Tidal Software Announces New Product for IT Operations Intelligence

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - Tidal Software, a leading provider of application scheduling and performance management software, today announced the availability of Tidal™ Intelligent Reporting for Enterprise Scheduler. This product provides reliable insight into the functioning of the enterprise job scheduling environment. It includes many standard ready-to-run reports that provide metrics on production day status, job history, user activity, as well as audit reports for change management and compliance initiatives.

"Our scheduling operation is critical to the businesses we support," according to Kevin Kanuik, Assistant Vice President at JP Morgan Chase. "Tidal Intelligent Reporting delivers the up-to-date information we need on how scheduling is performing. Its automatic report generation will keep IT personnel informed more efficiently, freeing up time to be more proactive with the right information at our fingertips."

Tidal Intelligent Reporting reduces the complexity and time required for analysis and reporting on enterprise job scheduling by aggregating all the scheduler's metrics into a data warehouse for operational intelligence.
