American management system (AMS) makers are ramping up production and ramping back up for the holidays, with new product launches expected to begin this week.
But as companies continue to get ready for the holiday season, many of the most critical software needs have already been fulfilled.
The next big product launch is expected to come in the coming weeks, with an announcement expected on Thursday, a source familiar with the matter told Business Insider.
The first product to be launched by American management companies will be a new cloud-based, managed service, a company spokesman told Business Week.
It is called American Manager.
The company is not disclosing the name of the company.
In a statement to Business Insider, American Manager CEO Mark Molloy said: “We have always focused on the needs of our clients and our team and are taking advantage of our increased resources to accelerate our product development and launch.”
He also said American Manager “will be fully aligned with the next wave of management software, which will include the introduction of a new service called American Management Solutions.”
Molloy’s statement didn’t address how American Manager would integrate with existing enterprise systems or what the company plans to do with the cloud.
American managers have had to grapple with new technology for a while.
The advent of cloud-powered management systems like CloudWatch, or a new platform called OpenShift, has dramatically changed the business of managing a variety of systems from small to large organizations.
Companies have struggled to keep up with the pace of changes to the software, and the rapid growth of cloud computing and data analytics has made them even more challenging to manage.
Mollay told BusinessWeek that American managers are taking a “wait and see” approach.
American Management Solutions, or AMS, is a new management software company.
It started out as an open source project that American Manager developed and used to manage its own systems.
But in December, the company announced that it had purchased OpenShift.AMS is an “accelerated” management software project that will allow companies to integrate new features into their existing business software to take advantage of the latest cloud technologies.
American management companies that have been struggling with their management software in recent years are taking note of the challenges and are ramped up production for the new year.
The first of the new AMS features is expected in the next few weeks, said the source familiar.
Other American managers like Amazon, Microsoft, Google and Salesforce have announced new software and features for their own business platforms that will help them meet the growing demands for managed software.
Other new American management tools are also expected to hit the market this year.
