In a new report, ‘Magnum Technologies Automates Business Service and Service Level Management’ THINKstrategies praises Magnum Technologies ability, via its BSM Software ADVANTAGE, to help organizations set the stage for smooth and efficient ITIL adoption. MINNEAPOLIS – August 9, 2006 – Magnum Technologies’ (http://www.magnum-tech.com/landing/think-strategies/) – flagship business service management software, ADVANTAGE is praised – in a new report by THINKstrategies – for its unique ability to overcome technical and organizational obstacles often present in the path to ITIL adoption.According to THINKstrategies, IT enterprises that have had their credibility undercut by ongoing performance and reliability issues are turning to solutions, such as Magnum Technologies ADVANTAGE BSM software to restore credibility. ADVANTAGE restores IT credibility by producing real-time reports that correlate IT and application performance to specific lines of business (LOBs).“SLM has been around for more than a decade, with few enterprises satisfied with the results,” said Mike Ducatelli, senior vice president, Magnum Technologies. “We’re proud of the positive statements made in the report about our flagship ADVANTAGE BSM software.”THINKstrategies also points out that BSM looks to raise the SLM bar by calling on IT organizations to go beyond establishing internal and external service levels and start measuring the business value of their services. The paper also notes that without effective SLM and BSM services in place, adopting ITIL is unlikely to produce the desired results.Magnum Technologies’ addresses the pain IT enterprises currently experience, when adopting ITL, with its richly developed ADVANTAGE business service management software which:• Automates the IT component dependency mapping & discovery process• Generates detailed performance and availability metrics• Provides real-time SLM/SLA reporting• Automates the adoption of an ITIL frameworkTHINKstrategies points to Magnum Technologies’ 3 unique capabilities to explain what sets its software apart from other BSM vendors.

Multi-Layer Correlation which measures the impact of IT infrastructure and application performance on corporate lines of business.
