Micro Focus is pleased and excited to announce the launch of Data Center Automation (DCA) 2019.11. Featuring new integrations with our Operations Bridge platform as well as updated core content, DCA 2019.11 packs a powerful punch of new features and updated core capabilities.

Starting with the new Operations Bridge integration, DCA can now feed compliance and vulnerability data into Operations Bridge Manager (OBM). Operations teams can use this information to prioritize and remediate issues based on service impact and severity, resulting in improved MTTR and reduced downtime.

So how does this work? Inside of DCA 2019.11 there is a new "Integrations" menu. From this menu you will enter the settings to connect DCA to your OBM. Once connected, you setup DCA to scan the same resource group(s) that contain the services you are monitoring with OpsBridge.  When the scans are complete, DCA will automatically import compliance and vulnerability scan results into OBM. The scan results will now appear in OBM along with the existing KPI information for services that you are managing. With the scan results from DCA included with the KPI information already in OBM, it makes it easy for Operations personnel to quickly prioritize and remediate compliance and vulnerability issues at the service level. Take a look at the screenshots below to see some of the detailed information that DCA imports into OBM.

In addition to the OBM integration, DCA 2019.11 also features a new platform integration for SUSE Customer Center (SCC). This integration allows patch scanning, remediation, and metadata import for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLUS) systems which are connected to SCC to receive updates. Along with this new integration, DCA 2019.11 SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 15 for vulnerability and risk management workflows.

With these latest features, DCA extends its already broad base of third-party integrations. To see how DCA can help you take a more proactive approach to securing your datacenter please visit our partner portal.
