Cast Iron Systems - Integration and Application Router Appliance

www.castironsys.com Simple Integration for On Demand and Enterprise Environments: Cast Iron Systems built the Application Router from the ground up, tightly coupling software and hardware design. Instead of installing multiple pieces of software, worrying about compatibility issues, and tracking hardware requirements, you can just connect a network cable to the Application Router, and begin designing your integration solution. The Application Router does not require any additional hardware or software. It's that simple.

First Class Management

With the Application Router, you have visibility into all aspects of your integration project. A web-based management console allows you to remotely monitor and analyze data, system, and hardware status. If datatypes don't match, a network connection is lost, or a hard drive stops working, you'll know.

Unlimited Scalability

You are not limited by software or hardware incompatibilities, cumbersome installations, or deployment complications. There is no limit to the number of Application Routers you can add to your network. The Application Router provides one point of management and design tools that make it simple to reuse and deploy existing integration projects to additional Application Routers.

Cost Effectiveness

You do not have to deal with multiple vendors to make separate software and hardware purchases. With its remote management capabilities, the Application Router does not require a local IT staff for remote routers. At a fraction of the cost of traditional integration solutions, the Application Router provides a positive return on investment in as little as four months.

Kronos - Workforce Management

www.kronos.com Kronos is the most trusted name in workforce management. Organizations turn to Kronos for help managing every phase of the employee relationship including staffing, developing, deploying, tracking, and rewarding the workforce. The end result is reduced costs, increased productivity, better decision-making, improved employee satisfaction, and alignment with organizational objectives.

Unlike traditional HRMS vendors who primarily deliver value to HR and payroll managers, or niche workforce management vendors who cater to specific groups of employees, Kronos delivers value to the entire workforce. By managing salaried, hourly, remote, mobile, and contingent workers through one comprehensive system, everyone from the CEO to the frontline manager can make better decisions and work more effectively.

Addressing a wider range of payment and deployment preferences, Kronos announced Kronos Subscription, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) alternative for its Workforce Central® suite. Now all organizations can reap the benefits of the world's most widely adopted suite of workforce management applications, available on a perpetual license or subscription basis and deployable on site or hosted off-premises.

Kronos Subscription allows Kronos to attract organizations that we have not historically targeted — those with a pre-determined subscription pricing preference. Software payment and deployment options are broadening and some organizations now prefer an off-premises, fully managed subscription pricing alternative. As the leader in workforce management, we are committed to providing customers with an array of payment and deployment options to meet their individual needs. Driving this commitment is our unwavering focus on solving customers' workforce-related business problems.

Addressing market needs with unparalleled flexibility

Software-as-a-Service — where customers rent rather than purchase software licenses — is gaining interest for enterprise applications, particularly among small- and mid-size organizations. While this alternative is gaining interest, there will continue to be strong customer demand for on-site licensed software applications. In response to these market dynamics, Kronos now provides a range of alternatives, offering solutions on both a perpetual license basis and a subscription basis. Customers have the flexibility to choose deployment on site or hosted off-premises. Kronos' procurement alternatives are equally flexible, with options to license or lease the applications, or subscribe to a hosted solution.

Whether our customers choose to apply Kronos solutions on an enterprise scale, or leverage them as point solutions to address key business objectives, they all use Kronos to improve the performance of their people and their business.

We became the most trusted name in workforce management by delivering value through our time-tested and people-proven service approach to 20 million people within some of the world's most recognized organizations.

Globix - Connectivity, Hosting and Application Infrastructure Mgt

www.globix.com A wide range of services in connectivity, hosting and applications management. Here are examples in the applications category:

Packaged Application Management
Business applications that are deployed today typically consist of five to ten distinct, off-the-shelf packaged applications (web servers, database, application server, messaging, security, reporting, etc.). These are assembled and configured to operate as a seamless whole. Ensuring this seamless-ness in a multi-product, multi-vendor, multi-release environment is no small task. Globix can take on the implementation, configuration, management, maintenance and optimization of some or all of your third-party package applications. This includes troubleshooting and resolving issues, applying patches and minor upgrades, consulting on new features and functions and working with the development team to coordinate implementation and full-scale upgrades.

Database Administration
The database typically serves as the core to any business application. The manner in which it is managed, administered and optimized will have a significant impact on the experience of the user and the business impact of the application. Globix can provide technical support for the database system, including identifying and resolving configuration issues, optimizing the database performance and ensuring that the Database Management System (DBMS) has appropriate server resources. This can include monitoring and providing technical support for data feeds in and out of the application, reviewing log files, managing errors and exceptions, restoring services and providing technical support for improving or optimizing processes.

Custom Code Management
To complement off-the-shelf packaged application functionality, today's business applications are customized to a company's specific needs through the use of custom code, scripts and routines written in a variety of languages and managed with a variety of version control software. Globix can provide reactive problem management and break-fix services for custom code and can proactively enhance or improve the custom software components of the application, adding or removing its features or functionality. Globix can also serve as the point of integration for all application changes, receiving application components from a variety of stakeholders, enforcing standards and shepherding changes from an integration environment through testing, staging and production.

Systems Administration
A business application is only as healthy as the systems it runs upon. Globix can provide systems administration, technical support, tuning, and problem management and resolution for servers and operating systems. This includes applying patches and upgrades, hardening servers, managing server resources (CPU, disk space, etc.), managing processes, modifying file permissions and account management, etc. Globix will provide systems administration for Globix-owned, Globix-hosted servers or for servers owned and hosted by clients and other third-party host facilities.

Content Integration
The Internet has become the primary means by which some companies interact with new and existing customers, sell products and services, work with partners, inform employees, create communities and promote brand. Content is King in this new communications medium. Globix will support the integration of application and website content (images, charts, text, media, documents, etc.) from the post-content-creation stage through and including the final push to production. Globix is adept at using automated content management systems as well as manually intensive or client-proprietary approaches. Content integration includes consulting on content distribution techniques and workflow support (publish/test/stage/production).

The health of today's business applications cannot be determined by a single-faceted approach to monitoring. As a result, Globix provides a wide variety of application monitoring solutions. Globix's functional monitoring entails creating and automating a set of functional scripts (or synthetic transactions) that are run against the production application on a regular basis. Globix's application monitoring consists of installing and monitoring software agents that monitor the state and the health of specific application packages (e.g. database, application server, web server, etc.). Globix's system monitoring entails installing and monitoring software agents that monitor a wide variety of server and server resource conditions such as availability/unavailability, server resources (CPU, Disk), operating system variables, health of processes running on servers, system log files, etc.

Performance/Scalability Management
The performance of today's business applications is determined and affected by a multitude of components, systems, variables, thresholds, handoffs, potential bottlenecks and potential single points of failure. The performance challenge is heightened in cases where the business application is undergoing changes or needs to respond to scalability requirements. Globix will take both general and specific approaches to measuring, protecting and improving the performance of an application and the application's environment. Services include performance monitoring, performance testing and discreet performance improvement initiatives.

Digital Harbor - The Composite Applications Company

www.digitalharbor.com Digital Harbor, The Composite Applications Company, got its start in the U.S. Defense Intelligence Community and has spent over $35M on R&D since 1997. Like many mainstream commercial organizations, the challenge for the U.S. intelligence community was that the number of applications and the raw amount of information was increasing geometrically, while budgets were only increasing incrementally. As the number and complexity of applications and information repositories grew, it was no longer possible to integrate them using traditional "static" approaches.

A better solution was to connect applications and people at run-time by giving end-users the ability to fuse information in their context dynamically. Digital Harbor's PiiETM platform was developed to provide major intelligence agencies and now, commercial enterprises, with a superior information integration solution and a unique approach to better information management by extending existing applications and data sources into dynamic Composite Applications.

Since Digital Harbor emerged from the US Defense Intelligence community; the US federal government continues to be a significant customer particularly in Intelligence, Department of Defense, and Homeland Security. Digital Harbor also works with civilian and state agencies that similarly look for ways to capture more value from their growing amounts data by combining it across systems. Mainstream organizations in Financial Services, Utilities, Manufacturing and Healthcare all have the same information fusion issues found in the government, where there are multiple stovepipes of data and application functionality that must be combined to provide users with the whole picture and give them the ability to act upon it. We are an IBM Business Partner.

Digital Harbor's vision is that Composite Applications will become the dominant paradigm for run-your-business solutions, as enterprises seek to leverage their existing information assets by connecting them to one another and by taking static, web-enabled applications and turning them into dynamic, network-centric applications.

Applications, in essence, must become smarter in order to enable people to make better decisions. That is, applications should capitalize on the intelligence that is embedded in the network of relationships between pieces of information and the functionality that exists in different systems. In pursuit of that vision, Digital Harbor delivers enterprises a holistic solution that improves the speed and quality of the information that flows through the organization by more seamlessly tying together the data, applications, and people that use them through a fully composite solution. The end-game: give enterprises more value from their IT assets by contextualizing information so applications more closely match the way people think and act.

rPAth - Software as a Service Appliances

www.rpath.com rPath provides rBuilder and rPath Linux, the first platform for creating and maintaining software appliances. Software appliances bring the simplicity and value of Software as a Service (SaaS) to on-premise application deployments.

By leveraging our deep expertise in Linux and related open source technology, application developers can take control of the customer experience and migrate to a high value, software subscription model. rPath was founded in 2005 by Erik Troan, former VP of Engineering at Red Hat, and Billy Marshall, former VP of North America Sales at Red Hat. The company was commercially launched in January 2006 with corporate headquarters located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The Problem
The proliferation of software packages (both infrastructure and applications), hardware components, and unique customer requirements has created an impossibly complex integration problem for application providers. Conflicting maintenance streams, release schedules, licensing terms, and service conditions create customer service headaches and unacceptable engineering expenses. We call this problem the “Matrix of Pain.”

The Solution
The license freedom provided by open source infrastructure offers application providers the historic opportunity to deliver a complete solution to their customers – freeing their application from the “Matrix of Pain”. Using the rBuilder platform, developers can wrap their application with rPath Linux and related open source components in a tightly integrated, high performing manner. The resulting software appliance includes an installer and a maintenance mechanism that simplifies deployment and management to literally a few clicks of a mouse. Customers get application benefit without software hassles, the hallmark of Software as a Service (SaaS).
