Evolven applies analytics to transform change and configuration management
Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Evolven (http://www.evolven.com) today announced that the company's change and configuration management solution was recognized in a new Ovum analyst report, calling Evolven "a revolutionary change and configuration management vendor."
In this report, Ovum VP and Principal analyst, Roy Illsley explores how Cloud computing creates a change twilight zone where critical questions remain unanswered.
The report recognizes that over the last decade, IT service management (ITSM) has matured as a discipline, but new and popular disruptive technologies are now incompatible with some of the practices and procedures that have been established. The complexity of change and configuration in today’s increasingly dynamic and virtualized environments requires a cross-domain approach to change and configuration management, optimized for performance, risk, and service assurance.
The report expounds on Evolven's approach, saying that “this approach not only resonates with the original business service management (BSM) thinking of ten years ago, but combines a new more dynamic approach to controlling complexity of configurations in a highly virtualized environment.”
The report, entitled 'Change and Configuration Management in the Cloud,' focuses on Evolven's unique qualities over other enterprise vendors, explaining: "Evolven applies analytics to transform change and configuration management."
"We are very pleased to receive recognition that says how Evolven is redefining change and configuration management," says Sasha Gilenson, CEO of Evolven, "The Evolven Change and Configuration Management solution was specifically designed from the ground up to meet the demanding dynamics and complexity requirements of today's modern data center and cloud with near real-time feedback, cross-domain insights, and granular detail that leverage powerful analytics, to deliver actionable information."
Evolven was interviewed for this report.
