Retzer, Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, has attained the Constellation SuperNova Award in Cloud Computing. The Constellation Supernova Award recognizes technology early adopters whom have successfully applied emerging and disruptive technologies within their organizations. These individuals and teams were subjected to a rigorous judging process before being selected from a pool of seventy applicants. The award winners were announced at Constellationâs Connected Enterprise Gala Dinner in Scottsdale, Arizona.
âWe are impressed by the level of passion and commitment by the award winners for not only applying disruptive technologies but also sharing in how theyâve created a climate for innovation and success,â stated R âRayâ Wang, Principal Analyst & CEO, Constellation Research, Inc.

Retzer said âI am truly honored to achieve the 2011 SuperNova status. Winning this inaugural award from the dynamic and forward-looking Constellation Research Group further validates the spirit of creativity and innovation we here at XSP embrace. Being recognized for excellence and passion in applying disruptive technologies â especially the Cloud â to our product and day-to-day operations clearly highlights what we have been working toward for over 15 years. From our XSPÂ® v5 Platform, with its core architecture designed around Cloud-based technologies, to our XSP GO!â¢ Mobile and eTRANÂ®+ products, XSP is not only talking and thinking about the Cloud â XSP is leading the way to the Cloud with its products and services. Tier 3, our partner in the Cloud, has been a tremendous asset in helping us map out our Cloud strategies by lending us their extensive expertise in the enterprise Cloud hosting space.â
