Novell has released Novell Operations Center 5.0, the a Business Service Management (BSM) solution delivering comprehensive management of public and private cloud services and a Configuration Management System (CMS) that automatically synchronizes with external data sources, helping customers to better manage highly complex environments and federated CMDBs. These extensive capabilities present a real-time, comprehensive view of business service health and performance across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

Novell Operations Center 5.0 now enables customers with the following capabilities:

*Automated Configuration Management: The CMS automatically synchronizes with external data sources to ensure data accuracy in real-time.

*Federated Content Management Database (CMDB): The CMDB helps customers to manage standard configurations and process compliance.

*Community Management: The "community" feature, a unique social interface, allows multiple users to update information and maintain accuracy and relevance.

*Novell Cloud Manager and Amazon EC2 integration: The ability to monitor, manage and measure public and private cloud deployments allows customers to measure service provider performance for a complete view, aligning technology to business objectives.

"When Novell entered the BSM space three years ago, the company invested in a set of technologies that led the market in defining what Business Service Management might mean in terms of linking business outcomes to IT service performance through a truly assimilative capability for modeling and analysis across multiple brand investments," says Dennis Drogseth, Vice President at Enterprise Management Associates. "Since that time, Novell has enriched and strengthened its BSM portfolio bringing its customers a more complete understanding of their IT infrastructure performance. With Novell Operations Center 5.0, Novell is extending its BSM integration to support cloud and active configuration (release) management requirements with higher levels of automation, visibility and control."

Novell Operations Center 5.0 fully integrates with Novell Cloud Manager, Novell ZENworks, Novell Sentinel, PlateSpin Recon, and NetIQ AppManager, giving customers seamless access to the technologies in the Novell and NetIQ portfolios.
