THE LEADER IN WORKLOAD ANALYTICS IS INCLUDING A FREE LICENSE OF JAWS WORKLOAD ANALYTICS FOR A LIMITED TIME — February 10, 2015

Terma Software today announced a new offering for
corporations who use CA7, AutoSys, or Tidal workload automation products. 
As the leader in Workload Analytics, Terma has recognized over the past several
years the growing need for workload optimization across scheduling
environments.  Given Terma’s extensive expertise in the space, it is well
positioned to provide services that will address the challenges that
corporations face who need to update, modernize and improve performance in
their workload environments.

Jim Anderson, Terma’s Director of Product Strategy comments, “Legacy
scheduling products present a special challenge.  IT processing problems can be difficult to manage or even identify
because the schedulers themselves are not sufficient on their own to address
today’s growing complexity.  Constant changes, unpredictable events, and
dynamic demands by end users are all happening at an unprecedented rate. It's
essential that IT operations and management engage the right expertise to
optimize operations and handle the complexity and pace of change.  In
order to assist our customers with this reality, we have grown our organization
to include an exceptional team of both technical and business workload
experts.”

Anderson
continues, “All too often we have seen that problems are often not detected
until they have grown out of control. If these issues are not resolved quickly
the result can be downtime, which can be crippling to any organization. 
Our team of experts, along with our flagship product, JAWS, can assist in
assuring that corporations have the knowledge essential to keep their systems
up and running reliably and efficiently.” 

In order to promote the
new offering, Terma is including with any optimization engagement a free
license of JAWS Workload Analytics product through the 1st quarter
of 2015.  “Since JAWS will be an integral part of our optimization
services, it makes sense to provide our customers with access to the product
after our services are completed so that they will have the ability to maintain
the level of performance and analytics that we will provide for them during the
engagement,” Anderson says.

Shane Hade, CEO of Terma adds, “We invite
corporations across all industries to take advantage of our extensive expertise
in workload analytics and look forward to helping customers reach a new level
of visibility, performance and maturity in their mission-critical workload
operations.”

THE CREATORS OF JAWS™ FOR WORKLOAD ANALYTICS CITES CRITICAL NEED FOR ITOA AS CONTRIBUTING TO GROWTH — January 6, 2015

Boulder, CO, January 6, 2014

Terma Software announces today record growth in fiscal 2014, resulting in the highest revenue year in the company’s history. 2014 was a milestone year for Terma which included substantial growth in the business, release of a new companion product to Terma’s flagship product, JAWS, and the appointment of a new CEO, Shane Hade. In October, Terma released TermaINSIGHT, which provides visibility into the Cisco Tidal and CA7 workload environments though an easy-to-use web-based interface (with support for CA’s AutoSys product coming by mid-2015.) Terma’s real-time and predictive analytics offerings provide unparalleled insight into the workload processes for every enterprise seeking to gain a strong position in the IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) maturity model.

In January, the Terma Board of Directors appointed a new CEO, Shane Hade. Subsequent to his arrival, Hade has redoubled efforts around ensuring and extending value to the current customer base, and has built out his executive team with additional experienced leaders with strong, execution focused, track records. Hade believes that the cornerstone of Terma’s success this year was due in part to the fact that IT operations decision makers realize that they must take a more proactive approach to service management as technology becomes increasingly complex.

Hade cites analysts such as Gartner and other industry experts who have shown their enthusiasm for the technology, saying, “IT budgets fell sharply according to Gartner over the past few years and are currently only at 2005 levels. That means that IT operations teams are forced to function with fewer people and resources, while managing the new complexity that comes from hybrid environments and the rapid pace of change. Our customers are challenged to increase productivity while lowering costs – not a simple proposition. This reality explains why the deployment of IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) solutions like our JAWS Workload Analytics platform in large enterprises is expanding exponentially.”

Hade continues, “Gartner forecasts a 100% increase in ITOA spending worldwide over the next two years, and our rapid growth over the past year indicates that they are correct in their analysis of the market. Our goal is to continue to provide advanced IT analytics solutions to enable large organizations to have actionable understandings of the impact of IT on the business.”

Jim Anderson, V.P. of Product Strategy at Terma, comments, “We see good opportunities to expand Terma’s portfolio of products consistent with our stated strategy and we will continue to further enhance the existing products. We are actively pursuing additional integration opportunities between our platform and other strategic technologies and are optimistic that these will contribute to continued growth over the next year and beyond.”

Hade adds, “In head-to-head comparisons of features & functionality, as well as by anecdotal client assessments – the sole competitive product on the market shows to be vastly inferior to JAWS. Our competitive position has contributed enormously to the success we have enjoyed this year and we look forward to continued growth in 2015.”

Our products modernize workload environments instantly, and bring the critical work of job scheduling into the 21st century, while not disrupting the underlying infrastructure that has been carefully designed to run our customers’ businesses,” says Shane Hade, CEO of Terma.

“TermaINSIGHT answers our customers’ need for a lightweight, easy to use, configurable analytics platform that significantly lends much-needed visibility into their workload operations.“ Hade continues, “We are hosting a hospitality suite at CA World this year at Mandalay Bay where folks can come to relax during the conference, enjoy breakfast, lunch and evening cocktails, meet myself and our team and see presentations of TermaINSIGHT and JAWS in a relaxed, comfortable setting.”

TERMA SOFTWARE LABS ANNOUNCES SINGLE PANE OF GLASS FOR WORKLOAD AUTOMATION — November 15, 2013

Today Terma Software Labs announced centralized management for job scheduling and workload automation products, also known as “Single Pane of Glass” management. A constant challenge for customers using multiple job scheduling engines and/or multiple vendors’ job scheduling products is the effective management of these environments: the user interfaces between products are very different, the approaches to management are inefficient, and the products themselves are simply not integrated. Terma Software Labs’ JAWS Workload Analytics platform solves these current day challenges by standardizing and modernizing both the user interface as well as the overarching management approach. JAWS can manage the following scenarios from a single and common user interface for CA AutoSys, CA 7, Tidal, and OpsWise:

Multiple instances of the same scheduling product on different platforms
Multiple instances and different release levels of the same scheduling product
Mixed environments (CA, Tidal, OpsWise) with different vendors scheduling products
Mixed platforms (mainframe & distributed) with different scheduling product such as CA 7 on the mainframe and CA AutoSys on distributed

The latest release of JAWS Workload Analytics features an intuitive user interface for managing these heterogeneous environments. It includes richer analytics for managing workload environments by providing resource awareness, agent awareness, advanced reporting, and additional support for legacy and newly released versions of job scheduling platforms. Terma’s platform for workload analytics provides a standard approach to integrating multiple vendors’ workload automation products.

BUSINESSES OFTEN STRUGGLE TO GET THE MOST VALUE OUT OF THEIR IT RESOURCES. — November 11, 2013

To the average enterprise member, IT operations are shrouded in mystery. For the vast majority of business users, these departments largely serve to help keep the lights on. Because so many enterprise leaders are in the dark regarding IT activity, they repeatedly miss opportunities to better utilize these teams and maximize their value to the business.

A recent survey of nonprofit leaders conducted by accounting firm Tate & Tyron found that the managerial structures of these organizations are often inappropriately constructed. Only 13 percent of the respondents stated that their IT departments reported directly to the CEO, according to Nonprofit Quarterly. Meanwhile, 38 percent said their IT leaders were required to report to their CFO or COO, effectively putting IT under the oversight of another department.

Companies often have trouble discerning how to get the most value out of their day-to-day IT operations as well. The Florida Current reported that state lawmakers have recently discussed potential ways to consolidate IT resources and enhance the department's performance. A key point of debate between government officials has been the role that the department would play overseeing IT processes across state agencies. The news source noted that lawmakers have had difficulty in the past coming to an agreement on how to best structure IT in the state of Florida.

What role should IT serve?
Within both the public and private sectors, debates surrounding the use of IT often boil down to maintenance and innovation. Traditionally, these departments have largely been tasked with keeping critical machines and networks online and functioning, leaving little - if any - time or manpower for enterprise-building endeavors. When IT resources are solely utilized for hardware and software upkeep, businesses fail to optimize these departments to their full potential.

IT members can greatly enhance enterprise operations by working more directly with other departments. For instance, MarketingProfs contributor Adele Sweetwood recently outlined how her marketing and IT employees have worked together to improve the customer engagement efforts by taking advantage of digital data streams. Working with IT, the marketing department was able to tear down existing data silos and incorporate sophisticated analytics processes. This has allowed Sweetwood's company to craft more finely honed marketing campaigns that effectively target audiences.

To replicate this successful synchronization of disparate business units, companies will need to free up their existing IT resources. Workload automation analytics solutions offer an opportunity to greatly reduce the amount of manual oversight needed to keep critical systems and assets running. This technology can vastly improve the performance of job scheduling systems and eliminate many of the IT processing errors that can lead to expensive service disruptions. IT operations analytics tools assess past trends and current conditions to help administrators determine how to optimize their jobstreams. By incorporating this technology, IT departments can reduce the amount of personnel needed to maintain complex workflow environments while improving the performance of their processes and tasks. This will leave more resources available for other beneficial and potentially innovative pursuits.

IMPLEMENTING PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS TOOLS CAN HELP ORGANIZATIONS REDUCE RISKS AND ELIMINATE OPERATIONAL INEFFICIENCIES. — November 8, 2013

Within every corner of the enterprise, department leaders look for new opportunities to reduce risk and inefficiencies. Over the past several years, the advent of advanced analytics processes have provided these business users with new effective tools to achieve these goals. Among the litany of enterprise-grade technologies to emerge recently, predictive analytics has shown some of the greatest potential for direct operational value. Many industries, from marketing to insurance, have already begun leveraging theses tools to dramatically improve their operations, but IT environments may provide the most conducive environment for their deployment.

While retailers and other consumer-facing organizations have utilized predictive analytics to better anticipate market trends and meet customer demands, other areas of industry have put these resources to use improving their risk management practices. In the insurance sector, avoiding risk is critical, as the profitability of a firm could suffer if staff members are not careful about who they offer their services to and how far they extend a given policy's coverage. Customers in this field can be viewed as investments, with some presenting far more risk factors than others. In addition, insurance fraud is a common occurrence, further undercutting the bottom line of organizations throughout the industry.

Predictive analytics tools help these firms better assess the potential for a particular client to file a claim down the road, and if the payout will offset the culmination of policy payments made until then. Furthermore, insurance companies can leverage this technology to more accurately determine whether a claim is completely legitimate or fraudulent. By making more informed decisions regarding what coverage is extended to a client and which claims are approved, insurance firms can generate healthier revenue streams and please stockholders.

According to a recent survey jointly conducted by Earnix and ISO, 82 percent of North American insurance professionals stated that their firms used predictive analytics in some capacity, Insurance Journal reported. Of those, 55 percent cited the ability to reduce operational risks as a benefit of implementing these tools. Meanwhile, 39 percent stated that they had experienced improved operational efficiency since deploying predictive analytics solutions.

Applying predictive capabilities to IT
The ability to better identify risk factors and reduce inefficiencies offers a great deal of value to IT departments, particularly those that experience bottlenecks and disruptions within their job scheduling workflows. Even with sophisticated workload automation tools such as CA 7 or AutoSys in place, it may be difficult for administrators to identify the sources of these performance issues, preventing them from effectively addressing them. By incorporating an IT operations analytics solution, employees can trace jobstream delays back to their root cause in short order and correct them before they lead to more costly and damaging service disruptions.

Over the past eight years, IBM has invested a considerable amount of capital into its analytics processes, including predictive capabilities aimed at improving IT environments, IDG News Service reported. Gathering information from a variety of metrics and key performance indicators, these tools can then determine if current jobstream conditions may prevent critical tasks from receiving the resources needed to complete within their allotted timeframe.

"For instance, a banking application may be performing slowly, but it would be difficult for a network administrator to determine the problem may be with the Java Virtual Machines (JVMs), which are executing garbage collection duties at inopportune times, slowing their output," the source explained.

A sophisticated workload analytics tools can organize jobstream resources and tasks to support mission-critical processes and ensure that they execute as planned. In addition, system administrators will be notified immediately if any developments emerge that may prevent high-priority jobs from completing, giving them ample lead time to make the necessary changes. By laying down this workflow safety net, businesses can ensure they reliably meet the conditions of their SLAs and continue providing high-quality services.
