Nolio appoints Blue Turtle as sole distributor to extend Release Automation

Blue Turtle Technologies (Blue Turtle) today announced that an agreement was reached with Nolio, giving Blue Turtle sole distribution rights to the company’s products and services in southern Africa.

Nolio Application Service Automation Platform (Nolio ASAP) automates release deployment processes of multi-tier, distributed applications and their configuration settings across the application life cycle in different environments.

It allows data centre teams to centrally execute and control the tasks needed to deploy and service applications, eliminating complexity and errors while streamlining operations for heightened application uptime, accelerated time-to-release and immediate productivity gains.

“We are excited with the new partnership with Nolio as their products and solutions fit perfectly with our Application Lifecycle Management competency. Furthermore, Serena Software, with whom we have had a longstanding relationship, recently announced product integration with Nolio ASAP to extend their release automation offering, further adding value to our local clients,” comments Marius Nauhaus, Product Manager at Blue Turtle.

Manual processes and lack of release automation technologies lead to unnecessary deployment errors and increased application service costs. According to market analysts, up to 60% of application downtime is caused by misconfigurations and application service errors. Coupled with the ever increasing complexity of today’s software application releases, IT operations teams can spend as much as 75% of their time managing continuous application integration, data centre application releases and maintenance tasks.

Nolio heightens application uptime by automating application deployment and service operations, eliminating errors and replacing manual tasks with reliable, repeatable processes to mitigate the risk of application change. In addition, by bridging between application silos and streamlining ongoing application service tasks, Nolio cuts forced maintenance windows by as much as 50%, eliminating the cost of ‘end-user minutes lost’. The automation of troubleshooting and recovery processes further contains downtime costs, reducing both remediation time and failure duration by up to 70%.

“With Nolio we are able to assist our clients to dramatically reduce the cost of servicing applications, scaling workload capacity of application operation teams by three-six times, accelerating application release time from days to minutes and enabling knowledge retention and transfer across operational teams,” concludes Nauhaus.
