NEC is licensing CA Configuration Automation r12.5 to enhance its systems management product suite, known as WebSAM in Japan and MasterScope outside of Japan.

The addition of CA Configuration Automation to NEC’s product suite will help customers to expedite their move to a virtualized, dynamic cloud computing infrastructure.

NEC selected CA Configuration Automation based on its ability help increase business agility, reduce cost, minimize IT compliance risks and improve service delivery. CA Configuration Automation will enable these benefits by providing application and system discovery and dependency mapping, as well as configuration monitoring and remediation, across a range of applications and distributed physical and virtual servers.

“The adaptable integration interfaces, extended capabilities and support of CA Configuration Automation were key to helping us develop practical, cost-effective solutions for customers’ cloud management challenges,” says Motoyasu Akatsu, VP and Executive GM, NEC Corporation.

Key features of CA Configuration Automation, a key part of the fast-growing, next-generation CA Service Automation portfolio, include granular configuration tracking and auditing; more than 1000 out-of-the-box application, service, compliance and system blueprints and policies; and the flexibility of using either agent or agent-less discovery methods.

NEC plans to first incorporate CA Configuration Automation into its “WebSAM DC Operations Package,” which enhances cloud and data center operations. This addition will provide the foundation for a powerful, flexible and valuable management infrastructure that supports IT operations with automation, visualization, and change and configuration to help deliver a higher level of service quality to customers.
