IT Service Management centre of excellence will deploy CA Lisa Release Automation to ‘automate the automation’.
Utrecht, November 14, 2013 - CA Technologies, the supplier of IT management solutions, and Logicalis SMC, part of the Logicalis Group, the British IT service provider, have entered into a partnership. Logicalis SMC will be a Premier Partner for the supply, support and implementation of the CA Lisa continuous application delivery portfolio. The partnership is part of the CA Global Partner Programme, which is aimed primarily at partners with expertise in specific fields.
CA Lisa Release Automation
IT Service Management (ITSM) focuses on process-driven IT management. Logicalis SMC has specialised in ITSM and Service Optimisation for fifteen years. Its professionals help large IT departments to improve their performance and hence the overall IT service. That is achieved in part through perfect harmonisation of the processes and tools used.
CA Lisa Release Automation enables applications to be implemented rapidly. Software changes that have traditionally taken weeks to implement can be implemented in just a few hours thanks to CA Lisa’s automated process. That means newly developed applications can be put into production much faster. CA Lisa Release Automation also reduces pressure on IT organisations while raising the quality of deployments. It allows better governance of application changes and enables ‘automation of the automation’.
Eugene Wolf, CEO of Logicalis SMC, says: “The business can only be offered fast and faultless service, such as the rollout of new software updates, if processes are automated as fully as possible. In that sense CA Lisa Release Automation fits in well with our ambition of enabling IT departments to perform better with IT4IT. By adopting it we are making continuous application delivery part of an integrated ITSM approach.”
“Partners are vitally important to us in achieving our growth objectives as a software vendor,” says Roger Veldpaus, Partner Director at CA Technologies in the Netherlands. “Successful implementations combine good software with the right knowledge and expertise. Logicalis SMC strengthens our proposition by contributing its expertise and experience.”
