Everything about Web and Network Monitoring

Go Gomez!

Congratulations to Mass-based Gomez Inc., the maker of analytics software for web-based applications! It has turned its first profit and is looking more and more like a public company.


Gomez posted net income of $1.9 million during the first six months of 2009, versus a loss of $868,000 in the same time period of 2008.

Gomez was founded in 1997, but it’s had an $80.5 million initial public offering (IPO) filing up in the air since May 2008. Gomez has maintained that the long IPO delay has helped it learn how to behave like a public company, according to CEO Jaime Ellertson.

Gomez makes software to handle cross-browser testing, web load and performance testing, web performance management and business analytics related to web performance.

It’s always encouraging to hear about smaller tech firms doing well – especially in this challenging economy.
