DRESDEN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Responding to increasing global demand for IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) solutions, Netuitive, a leading provider of predictive analytics for IT, and amasol AG, a leading IT service provider based in Munich, Germany, recently partnered on the development of an innovative ITOA solution for Amadeus, a leading technology and services hub for the global travel industry.
The ITOA solution enables Amadeus to better understand performance of its Altéa Departure Control (DCS) - Flight Management (aircraft weight and balance) system and will be one of the featured presentations at amasol's upcoming Customer Day on May 14-15 in Dresden, Germany.
With an emphasis on maximum service availability, Amadeus sought an IT analytics solution to monitor and enhance performance of its Altéa Departure Control system utilized by more than 100 airlines worldwide. It required an automated solution that could provide holistic visibility into critical application performance and the ability to alert only on IT and business anomalies.
The amasol Customer Day will feature a variety of customer presentations, case studies and workshops -- much of it focused on what Gartner is referring to as IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) that are starting to enable large enterprises to better understand the business impact of IT.
According to Gartner, "IT operations analytics tools enable CIOs and senior IT operations managers to monitor their business operational data and metrics. The tools are similar to a business intelligence platform that business unit managers use to drive business performance. IT operations analytics tools enable users to assess efficiency, optimize IT investments, correlate trends, and understand and maximize IT opportunities that support the business."(1)
Confirmed presentations and participants include amasol customers such as Deutsche Telekom, Robert Bosch and BASF, as well as roadmap presentations and demos from partners such as Compuware, CA, VMware, and IXIA. Other speakers and presenters include companies such Deutsche Telekom, Robert Bosch, BMW and BASF IT, and Dr. Thomas Mendel, noted industry analyst with Research in Action.
In his keynote address, Dr. Mendel will examine how data and information from various areas such as IT Infrastructure Management or Application Performance Management ITOA are increasingly using "big data" methods to enable a completely new IT Management approach that he calls IT Management 2.0.

"amasol is focused on linking ITOA with modern APM solutions to provide new levels of insight into business service performance that serves as the foundation for a variety of operations efficiency improvements," said Frank Jahn, board member sales of amasol AG. "With Netuitive's industry leading IT analytics, we believe the solution for Amadeus is one of the most innovative in the industry and we are proud to have it presented by Amadeus at amasol's Customer Day 2014."
"Like analytics for Big Data and business intelligence, advanced IT analytics are now gaining traction globally," said Nicola Sanna, CEO of Netuitive. "We are pleased to partner with amasol on a groundbreaking ITOA solution for Amadeus, and we continue to deliver new ITOA solutions specific to the monitoring and performance challenges in other industries such as financial services, insurance, and telecommunications."
