FireScope Launches Online Marketplace for IT Operations

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Dec. 11 - FireScope, a leading developer of Business Service Management software that offers a real-time view of the health and security of IT Operations, today announced it has launched the FireScope Marketplace, an online marketplace which offers a broad catalog of products and resources from multiple vendors to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of IT operations.

"FireScope is always looking for ways to better serve our customer base," said Mark Lynd, President of FireScope. "We wanted to offer IT professionals a single community where they could exchange ideas and products, as well as compare notes and draw from the best of the best."

Visitors to the FireScope Marketplace will find a wide variety of resources from JSR-168 compliant portlets to portal add-ons, industry best-practice assets and Web 2.0 components which enable IT organizations of all sizes and scopes to manage their enterprise with efficiency. Partnerships with third party companies that develop JSR-168 portlets offer current FireScope customers access to enhanced portlet functionality, while partnerships with best practice leaders and ITIL experts offer managers a unique, comprehensive resource for enterprise management.

Partners and current FireScope clients alike have the ability to create portlets to extend the core functionality of FireScope by utilizing the FireScope SDK, a resource available through the Marketplace. Developers can choose to offer the custom portlets for free or for a fee on the FireScope Marketplace by joining the FireScope reseller program.
