New platform integrates DevOps with AIOps to speed service delivery across large scale Hybrid IT environments
Micro Focus (LSE:MCRO; NYSE:MFGP) today announced the IT Operations Management (ITOM) Platform, the industry’s first containerized microservices platform for IT Operations. The ITOM Platform is built on a foundation of shared microservices—including analytics, orchestration and ChatOps collaboration. Built on the Micro Focus Container Deployment Foundation and featuring fast installation, limited upgrades downtime, pre-integrated use cases and built in scalability, the platform’s microservices are re-useable and include RESTful APIs to enable customers and partners to easily extend their IT management and DevOps processes. Micro Focus also announced the availability of two new ITOM products now offered on the ITOM platform—Network Operations Management and Data Protection, along with new versions of its existing four product lines now compatible with the new platform.
“Successful digital transformations require that IT organizations dramatically increase the pace of delivery while reducing the cost and risk of operating IT services,” said Tom Goguen, senior vice president and general manager, IT Operations Management, Micro Focus. “The Micro Focus ITOM Platform, the industry’s first container-based platform for AIOps, enables us to rapidly deliver innovations in service management, cloud management, and application and infrastructure monitoring that can be deployed on public and private cloud or traditional infrastructure—and operated without the cost and risk normally associated with legacy enterprise IT and SaaS solutions."
First Containerized Microservices Platform for IT Operations
Based on early successes of the Container Deployment Foundation, the ITOM Platform provides IT Ops teams the basis for continuous and modern IT operations with a catalog of new microservices. Unlike traditional enterprise solutions designed for SaaS or on premise, this is the only platform to support flexible deployment (bare metal, virtual and cloud), automated and dynamic scaling, simplified upgrade and maintenance and true customer choice. Features include:
“The potential value of a simplified deployment model, more frequent updates, and improved scalability offered through containerized architecture at Micro Focus has been clear to us for some time,” said Luke Bradley, senior manager of Engineering, Vodafone. “It’s exciting to see Micro Focus move to the next level of this architecture with its ITOM Platform. Being able to easily add and integrate microservices across our domain will simplify day to day operations for our team, and getting cross-domain insights will bring an increased level of intelligence to our operations over what we have today.”
“The enhanced container-based Micro Focus ITOM platform is a true architecture designed for compelling levels of integration and customization, with distinctive strengths in deployment, scalability, and versatility,” said Dennis Drogseth, vice president, Enterprise Management Associates. “Through this platform, Micro Focus is combining breadth of function with ease of deployment and administration, with special appeal to IT organizations seeking a more holistic, more efficient, and more cross-silo way of working.”
