CHICAGO, IL (Oct. 23, 2017) – Sphera, the largest global provider of Operational Excellence software and information services, today unveiled its new cloud-based software platform, SpheraCloud™, at inspire North America, the company’s user conference.

Featuring a responsive, configurable and intuitive cloud-based user interface, the SpheraCloud platform is designed to help businesses improve decision-making and performance with an integrated view of their risk and compliance portfolio at all levels—from single-site deployments to global rollouts.

SpheraCloud connects stakeholders across the entire risk value chain and provides a holistic and highly efficient approach to advancing Operational Excellence. Sphera’s cloud-based applications, data and analytics among its Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S), Operational Risk and Product Stewardship software will be integrated into a single platform with SpheraCloud.

“SpheraCloud represents a quantum leap for Integrated Risk Management technology designed to help professionals manage risk and compliance with the benefits of cloud-based software,” said Paul Marushka, Sphera’s president and CEO. “SpheraCloud is an integrated platform of applications across all of our product lines with prescriptive analytics based upon an interconnected network of aggregated information from Internet of Things (IoT) devices and other interfaces allowing for real-time monitoring of performance.”

SpheraCloud is a complement to Sphera’s robust on-premise solutions. Customers now have the flexibility to leverage Sphera’s on-premise solutions, cloud-based platform, or hybrid model that blends on-premise and cloud capabilities.

“Our research demonstrates the rapidly growing demand for cloud-based solutions that are configurable for enterprise clients and deliver out-of-the-box functionality for midsized organizations,” said David Metcalfe, the CEO of Verdantix, an independent research firm. “Supported by Sphera’s expertise, content, and significant investments in technology and software services, we believe the marketplace will positively embrace their innovative new SpheraCloud platform.”
