Avis Europe Selects Tideway to Power Change Control for IT Compliance

20 November 2008

Tideway, one of the fastest growing providers of IT automation software, today announced that Avis Europe has selected Tideway Foundationâ„¢ to enhance change control and validation in its distributed datacentre environment. The implementation will help Avis meet audit and compliance requirements, provide decision support and reduce the risk of service outages due to unplanned or improperly implemented changes.

Foundation will provide Avis with detailed and continuous information on what changed in their infrastructure, allowing them to reconcile and drill down on specific changes, identify unauthorised activity and confirm all changes follow the appropriate change management process. Foundation’s new user-defined, shared dashboards will provide a fast, rolled-up view of changes in Avis’ IT environment.

“We selected Tideway because we immediately saw the fit for our organisation. Tideway Foundation allows us to ‘watch the watchers’ and demonstrate we have command and control over our change management process,” said Robin Gardner, CTO of Avis Europe. “The dashboards and visualisations Foundation provides make it much easier to distinguish what’s changed in our environment and quickly drill down to the detail when we need it. This is a cost-effective solution that is fast to implement and can show real value very quickly.”

“We’re proud to have Avis join the growing list of Tideway clients who are leveraging Foundation to optimise their IT infrastructure and drive better, faster, safer change management,” said Richard Muirhead, CEO and Founder of Tideway. “We’re confident Tideway Foundation will streamline and accelerate the change impact analysis process for Avis.”
