ALM Studio, Omnibus Integration Platform and
the ITSM Studio:
Kovair offers an architecturally versatile platform that is totally web based, that combines the capabilities of an application configuration infrastructure, a configurable graphical workflow engine called the Omni process and an enterprise service bus for integration of multiple tools and applications called the Omnibus. This allows Kovair to be configured for any ALM or ITSM tools applications as well as seamless integration of other third party tools and applications around the Omnibus to create a single repository end to end product development and applications services infrastructure. Kovair today offers more than 30 such integrations from major vendors like IBM Rational, HP, Microsoft and others. The Omnibus can also be deployed for Cloud to Cloud as well as Cloud to Onpremise applications integrations. Kovair products are offered both for On-premise deployment as well as SaaS or Cloud delivery models.
Kovair intends to penetrate the Cloud market further with its Cloud based product offerings as well as Cloud based integrations for major business applications such as Sales Force, Net Suite and integrate them from the Cloud to the on Premise major applications like the SAP. Kovair can leverage its experience in development tools integrations to the domain of business applications integrations.
Kovair will continue to focus on keeping its lead in the ALM integrations on an on going basis with new tool offerings as they are brought to the market by major tool vendors and open source providers. One recent example is integrations with the IBM JAZZ Platform for the new generation of tools from IBM Rational.
The three biggest differentiating factors for Kovair are:
a) Its very codeless applications configurations capabilities with mouse clicks
b) Its Omniprocess workflow engine that can create any workflow or process through Visio like graphical process design capabilities and
c) Its SOA based enterprise service bus – integration engine that can allow integration of any third party tools or applications through their APIs and web service calls.
Primary revenues are from the sale of both on premise and SaaS licenses and additional revenues are derived from services associated with these licenses.
