Ensim Updates Microsoft Enablement for Office365 CSP, Azure CSP, Windows Azure Pack, System Center/Hyper-V and Wave 16 Exchange, Lync/Skype for Business, SharePoint, and Dynamics, as well as Extended Active Directory Multi-Tenant Management

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/15 -- Ensim Corporation, provider of an end-to-end platform for service providers to monetize any offering with marketplace, subscription management, service catalog, provisioning, usage collection, and billing, today announced the availability of multiple updates for Microsoft cloud and datacenter based hosted applications and services.

Office365 CSP - In addition to support for Office365 Syndication and Vodafone GIG/Office 365, Ensim now supports Office365 Open with full end-to-end automation for bundled offerings with granular provision, billing, multi-level channel enablement and business analytics for sales, revenue, and cost management. In addition, Ensim is offering a specially priced quick launch program to enable go-to-market in as little as one week.

Azure - Ensim enables full control of the entire customer and order lifecycle, from automated sign up, sales team order automation, subscription management, usage collection, reporting, and billing for both reservation and hourly pay-per-use models.

Windows Azure Pack (WAP) - For service providers running SCVMM/Hyper-V for on-premise based IaaS offerings, Ensim works seamlessly with WAP to complete the automation requirements for offering, bundling and billing along with BI tools for granular usage and revenue/cost management.

System Center 2012 R2 - Ensim IaaS Manager 3.3 for System Center adds many new features such as multi-tier storage management, clustering, and support for geo-redundant datacenters, and pay-per-use hourly billing support leveraging SCOM monitoring for virtual data centers and virtual machines in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.

Wave 16 Support - With the latest version of Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, Lync/Skype for Business, and Dynamics soon to arrive, Ensim is prepared to continue its leadership role in being the first to offer support for the latest Microsoft products with automation connectors to enable the latest versions as they are released by Microsoft.

Ensim App Manager 2.0 - Building on its deep Active Directory management capabilities for enterprise deployments, Ensim has incorporated additional AD management functionality into its multi-tenant platform for both service providers and their customers. Service providers can connect any AD enabled application such as Accounting, CRM, ERP, etc. and automatically activate it for the customer to assign roles and users. Orders, provisioning, usage collection, and billing are fully automated and SSO is provided to the target applications from the Ensim portal.

Ensim Active Directory Sync Manager 2.3 - Ensim has also updated its AD sync tool with many new features that extend the customers ability to have their on-premise AD securely sync to and control their AD tenant on the service providers hosting platform. Fine grain control over sync schedules, users, and attributes as well as support for the latest encryption technologies are built in for maximum security.

"Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) increasingly require robust, integrated and flexible marketplace and orchestration software to deliver multi-tenant and hosted private cloud solutions that integrate with customers' existing IT infrastructure. Ensim's continued investment in enabling hybrid Active Directory deployments, Microsoft's unified communications portfolio and service management of Office365 and Microsoft Azure addresses the strong demand from CSPs who are looking for solutions that can assist them with launching new cloud services and new hybrid-cloud capabilities," said Scott Ottaway, vice president of services research at 451 Research.

"Ensim works closely with Microsoft to support their latest offerings and provide outstanding support for their growing portfolio of cloud technologies," said David Wippich, CEO, Ensim. "We are enthusiastic to enable service providers and enterprises around the world with a comprehensive solution to cost-effectively provide multi-tenant and dedicated offerings to their customers and users via self-service portals that take complex offerings and enable them for cloud service commerce."
