ServiceWatch, offered with a 30-day free trial, allows IT managers to map IT infrastructure within a SaaS platform.
Service-centric IT management specialist
Neebula Systems announced the launch of ServiceWatch, a cloud-based discovery
and dependency mapping platform that automates the service modeling process,
mapping all IT infrastructure components, including hardware and software,
providing IT administrators with a single-pane dashboard view into the health
of critical services.
The company is also offering a free 30-day
preview of the service, which targets businesses seeking a flexible and
scalable IT management platform.
Offered as a software as a service (SaaS)
platform, ServiceWatch was designed to encourage businesses to shift from
managing data center silos such as servers, network, storage and applications
to managing end-user business services like CRM, billing, tax payment and fund
transfer services, with the aim of avoiding downtime of critical business services
when implementing IT changes, as well as discover and model business services.
As part of the trial promotion, the company is also giving potential customers
the chance to win a Nexus 7 tablet.
"ServiceWatch empowers IT administrators by
allowing them to focus first on the business service, which is what their
end-user consumes and cares about most," Ariel Gordon, vice president of
products and co-founder of Neebula, said in prepared remarks. "No more
frustrating 'boil the ocean' activities to discover and manually create
relationships between IT assets that are immediately out-of-date. The
SaaS-delivered nature of ServiceWatch reinforces Neebula's ability to deliver
immediate and actionable results by removing the onus of up-front capital
expenditures, complex installations, services-assisted configurations, and the
headaches of managing yet another tool on-premise."
The company recently announced the addition
of two senior executives, Bob Johnson, who will serve as chief marketing
officer, and Ilan Shmargad, who will be vice president of business development.
Johnson previously worked as director of marketing and product management for
Cisco's SaaS/managed services organization, while Shmargad's background
includes serving as vice president of business development at Identify
Software, acquired by BMC.
"We're scaling to serve our growing clientele
of global enterprises, government and education customers in North America and
Europe," Yuval Cohen, CEO of Neebula, said in a press statement. "Our goal is
to free today's IT administrator from the drudgery of understanding details
about how specific physical and virtual assets, among the thousands of assets
deployed in a typical data center, combine to provide a business service while
empowering them to manage services better by helping to pinpoint issues before
they impact an end-user business service."
