Configuration automation

Workflow Automation to Bulk Deploy Changes

  • Drag and drop interface to bulk-deploy application and middleware configuration changes.
  • Orca provides robust, extensively tested interfaces to your business critical applications, databases and middleware across your AIX, Linux and Windows environments.
  • No “black box”. Multiple ways to pre-validate application and middleware configuration changes before you run them including preview, “dry run” and interface editing capabilities.

  • Simplifies complex configuration management of disparate data from multiple sources.
  • Beyond just monitoring, correct drift using drag-and-drop interface and existing templates.
  • Or use auto-remediation option to correct drift without intervention.

  • Fuller transparency for HIPAA, PCI 3.1, SOX and other compliance audits by tracking the “who”, “what”, “when”, “where” and “why” behind those changes.
  • Centralizes all configuration revisions and logs to easily see how configurations have changed over time.
