fluid Operations™ (fluidOps), an innovative software company headquartered in Walldorf, Germany, provides an open platform which allows for the semantic integration of structured and unstructured data across business and IT stacks and delivers the flexibility needed to optimize information management, data integration, self-service IT, IT operations, and IT service management. This basis is leveraged to deliver our cutting-edge infrastructure and cloud monitoring, management and orchestration solution, the eCloudManager™, as well as the Information Workbench™, a cloud-based Linked Data and Big Data management platform. Using a rich Solution Development Kit, partners and customers can extend the platform and build new solutions and apps for different industries and sectors.
The cloud computing trend that can be seen today shows an important transition and paradigm shift in IT services delivery, away from users’ local machines to “clouds in the web”, regardless of whether these are located inside or outside of the company walls. Traditional enterprise datacenters built upon rigid, isolated devices belong to the past. Here at fluidOps we want to help companies out of this rigidness and into tomorrow’s cloud-based flexibility. With the eCloudManager™, fluidOps delivers a flexible infrastructure and cloud monitoring, management and orchestration platform for complex, virtualized and physical enterprise environments. This includes the creation of a flexible cloud infrastructure, the rapid provisioning of new single systems or complete enterprise application landscapes through a self-service portal, as well as the efficient, automated handling of the daily operations of a private or public enterprise cloud. For the eCloudManager’s ability to deliver entire enterprise application landscapes to end users as Landscape as a Service (LaaS)™, fluid Operations has been named “Gartner Cool Vendor in the SAP Ecosystem” for 2010 and a market game-changer.
As the amount of both internal but also publicly-available information increases, innovative tools to handle the data overload become ever more important. Semantic technologies can help businesses visualize, collaborate, explore and understand large amounts of information within minutes. With the Information Workbench™ fluidOps delivers a highly customizable platform for Linked Data and Big Data management and solution development. This includes support for the semantic integration of heterogeneous data sources across the borders of individual domains, collaborative knowledge acquisition and augmentation, semantic search, business intelligence and analytics, as well as data visualization and exploration.
