Cisco TES EMA Impact Brief Terma Software Labs

Cisco Systems and Terma Software Labs to Join Forces for More SLA-Aware Workload Processing

Exerpt from the Impact Brief: "On November 1, 2011, Cisco Systems (Cisco) and Terma Software Labs (Terma) announced a reseller agreement that integrates Cisco’s Tidal Enterprise Scheduler (TES) and Terma’s Predictive Analytics and Historical Analytics modules. This integration enables TES to be fully SLA-aware and to leverage historical analytics to predict workload performance and achieve true resource optimization.

  • Without the ability to see WLA jobs within their overall SLA context, the enterprise has to employ an inefficient break-fix approach.

  • To realize these capabilities of cloud-bursting and cloud-on-demand, the WLA solution has to be able to provide workload performance information.

This ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES (EMA™) impact brief examines the strategic importance of this collaboration for the Workload Automation (WLA) marketplace, as well as the impact of WLA-analytics on the broader IT Service Management arena."
