RICHARDSON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Monolith Software, the leading provider of next generation, unified service assurance solutions, and its partner Eirteic today announced the first deployment of its AssureNow LTE service assurance solution. The AssureNow solution has been deployed at Manx Telecom to manage and monitor their entire network, unifying operations and workflows across all technologies, domains, and services.
As the leading communications solutions provider on the Isle of Man, Manx Telecom provides a wide range of fixed line, broadband, mobile and data centre services over multiple service platforms alongside its own IT operations environment. This makes front end service management a critical objective. In a shift towards a service-focus rather than a siloed approach, Manx Telecom needed a unified view of its infrastructure and services, a view that Monolith Software could provide at a lower total cost of ownership than they had achieved in the past.
"We need to rapidly deploy and monitor new services such as LTE," said Kevin Paige, CTO at Manx Telecom. "The AssureNow solution allows us to monitor and manage our products and services efficiently by providing a unified view of infrastructure and services which enables us to correlate service events across many different platforms. This supports us in providing a better level of service to our customers and we can quickly match resources to demand and quickly trouble-shoot issues. Monolith also provides Manx Telecom with an industry leading service management capability, providing a single, scalable and expandable management platform for our Service Operations team."
"We now have experience installing Monolith AssureNow in more than a dozen companies worldwide," said Patrick Buttimer, CEO of Eirteic. "In all cases the total cost of ownership has been significantly reduced and the time to deploy new services such as 4G LTE has been considerably improved."
For more information on Monolith AssureNow service assurance solutions, visit stand 36 at TM Forum Live! in Nice, France to see a demonstration by Monolith Software and Eirteic. They will showcase the AssureNow platform highlighting the ability to unify, simplify and transform service-oriented operations for new and existing services, improvements in customer experience, and the opportunity for immediate and long-term cost savings.

[slides] Policy in Hybrid Cloud By @DerekCollison | @CloudExpo #API #DevOps #Containers #Microservices
Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be arch...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

What’s New in the World of Application Analytics By @MikeAnand | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #API #APM #Microservices
Software is eating the world. The more it eats, the bigger the mountain of data and wealth of valuable insights to digest and act on. Forward facing customer-centric IT organizations, leaders and professionals are looking to answer questions like how much revenue was lost today from platinum users not converting because they experienced poor mobile app performance. This requires a single, real-time pane of glass for end-to-end analytics covering business, customer, and IT operational data.

Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry. Resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time.

[slides] Workloads and Public Cloud at @CloudExpo By @utollwi | @ProfitBricksUSA #DevOps #Containers #Microservices
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...

One of the hottest new terms in the world of enterprise computing is the microservice. Starting with the seminal 2014 article by James Lewis and Martin Fowler of ThoughtWorks, microservices have taken on a life of their own – and as with any other overhyped term, they have generated their fair share of confusion as well. Perhaps the best definition of microservices comes from Janakiram MSV, Principal at Janakiram & Associates. “Microservices are fine-grained units of execution. They are designe...

One of the charter responsibilities of DevOps (because it's a charter responsibility of ops) is measuring and monitoring applications once they're in production. That means both performance and availability. Which means a lot more than folks might initially think because generally speaking what you measure and monitor is a bit different depending on whether you're looking at performance or availability*.

In the last blog we started the conversation on our findings from @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015 as the industry came together to explore the impact of Cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) on business models as we know them. While often the focus of IoT are consumer services and the sometimes over-simplification of what constitutes an IoT company or service, one area there is no disputing is the significant advancement in the Industrial Internet (a term made popular by GE). Ongoing improvem...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
