Aggressive plans for driving growth and leadership in Europe and the Americas, industry partnerships and launches of new on-demand solutions for IT automation, end user mobile-device management and remote support throughout 2010 are key goals anticipated under his leadership.

In this rapidly accelerating market for IT management SaaS, we are now leveraging NTRglobal's extensible platform for remote support to bring proven enterprise capabilities, high scalability and global infrastructure to a new breed of on-demand-uniquely ubiquitous-IT service desk apps for giving support from iPhones, among other platforms such as BlackBerry, Symbian and Android, said Gilles Samoun, CEO of NTRglobal. By delivering more than a hundred million on-demand IT automation and remote support sessions last year alone, NTRglobal enterprise and government customers are reducing IT service desk costs by hundreds of thousands of dollars. With our tier-one integration plans, NTRglobal will deliver IT Services SaaS that speed even greater cost reductions while enhancing productivity with proactive support.

NTRglobal On-Demand Support-as-a-Service Platform

NTRglobal's support-as-a-service technologies allow IT professionals to securely reach the remote workforce, sales, mobile Webworkers and unattended computing devices to automate routine maintenance and IT tasks. With flagship solution, NTRsupport, an IT or service desk agent can be always on the desktop, instantly available with the click of the mouse to troubleshoot issues in real time via instant chat or screensharing and remote control on remote servers, desktops and mobile devices, thus increasing uptime for both IT and the remote office worker. Now with NTRglobal solutions, IT professionals have the capability to securely manage thousands of Web-connected computing devices at the touch of an iPhone while delivering tens of millions of time-saving remote-support sessions, added Samoun. As a key member of EuroCloud with one of the largest networks for delivering SaaS, NTRglobal offers reliable connectivity and performance to our customer base of enterprise customers.

Gartner's IT Key Metrics Data shows that the ratio of end user devices to support technician has been getting progressively smaller over the last five years, meaning desktop support technicians can't support as many devices as they used to, said Terrence Cosgrove, Sr. Research Analyst at Gartner. This is sort of counterintuitive; one would assume that over time, organizations would in general become more efficient, but the opposite is true. The increase of user mobility and device heterogeneity is playing a major role in this situation.
