Survey Points to EMC as "Leading Innovator" in Configuration ManagementBased on High Ratings for EMC Smarts Application Discovery Manager and EMC Infra

EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today reinforced its market leadership in automated IT management software as the company announced it received high marks for both its application dependency mapping and configuration management database (CMDB) solutions in a new independent customer survey. EMC addresses these markets with its EMC Smarts Application Discovery Manager and EMC Infra software offerings. The data was collected by market analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates in the course of researching its report, "CMDB System Deployments The deployment of a mechanical device, electrical system, computer program, etc., is its assembly or transformation from a packaged form to an operational working state.

Deployment implies moving a product from a temporary or development state to a permanent or desired state.

The study surveyed 162 industry executives, managers and professionals and -- while Enterprise Management Associates is not releasing head-to-head results -- the firm announced that both EMC's application dependency mapping (Smarts Application Discovery Manager) and CMDB (Infra) solutions ranked among the highest competitively in terms of customer satisfaction.

"Both EMC Smarts Application Discovery Manager and EMC Infra substantially outperformed the industry average for customer satisfaction, both individually and collectively," said Dennis Drogseth, Vice President, Enterprise Management Associates. "Given these results, we believe EMC has the potential to emerge as a leading innovator in the Configuration Management Systems (CMS (1) See content management system and color management system.

Core to the survey, Enterprise Management Associates reports a majority of respondents recognize the cost-savings associated with CMDB deployments and point to these technologies as key to helping companies pull out of the economic downturn.

 the fact that CMDB investments represent a creative approach to gaining operational efficiencies, minimizing risk, and optimizing capex assets through automated insights into duplicative, unused, or inappropriately licensed assets."

Finally, Enterprise Management Associates notes the ability to automate CMDB's was a primary concern for most respondents, as they ranked automation as the number one feature required when choosing to adopt new solutions. For application dependency mapping, the survey reports primary challenges as: "administrative overhead, lack of currency, cost and lack of visibility into how the application dependency mapping tool identifies specific CIs."

"In today's fast moving and complex virtualized data center environments, companies are struggling with how to improve configuration management visibility and control to ensure IT can continuously improve service levels and deliver new operational efficiencies to the business," said EMC's Chris Gahagan, Senior Vice President, Resource Management Software.
