NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire - May 15, 2012) - Nolio -- the leading provider of application release automation -- today announced a new integration with ServiceNow, a leading provider of cloud-based services to automate enterprise IT operations. The integrated offering helps ServiceNow customers achieve continuous application deployment and reduce application release windows from hours or days down to minutes. Nolio and ServiceNow are working together to mitigate change risk and to minimize application service downtime.
ServiceNow helps transform enterprise IT by automating and standardizing business processes and consolidating IT across the global enterprise. The ServiceNow configuration management database (CMDB) helps IT departments implement enterprise change management by tracking configuration item relationships, automatically defining IT services and automating IT processes.
Nolio ASAP reduces time-to-market and makes enterprise operations agile and ready for the cloud. Nolio ASAP provides release operations for all application resources (e.g. servers, configurations, data) as a unified system, providing greater flexibility, control, and visibility from an application perspective.
A leading global institutional asset management firm, with more than $500 billion in client assets under management, is already using the integration of ServiceNow and Nolio ASAP to automate application releases and optimize IT operations. The integration between ServiceNow software development lifecycle functionality and Nolio enables this customer's IT team to cut release time down to minutes and execute the release process from within the ServiceNow platform, enabling the customer to become more agile, integrate across their IT organization, and achieve cost efficiencies.
IT operations staff can use the ServiceNow console integrated with Nolio ASAP to implement continuous and automated application deployment, enforce time windows for process execution, and tie development processes to configuration items in the CMDB. When the change management process begins, ServiceNow cloud services provide the necessary information to Nolio ASAP, which automatically executes the change, configuration and release operations. Nolio ASAP provides status information to the ServiceNow CMDB in real-time so the IT user has extensive, up-to-date visibility into the application release process.
Benefits of the integrated offering include:
- Advanced analytics, reports and dashboards showing how well services are performing, how they are being used and how much time and money is spent supporting them
- Tight automation of configuration management, change management and release operations
- Full application lifecycle support including development, test/QA, staging and production
- Support for continuous application deployment practices to meet the agility requirements of cloud services
- Application-centric orchestration of cloud infrastructure provisioning
- Support for physical, virtual and cloud environments -- together in a single system of record
