Opalis Announces IT Process Automation Solution for CA AutoSys Workload Automation
Opalis Software Inc., the market leader in IT process automation software, today announced the availability of Opalis integration with CA AutoSys® Workload Automation, a solution for accelerating the design and delivery of complex workload processes leveraging event-based automation and dynamic critical path analysis. The new Opalis Integration Pack for CA AutoSys release incorporates CA AutoSys workload automation tasks with other aspects of IT operations, resulting in faster IT operations and increased IT efficiency.

Through the integration, application processes being managed in CA AutoSys can be leveraged in response to problem and change management, service center events and exceptions, problem tickets, and remediation requests to increase production timeframes, increase system availability, and manage risks for enterprises. The Opalis Integration Pack for CA AutoSys allows users to trigger CA AutoSys workload processing from a variety of external systems events and can convey data from CA AutoSys to other enterprise systems for additional automated actions. In combination with Opalis, workflows can monitor the status of CA AutoSys jobs and take automated diagnostic and corrective actions for CA AutoSys failed jobs while generating Service Desk tickets in response to those job status indicators.

Opalis delivers value to the IT data center, as well as enterprise business operations by providing more integrations than any other vendor in the market, said Charles Crouchman, chief technology officer for Opalis Software. Unlike BMC and HP, our integration solutions cover the tools from all leading systems management tools vendors, supporting heterogeneous IT environments across the enterprise. This Integration Pack for CA AutoSys Workload Automation enables enterprise IT organizations to automate the management of CA AutoSys jobs and leverage CA AutoSys processing into wider automation schemes with processes that are simple, fast, and effective. As a result, CAs IT management solutions, coupled with the deep integration that Opalis solutions provide, helps enterprise IT manage complexity and improve service quality in the data center and beyond.

The new Integration Pack for CA AutoSys from Opalis adds tremendous value to CAs advanced workload automation solution, said Jim Anderson, vice president of product management at CA. This product is a prime example of Opalis continued dedication to providing innovative integration packs for CA customers that enable IT to automate across IT management silos. The new integration enables enterprises to achieve greater IT efficiency and business agility by automating crucial operations tasks, such as pre-job and post-job execution procedures, moving jobs from test to production, and triggering CA AutoSys job execution.

Opalis delivers unique solutions that enable IT process automation and IT services orchestration inside and outside the data center, across heterogeneous IT ecosystems. The Opalis solutions are easily implemented and quickly return value. Unlike traditional business services management, data center automation, or IT service automation products from other vendors, Opalis employs a scalable enterprise services architecture to automate processes and workflows for critical IT initiatives, such as virtualization, provisioning, ITIL, disaster recovery, consolidation, and security. Opalis is the leader in seamless integration with systems management tools from leading vendors including CA, EMC, Microsoft, IBM, VMware, BladeLogic, BMC Software, and HP Software, thereby providing the integration bridge that allows IT management to orchestrate intelligent automation throughout the data center regardless of the complexity and silos in their IT infrastructure.

With Opalis, enterprises can quickly realize the benefits of IT process automation, driving down management costs and increasing productivity, while enforcing compliant best practices aimed at improving performance and availability of critical business applications.
