Matrix42 Empirum v12 Now Simplifying Windows 7 Migrations

Hot on the heels of their U.S. debut, long-time leader of IT service and systems management, Matrix42 ( today announced the release of its latest market-leading systems management software - Matrix42 Empirum v12.

Combining a strong, highly flexible software packaging feature and enhanced usability for administrators, Empirum v12 provides broad migration support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. As with past versions of the software, customers, partners and prospects played a key role in contributing their requirements and feedback to Matrix42’s new product.

“Empirum v12 provides enhanced integration of extensive and widely used virtualization technologies,” said Shane Eliason, president of Matrix42 USA. "Matrix42 Empirum Inventory can now identify virtualized systems and assign these systems to the respective host systems. Applications virtualized with VMWare ThinApp are detected, identified and then correctly assigned in the license management tool.”

Earlier this year in a Matrix42 User Group, 250 customers and prospects had the opportunity to experience the Package Robot, an additional software packaging alternative and a tool for reoccurring tasks. The Package Robot is comprised of more than 800 commands in a very simple script language. Users don’t have to memorize these commands — instead, they can use the drag-and-drop functionality to place them into a graphical editor.

The broad spectrum of options includes the packaging of software by vendors who do not provide third-party packaging support, automated e-mail collection from various web services and the automated print-out of a multitude of documents at any defined time. The Package Robot is a highly flexible tool that complements existing technologies such as MSI.

“While creating this product our team developed new functionality and administrative works that enhance performance during everyday operations,” continued Eliason. “As a result, the new version allows users to perform even more administrative routine tasks via the web-based console. When combined with the features of Matrix42’s 'Service Store 5.2' service management tool, Matrix42 Empirum v12 makes fully automated IT systems management a reality.”
