  11. 11. 11 Property of Automic Software. All rights reserved 3rd Place - Automating Windows Agent Installation Nir Cohen Website: www.bynet.co.il/en/ The Challenge – The manual process of a Windows Agent installation or upgrade can be a extremely time and resource consuming process. (Especially when there are 100’s of Agents) Hero Feat – Developed a Windows Agent installation tool using the Automic Java API. The tool enables a silent installation on any server that is connected to the Automation Engine, simplifying the manual installation process into one simple click.
  12. 12. 12 Property of Automic Software. All rights reserved 3rd Place – Automating Backups Mark Bowytz Website: corporate.ppg.com The Challenge - The backup process was distributed among multiple tools and custom scripts with no centralized way of tracking steps in the process and status. Failures were a common occurrence and troubleshooting and correcting failures was time consuming and complicated. Hero Feat - Established the Automation Engine as the centralized point to execute and monitor Backups worldwide. Workflows allowed PPG to created dependencies among disparate tools and decommission complex custom scripts.

  14. 14. 14 Property of Automic Software. All rights reserved 2nd Place - Unified Scheduling Rick Chen The Challenge - Supporting over 3k jobs among key applications without Automic was a nightmare. The scheduling functions of each application weren’t sophisticated enough to provide efficient job and processes overview and control. Hero Feat - Shifted responsibility of scheduling to Automic, which allowed the consolidation of of all nightly processing into one master Workflow which contains over 2,700 jobs. This allowed Support visibility across all vital nightly jobs and enabled them to quickly identify and resolve issues.

  16. 16. 16 Property of Automic Software. All rights reserved 1st Place – Self-Service Provisioning Joel Polster Website: tasconline.com The Challenge - To develop or test new applications, users had a limited number of virtual machines available to use which required them to manually launch the application from the command line. This limited their ability to develop and release changes to production apps. Hero Feat - Built a solution using Automic ARA to provision and deploy full environments on-demand. A QA user is now able to reserve an environment, deploy a full application stack and test within 20 mins. This has allowed them to remove the environment limitation and successfully deploy several production releases each week.
