Since last year, Merethis has been focusing on an ambitious project: revamping Centreon and improving our products. In 2011 Merethis took a step forward and decided to fork Nagios and create Centreon Engine and Centreon Broker. Those two new projects are here to stay to strengthen Centreon especially improving its performance. Centreon Engine and Centreon Broker let us now go even further in software architecture, as they will evolve, new features will rise such as high availability and event management.
Centreon GUI is also ready to evolve. Users will soon be able to experiment the new “face” of Centreon, more ergonomic, more interactive and customizable. We are doing our best to bring you a new piece of software as easy to use as one can expect. GUI revamping is not all about display, we are currently working on brand new GUI to address specific needs and create tools such as a hypervisor, a dashboard and address metrology needs.
Commercial extensions won’t be left aside by those major changes. Centreon BAM will evolve to a more ITIL orientation including procedures, tasks and checklists as in the ITL Library. It will also bring tutorials for easier KPI creation. On the Centreon MAP side, our teams are already working on a major improvement: a web based display. This new display will come along with the current fat client (used for studio design) to bring the lightness of web technologies and improve data portability. We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Actuate (the people behind Birt) that will help us take Centreon BI to the next level. We are currently revamping the whole Centreon BI architecture to allow customers to create Datamarts and Datawarehouses. Centreon BI will then be a large set of reporting and data visualization tools and technologies to build rich reports.
As far as Centreon entreprise Server is concerned, we are on the verge of clinching a deal with the world´s most trusted provider of Linux and open source technology… Stay tuned!
Last but not least, we would like to thank all of you, committers, and developers, members of the Centreon Community, users and customers. It is business associates like you who make our jobs a pleasure and keep our company successful. We work everyday to enhance current software, create new features to meet your requirements and needs. On top of those technological improvements, Merethis is expanding thanks the development of a network of partners. Certified partners are already waiting for you to contact them in France and in Europe, and we are currently looking for partners in America!
Together, we are going to make Centreon the most reliable software dedicated to IT infrastructure and application monitoring for service performance.
