Nolio Expands Its Sphere of Influence to IBM
Websphere IT Teams Now Join the Devops Movement
PARAMUS, NJ--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) - Nolio, a leading provider of application release automation software, today announced the availability of Nolio ASAP 3.1 for IBM WebSphere. The announcement brings the IBM Websphere community into one of 2011's fastest growing IT movements, Devops, which analysts describe as a 'grassroots movement to deal with the complexity of servicing modern applications.'
The integrated management of Websphere versions 6 and the latest version 7 with Nolio's highly regarded Application Service Automation Platform (ASAP) was driven by demand from customers of the world's leading enterprise development environment. With the new release, they can replicate the agile techniques many deploy in development through to their datacenters and production environments, bringing faster application upgrades despite the increased complexity of modern business applications, many written in Java within necessarily complex Websphere environments.
Nolio 3.1, released earlier this year, was designed to minimize the possibility of human error during routine maintenance and upgrades as well as to provide a clear, fully documented audit trail of interventions and process workflows should this be required. These features typically result in a 30 percent uplift in productivity and a six times faster release cycle for release managers using Nolio.
"Our aim at Nolio is to solve the toughest technical problems with the biggest business value," said Eran Sher, VP Products at Nolio. "We know that IBM Websphere customers face the same challenges as we see in other sites, but often they have even more complex applications due to the robustness of the platform. With Nolio 3.1 Websphere customers can deploy the world's best release deployment automation on their strategic platform of choice."
"IBM dominates the enterprise application development space and is prevalent in most large corporate datacenters, creating a large IT community facing similar application release issues across a broadly homogenous platform," said Rachel Chalmers, research director at The 451 Group. "To date, this community has had limited exposure to the grass-roots Devops movement and its promise of increased automation, reduced human error and IT cost reduction. As an early leader in Devops, Nolio is now opening up the IBM WebSphere world to its Devops offerings for the first time, bringing a fresh approach to IBM Websphere release management."
