FixStream and CenturyLink Accelerate Migration to Hybrid Cloud
CenturyLink accelerates digital transformation methodology via integration with
FixStream – SaaS platform, available on the CenturyLink Marketplace
San Jose, CA (September 1, 2017) –FixStream, an award-winning Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps) vendor, announced today that it has inked a distribution agreement with CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL), a global communications and IT services company.
CenturyLink offers network and data systems management, big data analytics, managed security services, hosting, cloud, and IT consulting services to global enterprises, many of which are planning to digitally transform their business and migrate their applications to the cloud.
Adopting a cloud strategy while deploying new applications can be challenging for IT operations teams, since visibility could be an issue given the dynamic and complex nature of their hybrid environments. Specifically, IT operations teams might need to correlate millions of data points before getting to the root cause of service outages, up from tens of thousands typical of legacy environments.
To dramatically accelerate the migration to hybrid cloud and to significantly reduce the cost of operations thereafter, CenturyLink will now make available to its customers FixStream’s big data correlation, visualization and analytics platform.
FixStream’s platform will also be available on the CenturyLink Marketplace. The SaaS version will enable CenturyLink customers to rapidly deploy the FixStream platform by leveraging CenturyLink’s self-service, high performance on-demand platform.
“We are thrilled that CenturyLink has selected FixStream to help accelerate its customers’ journey to the cloud,” said Sameer Padhye, Founder and CEO of FixStream. “CenturyLink’s proven digital transformation methodology helps businesses adopt cloud-based and multi-cloud management solutions while increasing IT agility, sharpening operational efficiencies, and enhancing customer experiences.”
“FixStream provides a powerful analytics platform that delivers an end-to-end view of transaction flows correlated with applications and infrastructure in hybrid IT environments,” said David Shacochis, vice president, Hybrid IT Product Management at CenturyLink. “We are pleased to make FixStream available to our customers through the CenturyLink Marketplace. We see real opportunity for operational efficiency and customer benefits as managed services become fueled by big data analytics and machine learning.”
This year FixStream was named as a Gartner “Cool Vendor” and won the Red Herring Top 100 award.
FixStream accelerates the delivery of new digital services. It provides analytics and visualization of business transactions correlated with application services and infrastructure (such as compute, network and storage) in hybrid IT. Customers have deployed FixStream to automate root cause analysis of business transactions and applications, optimize IT resources and reduce infrastructure cost, accelerate technology migration to hybrid cloud, and reduce compliance risk and audit costs.
