Leading multidiscipline simulation software vendor consolidates IT management tools and processes using Summit Platform
FREMONT, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 17, 2012 — SUMMUS Software, a provider of cost-effective and comprehensive IT operations management solutions, today announced MSC Software has successfully consolidated its disparate IT management tools and processes using SUMMUS Software’s Summit Platform solution to reduce IT costs and deliver higher quality IT services.
As the global leader in the multidiscipline simulation software industry, MSC Software helps companies improve quality, save time and reduce costs associated with the design and testing of manufactured products. MSC Software’s engineering simulation technologies are helping its customers design and deliver innovative products more quickly and cost-effectively.
When MSC Software needed to consolidate its multiple datacenters worldwide, and the associated disparate tools for IT service management (ITSM), IT asset management (ITAM) and availability management from different vendors, the IT operations team conducted an extensive search for a vendor who could provide a single, integrated, comprehensive, and cost-effective IT management solution.
MSC Software chose SUMMUS’ Summit Platform solution to replace its legacy IT operations environment for its integrated, comprehensive IT management capabilities on a single, holistic platform, which can also over time, support a move towards a cloud-based implementation. Another key consideration was MSC Software’s ability to work very closely with SUMMUS Software.
“As a fast-growing company with offices around the globe, distributed IT monitoring and management has proven to be a very difficult and costly challenge for us,” said Himanshu Shah, director of global IT at MSC Software.
Prior to implementing Summit Platform, MSC Software relied on a variety of IT management tools from multiple vendors, resulting in high administrative overhead. Adding new functionalities required complex, lengthy and costly custom consulting engagements.
“The Summit Platform has exceeded even our expectations for the highest service levels, vastly increased user productivity and enhanced IT governance, all without having to invest in additional staff resources,” Shah said. “In addition, it is helping us not just to fix problems, but manage IT more effectively.”
The success of this project has resulted in concrete business benefits for MSC Software: improved cost and process efficiencies, enhanced quality of IT services, and increased operational control. By delivering built-in, comprehensive reporting and auditing capabilities, Summit Platform has provided MSC Software’s IT organization with worldwide visibility of their IT operations, with much greater control.
