An innovator: a person (or business) who introduces new methods, ideas, or products. We’re very excited to be named as one of the five 2016 IDC Innovators, a recognition given to vendors with groundbreaking business models and/or innovative new technologies. Both of those requirements happen to fall smack dab in the middle of things we are passionate about.
International Data Corporation (IDC) just published its 2016 IDC Innovators report that profiles Acumatica and four other pioneers in cloud services. “The IDC Innovators in this report are all attacking the challenge around enabling cloud services,” said Robert Mahowald, IDC Group Vice President, in a press release. “Launching and managing cloud-based services can involve complex technical and business challenges.”
It’s an honor for us to stand out from the crowd—and we owe it to our strong partnerships. Acumatica has been investing in rapid innovation by forming key business relationships with companies and people who share our views on the importance of delivering services that both save and make money for our clients. We’re talking about our incredible ecosystem of partners who work with us in delivering cutting-edge capabilities anytime, anywhere. We couldn’t be more proud of our global partner team of experienced value-added resellers (VARs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) that share our Cloud solutions and develop applications for key verticals. We have also joined up with Microsoft and Amazon to drive key technical offerings because our clients deserve the best. And by best, we mean flexible and tailored to their specific businesses.
The IDC report, “IDC Innovators: Cloud Services Enablement, 2016—Five Paths to Accelerating Cloud-Based Service Launches and Management” by Robert P. Mahowald and Jeffrey Silverstein, consists of ten pages of advice for buyers who want to learn more about SaaS and Cloud software.
With the increasing change of pace in today’s technology landscape, it takes a lot to keep on top of the sometimes daily transformations in the information. From business intelligence to collaboration tools, from bots to the IoT (the internet of things), technology is a wide, wonderful world of the new. And we love every minute of it.
“This industry does not respect tradition, only innovation,” says Satya Nadella, CEO at Microsoft. He’s right! We are always strategizing ways not merely to keep pace with the rapid changes in the tech landscape but to be innovators in helping sculpt it. We never stop thinking creatively about how Acumatica products and services can be made to work just right for you.
Just a couple examples of how saving time equals saving money: Why don’t you build your solution faster with the right application framework to maximize efficiency or setup recurring billing using projects?

As one of the IDC Innovators, we are proud to offer a platform that enables our vertical industry partners to build modern, cloud-based solutions and get to market faster. One size doesn’t fit all in Cloud strategies, because every single small and medium business or independent software vendor is unique. We strive to deliver analytic applications that really serve the technology buyer who is looking for personalized solutions.
It’s a pleasure and a privilege to do what we do. Thanks, IDC, for naming us a 2016 Innovator!
