KIRKLAND, Wash., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Bocada, Inc., the world's leading provider of data protection management software and the creator of the Data Protection Service Management (DPSM) model, today unveiled the next generation in enterprise data protection service management with Bocada Prism, a comprehensive workflow-driven application that goes beyond backup reporting, delivering intuitive problem solving, SLA impact alerts and analysis and intelligent knowledge transfer to enhance the delivery of data protection services.


Bocada Prism is the first and only data protection service management solution purpose-built to intuitively drive users through the multi-phased Data Protection Service Management process. The DPSM process ensures organizations can effectively deliver data protection services to internal and external customers by laying out core best practices to achieve greater business and IT alignment, maximize operational efficiency, minimize risk and increase customer satisfaction.

Bocada has leveraged years of customer experiences to create a workflow driven, intelligent analysis solution with built in SLA impact analysis, change tracking, trend analysis and a searchable knowledge base to ensure organizations can meet business goals and improve operational efficiencies.

"Bocada Prism provides a blueprint for IT to build an operational framework for data protection process improvement and operational efficiency," stated Lauren Whitehouse, senior analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. "Like other solutions in its category, it collects and presents data about the data protection environment. However, it stands apart by making that data intuitive to solving problems and managing objectives."

Bocada Prism leverages the same, proven, agentless data collection engine used in previous Bocada applications which have been successfully implemented in the largest, most complex storage environments in the world and have made Bocada the industry's top provider of data protection service management  with more than 300,000 clients under management.

"Bocada Prism was built with the philosophy that an application needs to tell the customer 'what they don't know.' Rather than presenting reports and error alerts, Bocada Prism intuitively determines if errors will impact SLAs and immediately points customers to the path to resolution," said Nancy Hurley, CEO of Bocada. "The intelligent workflow, impact analysis and intuitive knowledge base built into Prism enable customers to manage the goals of the business, rather than have to sort through endless reports to figure out if they are meeting their objectives."

Bocada designed Prism as an intuitive, workflow driven, modular, web-based application that is aimed at both internal IT departments and Managed Service Providers to more effectively deliver data protection services to internal and external customers. The core Bocada Prism application includes Health Check, Problem Management, SLA Management and Policy Management modules and a built in, interactive  searchable Knowledge Base.
