VoyenceÂ Inc., the leading provider of network configuration management solutions, today announced it has become the first Network Configuration Management company to achieve Ready for IBM Tivoli certification through IBMÂs Orchestration and Provisioning Automation Library (OPAL) initiative to help organizations automate their IT environments. The Ready for IBM Tivoli Certification acknowledges Voyence has passed IBMÂs criteria for building VoyenceControl! workflows for IBM Tivoli Intelligent Orchestrator.
"WeÂre very pleased to become the first network configuration management company to become part of IBMÂs OPAL initiative. It means a lot to our customers and will play a role in our future product development initiatives," said Susan Nash, President and CEO, Voyence. "Having VoyenceControl! in the OPAL program enables us to arm customers with highly optimized and automated change management best-practices.Â
IBMÂs OPAL initiative and Tivoli Intelligent Orchestrator product address two of the most common IT issues Â over dependence on manual processes and low utilization of resources - by automating changes to IT environments. This is accomplished by combining workflow models with logical sequential steps for addressing ever changing business conditions. Workflow models are reusable and possess automated sense-and-respond capabilities, thus saving organizations a considerable amount of time, money and resources. By eliminating redundant tasks, IT organizations can streamline everyday activities and redeploy resources on more strategic initiatives that map directly to business goals.
"VoyenceControl! is now able to play a role in our strategy to help customers cut costs, streamline their IT operations and create on demand business environments,Â said Lucian Bifano, vice president, business development and alliances for IBM Tivoli Software.
Working hand-in-hand, VoyenceControl! and Tivoli Intelligent Orchestrator will enable companies to:
-Protect existing investments, lower implementation costs and deliver a rapid return on investment by improving the utilization of existing hardware, software, storage and network devices.
-Automate repetitive, manual tasks performed by system, network, and storage administrators.
-Allow companies to manipulate their IT environment in real time to achieve desired business goals. This is accomplished by sensing the increase or decrease in IT resource demand and automatically taking action to reallocate resources accordingly throughout the entire system, allowing multiple applications to be efficiently run according to business priorities on a common, dynamic, intelligently managed IT infrastructure.
