The system uses an extensible pool of providers and supports the definition, customization and automation of cloud and data workflows and processes. It can also be used to develop customized solutions to meet specific user requirements.
Innovative semantic data and cloud management features and a flexible, data-driven user interface provide the underlying technologies that are the key to the Platform’s power. Using the Platform, customers can
- automate Cloud and Big Data processes and workflows
- add transparency to all aspects of their business
- innovate new services for end-users and drive corporate objectives
eCloudManager 5.0 and Information Workbench 2.5
To accompany the introduction of the Platform, updated versions of the company’s key software applications are also being released: eCloudManager 5.0 and Information Workbench 2.5, both of which are based on the fluidOps Platform.
The eCloudManager™ enables users to build and manage flexible and scalable enterprise-level cloud environments. This innovative tool provides an overview of the entire data center, including storage systems, physical and virtual compute infrastructure, networks and applications. In this way, eCloudManager creates a true “IT as a service” environment. This allows end-users to consume everything from compute resources (Infrastructure as a Service), to storage resources (Storage as a Service), to complex, multi-tiered enterprise application landscapes (Landscape as a Service™) and service extensions in a cloud-like manner. eCloudManager also easily performs functions like license management, documentation, collaboration, analysis and reporting.
The revised product version integrates new providers to support EMC® VNXe® storage systems and additional hypervisors, and delivers a new, use-case-oriented and user-friendly graphical interface.

Information Workbench 2.5
Information Workbench™ enables users to manage Linked Data and Big Data in the cloud and to develop their own customized business applications. Media companies, publishers, IT enterprises, healthcare centers, public institutions and life sciences companies are already using Information Workbench to gather and enlarge knowledge bases, conduct semantic searches across the entire database and perform business intelligence and analytics, data visualization and exploration.
Information Workbench 2.5 brings enhancements targeting particularly the usability and the user experience of the platform. The new features of the triple editor facilitate ontology driven editing and authoring, and include XML datatype validation, specialized visualization components for particular datatypes (e.g. a date picker) as well as cardinality support for properties. In addition, the Information Workbench now provides functionality for ad-hoc search result analysis (i.e. query persistence and visualization of query results in dashboards using data type dependent visualization widgets) as well as an integrated user interface for ontology driven editing. Besides the focus on the user experience, the new version of the Information Workbench brings multiple enhancements to the core of the platform, including hybrid search enhancements, basic authentication support in the SPARQL endpoint and diagnostics capabilities.
