Typical pattern with small co's is they support their top few big companies and everyone else slides.
If they support their ISVs well and create an ecosystem around the product (while staying independent) they could become a major player.
Could work. Thumbs up for their success so far.
I am in the trenches and I promise you its real
I have been with Actifio for 15 months and have brought on multiple customers who are universally happy.
We just did a launch event in Sydney and five customers presented and did an open Q&A session with the audience including press and lots of potential clients. It was a great session with great feedback from open and honest customers who were not cherry picked for the panel.
Still don't take my word for it. Why not chat with the CIO of IAG NZ: https://twitter.com/kevinangland
His most recent tweet was sent just after the event where he said:
"Spent the day at @actifio APAC launch sharing our story about their product. Great product backed by some really great people."
He is a client who has bought three of our Copy Data Engines.
