SevOne founder launches start-up


Pliant, a workflow automation platform has secured more than  $2.5 million in funding, led by former SevOne startup executive, Vess Bakalov.

Backed by Newfund Capital, New Stack Ventures, Leading Edge, and other angel and family investors, the funding will be used to launch the company.

Bakalov is a founder of SevOne in Newark.  The company that monitors the health of corporate computer systems was later sold to private equity investor Bain Capital after a growth spurt.

The company’s headquarters later moved to Boston and Bakalov later left SevOne. SevOne still has a site in Newark at the University of Delaware STAR Campus, but has kept a low profile in the state’s technology scene. 

“In today’s on-demand and fast-paced economy, Pliant lets you build sophisticated workflows to automate complex business and IT processes in minutes, not weeks,” said  Bakalov, Pliant CEO. “Our technology allows ITOps/SecOps/DevOps to automatically respond to events by connecting their current run books to the infrastructure, limiting the human intervention required to keep your enterprise running at peak performance.”

Pliant helps teams quickly create sophisticated and robust workflows across all of their systems without having to spend the time and money on building traditional fragile integrations, a release stated.

Nick Moran, Managing Partner, New Stack Ventures stated,  “Pliant is solving expensive IT problems with a versatile and easy to implement solution. There are many players in the RPA space but no one has brought this code-light approach to IT operations.”
