Nastel Features New Partnerships, Client Wins At Gartner Symposium

Melville, Long Island-based Nastel Technologies used Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, a conference for CIOs and senior IT executives being held in Orlando this week, to feature recently announced partnerships and customer wins for its application performance monitoring and business transaction performance solutions.

The first deal involves a joint marketing partnership between Nastel and Coradiant, Inc., a provider of solutions used to manage, optimize and troubleshoot web applications.  According to a press release issued this week, the integration between Nastel AutoPilot® and Coradiant TrueSight® “will result in end user performance visibility, seamlessly integrated with AutoPilot’s deep-dive application and business transaction performance analysis.  This will provide Nastel and Coradiant customers with the visibility, predictive problem analysis and high transaction performance they require from their complex, multi-tier applications.”

Nastel also recently announced a technology partnership agreement with Kratos Networks, a provider of network monitoring and management solutions.  By integrating Nastel’s AutoPilot® M6 technology with Kratos’ NeuralStar® and dopplerVUE® network event management products, the two companies aim to provide IT managers with a real-time, end-to-end view of the performance and availability of all network, application, server, services and business transactions in dynamic, customizable dashboards.  According to a press release issued last week, IT managers can use the combined solutions to:

  • troubleshoot and isolate the root cause of problems between the network, applications and servers;
  • predict potential IT failures and latency problems and take proactive action to avoid them;
  • filter alerts and warnings across network and application domains; and
  • automatically resolve many IT issues without human involvement.

Finally, Nastel announced that its AutoPilot® software solution has been selected by SKY® Mexico (Innova) to monitor its Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite television service.  According to a recently published case study, SKY needed an effective business transaction management system enabling end-to-end visibility of their infrastructure and business applications including: enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), billing, interactive voice response (IVR), provisioning and service level agreement (SLA) compliance.  At a Gartner Symposium breakout session today (Tuesday, Oct. 19) at 2:30 p.m., attendees can learn how Sky utilized Nastel AutoPilot for application performance monitoring and business transaction performance to improve the quality of service offered to its customers.

Calling All IBM Business Partners on Long Island

By my count there are more than a dozen IBM Premier or Advanced Business Partners based on Long Island.  Some of them, like VAI, Future Tech Enterprise, and Nastel Technologies do a very good job with their public relations efforts and participate in social media activities like Twitter and blogging.  Companies like Vicom Computer Services and Maximum Computer Systems seem to be dipping their toes in the social media waters, but they could be doing more to engage with their clients and potential clients.

However, it would great if we knew more about companies such as The Ergonomic Group, Salmon LLC, ENI Systems, Software Engineering of America (SEA), ABC Services, KMR Systems, Progressive Technology Group and Computer Equipment Services.  I’m sure they are doing great work.  They just need to toot their own horns more and join in the conversations taking place in various social media networks.

If you work for or represent any of the IBM Business Partners mentioned here, please post a comment or send a note to michael[at]techsources[dot]com.  I would love to help spread the word about your accomplishments.
