1901 Group Selects iWave Software for Accelerating Customer Transition to Cloud-Based Network Management and Security Monitoring Services

Orchestration Platform Will Reduce Third Party Administration and Integration Costs, Accelerate Service Transition and Improve Incident Response Times Through Seamless Workflow Integration

FRISCO, TX--(Marketwire - December 16, 2010) - iWave Software, the leading independent provider of Data Center Orchestration, Automation and Cloud Management software, today announced 1901 Group's selection of iWave Orchestrator to support its cloud-based services for infrastructure, application and security management. Orchestrator will also serve as a service desk integration hub for synchronizing incidents and change requests with 1901 Group's customers.

iWave Orchestrator provides 1901 Group and other Managed Service Providers (MSPs) a proven, enterprise orchestration platform and management fabric for automating cloud service management functions including server lifecycle management, disaster recovery , workload management (elasticity) and fault remediation. Masking complex workflows and linking application-based process automation, iWave Orchestrator supports heterogeneous vendor environments and offers a layer of abstraction between user interaction and infrastructure components. This superior architecture avoids product lock over time and allows organizations to leave proven service management workflows untouched when upgrading the underlying infrastructure or service interface.

"1901 Group joins the list of leading Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Global 1000 companies using iWave Orchestrator to lower the cost and resources required to deliver public and private clouds to their internal and external customers," said Ron Smith, Vice President of Marketing & Strategic Alliances. "iWave Orchestrator's self-service portal, prebuilt workflows and out-of-the-box application adapters offer MSPs like 1901 Group a complete solution to delivering service management within the cloud. In the market where time to market and ongoing management costs are cloud differentiators, iWave offers an alternative to purchasing expensive 'turnkey' cloud solutions by allowing organizations to leverage their existing infrastructure, management tools and staff expertise." 

1901 Group is a next generation IT MSP employing a disciplined ITIL service delivery model with industry leading technologies to reduce IT costs and optimize overall performance. The approach is so unique they have a patent pending on key elements. Sonu Sing, CEO and President of 1901 Group, describes the 1901 Group model akin to an IT factory: "US businesses have been employing lean six principles and practices for a century in other parts of the enterprise, it is now time for IT to glean the outsized improvements in productivity that these methods yield and iWave is an ideal element of this evolution."

"As an integral part of our customers' IT service organization, we require seamless integration across every process within the ITSM workflow," said Darwin Herdman, CTO for 1901 Group. "iWave provides the framework to maintain the scalability and adaptability of 1901 Group's service portfolio. iWave Orchestrator offered a cost effective and scalable solution for availability, supportability and usability, which in turn will allow us to further enhance our customer experience with enterprise and cloud-based infrastructure, application and security services."
