Austin, Texas – October 18, 2011 – ScienceLogic™ Inc., a provider of IT operations and cloud management software, has opened an office in Austin, Texas. At 6,000 square feet, the office will serve as the company’s marketing and sales hub. This is ScienceLogic’s first office in the U.S. outside of its Reston, Va., headquarters.
“Austin has a wealth of talent and expertise in network, systems, and application management software that makes it an ideal location for ScienceLogic to expand into, especially with the pro-business climate in Texas,” said David Link, ScienceLogic CEO. “We’ve made a significant investment in personnel over the last year and a half to drive growth, and many of those new hires are based in Austin, including our marketing and sales leadership. We will continue to seek top local talent to fill new roles within the business.”
ScienceLogic announced in June that it had hired Austin-based management software veterans Steve Harriman as senior vice president of marketing and Scott Sherwood as senior vice president of sales. Both executives were instrumental in the growth of Austin-based network performance management company NetQoS, which was acquired by CA Technologies in September 2009. The majority of the company’s marketing team, as well as its inside sales team, is based in Austin. In addition, Chris Cordray, ScienceLogic co-founder and chief scientist, and Fred Johannessen, executive vice president of business development for ScienceLogic and former BMC Software executive, are based in Austin.
ScienceLogic had a compound annual growth rate of more than 70 percent from its inception in 2003 to 2010 with no cash from outside investors. New Enterprise Associates (NEA) invested $15 million in ScienceLogic in April 2010, based on the company’s potential as a cloud management platform provider. During the first half of 2011, sales orders grew 41 percent year over year. This is the result of more enterprises, service providers, and federal organizations relying on the ScienceLogic platform to manage any combination of data center and cloud resources as one entity, which is paramount to successfully delivering IT services.
