Mir3 Has SaaS Versions of IT Notification Software

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Mir3 has introduced hosted versions of its inEnterprise and TelAlert 6e IT event notification software. The announcement represents another example of the trend toward software as a service (SaaS), where users turn to external hosting of their IT applications.

At the same time, the Mir3 SaaS, known as Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), further highlights the role IT has in tying physical security applications into the enterprise network as a whole. ESB provides a comprehensive integration platform for creating alert-enabled business processes, providing instant intelligent alerts on the health of the hardware or software supporting any enterprise application, including physical security.

For CSOs, the inEnterprise and TelAlert 6e software would generate alarms if there is a fault or failure in physical security hardware such as cameras, access systems and sensors. The IT notification software automatically forwards the alarms to personnel with recommended response actions, said Frank Mahdavi, chief strategy officer for Mir3. Alerts can be forwarded and displayed to a large number of devices, including faxes, laptops and smartphones, he said.

IT notification software is designed to close the gap between incident detection and action, Mahdavi explained. Used with an IT service management system or legacy application, it ensures important status information is delivered to the right people, anywhere.

Traditionally IT notification has been provided as a piece of code for server hardware that users maintain themselves. That usually means that user organizations must have their own skill sets related to specific hardware. In the hosted environment, Mir3 takes responsibility for maintaining the systems and the code. "The biggest part of the cost of ownership isn't software, it's maintaining the information so it's useful when you need it," Mahdavi told me. "You just want to send the notification."

SaaS, he said, offers "quick time to value." Users can have their IT notification systems up quickly and avoid the cost of maintaining operations.

The ESB software is concluding a beta test with "one of the top five oil and gas companies in the world," Mahdavi said. The company said that inEnterprise and TelAlert solutions are currently used by 87 Fortune 100 companies, well as by government organizations and more than 200 U.S. colleges and universities.
