Cendura Selected by Amica to Automate Application Configuration Management

Cohesion's Comprehensive and Always Accurate CMDB Enables Operations Visibility, Control and Change Management

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2005 -- Cendura (, a leader in automated IT services configuration management solutions for enterprises today announced that Amica, the oldest mutual insurer of automobiles in the nation, has selected Cendura's Cohesion software to automate the configuration management tasks needed to discover a service's topology and all software, quickly troubleshoot and isolate problems, detect changes before they impact service levels and then remediate changes for their business-critical applications.

"An application's settings and configuration will determine its performance, availability and security," says David Smith, Client/Server Infrastructure Manager, Amica. "To keep our business-critical systems highly available, we needed a systematic way to discover, track and manage all configuration changes not only for our commercial applications, but for our custom applications too. With accurate and deep information, the CMDB can be a source of IT business intelligence for tracking software components, identifying changes and enforcing best practices."

Cohesion automates the configuration lifecycle processes required for managing complex application infrastructures. Cohesion can be used to inventory servers, operating systems, components, and their respective configuration states; track and validate changes of multi-tier software across platforms and components; enforce policy compliance at the configuration level with rules and best practices; and to optimize application configuration states by determining what changed and streamlining repair.
