Tinton Falls, NJ – October 11, 2008 - IntegraSolv Corp., leader in industrial strength, low maintenance monitoring solutions for real-time networked enterprises, today announced that is has provided Owl Service Op-Center to the Intelligent Maintenance Systems Center (IMS) of University of Cincinnati.

Owl provides application support teams and IT management with a business focused, holistic view of the health and performance of the application services networks, of the business processes that those applications support, and of the relevant IT infrastructure. At the heart of Owl is a real-time model of  business processes, and their dependencies on application architecture and IT infrastructure. The model is kept “live” by real-time analysis of incoming enterprise telemetry. The key Owl capabilities include auto-discovery of applications and their dependencies, zero administration, business impact evaluation, visual root cause analysis, and historical analysis.

The vision for the Center for Intelligent Maintenance Systems is to enable products and systems to achieve and sustain near-zero breakdown performance, and ultimately transform the traditional maintenance practices from “fail and fix ” to “predict and prevent” methodology. The Center is focused on frontier technologies in embedded and remote monitoring, prognostics technologies, and intelligent decision support tools and has coined the trademarked Watchdog Agent prognostics tools and Device-to-Business (D2B) infotronics platform for e-maintenance systems.

“We are happy to provide Owl to the IMS Center. The center’s focus on condition based maintenance (CBM) of industrial environment and IntegraSolv’s focus on industrial strength monitoring of computing systems are very close in their goals. ” says Arthur Frankstein, Managing Partner at IntegraSolv. “IntegraSolv is interested in learning from the IMS center’s expertise in predictive maintenance and improving overall quality of manufacturing systems and also sharing our expertise in operations of computer systems and telecommunications networks with the center’s members and students.”

“We are happy to work with IntegraSolv and learn from their expertise in large scale monitoring of telecommunication networks,” said Jay Lee, Ohio Eminent Scholar and Alter Chair in Advanced Manufacturing at the University of Cincinnati and Director, NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center on Intelligent Maintenance Systems (IMS), “We are very interested in working with IntegraSolv to explore providing an infrastructure for that would make predictive maintenance ubiquitous.”
