TA Associates annonce une participation majoritaire dans Bomgar

TA Associates, une société internationale majeure de capitaux privés de croissance, a annoncé aujourd'hui qu'elle a investi dans Bomgar, un leader dans la fourniture de solutions d'assistance à distance aux entreprises. Les conditions supplémentaires de l'investissement n'ont pas été divulguées.

Les solutions logicielles de Bomgar offrent aux professionnels en support technologique un accès sécurisé à des systèmes informatiques et appareils distants et leur permettent de les contrôler en toute sécurité n'importe où dans le monde. Les produits de Bomgar sont utilisés pour soutenir un vaste éventail d'appareils — depuis des ordinateurs portables, serveurs, téléphones intelligents et tablettes à des systèmes de point de vente, appareils médicaux et kiosques — ainsi que pour mener des formations et présentations à distance et gérer l'accès des fournisseurs tiers. La société dessert un grand nombre de sociétés figurant au classement Fortune 500 et d'autres entreprises dans une multitude de secteurs, notamment l'éducation, les services financiers, les gouvernements, les soins de santé, les assurances, la vente au détail et les technologies. Fondée en 2003, Bomgar a été reconnue en tant que l'une des sociétés privées à la croissance la plus rapide en Amérique du Nord et elle compte aujourd'hui plus de 8 000 entreprises clientes dans 65 pays. Bomgar conservera son siège social à Jackson dans l'État du Mississippi, avec des bureaux à Atlanta, Washington D.C., Londres, Paris et Singapour.

« Avec sa croissance continue et de par sa position de leader dans le segment des entreprises de son marché, Bomgar représente un investissement très attractif pour TA Associates », a déclaré Ashutosh Agrawal, un Administrateur chez TA Associates qui siégera au Conseil d'administration de Bomgar. « Bomgar est réputée pour son développement axé sur la clientèle, la fonctionnalité intuitive de ses produits et son service de haute qualité et elle jouit d'une excellente image auprès de ses grandes entreprises clientes. Nous pensons que Bomgar répond aux besoins des organisations de support technologique de manière unique, à travers une sécurité, une intégration, une collaboration et des capacités de gestion réellement distinctives ».

« Pour nous, il ne fait aucun doute que la participation majoritaire de TA représentera un jalon significatif dans l'évolution de notre société et qu'elle permettra à Bomgar d'accéder à un niveau supérieur », a indiqué Joel Bomgar, Fondateur et Président du Conseil de Bomgar. « TA offre une expertise de valeur dans les investissements, particulièrement dans le secteur des technologies, ce qui permettra à Bomgar de se développer, à la fois localement et internationalement, et de s'étendre sur de nouveaux marchés. Nous souhaitons la bienvenue à TA au sein de notre Conseil et nous prévoyons une collaboration rapprochée tandis que nous continuons à offrir une valeur invariablement mesurable à nos clients et à les aider à fournir un support technologique de classe mondiale ».

Selon l'International Data Corporation (IDC), le marché de l'assistance à distance sans client que Bomgar dessert s'est développé à un taux de croissance annuel cumulé de 19 % depuis 2012.

« Beaucoup d'entreprises ont déterminé que les outils gratuits d'accès à distance et les produits de clavardage traditionnellement utilisés pour l'assistance technologique sont inadéquats ou incertains », a déclaré Hythem T. El-Nazer, un Administrateur chez TA Associates, qui siégera également au Conseil d'administration de Bomgar. « Par ailleurs, les grosses sociétés requièrent des plateformes qui prennent un charge un vaste éventail d'appareils, de systèmes d'exploitation et d'envergures pour desservir simultanément plusieurs milliers d'utilisateurs. Compte tenu des coûts élevés de l'assistance téléphonique et de la mobilisation continue de la main-d’œuvre utilisant des ordinateurs portables, tablettes et appareils mobiles d'entreprise et personnels, nous voyons des opportunités de croissance continue pour Bomgar ».

« Nous sommes ravis de nous associer à un investisseur expérimenté tel que TA Associates », a confié Matt Dircks, qui a été nommé Directeur général de Bomgar. « Nous voyons de nombreuses opportunités pour développer encore plus de valeur chez Bomgar, non seulement en accélérant la croissance organique dont la société a bénéficié depuis sa fondation, mais également en considérant les nouvelles opportunités formidables du marché. Le consumérisme des technologies de l'information allié à l'influx d'appareils composant l'Internet des objets créent ensemble une demande de nouvelles méthodes d'accès, d'assistance et de gestion des systèmes distants. Avec les directives de TA, nous bénéficieront d'une expérience et de ressources complémentaires afin de profiter pleinement de ces opportunités ».

Kirkland & Ellis LLP ont fourni des conseils juridiques à TA Associates. Goodwin Procter LLP a servi de conseiller juridique et Shea & Company, de conseiller financier pour Bomgar.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

The Internet of Things needs an entirely new security model, or does it? Can we save some old and tested controls for the latest emerging and different technology environments? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, will review hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal privacy options and a new risk balance you might not expect.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
