The Opalis integration solution for Intelliden will enable customers to streamline network automation processes, improve operational efficiencies, and increase ROI from existing IT investments.
"In today's connected world, Intelliden's customers rely on our network automation solutions to control, manage, and scale their mission-critical networks," said Rahul Sachdev, vice president of marketing and business development at Intelliden. "Based on discussions with our customers and a thorough evaluation of the marketplace, we determined Opalis to be an excellent choice as our process automation software partner. Opalis offers one of the most innovative and proven process automation technologies, and is easy to implement and scale, all vital factors to our clients globally. The combination of Intelliden and Opalis enables our customers to seamlessly link their network configuration, change management, and compliance processes with the rest of their IT applications."The Opalis integration solution for Intelliden provides key capabilities, including:
-- Closed Loop Network Automation - automate end-to-end network management processes by linking network fault monitoring, root cause analysis, and performance management applications. This will result in faster network fault detection and resolution through 'closed loop network automation.'
-- Comprehensive IT Orchestration - seamless integration between Intelliden NCCM and trouble ticketing, asset management, and other IT service management applications from vendors including BMC, CA, EMC, HP, IBM, and Microsoft. This can help customers preserve their existing IT investments without the need to migrate to a single solution suite.
-- Accelerated ITIL Implementation and IT Compliance - integrate Intelliden NCCM with a 'federated' enterprise CMDB, thereby reducing the effort needed to manage configuration items (CIs) across a multi-vendor network. This can also help enforce ITIL based processes and best practices across heterogeneous applications.

"Opalis' technology enables Intelliden to provide an IT automation solution that delivers immediate value and tangible benefits to their customers, such as maximizing network availability, reliability, and performance, as well as enhanced accountability, control and visibility across network operations."
