Company DescriptionABOUT EDGEWORX SOLUTIONS INC.

Edgeworx Solutions Inc, is a Markham based Systems Integrator focused entirely on 4 key areas:

• Visibility ​into Enterprise IT Investments
• Network​Performance Optimization
• Application​Performance Optimization
• Security ​Performance Optimization
Our value proposition is based on the premise that “you cannot manage what you cannot see”. Most Enterprises have very narrow and selective visibility tools. Examples of these would be network, server and storage monitoring tools. These specialized tools provide a narrow or “silo” view of performance. Invariably, network admins point to the application group. The server admins blame the bottlenecks on the network and nobody is the wiser. This is where Edgeworx comes in. Edgeworx has Visibility tools that cross these organizational boundaries and provide an Enterprise Global view.
Visibility allows Edgeworx to pinpoint performance bottlenecks regardless of the silo or silo boundaries they reside in. This can be everything from network latency halfway around the world or a line of code in an application, web or DB server. Network and Performance Optimization techniques remedy these bottlenecks and drive the return of your IT investments to their maximum. Gone are the days of throwing hardware at a problem to make performance issues go away.
