Judges Give Macrovision High Marks for Enterprise Cost Benefits
SANTA CLARA, CA - Feb 8, 2005 - Macrovision Corporation (Nasdaq:MVSN) today announced that AdminStudio™ was the only software packaging solution to be recognized in SearchWin2000.com’s 2004 Products of the Year awards program by the editors of TechTarget’s Windows Media Group and a panel of independent judges.
The SearchWin2000.com Products of the Year awards assess many enterprise Windows products, with the goal of helping enterprises choose must-have tools to keep their desktops, servers and applications running smoothly and cost-efficiently. Macrovision’s AdminStudio received high marks for value and functionality as well as for its speed and seamless integration with existing software deployment environments. SearchWin2000.com recognized AdminStudio along with two other leading Windows enterprise administration products, including Microsoft’s SMS 2003 SP1.
"Judges pointed to AdminStudio’s ‘outstanding’ suite of quality assurance tools that ultimately save companies money by increasing administrator productivity during application troubleshooting, testing, repackaging and redeployment," wrote SearchWin2000.com editor Matt Danielsson.
"Another cost-benefit is speed, judges noted. AdminStudio 6.0 runs quickly through structured application preparation processes, which slashes rollout time."
Judges also recognized AdminStudio for its seamless integration into existing environments such as Microsoft SMS, Novell ZENworks, LANDesk Management Suite, Marimba, IBM Tivoli, Microsoft Active Directory, ManageSoft and Altiris.
In recent months, Macrovision has garnered significant industry support through its partnerships with Microsoft® and Novell® to provide special editions of AdminStudio for IT administrators using Microsoft SMS 2003 and Novell’s ZENworks® 6.5 respectively. In addition, Macrovision partner LANDesk resells AdminStudio with its LANDesk Management Suite. These partnerships further validate AdminStudio’s place as the leader in pre-deployment application preparation and underscore the company’s strength in supporting a range of leading deployment solutions.
AdminStudio provides a complete suite of automated software packaging, customization, conflict resolution, and quality assurance tools that make it easy for systems administrators to prepare reliable applications and software patches for enterprise use. Additional integrated solutions such as AMS and Patch Impact Manager are available to further expand the application lifecycle coverage.
Application packaging is a key component of Macrovision’s Software Value Management solutions, which include software installation, updating, packaging and licensing, entitlement management, end user management, and usage optimization.
