Quintica customers who are looking to automate the management, control, and enforcement of configuration changes across servers, networks, databases, and applications – in the traditional data centre and in the cloud, can now do so by adopting the Bladelogic Automation Suite from vendor partner BMC.
BMC BladeLogic Service Automation solutions enable a business to take advantage of reliable service delivery as well as meet customer expectations and SLAs. Which, due to the ease of deployment and use, requires minimum effort from staff as well as little up skilling of employees.
“Service automation is a growing requirement of businesses looking to increase IT productivity in the areas of configuration management of servers, networks, databases, and applications in the data centre,” states Kerry Evans, MD at Quintica.
“With the Bladelogic Automation Suite a customer can manage the complete application delivery process – from development to production – while also reducing costs, decreasing errors, and accelerating time to value for business-critical services.
“Perhaps more importantly the software enables a customer to increase compliance and dramatically reduce the effort and time associated with audits, allowing them to better adhere to regulatory and compliance needs.”
According to Evans, the Bladelogic Automation Suite is made up of a series of modules that include: server automation; network automation; database automation; application release automation; cloud lifecycle management; orchestration; CMDB; discovery; dashboard and analytics; and service level management.
“In today’s complex IT environments businesses need solutions that through their design, automate and streamline processes, while at the same time remove the need for IT staff to dedicate large chunks of their time to the management of every aspect of their systems.
“BMC reported that when 20 of its customers deployed Bladelogic over a collective 3 000 servers, a total of 36 000 man-hours were saved, and productivity increased by nearly 35%,” ends Evans.
