  • (1888PressRelease) June 17, 2011 - Evolven, the supplier of the breakthrough change and configuration analytics solution for the modern data center and cloud, today announced that the company's configuration management solution was commended in a new Forrester Research report that focused on improving Infrastructure and Operations Change Management and Incident Processes.

    "Evolven analyzes change impact through application dependency discovery, detects the rogue ones, and proposes an actionable dashboard for remediation," writes Jean-Pierre Garbani, VP, the primary author of this Forrester Research report.

    The report, entitled 'I&O Execs: It's Time to Rediscover BSM', focuses on the new BSM point tools that can contribute to improving I&O's change management and incident processes. The report describes how a new breed of solutions is appearing that will prove useful in helping IT operations professionals achieve their BSM goals, noting that "No one solution encompasses all that BSM embodies today, but several point products exemplify the original BSM concept."

    The report reflects on how the original business service management (BSM) concept was founded on the capability to map business services to infrastructure components. However, the foundational technology of application mapping discovery and the configuration management database (CMDB) or configuration management system (CMS) has not yet fulfilled all of its promises, affecting some key management processes such as incident management as well as change and configuration management.

    "We are very excited to be recognized as part of this new breed of solutions that will help IT operations professionals achieve their BSM goals," says Sasha Gilenson, CEO of Evolven, "The Evolven Configuration Analytics solution redefines the Change Management space with powerful analytics that delivers actionable information. With Evolven, we enhance the stability and performance of IT, providing immediate insight into changes, building a firm bridge between the end user and IT operations."

    Evolven was interviewed for this report, where the effectiveness of the Evolven solution was noted as: "Evolven Software for a change control solution discovers all changes in real time.
