What it offers: Jamcracker Platform, cloud services delivery and life-cycle management
How it works: Using the Jamcracker Platform, enterprise IT can integrate user provisioning, administration and single sign-on functions. Once
that's completed, IT can provide users a catalog of services and then centrally and consistently manage provisioning, access, administration, security,
audit and chargeback, the company says.
Why it's worth watching: As enterprises pick a cloud services provider over here and another over there, and build up a private cloud or two, IT
organizations face the challenge of "managing all this stuff," says Jeff Kaplan, managing director of ThinkStrategies. Increasingly, they'd like that
management from a single dashboard, he adds. A variety of third parties, Jamcracker among them, has risen to the challenge of providing a central
point of control for cloud services.
