Today we have a big announcement. IntraSee has joined the Gideon Taylor family. Both companies have been stalwarts in the Oracle ecosystem for more than 15 years. While IntraSee’s focus has been on the user’s experience in the enterprise, Gideon Taylor has been known for the automation of business processes. It was natural to join the two together. Our customers now benefit from the back end to the front end with a focus on driving real ROI whether you are on premise, in the cloud, or on SaaS.
My co-founder, Paul Isherwood, and I started IntraSee in 2005 and what a ride it has been growing from a consulting company, to a software company and ultimately a SaaS Cloud company. We have successfully navigated through major shifts in the enterprise software market, the financial crisis of 2007, the beginning of the cloud era and most recently the pandemic. No matter what was thrown at us, we adapted to serve our clients. 2021 was no exception with the sudden passing of Paul.
In this next chapter of IntraSee, we become a new division of Gideon Taylor where we will continue to serve our existing clients and with our digital assistant, Ida, carve out an exciting path for both companies. I will lead that division and look forward to a long partnership with Paul Taylor and his leadership team. You can read all about our announcement in the press release issued today.
I would like to take a moment to address all the important people who got IntraSee to this point.
To our customers:
Thank you for believing in IntraSee. It has been an absolute pleasure to help you improve your experiences for your employees, managers, students and faculty. We are only getting stronger from here with a broader cloud portfolio, the benefits of scale, and even greater investment in Ida, our digital assistant. We know many of you are planning major investments in the next ten years. We are excited for your future and to help get you there.
To our employees:
The IntraSee family is the reason we are here today. Each one of you, past and present, has contributed to our mission of bringing great usability to enterprise software. I owe you all a heartfelt thank you for your hard work and dedication. The support from the current team over the last year in particular is more than I could have imagined. I, and our clients, have been lucky to work with you and I look forward to continuing on the InstraSee journey with you as my colleagues.
To Paul Isherwood:
I remember the first presentation I saw you give back at PeopleSoft. The entire presentation was built with dynamic HTML and this was about 1999. When I asked you, “Why not use PowerPoint?” you simply responded with “Why would I use PowerPoint? This is so much cooler.” Throughout the 15+ years we were partners, you always helped us imagine something so much cooler. In your memory, I and the rest of the combined InstraSee/Gideon Taylor team, are going to push this mission to the next level like only we know how.
