Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendor” Report are innovative, impactful, and intriguing.

Toronto, ON – 4 April, 2006 – Platform Computing, the global leader in grid computing, today announced that it has been included in a list of "Cool Vendors" in the "Cool Vendors in IT Operations Management, 2006", by Donna Scott, Cameron Haight, Milind Govekar, Gartner, Inc., March 9, 2006.

Companies in the 2006 Cool Vendors report were selected as suppliers of intriguing technology in management software focused on root cause analysis and real-time infrastructure. According to the authors of the paper, "Available funding, new technology platforms and increasing complexity, combined with a lack of perceived value with many current management tool investments, continue to act as key drivers for new entrants into the IT operations management software market."

"Companies are under significant pressure to make the most of their IT resources in order to support the strategic objectives of the business. With our unique technology, such as Platform Enterprise Grid Orchestrator (EGO), IT managers can drive increased IT agility through virtualisation of their data centre resources, thus harnessing all of their computing power in the most efficient way," said Songnian Zhou, CEO, Chairman and co-founder of Platform Computing. "We believe Gartner’s highlight of our pioneering work in enterprise grid speaks volumes about our success to date, and extraordinary potential."
