Software provider, Novadigm Inc., has renewed its reseller agreement with AST Products, a division of The AST Group. As a result of the agreement, AST says that it will continue to provide its clients with Novadigm's comprehensive solution and innovative 'desired state' technology.
Novadigm's technology is designed to provide ongoing configuration management for enterprise software on servers, desktops and mobile devices, aiming to enable organizations to reduce ICT costs and to increase service levels.
"By combining our technical expertise with Novadigm's solutions, AST will enable organizations to manage the discovery, deployment, configuration, repair, update and removal of digital assets software and content on computing devices such as servers, desktops, laptops, handhelds, ATMs, point-of-sale terminals and Internet kiosks," explains Henrik Stanley-Madsen, MD of AST Products.
Novadigm's suite of integrated products, built with proprietary e-wrap technology, are claimed to work seamlessly together, as the only end-to-end solution that can efficiently, reliably and scalably manage the full range of today's software and content, running on a wide range of computing devices, personalized for individual users, across virtually any network, the company says.
Novadigm's products aim to utilize e-wrap technology, with its desired-state process, to automate the deployment and management of software and content across complex environments thus ensuring, the company claims, that the right software components are always available to the right users at the right time, without requiring administrative or user intervention.
E-wrap technology's patented fractional differencing technique is designed to deploy only the minimal software and content items necessary for updates and corrections, and to minimize network impact and speeding delivery. In addition, e-wrap technology aims to utilize a policy-driven management approach, which leverages enterprise directory services and databases to govern the provisioning and ongoing management of software and content.
With Novadigm's e-wrap technology, ICT professionals, software vendors and service providers are said to be able to manage digital assets with policy-based capabilities, which aim to enable automated management of individual applications or entire portfolios of software and content throughout the extended supply chain of publishers, service providers, enterprise ICT and users or subscribers, the company concludes.
