  • The HEAT Software group has spent several years and millions of dollars developing a very robust SaaS platform. We’re excited to bring many of our LANDESK technologies onto this cloud model.
  • Bringing the two companies together is a way for us to gain a lot more scale. For our customers and partners, this means more of everything, including:
    • More resources
    • More reach and investment

As we go through this transition, we will not lose our customer focus and our ability to reach out and provide you with a partnership that you can’t get from any other vendor.
