Leading IT Solutions Provider International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. (IIS) Inks Agreement to Resell Tidal's Enterprise Job Scheduler

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - February 11, 2009) - Tidal Software, a leading provider of application scheduling and performance management software, and International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. (IIS), a leading provider of mission critical and highly available infrastructure hardware and software solutions, today announced an alliance where by IIS can resell Tidal's datacenter automation solution for enterprise scheduling, Tidal Enterprise Scheduler.

IIS has already deployed a Tidal Enterprise Scheduler solution for a very large enterprise in the financial services and information sector seeking to optimize business processes in its HP environment. The Tidal scheduler has simplified the client's complex job scheduling by automating the jobs run during the ETL process, and by providing a single view that shows the relationships between jobs regardless of systems and applications involved.

The Tidal scheduler makes it faster and simpler for IT to load the data warehouse, and it reduces errors by flagging potential problems early. Not only can the client's IT department now provide users with reliable BI data more quickly than before, but also the process of doing so is much simpler for the IT staff itself.

An important factor for the client was an enterprise scheduling system that integrated with HP Software Management Solutions as well as HP's data warehouse and BI solutions. Tidal's cross-platform, cross-application solution fit the bill. The combination of IIS' systems and application expertise with HP systems and Tidal products can help HP-based datacenters increase IT efficiency and reduce risks.

"We needed to incorporate datacenter automation solutions that truly support HP solutions in order to help clients focus on aligning IT more closely with the business," said Tom Donofrio who is IIS' CTO and Founder. "Our clients are asking for automation solutions that are straightforward to deploy, easy-to-use, support heterogeneous environments, and most importantly, can unify and provide consolidated points of visibility and control over systems and processes. Tidal is an excellent choice for us and our clients."

IIS is known for its HP expertise -- IIS is an HP Data Center Elite Partner, HP Software Platinum Partner, and HP Solutions Elite Partner. In addition to other systems, IIS also maintains expertise in SAP and Oracle applications, as well as virtualized environments.

IIS focuses on the backbone of their customer's IT setups such as the creation of scalable HP server/storage/management solutions and the integrity and reliability of all four solutions. That specialized approach is intended to deliver highly experienced, innovative, and intelligent HP hardware, management, solutions consultants, and trainers to clients in the region.

"A clear way that enterprises can improve efficiency, and reduce costs is by deploying sophisticated, well-integrated automation solutions from leading companies," said Mike Anderson, who heads channel development for Tidal. "IIS can engage their expertise to integrate Tidal's high-value automation solutions into an IT environment to provide end-to-end visibility and control, giving customers exactly what they need today and well into the future."

Through this reseller agreement, Tidal Enterprise Scheduler is available to IIS customers today. The Tidal Enterprise Scheduler is a cross-platform, cross-application enterprise job scheduling solution used to automate complex sequences of processes that touch heterogeneous systems. Clients consistently cite enterprise coverage and ease-of-use as factors in selecting Tidal's job scheduler.
