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."
