Cireson, world leaders in Microsoft Cloud and System Center, today announced the acquisition of software solutions from Skylon Software, a Danish software company with industry-leading web experiences for Microsoft Configuration Manager. The acquisition marks Cireson’s continued commitment and investment to Microsoft System Center, expanding their solutions portfolio into the world’s leading Systems Management platform, Configuration Manager.

“Skylon Software and Cireson share the same passionate focus of helping the IT community become more productive,” says Cireson Co-Founder, Shaun Ericson. “We are excited to bring the Skylon Software products into the Cireson Portfolio to help our customers further leverage their System Center investments. In addition, Skylon Software Founder, Flemming Appelon Christiansen, will be joining the Cireson family. We’re looking forward to working together to deliver bleeding-edge solutions to over 125,000+ Configuration Manager customers worldwide. Cireson’s track record of Service Manager solutions that enhance the user experience, coupled with the recent release of Microsoft System Center 2016, make expanding our breadth of services into Configuration Manager the logical next step. This acquisition is the perfect catalyst to help us deliver immediate value to the IT community.”

Ericson continues, “In today’s mobile climate, our customers are increasingly facing the need to become more flexible in their daily jobs. Listening to community feedback, it became clear that our customers felt constrained by the lack of mobility and customization of the native Configuration Manager console. Skylon Software has a fantastic, industry-leading web console to help solve every-day mobility restrictions of Configuration Manager. Leveraging each other’s deep expertise and industry knowledge, we are finalizing development on the Cireson Portal for Configuration Manager, which will be available later this year.”

The Cireson Portal for Configuration Manager is a web-based experience that enables IT teams to easily perform daily tasks, deliver software packages, perform image deployments, and increase productivity by freeing them from the native Configuration Manager console and allowing them to work from anywhere, anytime. This new solution complements the existing Cireson Portal for Service Manager, which includes the Cireson Analyst Portal and Cireson Self-Service Portal.

Paul Sutton, Cireson Co-Founder, adds, “At Cireson, we’re always looking to the future for how we can enhance the user experience for our customers and meet the demands of the ever-changing technology landscape. With 2017 around the corner, a core focus at Cireson will be further expanding our Service Manager and Configuration Manager solutions. We are aggressively planning future Configuration Manager Portal development initiatives, including an updated UI experience and more exciting mobility enhancements, for early 2017.”

Skylon Software Founder, Flemming Appelon Christiansen, adds, “We are thrilled to join forces with Cireson to help Configuration Manager customers across the globe.”

The Cireson Portal for Configuration Manager will be widely available at the end of 2016. Sign-up for first priority access here and learn more in the Cireson Community.
