VEENENDAAL, The Netherlands, May 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Omnext, a leading IT services company in Software Source Code Audits and Continuous Governance announced today that it has been named as a Cool Vendor in Services* by Gartner Inc., the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.
The program "Cool Vendors 2014" results in profiles for nearly 400 companies contained in some 90 reports - each dedicated to a research or topic area.
The program is focussed on relatively small companies and looks for innovation in technology and business practices. Cool Vendors provide an indication of the future use of technology. They encourage those in the driver's seat of IT to focus on where they are heading rather than constantly looking in the rear view mirror. Cool Vendors offer a competitive advantage, inspire organisations to think differently and challenge conventional processes.
In the last five years Omnext has established a track record in the practical application of source code quality assessment. Companies looking to achieve cost and risk reduction in application development and maintenance have used the results, based on industry standards, to assist both senior application managers and frontline technicians in achieving their objectives.
Jaco de Vries, Omnext CEO added: "We are extremely proud that Omnext has been included in the Cool Vendor report. It serves as a confirmation to us that auditing the current status of application software and using this in a highly flexible on-demand Continuous Governance cycle meets the needs of today's application development. Our thanks go out to the many users of Omnext® SaaS."
