(The Hosting News) – The initiative launched earlier in the year by a group of Microsoft® partners from around the world to collaborate on the marketing and sales of third-party product enhancements for Microsoft System Center is further expanding to include a new participant and products, and to provide broadened solution coverage.
Kelverion will become a participant in SystemCenterSolutionStore.com, making its extensive library of Integration Packs for Microsoft System Center – Orchestrator available at the site. Kelverion’s products enable organizations to integrate their multi-vendor operational tools and provide pre-built solutions to solve the most common automation requirements.
“We are very excited to join forces with this strong group of companies, each with unique and highly complementary areas of expertise, who are working together in a highly synergistic way to service the needs of the Microsoft System Center community,” said Kelverion Director David Wooster. “On their own, our IT Process Automation and Integration products are a powerful means for System Center 2012 customers with multi-vendor environments to quickly and easily automate processes and implement integrations. Their value is further amplified when combined with the process-centric IT service management and IT asset management solutions our SystemCenterSolutionStore.com partners provide.”
With the addition of Kelverion, SystemCenterSolutionStore.com not only offers an expanded roster of participants and portfolio of products, it broadens its coverage of Microsoft System Center. As the leading supplier of Microsoft System Center 2012 integrations, Kelverion now extends solution coverage of the partnership to include the Orchestrator component.
While the SystemCenterSolutionStore.com web site profiles the participants’ offerings, and showcases products that extend and enhance Microsoft System Center, the partnership extends to a deeper level of both business and product collaboration. The companies have agreements in place to broaden their sales coverage and engage in joint marketing activities, and have recently started working together on product initiatives.
“In May, the partners teamed up to introduce The Suite for Microsoft System Center – Service Manager, an integrated and fully interoperable set of capabilities combined in a single, inexpensive offering,” said Gord Watts, Vice President of Product Development with Provance. “Given the central importance of process automation in supporting IT Service Management and IT Asset Management and the tight integration between the Microsoft System Center – Service Manager and Orchestrator components, Kelverion brings an infinite number of exciting new joint development opportunities to the partnership.”
All of the SystemCenterSolutionStore.com partners will be showcasing their solutions at Microsoft TechEd Europe 2014 taking place October 28th to 31st in Barcelona, Spain. Kelverion is located at stand 100, while Expit, Gridpro, Provance and Syliance will be featured together at stand 72/73 to showcase The Suite. Gridpro will also host at stand 103.
From mobility and web access to IT asset management and more, SystemCenterSolutionStore.com showcases the inspired third-party extensions that add powerful functionality and enhanced capabilities to Microsoft System Center. The current participating companies are Expit, Gridpro, Kelverion, Provance and Syliance.
Following the Microsoft acquisition of Opalis Software in December 2009, David Wooster and Neal McCreesh along with several key members of the Opalis Team founded Kelverion with the objective of extending and enhancing the capabilities of the Opalis IT Process Automation, solution now known as Microsoft System Center – Orchestrator. Today Kelverion helps customers implement and enhance System Center 2012 with key expertise in Orchestrator Integration Packs and Solutions. Kelverion has key alliance partnerships with Microsoft, ServiceNow, BMC and CA to enable System Center 2012 integration and automation across multiple vendor’s products.
