Alere Projects Three-Year, 50 Percent Overall Administration Cost Savings Using SevOne’s Distributed Application and Performance Management Solution
SevOne, Inc., an innovator in network and application performance management tools and solutions, announced today that Alere (formerly Matria Healthcare), a leading provider of integrated, comprehensive health enhancement programs to health plans, employers and government agencies, has standardized on the company's application and performance management solution, PASTM (Performance Appliance Solution). Through the ability to optimize element reporting, improve device administration and achieve a holistic view of server performance, Alere has seen a 50 percent administration cost savings to date and this trend is expected to continue moving forward.
Through easy to use automation features built into PAS, Alere staff can apply group policies at the device and object level to improve the monitoring of devices, elements and interfaces, while significantly reducing administration tasks and dramatically improving network operations and productivity."With SevOne's Quick Status View, IT staff questioning the health of a particular server, can access the device and receive an instant CPU utilization, memory drive and traffic pattern report," said Jay Scott, performance engineer for Alere. "From there it's pretty much point-and-click on what you want to look at or drill down on. In other performance monitoring solutions, I would have to run three or more reports, until I found the information I was looking for. With SevOne, it's a couple of clicks and I have everything I need at my fingertips."
As one of the country's leading providers of managed wellcare which includes operating regional call centers staffed by more than 3,000 nursing professionals, the ability to expand database capacity while achieving a high level of network reliability required a forward-projecting capacity management solution that reported into the existing management interface. Using SevOne tools customized to his environment, Scott was able to increase network availability, redundancy and uptime of his remote centers in disaster recovery situations.
Scott also points to PAS's return on investment, "The SevOne solution deployed by Alere is able to monitor five times the number of elements for half the cost of competing vendors while helping me achieve an overall 50 percent administration cost savings."
"Alere has a powerful mission of helping their clients in the overwhelming task of transforming the healthcare system from within. SevOne is honored to participate in their mission by helping to transform their internal IT performance management processes. We are committed to Alere's success and will work closely with their expert team as requirements evolve," said Michael Phelan, SevOne's CEO.
