizes enhance their sending operations, better manage cash flow, and streamline their postal accounting.

As Enterprises Accelerate Their Digital Transformation, Veeam is taking market share from legacy vendors and shows exponentially growing revenue as a result of its innovative approach to delivering 24.7.365 availability for today’s Hybrid Cloud world

DRJ LogoBAAR, Switzerland – Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced record results for Q4 2016 and FY 2016: 28 percent YoY growth and $607.4M in total revenue bookings, fueled by accelerated enterprise and cloud revenues which were driven by the critical need for enterprises of all sizes to ensure they are available 24.7.365 in the Hybrid Cloud world.


Veeam Announces Record 2016 Results: 28% YoY Growth and $607M in Total Revenue Bookings

“2016 was a fantastic year for Veeam across the board, driven by users’ insatiable appetite for anytime, anywhere access to data, applications and workloads,” said Peter McKay, Veeam’s President and COO. “As organizations work to digitally transform every aspect of their business, CIOs are quickly coming to realize that these IT investments won’t be worth much if they can’t guarantee that they will be ’Always-On’. We’ve seen incredible growth in demand for the Veeam Availability Suite from all sectors of the market, but especially from the Fortune 500 and Global 2000.”

Additional highlights from Veeam’s 2016 results include:

  • Enterprise growth and momentum: At the end of 2016, Veeam counted 73 percent of the Fortune 500 and 56 percent of the Global 2000 as customers. Enterprise new license bookings grew 57 percent annually, while the number of new enterprise customers grew 48.6 percent to 761 over the same period.
  • 230,000 customers worldwide: Veeam added close to 50,000 total paid customers in 2016, keeping pace with the historical average of approximately 4,000 new customers every month.
  • 13.3 million virtual machines (VMs) are protected with Veeam Availability solutions, including more than 1 million VMs under VCSP management.
  • Expansion to 45,000 ProPartners worldwide: Veeam’s 100 percent commitment to the channel continues to attract new resellers and VARs to availability solutions.
  • DRaaS and BaaS: The Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) program, which provides service providers with ready-made opportunities to offer Disaster Recover as a Service (DRaaS) and Backup as a Service (BaaS) and to acquire new customers and grow recurring revenue, reported 79 percent YoY revenue growth for FY 2016. The VCSP program has expanded to more than 14,300 service and cloud providers worldwide, with more than 2,600 of those partners licensed to provide services for Veeam Cloud Connect.

“Thanks to Veeam backup and Veeam Cloud Connect with OffsiteDataSync, we are seeing an 80 percent reduction in operational load,” said Jason Weinstein, Vice President, data center operations at Premise Health, the leading worksite health and patient engagement company in the United States. “By avoiding the backup to tape to backup to disk scenario, our teams now are spending 1/8 of their time on backup. This allows us to focus on other initiatives while saving the equivalent of two full-time employees.”

2016 was an outstanding year for Veeam on many fronts:

  • Veeam announced the next generation of Availability, Veeam Availability Platform for Hybrid Cloud, which provides businesses and enterprises of all sizes with the means to guarantee Availability for the Hybrid Cloud with virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads.
  • Veeam released Veeam Availability Suite 9.5, with more than 175 new features specifically designed to deliver enhanced agility and flexibility by ensuring 24.7.365 availability of all workloads and applications no matter where they may reside – on-premises or in the cloud.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, launched at the end of November 2016, generated almost 6,000 downloads in just over one month. Of this adoption, close to one-fourth came from Commercial and Enterprises businesses.
  • Veeam Endpoint Backup™ FREE 1.5, the latest version of the simple solution for backing up Windows-based desktops and laptops, was released March 2016. Since launch, there have been close to 350,000 downloads of the free product. Veeam Agent for Linux v1, launched in mid-December, generated 6,400 downloads in the first month of availability. The release of the new Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, built on technology introduced in Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, is planned for Q1 2017 and includes many top-requested features.
  • The company secured the ‘Leaders’ position in Gartner’s June 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software, and ranked as the top provider for Cloud era availability and protection technology in the Ovum Decision Matrix: Data Availability and Protection Solution for the Cloud Era, 2016-17.
  • Veeam joined the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Complete program. The program adds Veeam solutions to HPE’s price list so that customers can purchase complete HPE and Veeam solutions directly from HPE and its resellers.
  • Registration opened for VeeamON 2017, the world’s Premier Hybrid Cloud Availability Event, which will take place May 16 – 18, 2017 in New Orleans, LA. Keynote speakers will include Mark Russinovich, Chief Technology Officer for Microsoft Azure, and Sanjay Poonen, COO, Customer Operations, VMware.
  • Veeam also expanded and strengthened its executive team as the company continues its journey to becoming a $1B company, notably adding Peter McKay as its President and Chief Operating Officer and promoting William Largent, previously Executive Vice President, as its new Chief Executive Officer.

“Veeam Availability Platform is a game changer,” said Sachin Jain, CIO (Global Brand Operations) & CISO, Evalueserve, “by reshaping businesses across verticals, providing ease of recovery and higher availability across different platforms, and being a single point of recovery for organizations.”

“The simplicity and power of Veeam solutions are the driving force behind SingleHop’s substantial growth in cloud-based business continuity services,” said Jordan Jacobs, Vice President of Products at SingleHop, a leading provider of on-demand infrastructure and managed cloud services and a platinum VCSP partner. “With the introduction of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5, which SingleHop integrated on the day of Veeam’s release, we don’t expect this momentum to slow anytime soon. Our Virtual Private Cloud customers couldn’t be happier with the unrivaled flexibility and control provided through features like the self-service backup and restore portal.”

DRJ LogoPALO ALTO, Calif. – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE)

  • Advances HPE's strategy in the fast-growing, high-margin hyperconverged market
  • Makes possible the most complete, "built-for-enterprise" hyperconverged infrastructure offering for customers
  • HPE to pay $650 million in cash

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced a definitive agreement to acquire SimpliVity, a leading provider of software-defined, hyperconverged infrastructure, for $650 million in cash. The hyperconverged market was estimated to be approximately $2.4 billion in 2016, and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 25 percent, to nearly $6 billion, by 2020. By bringing together HPE's best-in-class infrastructure, automation and cloud management software with SimpliVity's industry-leading software-defined data management platform, HPE and its partner ecosystem will deliver the industry's only "built-for-enterprise" hyperconverged offering. 

"This transaction expands HPE's software-defined capability and fits squarely within our strategy to make Hybrid IT simple for customers," said Meg Whitman, President and CEO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "More and more customers are looking for solutions that bring them secure, highly resilient, on-premises infrastructure at cloud economics. That's exactly where we're focused."

SimpliVity: A Leader in Hyperconverged Infrastructure
Many enterprises have legacy IT environments that are not well suited for today's cloud-based services and on-demand applications. Modern data management platforms need simple, user-friendly interfaces that give developers the tools they need to easily develop, scale and protect data. A hyperconverged system integrates compute, storage and networking into a pre-configured system, managed by a user-friendly software platform that doesn't require extensive IT staff for set up and management.

SimpliVity, which is privately held, was founded in 2009 and is headquartered in Westborough, MA. The company's software-defined, hyperconverged infrastructure is designed from the ground up to meet the needs of enterprise customers who require on-premises technology infrastructure with enterprise-class performance, data protection, and resiliency, at cloud economics. 

The combined HPE and SimpliVity portfolio will offer a rich set of enterprise data services across hyperconverged, 3PAR storage, composable infrastructure and multi-cloud offerings. Adding SimpliVity's innovative technology to HPE's hyperconverged portfolio provides significant additional benefits to customers, including:

  • Built-in enterprise data protection and resiliency that simplifies backup and enables customers to more quickly restore operations. 
  • Enterprise storage utilization and virtual machine (VM) efficiency that helps customers control cost and performance. 
  • Always-on compression and de-duplication that guarantees 90 percent capacity savings across storage and backup. 
  • Policy-based VM-centric management that simplifies operations and enables data mobility, making development teams and end-users more productive.

"Over the past 8 years we've been on an incredible journey and joining HPE is the logical next step for SimpliVity," said Doron Kempel, Chairman and CEO, SimpliVity. "HPE's broad sales reach, extensive partner channel, complementary technology and commitment to innovation will accelerate SimpliVity's journey and significantly strengthen our ability to deliver the best-in-class hybrid IT solutions our customers are looking for."

A Strong Combined Roadmap
Software-defined infrastructure is at the heart of HPE's Hybrid IT strategy and this move accelerates the company's ability to deliver a modern, multi-cloud, multi-IaaS platform, powered by automation software and composable infrastructure. 

For current HPE customers and partners, the company will continue to offer its existing hyperconverged products, the HC 380 and the HC 250. For SimpliVity customers and partners, there will be no immediate change in the product roadmap and HPE will continue to support existing SimpliVity customers and platforms. 

Within 60 days of closing the transaction, HPE intends to offer the SimpliVity Omni Stack software qualified for its ProLiant DL380 servers. In the second half of 2017, the company will offer a range of integrated HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged systems based on HPE ProLiant Servers. 

Looking forward, HPE customers can expect to see their hyperconverged experience continue to improve with new innovations like "workspace" controls, which provide business leaders and developers with simple self-service portals to compose virtualized and containerized resources, and accelerate application development and deployment. Additionally, HPE will provide enhanced business insight, including predictive analytics, which will give IT managers the tools they need to increase resource utilization and proactively respond to needs for new resources.

Impact to Financial Performance
HPE and SimpliVity believe that by bringing together their complementary product portfolios and leveraging HPE's expansive go-to-market capability, partner ecosystem, and consumption model offerings, they will be able to significantly accelerate the financial performance of the combined business. 

HPE expects the acquisition to be accretive to earnings in the first full fiscal year following close. 

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of HPE's fiscal year 2017, subject to regulatory review and approval, as well as other customary closing conditions and adjustments.

First U.S.-based company to achieve certification of data center cooling systems


DRJ LogoCOLUMBUS, Ohio – Vertiv™, formerly Emerson Network Power, announced their Liebert® cooling products have earned the trusted AHRI Certified® mark through the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI) Datacom certification program, an assurance to customers of the products’ efficiency and capacity performance.

Vertiv is the first U.S.-based company to achieve this certification for data center cooling systems. AHRI is an independent organization that certifies the performance of products in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and water heating industry (HVACR). The AHRI certification programs comply with ISO Guide 65 and technical standards, based on sound engineering practices, to rate HVACR equipment efficiency and capacity.

Vertiv participation in AHRI’s globally-recognized certification program provides assurance to customers that Liebert cooling products included in the AHRI program will perform accurately and consistently as documented. Until now customers had to rely on the accuracy of published data without the benefit of highly respected third party validation.

“Vertiv is pleased our Liebert cooling products are now AHRI certified,” said John Peter (JP) Valiulis, vice president of North America thermal management marketing, Vertiv. “AHRI certification enables data center customers to accurately compare the capacity and efficiency of cooling systems that have been evaluated using rigorous performance testing standards. It also validates the Liebert Rating System, a tool developed by Vertiv engineers to validate cooling system performance metrics that we submit to AHRI for certification.”

“We are happy to have Vertiv as part of the AHRI certification program for Datacom cooling equipment,” said Bill Tritsis, vice president, certification for AHRI. “Companies that choose to have their products certified demonstrate an admirable commitment to their customers. And by specifying equipment from manufacturers that participate in AHRI’s performance certification programs, customers can be assured that installed equipment will perform as claimed.”


Details by model of the AHRI Certified products, as well as performance certificates, can be found at the AHRI website, www.ahridirectory.org.

Connecting tool provides expanded blueprint for continuous improvement

DRJ LogoROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. — A new tool connecting the COBIT® 5 framework and CMMI® capability improvement models provides business IT practitioners guidance on how to deliver additional value to stakeholders by strengthening process designs. The COBIT 5/CMMI Practices Pathway Tool can be leveraged to utilize organizational resources more effectively, measure performance more accurately and lower costs through stronger governance.

COBIT 5 is the leading framework for the governance and management of enterprise IT. The framework links business and IT goals while helping users become more thorough in addressing risk management.

Organizations that use CMMI maturity models are able to identify the key capabilities that drive meaningful results by building continuous improvement into everyday processes. CMMI provides a roadmap for developing, improving and sustaining business performance.

The tool is bi-directional, allowing practitioners to connect individual practices or sets of practices from either COBIT 5 or CMMI and harmonize them with relevant practices from the other. The content can be searched by domain, process area or practice. While COBIT was developed with IT in mind, the tool allows COBIT concepts and practices to be easily applied to a service organization.

ISACA acquired CMMI Institute in 2016 in anticipation of joining forces to help organizations optimize their technology, deliver greater value to stakeholders and improve business performance.

“Many practitioners are familiar with COBIT 5 or CMMI but not the other. The COBIT 5/CMMI Practices Pathway Tool provides a unique approach to connecting the two,” said Frank Schettini, ISACA’s chief innovation officer. “This tool allows practitioners using COBIT 5 and CMMI capability improvement models to implement guidance from the other in order to better execute the processes, policies and governance needed to deliver organizational excellence.”

“The tool provides a blueprint that can be tailored to each unique organization’s needs – from low-level processes up through high level governance requirements and enabling strategic vision for each enterprise,” said CMMI Institute CEO Kirk Botula. “The result is better understanding of the maturity of the work they do in product and software development and services, recognizing that maturity can be a cornerstone of effective governance performance measurement.”

The tool – delivered in a Microsoft Excel format – comes with a supplementary guide explaining how it can be best put to use. According to the guide, “the most relevant connection points between the CMMI and COBIT 5 models are practices. While there are absolutely synergies at higher levels, each individual practice is potentially an area where practitioners can derive benefit from harmonization of COBIT 5 and CMMI.”

The tool is available for download at www.isaca.org/cobit-cmmi-pathway.
