Syslink Xandria was relaunched as Avantra, the next generation AIOps platform that eliminates the need for repetitive SAP operations and moves users towards the self-healing enterprise.

To lead this strategic change and to accelerate market adoption, Avantra has appointed a new CEO, John Appleby, who steps up from his role as the company’s chief revenue officer.

A recent study by 451 Research found that half of IT decision-makers describe the level of automation in their environments as mostly manual. Avantra’s platform solves this issue for on-premise, cloud, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) deployments with its full-stack automation, operational transparency, and actionable insights.

The solution also provides early detection of performance, compliance and health issues, and facilitates a faster resolution. Transforming the customer journey from a reactive to proactive approach empowers businesses to focus on digital transformation by reducing manual operations.

Upon his appointment, John Appleby, who was the Global Head of DDM/HANA COE at SAP and member of the SAP Mentors group, comments, “Today marks the next stage in the evolution of our platform. We launched 20 years ago, and our aim then was to reduce the overhead of SAP operations and improve visibility into SAP landscapes.”

“With digital transformation driving an increasing reliance on core systems, we want to ensure our customers stay ahead of the curve. Our move to build an AIOps platform allows them to become proactive and focus their resources on strategic innovation whilst ensuring security and compliance.”

Avantra provides clients with insight into their IT health and enables them to manage some of the most challenging workloads. The platform automatically monitors millions of data points and processes daily. Avantra is used by some of the world’s largest enterprises in the automotive, manufacturing, retail industries, and managed services providers.
