Ecora Adds Solaris to its Documentor Software Line

Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Ecora

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Simplifying IT just became
 easier as Ecora announces the newest addition to its growing list of
 Documentors for the enterprise.  Ecora's Documentor for Solaris provides a
 clear and detailed picture of Solaris configurations throughout the
 enterprise, and provides instant, intelligent analysis of server parameters.
 These easy-to-generate and plain-English reports are the antacid for the IT
 staff's previously sour task of manual retrieval, analysis, and documentation
 of server configurations.
     "Security breaches and catastrophic outages have shown corporate
 management how documentation apathy puts their entire enterprise at risk,"
 says Alex Bakman, CEO of Ecora.  "By not arming their IT staff with the
 blueprints to patch known security holes in server configurations, or properly
 prepare a disaster recovery plan, CIOs are being hit with the hidden costs of
 not documenting their IT infrastructures."
     "Our Solaris platform continues to extend our reach into the enterprise
 market, and positions our solution as a vital business tool for larger
 organizations running UNIX (Solaris).  We will also be leveraging Solaris'
 strong market share in the financial services, government, and healthcare
 markets," adds Bakman.
     According to IDC, Sun Microsystems was the number one server vendor in
 revenue in the United States for 2000, and captured 44 percent of the UNIX
 market with shipments and a 35 percent market share in revenue.
 
     Ecora Documentor for Solaris: An Enterprise Solution
     The Ecora Documentor for Solaris provides a thorough and informative look
 at configuration options, filenames, default settings, and many important
 system parameters.  A plain-English report of the system's current settings is
 provided, as well as instructions and suggestions to implement adjustments.
     This information is invaluable in helping IT managers, systems
 integrators, consultants or resellers create system and security documentation
 for IT auditors.  The intelligence also serves to help preserve the IT
 knowledge base often lost to staff turnover or budget cuts, minimize downtime
 in disaster recovery, simplify server consolidation, and document platform
 migrations.  Documentor for Solaris provides flexible reports in long or short
 form, and can be displayed in Acrobat (.PDF), Word (.DOC), or HTML formats.
     "Maintaining accurate IT documentation tends to be such a time-consuming
 task enterprises have preferred to 'reinvent the wheel' every time there is a
 configuration problem," says Jasmine Noel, director, systems and applications
 management for the Hurwitz Group, a strategic consulting and research firm
 providing advice and assistance with e-Business and IT initiatives  "But, e-
 Business' dependence on secure, well-behaved systems requires IT to have all
 that configuration knowledge readily available in an easily understandable
 format."
 
     ABOUT ECORA
     Ecora, based in Portsmouth, NH, offers two software product lines that
 help businesses extend their IT budgets and better manage business challenges
 such as disaster recovery, establishing security policies, preparing their
 systems for IT audits, and preserving the IT knowledge base.  Documentors
 simplify information technology by enabling system integrators, consultants
 and IT managers to build comprehensive plain-English text and graphic reports
 detailing the configuration settings of servers on a system.  This eliminates
 hours of manual work, often left undone.  IT Auditor(TM) offers all of the
 benefits of Documentor, but adds the ability to manage complex system changes
 for dynamic enterprises.  Ecora offers its products through three distribution
 channels, including a downloadable executable, in-house application server, or
 as a Web-based solution for Windows NT/2000(R), Microsoft Exchange(R),
 Lotus(R)Domino(TM), Oracle(R) Database Servers, and Sun Solaris(TM).  For more
