“It’s clear that the ChangeGear product was well-planned and developed. From the day we installed the product, it ran perfectly on our existing infrastructure with no additional hardware or software investment required, and it worked well with our other applications. It’s just a great product.”

“ChangeGear is an excellent product and has addressed a major issue in our IT Governance. The increased level of visibility and management of IT resources has enabled us to implement stricter change management controls, which in turn improves communication. The resource owner must authorize the change, so there is no more saying ‘I know nothing about this’.”
