Opalis Updates Run Book Automation Tool with Expanded Systems Management Integration Features

New Integration Packs offered for BladeLogic, BMC, CA, and IBM improve integration across IT silos

Opalis Software, Inc. has released new Integration Packs for its Opalis Integration Server technology. The packs support BladeLogic Operations Manager, BMC Event Manager, CA Unicenter NSM, and IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus, helping customers build process automation solutions across heterogeneous IT environments at any scale.

“Most enterprises rely on a number of systems management solutions to maximize performance and service availability, and yet the handoffs and information flow that need to occur between them are not always seamless,” said Charles Crouchman, CTO of Opalis, in a statement.

“Opalis provides bi-directional integrations that connect IT systems management tools -- such as monitoring to help desk and event management -- by automating and orchestrating processes between these systems management tools, even when they are from different vendors.”

Opalis tools provide automation by orchestrating and integrating IT processes; manual burdensome, repetitive IT efforts are reduced. Opalis delivers a large number of reusable activity templates and pre-defined processes so IT organizations can rapidly design and deploy automated run book procedures.

The new Opalis Integration Packs provide bi-directional integration so IT can:

  • Incorporate systems monitoring solutions and problem-management processes and responses by connecting data center components with automated processes

  • Automate problem and incident management routines faster by allowing users to automate diagnostics routines, corrective actions, and data transfer

  • Coordinate and consolidate events between help desk and monitoring applications
