Greatbatch Leverages Dorado Software's Redcell to Streamline and Automate IT Management

Jul 31, 2009 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Dorado Software, a provider of IT infrastructure lifecycle management software, announced that Greatbatch, Inc., a company developing critical technologies used in medical devices and industrial applications, is using their integrated Redcell enterprise products to automate IT operations and reduce operational expenses of their global and expanding network.

"We were looking for a single tool for IT asset configuration, remediation and monitoring, and Redcell had everything that we were looking for already integrated, and we liked the price," said Dave Nebral, Network/Telecom Manager at Greatbatch, "We were also impressed with Redcell's proactive capabilities. Upon installation, Redcell immediately began adding value to our network operations." Although the immediate appeal was Redcell's key functionality for resource management including monitoring, inventory, configuration and performance management, Greatbatch quickly realized that Redcell will increase operational efficiencies, the company noted in a release. Redcell will be used to deploy and manage their Cisco networking devices over their world-wide locations.

The company said that another deciding factor for Greatbatch to use Redcell was the scalability and extensibility of the solution. Since all Redcell products are integrated and share the same platform, Greatbatch's investment in Redcell lets them upgrade functionality with new applications and new / additional device or technology support, in addition to managing their inevitable deployment growth. "Many of the solutions we evaluated simply couldn't scale to where we see ourselves in the future, as our network doubled in size last year alone," continues Nebral.

"Greatbatch was faced with a rapidly growing network with a lot of tools and tribal knowledge to manage it," said Eric Garrison, IT Director at PremCom, a certified reseller of Dorado Software, "Redcell offers them a great opportunity to streamline their IT management operations and increase efficiencies, which is a fantastic accomplishment given their environment is under a myriad of changes."
