CloudJumper, a Garner-based startup that’s just over a year old, already is drawing praise from global research firm Gartner as a “Cool Vendor” in its technology space.

The company offers a variety of IT services and was recognized by Gartner in its Cool Vendors in Unified Workspaces for 2017.

“Vendors in the unified workspaces market can help organizations provision applications and data across multiple devices in a user-centric manner,” Gartner says. “I&O leaders responsible for mobile and endpoint strategies should identify innovative products that will help realize their unified workspaces vision.”

CloudJumper’s Unified Workspace or Workspace as a Service (WaaS) platform is known as nWorkSpace.

“The traditional desktop environment that organizations are deploying to users is old and tired. It prevents organizations from being agile, and limits the creativity and innovation of users. In the digital workplace, users need to be able to consume IT-provided applications from different sources, on whatever device they choose,” Gartner says.

“They need to have the ability to innovate using devices and applications that the organization’s IT department has not done a full analysis and regression test on, yet IT must ensure that new ways of working won’t prevent the legacy and well-tested applications they use from being deployed. In our inquiries with clients, organizations are asking how to solve this problem. Unified workspaces allow the mix of IT-provided and user selected technologies to coexist in peace, harmony and productivity.”

CloudJumper launched last year as a spinoff from nGenx, which is based in Overland Park, Kansas.

CloudJumper is proud to be named as one of Gartner’s ‘Cool Vendors’ for 2017,” said Max Pruger, chief sales officer for CloudJumper. “We believe this acknowledgment recognizes our dedication to IT service provider-focused WaaS solutions and reinforces our vision of cloud-based workspaces for organizations across every sector. With the upward trajectory of unified workspaces and our industry-proven platform, we look forward to building upon this achievement in 2018 and beyond.”

CloudJumper is led by Albert Cinelli, who is chair of the board and the founder of nGenx, and President John Helms, who was CEO of nGenx before taking over CloudJumper as the spinoff took place.

Other firms recognized in the report, which is the first from Gartner in this IT area, include:
