Snow Software-Embotics Named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms for Second Straight Year

Embotics, part of Snow Software, recognized for completeness of vision and ability to execute

Ottawa, ON and Stockholm – February 18, 2020 Embotics®, the hybrid cloud management company recently acquired by Snow Software, today announced that it has been recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms1 for the second year in a row.

“The cloud is being adopted faster than ever. However, the challenges around process transformation and workflow automation, as well as risks around cost management and governance have grown considerably as well,” said Jay Litkey, Founder of Embotics and SVP, Cloud Management at Snow. “Our team has focused on delivering a product that is a fully integrated platform with a comprehensive suite of services to assist organizations with their cloud transformation. Speed of delivery, predictable cloud budgets and risk mitigation can be obstacles for even the largest organizations, and we have helped our customers not only visualize the challenges in their environments but to actually tackle them in real-time. When it comes to cloud, it is not enough to see a problem; you must be able to immediately act or even automate the solution. This is how you can truly accelerate service delivery, contain costs and mitigate security concerns.”

This news comes on the heels of Snow’s acquisition of Embotics in December 2019. With the integration of Embotics and Snow, IT leaders are able to better understand, manage and optimize their entire technology ecosystems from cloud instances and SaaS applications to software and devices. Embotics provides cloud provisioning, automation, orchestration and governance capabilities, supporting both cloud brokered self-service consumption and cloud direct consumption for DevOps teams, leveraging native cloud resources and APIs. 

“Cloud has become an integral part of the overall IT ecosystem and created new requirements for how organizations manage and drive the most value from their IT investments,” said Sanjay Castelino, Chief Product Officer at Snow. “The acquisition of Embotics by Snow brings together two leaders to provide another layer of visibility and intelligence across the entire ecosystem, empowering organizations to overcome the complexities and maximize the potential of hybrid environments.”
