Evolven today announced the availability of a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based Change Monitoring service, that is redefining change and configuration management for the modern data center and cloud.
Evolven's Change Monitoring solution is a new software-as-a-service based application that monitors, analyzes and delivers actionable information on changes and configurations. This service empowers IT operations to reduce the risk of change and improve stability. It was designed from the ground up to deal with the complexity and dynamics of the modern data center and cloud environments.
'IT Operations needs to take a new approach,' says Sasha Gilenson, CEO of Evolven, 'Evolven's Change Monitoring solution was specifically designed to meet the demanding dynamics and complexity requirements driving today's IT environments. It will allow IT operations to know exactly what has changed in their environments, eliminate configuration drift, maintain environment consistency, validate changes, and investigate incident root-cause.'
A recent survey found that of IT professionals, 69% held that their current configuration management approach was ineffective for running modern data centers and cloud (http://www.evolven.com/press-releases/69-percent-of-it-professionals-surveyed.html ).
"These reactions emphasize the hurdles that stand in the way of achieving effective Change and Configuration Management," Gilenson adds, 'Existing change and configuration tools are too rigid and limited for collecting and analyzing comprehensive environment configuration information, especially at a granular level of detail.'
Key industry analyst, Jean-Pierre Garbani, a Vice President at Forrester Research , recently reached similar conclusions: 'Today's discovery solutions are too slow to be effective in supporting processes such as incident management, performance management, change and configuration management, and release management (I&O Execs: It's Time To Rediscover BSM 2011 (http://www.evolven.com/download-forrester-report-bsm.html )).
Evolven's SaaS-based solution provides results in minutes, dynamically crawling (with no upfront setup) and collecting comprehensive environment configuration information (at a granular level), applying powerful analytics to identify the critical changes posing risk, and translating this into critical decision-support information. Evolven customers enjoy clear visibility into all infrastructure changes and can identify potential problems long before they escalate into incidents, reducing the risk of production outages and supporting top performing operations.
'The Evolven solution enables us to proactively avoid outages, reduce problems and align with best practices for IT management, like ITIL," says Evolven customer Rafi Hirsh, IT Infrastructure Manager at Clalit Health Services Organization.
