Newmerix, a provider of comprehensive Application Lifecycle Management solutions, has introduced new versions of Automate!Control and Automate!Change, part of their Automate! suite designed to reduce high costs and effort required to maintain packaged applications like SAP, PeopleSoft and Oracle E-Business Suite.
These programs now offer workflow, document management, improved data reporting and enhanced security for PeopleSoft and Oracle E-Business Suite customers. They also integrate with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, letting customers benefit from increased collaboration, information sharing and productivity. The Newmerix Automate! suite consists of three components: Automate!Control, Automate!Change and Automate!Test.
* Automate!Control gives CIOs and IT management an overarching dashboard and compliance repository that makes all levels of the change management process visible.
* Automate!Change helps organizations achieve consistent change and release management as well as enforceable Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
* Automate!Test lowers the cost of testing application changes while speeding up test cycles of greater breadth and depth to help achieve predictable release cycles.
Furthermore, the integration of the Newmerix Automate! suite with Office SharePoint Server 2007 helps reduce the cost and effort to manage PeopleSoft and Oracle applications due to advanced capabilities like workflow and document management.
