When IT operations begin to drift from the strictly on-premises model into the cloud, businesses find themselves with a hybrid model that can pose serious management challenges. In response, a growing sector of business software management applications has emerged, and Novell is looking to make its mark in the field with its latest release, the Novell Operations Center.
The Operations Center grew out of a product called the Novell Business Service Manager, and offers what’s billed as a full integration of the company’s portfolio of products. The Operations Center offers monitoring for availability and performance across both in-house IT operations and deployments in the cloud. CIO Update takes a look.
Measuring the performance levels of business services is a critical task for enterprise IT operations. That’s where the business service management (BSM) category of software solutions comes into play and is why, this week, enterprise software vendor Novell (NASDAQ:NOVL) rolled out its latest release, Novell Operations Center.
With Operations Center, Novell is building on the efforts of its overall WorkloadIQ strategy which aims to deliver a suite of technology for handling virtual and physical workloads on premises and in the cloud. Novell Operations Center hooks into IT assets, monitoring them for availability and performance metrics as determined by the business.
