September 12, 2005

 

As part of our continuous goal to strengthen QoS Labs’ SOA offerings in the market, by integrating value-added solutions and outsourced managed services that benefit our customers, we are pleased to inform that on September the 12th, QoS Labs concluded its negotiations with Infovista to establish a strategic partnership, signing agreements to integrate InfoVista’s technology to QoS Labs’ SOA turnkey solutions.

 

 

InfoVista is a Service-Centric Performance Management Software Company that assures the optimal delivery of business-critical IT services.

Eighty percent of the world’s largest service providers as ranked by Fortune®, as well as leading Global 2000 enterprises, rely on InfoVista to enhance the business value of their technology assets. InfoVista stock is traded on the NASDAQ (IVTA).

 

Service providers and global enterprises are facing significant pressures and opportunities when it comes to optimizing the delivery of business-critical IT services. For service providers, the continued convergence around IP-based networks, enabling the delivery of a continuum of innovative services over a shared bandwidth, is setting new challenges for performance management. This convergence is driving the need for increased network efficiency, management of differentiated levels of quality of service ("QoS"), increased competitive fervor and the search for new revenue streams from new services.
