No Limits Software joins BMC Technology Alliance Program (TAP) to automate data center change management

No Limits Software joins BMC Technology Alliance Program (TAP) to automate data center change management











No Limits Software – RaMP


St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 10, 2011

No Limits Software has joined the BMC Technology Alliance Program (TAP) to integrate their Rack Management Platform (RaMP) data center management solution with BMC Remedy Change Management.

Integration with Remedy Change Management will provide several key advantages over data center management systems which rely on manual entry of system changes. First, automated collection of system configuration data improves data accuracy while greatly reducing the time and cost of manually collecting the data. Second, automated snapshots of the configuration data will allow data center managers to quickly find system changes which may result in system outages, reducing mean time to repair (MTTR) and increasing system availability.

Integration with Remedy Change Management will allow automated verification that a scheduled task was completed and will also highlight changes which were made without going through the change authorization process.

It is estimated that 80% of outages are due to a change and 80% of MTTR is trying to find out what changed. By looking at the changes for the affected asset, problem managers can typically recommend a fix to the problem over 80% of the time with a first fix rate of over 90%.

If you only look at authorized changes, however, you may be missing changes which were made outside of the process. Organizations which implement automated change auditing are usually alarmed to see how many changes are being made ‘under the radar’. The ability to track both authorized changes and detected changes – changes made but not necessarily authorized – is key functionality needed to reduce MTTR and increase overall system availability.

If problem managers can use the list of detected changes to recommend a fix 80% of the time and 90% of these recommendations result in a solution, this means we’ve reduce the time to diagnose the problem by 72%. Since the diagnosis phase represents 80% of the total MTTR, automated change management can reduce MTTR by 58%. At the same time, we’ve also reduced the amount of labor required to troubleshoot and resolve problems by a similar amount.

RaMP provides the following capabilities:

Automated Asset Management

— 100% data accuracy through the automated discovery of detailed device information

— Automatically track device location down to the rack unit

— Software license management

— Real-time data center auditing for IT asset accounting compliance (Sarbanes-Oxley, CFR-11)

— Automated change control to reduce MTTR and increase availability

— Web services API provides integration with other asset and change management systems

Real-Time Monitoring

— Power and environmental monitoring down to the device level

— Server monitoring to identify servers which should be retired, virtualized or consolidated

— Identify servers which are not using power management

Enhanced Capacity Planning

— More accurate capacity planning data helps to reduce stranded power and shutdown risks

About No Limits Software

No Limits Software is a leading provider of data center management solutions, including asset management, capacity planning, and power and environmental monitoring. No Limits Software’s patent-pending solution is unique in that it automates asset management to the rack unit. The RaMP solution eliminates the need for physical audits, dramatically reduces the time to find and repair equipment, improves system availability and improves data center energy efficiency by providing accurate capacity planning.

No Limits Software RaMP Solution Helps Resolve Problems More Quickly Using Automated Data Center Change Management

No Limits Software RaMP Solution Helps Resolve Problems More Quickly Using Automated Data Center Change Management











RaMP provides detailed device data, including configuration, power and sensor readings


St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 29, 2011

No Limits Software has extended the automated data center change management capabilities of their Rack Management Platform (RaMP) to allow data center managers to easily view all changes which may impact their critical assets. RaMP’s automated snapshots of asset configuration data allow data center managers to quickly find system changes which may result in system outages, thereby reducing mean time to repair (MTTR) and increasing system availability.

It is estimated that 80% of outages are due to a change and 80% of MTTR is trying to find out what changed. By looking at the changes for the affected asset, problem managers can typically recommend a fix to the problem over 80% of the time with a first fix rate of over 90%.

Let’s look at how RaMP could help in problem resolution. Suppose a server has lost connectivity with the network. The problem manager would bring up the change log for the affected server. Was the network cable moved to a new port? Was a new version of software installed that might impact connectivity? If no changes look like possible causes for the loss of connectivity, the problem manager can simply click a button to extend the list of changes to all devices to which the asset is associated. Now he can see changes to the router to which the server is connected to examine those changes for possible causes.

By automatically tracking all detected changes, RaMP can monitor both authorized changes and detected changes to reduce MTTR and increase overall system availability.

RaMP provides the following capabilities:

Automated Asset Management

— 100% data accuracy through the automated discovery of detailed device information

— Automatically track device location down to the rack unit

— Software license management

— Real-time data center auditing for IT asset accounting compliance (Sarbanes-Oxley, CFR-11)

— Automated change control to reduce MTTR and increase availability

Halogen Software Signs 100th New Customer of 2004 – Company Growth Rides on Incredible Demand for its Employee Performance Management Software

Halogen Software Signs 100th New Customer of 2004 – Company Growth Rides on Incredible Demand for its Employee Performance Management Software










Ottawa (PRWEB) December 10, 2004

December 9, 2004 –Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider of Web-based employee performance management (EPM) software, has now signed more than 100 new customers so far in 2004. That makes 2004 the strongest year yet for the Ottawa-based company, and makes Halogen one of the most successful companies in its market space.

The new customer wins already translate into 200% year-over-year growth for Halogen—well above the industry rate projected by sector analysts. For example, Gartner analyst James Holincheck’s recently published report on Employee Performance Management (EPM) predicts that “the EPM software market will demonstrate at least a 15 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2008.”1

“Halogen’s growth has been propelled by its award-winning Halogen eAppraisal product—and the dedicated team behind it,” said Paul Loucks, President of Halogen Software. “We’re often told that our solutions have the features customers need, yet are much simpler and more cost-effective to implement and use than those of our competitors. The Christiana Care win we announced last week was another public confirmation of the value that we offer over our competitors.”

Delaware-based Christiana Care Health System is one of the premiere health care providers in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region. It recently selected Halogen eAppraisal Healthcare over competitive product offerings to automate performance evaluations for its 9,500 employees.

“Signing 100 clients this year is an impressive achievement, especially given that a majority of enterprises have yet to move beyond paper-based workforce performance management,” said Lisa Rowan, program manager for HR management and staffing services at technology research firm IDC. “Halogen’s success underscores the opportunity for automating this time-consuming and laborious event into an ongoing function that can drive new processes and guide organizational culture.”

About Halogen Software

Halogen Software Inc. is a leading provider of employee performance management (EPM) solutions. Founded in 2001 as a subsidiary of a successful consulting company, Halogen offers powerful, easy-to-use, and affordable Web-based software that dramatically improves HR and line-manager productivity.

“We wanted to offer a solid, inexpensive, feature rich software package that would allow clubs to add functionality when they needed it,” said Scott Rodgers, President of Club Sentry. While the Member photo system was the first additional module the company offered, the billing module marks a milestone for the company. “By releasing the Billing module, we make ourselves more appealing to a wider variety of clubs, including the commercial health and fitness industry,” continued Mr. Rodgers, “Soon we will include POS, Inventory, Security and mail/email merge modules to enahance our offerings, but we will continue to keep the base package priced under $ 200.” Additional functionality is currently being developed including Point of Sale and Inventory tracking while the company’s EFT module is preparing for release. By offering new functionality in modules, clubs can purchase the features they need when they need it, without paying for ones they don’t use.

The company is based out of Northport, NY, but most of its sales are handled through their web site at: http://www.clubsentry.com/product_pr01.htm. “By putting our marketing and support efforts onto the Internet, we can offer a more automated, less expensive package for the club and gain a wider global audience,” said JD Williams, VP of Marketing “Our e-mail support further reduces support costs to the users, especially those in the UK and the Bahamas.”

Club Sentry is currently being used by commercial and residential health clubs, skate parks, and YMCA related after school and athletic programs. “One of our goals is to be a useful tool in a number of industries such as Daycare, Martial Arts and Dance classes, Churches, Country Clubs and other membership driven organizations,” said Mr. Williams, “We want to offer so many features, that any industry would be able to utilize Club Sentry. From simple member checkin to building access and ‘on account’ purchasing with biometric identification, POS and Inventory, EFT for monthly dues and Scheduling, Club Sentry will make sure you have what you need to run your club.”

Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association Adopts Crosstrainer Personal Fitness Management Software for Canada Wide Implementation in High Performance Programs.










(PRWEB) December 18, 2002

Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association Adopts Crosstrainer Personal Fitness Management Software for Canada Wide Implementation in High Performance Programs.

Partnership Ideal Match to Contribute to Increased Excellence of Canadian National Wrestling Team.

OTTAWA, CANADA, December 16, 2002 – Today the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association (CAWA) and Innovative Logic jointly announce a 2 year agreement to implement Crosstrainer Personal Fitness Management software throughout the entire wrestling organization. Multi user licenses of Crosstrainer will be provided to each of the thirteen national training centers and two high performance clubs that train national wrestlers. Also the National Program Director, National Office and several National Team athletes will receive Crosstrainer Personal Fitness Management software.

“We were very impressed with several features of the software right from the start,” said Greg Mathieu, Executive Director of the CAWA. “Our sport medicine and science team will be able to use the Wellness tracking and, of course, the Weigh-in profile for a weight based sport is very useful.”

Crosstrainer is a Canadian fitness and nutrition software product that is best known for its unique ability to set and track goals in combination with an athlete’s personal fitness and nutrition. The partnership will provide a platform to implement several upcoming features that are specifically of interest to organizations that would like to enhance their athlete excellence through increasing coach-to-athlete and coach-to-coach communication. Upcoming development will enable coaches to design training plans and share them with their athletes and each other. In this way National Coaches can design a training plan and an event schedule and share it with the athletes nationwide ensuring maximum efficiency and accuracy.

“We are very proud to have an organization as well respected as the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association as the first Canadian Sport Association to incorporate Crosstrainer,” says Marco Smits Director of Sales and Marketing of Innovative Logic. “Canadian wrestlers have been very successful over the last few years and we are excited to be part of the program and to contribute to increasing excellence of all wrestlers of the association”.

CAWA and Innovative Logic started their talks early this summer and have been working closely together to finalize the details of the partnership. Talks between other National Sport Organizations and Innovative Logic are also underway.

“We have been looking for an integrated program for quite some time. There is really nothing out there that compares,” added Mathieu. “After careful review we made our choice. There is a real demand, and Crosstrainer has risen to the challenge to fill that hole in the market and to support the needs of our sport organization. National sport bodies should find the Crosstrainer software a significant step up from legacy systems.”

“Innovative Logic looks forward to supporting Canada’s successful wrestling program in this critical two year period leading to the 2004 Olympic Games.” says Smits. “It is a great reward to help athletes pursuing and realizing podium performances at international competitions especially the Olympic Games”
