CAMPBELL, Calif. – April 5, 2011 – Nimsoft today announced Nimsoft Unified Manager, a multi-tenant IT Management As-A-Service solution that combines industry-leading infrastructure monitoring and ready- to-use ITIL®-based service management capabilities in a single solution.
By unifying monitoring and service management, Nimsoft Unified Manager empowers service providers and IT organisations to more efficiently and effectively optimise delivery of IT services to business users across internal and external IT infrastructures ― including public and private cloud environments.
The solution is built on the successful Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (now known as Nimsoft Monitor) and the customer-proven Nimsoft Service Desk technology.
The need to constantly drive down costs combined with ever-expanding technology complexity, are driving IT organisations to adopt new technologies and processes, said David Coyle, research vice president, IT operations at Gartner. Flexible, unified solutions that promote integration between monitoring and management will be key selection criteria over the coming years.”
Nimsoft Unified Manager provides intuitive, out-of-the-box logic and bi-directional integration between monitoring and service management to meet the needs of today’s collaborative, fast-paced IT operations. It will be offered either on-demand (SaaS) or on-premise.
This integration between monitoring and service management radically improves the productivity of IT operations ― helping to ensure that problems and potential problems are quickly and accurately addressed based on their impact to the business.
"Managing client private cloud infrastructure and protecting sensitive client data in globally distributed data centres is our business. Now the Nimsoft Unified Manager gives our ZoneIT Private Cloud clients visibility into their virtual systems and our customer service team improved support tools to scale, commented Dan Dayanim, Director, Client Services Delivery at IPR International, LLC. We’ve been searching for a unified solution that pulls together monitoring for our multi-vendor private cloud infrastructure with our ITIL service delivery model and a centralized multi-tenant client portal. We’re excited that the Nimsoft platform fits our strategic direction and will help drive growth."
Nimsoft Unified Manager features an intuitive unified user experience that guides users through ITIL-based workflows—from alarms to alerts to problem resolution—while streamlining service delivery, enabling reduced business downtime and improved service quality.
