ATLANTA, January 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
With Opswise Automation Center, Stonebranch customers can benefit from dynamic workload initiation methods, intelligent managed file transfer delivered in a single, yet open, automation agent. A web-accessible user interface can extend advanced automation capabilities that include workload lifecycle management, beyond IT, to meet the demands of new businesses as well as established global corporations.
Stonebranch, Inc. today announced the general availability of Opswise Automation Center v5.1, which includes the Opswise Controller, Opswise Universal Agents (formerly known as Indesca, Independent Scheduling Agents) and Opswise MFT (formerly known as Infitran Managed File Transfer).
In less than one year since the acquisition of Opswise Software, Stonebranch not only integrated the products but they now deliver a unified agent technology, where customers using multiple Stonebranch products have only one agent to install and maintain. Adding other Opswise product functionality requires only a new license key or a minor modification, versus a new installation of the agent. Customers currently using the agents from Stonebranch with another vendors scheduling engine can make a simple modification to allow the agents to auto-register with the Opswise Manager, whether they choose to either integrate with or migrate from their existing tools in the future.
Additionally, Opswise introduces workload lifecycle management capabilities giving customers the ability to bundle various workload artifacts and move them to different environments using the new bundling and promotion actions, further delivering the vision to build-out an all-encompassing Automation solution.
Opswise Automation Center v5.1 enables a central script repository to allow customers to lock-down production environments, leaving all maintenance and access to be done at a single location with scripts deployed at runtime. This is in addition to the ability to retrieve troubleshooting information from the central web-based user interface, without compromising production server access.
Opswise Automation Center is the most modern solution designed for self-service access to allow even end-users to dynamically and immediately initiate critical processing of business data, whether planned or unplanned. Highly scalable, from even commodity hardware, Opswise is self-managing, self-healing, and self-serviceable. The simplicity of the 100% web-based user interface, Opswise Automation Center makes IT automation accessible and understandable to even the business users, who are not familiar with "job scheduling" techniques, but highly interested in having graphical reporting dashboards.
"Opswise Automation Center v5.1 continues to deliver on our vision of simplifying advanced automation, making it universally accessible and understandable by both IT and the business", said Wolfgang Bothe, Stonebranch's CEO. "In a market, where companies typically take several years to integrate technology from new acquisitions, Stonebranch has been able to complete this integration in less than 1 year. "
Stonebranch solutions are for modern IT organizations that need guaranteed results. Opswise Automation Center provides enterprise-wide automation of complex IT business processes in a simple, intuitive way - from Amazon Web Services in the cloud to z/OS batch processes on the mainframe. Stonebranch clients include some of the world's largest financial, healthcare and technology institutions.
