By Ashok Bindra
Some news makers in Enterprise Solutions community in the past week have been Tufin Technologies, Ascert, Panduit, Amadeus, Global Communications Group and MegaPath (News - Alert). While Tufin introduced SecureApp to manage network connectivity, Ascert released VersaTest Automator version 1.6, and Panduit offered enterprise solutions to address security and innovation. In addition, a report commissioned by Amadeus focused on the benefits of open source software for enterprises and Global Communications Group and MegaPath Corp. join forces to provide voice, data, security and hosted IT services.
TMCnet contributor Shamila Janakiraman reported that security policy management solutions provider Tufin Technologies has readied a new product called SecureApp, which can manage the network connectivity of enterprise applications.
As per the report, Tufin SecureApp forms part of the Tufin Security Suite and it delivers a central repository for application connectivity data. Also, the data is presented in a way that network administrators and application owners find it easy to deploy, modify, de-commission, monitor up-time and troubleshoot application connectivity issues, wrote Janakiraman.
Similarly, TMCnet contributor Raju Shanbhag reported that Ascert has released VersaTest Automator version 1.6, which offers graphical reports on statistics collected during past performance test. According to Shanbhag’s report, VersaTest Automator provides the ease of VersaTest Simulator to more complicated enterprise environments. Apart from the flexibility to interoperate with multiple testing tools, these environments make use of various devices and applications that demand true end-to-end automated testing, wrote Shanbhag.
In another news, TMCnet contributing editor Susan J. Campbell reported that enterprise solutions are sure to offer efficiency, cost savings and operational performances when properly designed and executed throughout the organization. Campbell wrote that these solutions offer capabilities into business strategies that optimize the use of an open dialogue between partners and stakeholders.
The report also shows that with its partners, Panduit can offer a comprehensive and holistic way of unifying the infrastructure for the most optimal and convergence solutions. A case study clearly suggests that Panduit enterprise solutions are specifically designed with the business mind.
In a recently commissioned study by Amadeus IT group, the study shows that open source software is an advantageous substitute to proprietary systems in large transaction processes, wrote contributing writer Tabitha Naylor. The Amadeus study, wrote Naylor, indicates that the transaction processor and travel technology solutions provider has been transitioning to open source software.
The Amadeus study, which is named “Open for Business”, urges enterprises to adopt open source systems and then gives advice to companies that are thinking about replacing legacy or proprietary systems with open source systems. The report emphasizes the fact that it is important to have unified development instead of multiple teams, which can plant arguments and increase defects in implementation.
Lastly, TMCnet contributor Anamika Singh reported that MegaPath Corp. has entered into a partnership with Global Communications Group to provide voice, data, managed security and hosted IT services to its customers. This report brings a quote from Global Communications Group CEO Joel St. Germain, who said, “Over the past 10 years, Global Communications Group has focused on delivering the highest levels of customer satisfaction with unmatched technical expertise and professionalism.”
