Santa Clara, Calif., April 22, 2014—CliQr Technologies, the leader in cloud migration and full application lifecycle management, today announced it has been recognized as one of the “Cool Vendors in Cloud Management, 20141” for its CloudCenter™ technology by the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, Gartner, Inc.

“We’re honored to be recognized as a ‘Cool Vendor’ by Gartner. We believe this inclusion validates our application-centric approach to cloud migration and management—an approach that is already resonating with the market,” said Gaurav Manglik, co-founder and CEO of CliQr. “Businesses today have come to realize that the ultimate benefit of cloud computing involves the ability to fluidly move and manage applications and data to and across a variety of users, and private and public clouds depending on workload criteria. This is the true promise of the cloud—and to accomplish this in any scalable fashion organizations require the ability to liberate applications from being bound to diverse cloud infrastructures and services. And this is exactly what CliQr delivers.”
