Altosoft Introduces Business Service Management for Microsoft System Center and Opalis

Altosoft Extends Its Support for System Center and Opalis by Providing BSM Analytics to Seamlessly Link IT Operations Data With Business Processes

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  Altosoft, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and a leading provider of process-aware business intelligence solutions, today announced its Insight Dashboard for System Center. With this introduction Altosoft extends its suite of solutions for System Center and Opalis to provide a comprehensive Business Service Management (BSM) solution for users of Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) powerful suite of IT infrastructure and server management solutions.

"BSM tools can associate events from underlying IT infrastructure elements and IT operations availability and performance tools to provide a more holistic, business-oriented IT services view," said David Williams, research vice president for Gartner. "Through integration with performance-monitoring tools, they can associate an event with a broader service impact and enable IT operations personnel to proactively address a performance-based service degradation issue in-line with business priorities."

Altosoft's Insight Dashboard for System Center is built on Altosoft's process-aware business intelligence platform. The power of the Altosoft platform allows IT personnel to quickly and easily integrate IT operational data with underlying business process data to achieve deep insights into the impact and value of IT operations. This insight allows IT staff to fully understand the precise business impact of IT investments on a company's ability to meet its performance goals related to Service Level Agreement (SLA) obligations and the result of any deviation from these targets.

The Insight Dashboard for System Center joins Altosoft's existing Insight Dashboard for Opalis introduced in December following Microsoft's acquisition of Opalis. The latest product extends Altosoft's solution to include pre-built dashboards with access to a rich set of pre-defined key performance indicators (KPIs) utilizing data from the System Center Operations Manager's data warehouse and System Center Configuration Manager. Users can modify or extend these KPIs using any data from System Center or Opalis as well as any other data source without requiring any coding of any kind.

"The ability to combine IT operational data with real business data will be critical to the success of IT operations in the next decade," said Scott Opitz, CEO of Altosoft Corporation. "All areas of business, including IT must be able to demonstrate a clear ROI from their IT investments and be able to proactively demonstrate a direct business benefit. Our goal is to provide tools which empower IT professionals to achieve global visibility over their entire operation with a detailed understanding of how each system impacts the company's top and bottom lines."

"Altosoft's System Center solutions allow Microsoft's customers to realize even greater value from their investment in System Center," said Warren Talbot, director of product planning, Management and Services Division, Microsoft Corporation. "Altosoft's ability to quickly combine data from System Center, Opalis and other line of business data sources and make it available in an operational dashboard gives our customers great levels of visibility into their IT infrastructure and its value to the business's overall performance."

Based on the Microsoft .NET platform, Altosoft solutions leverage a variety of Microsoft technologies. Altosoft supports native dashboard and report development both independently using Altosoft's dashboard server or natively in the SharePoint Portal or System Center Operations Manager dashboard environments.
