Cutover tackles resilience with orchestration and observability

Cutover logoAs enterprises work to build resilience, there is a need for tools to assist the process. We met London and New York-based Cutover recently for an introduction to their orchestration and observability platform and what it means in practical terms.

Operating at the execution end, the platform pulls together information and activity from across relevant areas of the business to help organisations plan, execute and review their operations. As the name suggests, the platform comes into play at cutover points, with the aim of making complex IT tasks easier and more automated. As well as supporting operational resilience, it also supports application release orchestration, cloud migration, and platform implementation. Key features include the ability to orchestrate work through dynamic and automated runbooks and observe activities live through analytics and visualisations. An enterprise-friendly SaaS product, it integrates into IT ecosystems including service management and DevOps tools and is aligned with agile and collaboration approaches. 

The company has attracted big brand customers including Barclays, with Financial Services its prime sector. According to CEO Ky Nichol and CPO Marcus Wildsmith, the company is growing rapidly with revenue doubling yoy. Since it was founded in 2014, it has raised $50m in funding, with the most recent being $35m Series B financing in March 2021, led by Eldridge, alongside existing investors Index Ventures, Sussex Place Ventures and Contour Ventures.

As well as addressing CXO agendas like operational resilience and helping accelerate the execution end of digital strategies, two other aspects stand out. The platform brings people and teams together from across the businesses where it is deployed, and it also recognises and supports the value of human-machine collaboration, a topic TechMarketView has been exploring through our Augmented Intelligence coverage.
