Customer Demand for a Cloud-Native Data Analytics Platform Increases in the Region; Sumo Logic Signs New Distribution Agreement With Distribution Central
REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Dec 16, 2015 -- Sumo Logic, a leading cloud-native data analytics service, today announced it has seen significant momentum in the Asia Pacific region and has added a number of new customers including Australia Post, carsales.com Limited, Rewardle, Tyro Payments, Viocorp, Webjet, Whispir and more. These customers are realizing the business value that cloud-native data analytics across an organization's entire infrastructure and application stack can provide. Sumo Logic's real-time operational, business and customer insights enable customers to gain a service-model advantage to accelerate their shift to continuous innovation, increasing competitive advantage, business value and growth.
"Our organization was in the midst of transitioning from a traditional data center to the cloud. We knew we needed a log management solution that would allow us to avoid managing any additional infrastructure or software, and that meant going with a pure SaaS offering," said Michael Ridgway, director of engineering for Ryvuss at carsales.com. "With Sumo Logic we've just scratched the surface. Our entire development team now has real-time access to our log applications and can see trending metrics over time. As a result, we can now put the power in the hands of the people who can actually fix the problem. Our average response times have decreased from hours to minutes and we can detect and resolve issues before they have potential to impact our customers."
