Microsoft acquires Opalis Software – Know how Opalis helps automate IT

Opalis IT Process Automation (ITPA) Software reduces operational costs and improves IT efficiency by delivering services faster, with fewer errors. This is achieved by replacing manual, resource-intensive and error prone activities with standardized, automated processes.

Opalis automates the end to end operational processes that traverse organizational boundaries – bridging IT silos, management tools, physical, and virtual environments.

Here is how Opalis helps you build a Dynamic Datacenter

As a part of the Microsoft System Center Server Management Suite, Opalis is uniquely positioned to enable the dynamic datacenter by orchestrating tasks between Operations Manager, Configuration Manager, Virtual Machine Manager, Data Protection Manager and 3rd party management tools.
