Tideway, a London-based provider of IT automation software, today announced the availability of Tideway Foundation 7.1. The latest version of Tideway’s application dependency mapping (ADM) solution allows users to identify what has changed in their IT environment and why, view authorized, approved and expected changes, and carve out slices of data for more individualized and powerful reporting.
From the press release:
“Developed in collaboration with Tideway’s customer advisory board, Foundation 7.1’s new change control capabilities enable users to define a baseline “approved” state for their environment and compare all observed changes to the approved and expected states of that environment. This sophisticated change intelligence goes beyond merely providing data and offers users suggestions about what action should be taken to reconcile and explain discrepancies between the approved environment and the “as is” state captured by Foundation. Users can delve deeper into Foundation data to troubleshoot and determine the authorization status of specific lifecycle changes.”
“Foundation 7.1 also offers enhanced capabilities for managing virtual environments and controlling virtual machine (VM) sprawl. The cross-platform and vendor-agnostic solution allows users to monitor the appearance, disappearance and migration of virtual hosts and reconcile those changes directly with their authorization status to help eliminate unnecessary outages and excessive license charges.”
