Vendor announces 2013 version of its hybrid IT service management solution

FrontRange has announced the release of Heat 2013, the updated version of the service management solution designed to simultaneously support on-premise, multi-tenant cloud and/or hybrid deployments from a single, unified platform.

The 2013 version includes a new user interface, the ability to post messages directly to specified service teams, through the use of the new Social Groups, and My Watch List, a feature which provides one-click access to recent work or accessed items to improve service analyst's productivity. The new capabilities also include Cloud Connect, a customisable UI, new web services APIs, IE 10 support and language localisation, with German, Dutch and Portuguese now supported, in addition to English, French and Spanish.

To help customers easily migrate to and/or from a cloud or on-premise deployment, Heat 2013 features a configuration management tool for simplified setup.

"FrontRange is committed to rapid and ongoing innovation and the development of our Hybrid platform is another example of how our product development roadmap responds to current industry trends and customer needs," says FrontRange CTO, Udo Waibel. "Heat allows customer application configurations to seamlessly migrate between cloud and/or on-premise delivery to provide customers the flexibility of choice, advanced capabilities and complete end-to-end service management offerings."

Heat 2013 will be generally available from the end of May.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
