Automatra Enterprise 1.0

Tab navigation

Automatra Essentials provides Microsoft® platform provisioning, configuration, and deployment automation elements that drive dynamic infrastructure. The Essentials is built to integrate seamlessly with the IBM Rational® Build Forge platform -- making sure your automation processes are repeatable, maintainable, and traceable.

Automatra Essentials can be deployed on the same system as IBM Rational Build Forge or on a Automaton Proxy server. After installation, you will have the capability to immediately start using Automatra out-of-the-box automatons providing detailed capabilities in managing development, quality assurance, and production IT and ISV environments.

Today, the Automatra platform provides automatons for Microsoft Core Server and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). These detailed and well tested automatons simplify the complex systems management aspects ranging from user management to IIS website construction and application deployment.

  • + Functional details

    The Automatra Essentials package provides the following out-of-the-box functions:

    1. Automation abstraction: the capability to design repeatable and complex tasks for specific systems management and deployment without writing a line of code.
    2. Automation summary: The bill of materials provides a high-level written account of the performed actions
    3. Security: Works seamlessly with all vendor-specific and industry standard security models Management Protocols: Uses vendor-specific and DMTF-standard management protocols
    4. Extends IBM Rational®: The Essentials package is built to work specifically in the IBM Rational Build Forge process automation engine

  • + Business problem

    Staff turnover which puts the maintenance of custom solutions at risk. Attrition certainly makes the maintenance of low level details tedious and increases risk to ongoing operations.

    Technical process variance where teams across the organization can implement different methods for automating the same task which causes uncertainty in day-to-day operations.

  • + Business opportunity

    There are multiple opportunities that arise from pitching this solution at customer since the solution expands out-of-the-box functionality that drives more widescale adoption of the IBM Rational® Toolset in the enterprise.

    Fundamentally, the solution gives the customer a wider picture of the Rational toolset's scope.  Doing so increases software and services revenue in technology stacks that are generally neglected.  Because of this, many customers that have heterogeneous environments; on the surface find it difficult to envision straight away returns. 

    1. Increase system and middleware capabilities for Rational Test Lab Manager functionality in RTLM.
    2. Achieve multiple technology stack deployments by pairing with RAFW

  • + Competitive advantage

    The Automatra Essentials package fuses technical excellence with operational agility. Our unique automaton decoupling methodology provides granular process automation flexibility comprehensively bundles automatons for operating environments, middleware systems, and client applications from construction to runtime.

    Whether it's differentiating factors between operational environments or variation in the wide array of constructs we automate, the end result is removal of the underlying complexity by surfacing the most used functions in a very intuitive way while surfacing access to lesser used functions.

    This solution can be enhanced by adding Automaton Bundles as your company sees fit. We are continuously building and managing our portfolio of automatons which means as new versions of vendor systems are released you benefit immediately.
