New York, NY (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
ShoreGroup, Inc., a premier managed service, management software development and professional services firm, today announced that it has completed its largest unified communications management deployment to date within the financial sector. The company’s CaseSentry Operational Services Automation (OSA) software is now managing unified communications at 4 of the top 10 global financial institutions, with a total of more than 600,000 endpoints spanning 65 countries now under coverage in this industry.
The latest financial institution being managed by the company’s CaseSentry platform consists of 240,000 Cisco IP phone and video endpoints, and more than 1,100 systems supporting the bank’s critical unified communication and collaboration services. The deployment also included configuration of dashboard applications aligned to the bank’s global business process, and e-bonding that supports integration between CaseSentry and the bank’s enterprise service management application.
Since activation, CaseSentry’s automated monitoring process continuously conducts more than 50,000 simultaneous tests on the environment to identify, validate and provide immediate visibility to the precise source of current or emerging issues that may impact the bank’s business process. In addition, CaseSentry collects and analyzes data from more than 28,000 sources to provide visibility to real-time performance issues and long-term trending. Support personnel manage the environment using intuitive dashboards, status displays and real-time case updates sent to the bank’s service management system for attention.
“Large distributed financial institutions are ideal candidates to benefit from unified communications and collaboration applications. As these technologies become an integral part of their business process, the need to manage their availability and performance becomes paramount,” said Scott Kimmelman, ShoreGroup’s Vice President of Business Development. “There are several factors that are driving our success in the global financial sector.
