Evolven Software Inc., the pioneer of Granular Configuration Automation solutions, today announced their support for IBM WebSphere Application Server.
Evolven will enable customers to achieve greater visibility into the granular configuration information of IBM WebSphere Application Server’s application infrastructure which can affect the availability and performance of IT environments where IBM WebSphere Application Server is running.
IBM WebSphere Application Server provides services (database connectivity, threading, workload management, and so forth) that can be used by business applications. IBM WebSphere Application Server provides the availability and security that businesses depend on, allowing developers to build, deploy and manage robust, agile reusable, and innovative SOA business applications and services of all types while reducing application infrastructure costs. IBM WebSphere Application Server enhances development productivity with integrated tooling and unique backwards compatibility features that eliminate recoding with comprehensive support of open standards and programming models, including: OSGi, CEA, JPA, SAML, SCA, SDO, SIP, Web 2.0, and XML.
Availability and performance of IBM WebSphere Application Server in the IT environment is critical for providing effective business service. With a unique ability to track the configuration parameters and detect changes and differences, no matter how minute, for IBM WebSphere Application Server, Evolven Comparison allows IT professionals to:
Reduce Production Outage Risk: Increase stability of releases and detect unauthorized changes to prevent outages and high impact incidents
Minimize System Downtime: Quickly pinpoint to an incident's root-cause and cut time to repair
Enhance Security & Compliance: Leverage granular visibility and audit-trail to meet demanding security and compliance requirements
The configuration parameters of IBM WebSphere Application Server are critical for providing effective business service. Accurately managing the configuration of IBM WebSphere Application Server is not an easy task considering the complexity of IBM WebSphere Application Server and the numerous configuration parameters involved with IBM WebSphere Application Server. IBM WebSphere Application Server includes thousands of different configuration parameters in which the misconfiguration or disregard of a single configuration setting can cause an incident with major impact on the entire IT environment and business service.
Evolven Comparison discovers granular configuration information for IBM WebSphere Application Server. Evolven Comparison's unique Comparison Engine™ includes a set of technologies that deliver clear, definitive configuration information related to IBM WebSphere Application Server, highlighting the critical root cause and its impact, allowing IT professionals to focus on what matters most.
Today’s modern business systems include interdependent layers of applications and infrastructure, and focusing on only one configuration or a small set leaves room for error, and ignores critical context and interdependencies. The Evolven Granular Configuration Automation solution, Evolven Comparison, focuses on the entire environment in order to ensure a stable business service that meets agreed to service levels.
Evolven Comparison analyzes and classifies configuration changes and differences, by their impact, for IBM WebSphere Application Server. Then Evolven Comparison prioritizes and highlights the changes and differences discovered in IBM WebSphere Application Server based on criticality, visually presenting the comparison results for fast and easy analysis. Insignificant changes and differences are ignored. Evolven Comparison even makes effective comparisons for IBM WebSphere Application Server Configurations of inherently different environments (e.g. test vs. production).
