Q2 Longitude revenue increased 104% over the same quarter last year, and revenue for the first half of 2008 was up 49% over the first half of 2007.
Longitude customer acquisition for the first half increased 26% over last year, with wins in âgreenâ sectors such as solar energy and resource management consulting, as well as in more traditional sectors of healthcare, financial services, publishing, education, technology, law enforcement, state government, manufacturing, transportation, and IT services. The companyâs new Longitude Professional Edition, launched in January, showed immediate and consistent traction with small to medium size businesses, while the established flagship Longitude Enterprise Edition continued making inroads in larger organizations.
âBy offering Longitude packages at prices accessible to every budget, weâve demonstrated that any size or type of business can afford a feature-rich, commercially supported application monitoring package,â said Heroix President Rick Lane. âOrganizations with limited resources no longer have to make do with patchwork monitoring or rely on costly, reactive firefighting in guaranteeing IT service levels. Longitude is affordable, installs immediately, and provides best practices proactive monitoring within minutes.â Customer Bret Moeller, CIO at Bunker Hill Community College (http://www.heroix.com/customers/case_study_bunker_hill.htm) in Charlestown, Massachusetts, concurred. âThere are a few other systems that provide similar capabilities but they are all very expensive. Longitude, on the other hand, is priced at a level that fits our tight budget.â
