Confio Software selected as a Colorado Companies to Watch

BOULDER, Colo. - June 07, 2011 - Confio Software, the makers of the award-winning Ignite8 database performance analysis software tool, has joined a select group of Colorado companies to be recognized as one of Colorado Companies to Watch. This selection acknowledges Confio's rapid growth, customer adoption and dedication as a leading software company in Colorado. Colorado Companies to Watch honors second-stage companies that develop valuable products and services, create quality jobs, enrich communities and create new industries throughout Colorado.

"We're excited and honored to be named a Colorado Company to Watch. As anyone in Colorado can attest to, our state offers the best environment for inspired work and play," said Matt Larson, CEO and founder of Confio. "We've doubled the size of Confio in the past two years and Colorado offers us a great base from which to do that. If it wasn't for the support of our local business community and the amazing technological talent residing in Colorado, Confio would not be as successful as we are today."

Confio Software develops database performance solutions that improve service and reduce the cost of operating databases and the applications that depend on them. Confio's unique use of response-time analysis in its flagship product Ignite8 helps database administrators (DBAs), developers and DBA managers identify, analyze, and resolve the most complex and costly performance problems.

"We are pleased to recognize Confio for their outstanding contribution to fueling the economic fire of our wonderful state. Thank you Confio!" says Stephanie Steffens, Colorado Companies to Watch program director.

Colorado Companies to Watch is different from other awards programs. Because the program focuses on our entire state, and not specific industries, it provides an opportunity to paint a realistic picture of a true statewide economy. Since applicants are evaluated on more than growth, it widens the playing field to companies not often recognized for the critical differences they make in their industry, their community, region and our state.
