Virtualisation has revolutionised the datacenter and many IT organisations have selected VMware’s industry leading solutions built on VMware vSphere and vCloud as their preferred platform. Service Providers are now armed with an agile platform that can be quickly aligned to changing business and IT needs and can dramatically improve the availability and typical provisioning times being reduced from weeks to hours.
“Biomni aspires to role of ‘portal of portals,’ due to proven ability to integrate with other solutions. Biomni has been focused primarily on service provisioning and cataloguing a la ITIL rather than service level management or outsourcing governance per se.”

However realising these productivity and cost gains can be difficult to achieve if the business ‘consumer’ doesn’t know where or how to consume these services easily, or worse still, if they don’t even know that you provide these services at all. Your customers will very quickly find these services elsewhere and ultimately consume an external, non-supported Cloud service and expect you to support it. The net result is even more complexity, more non-standard IT services and increased support costs.
Here at Biomni we recognise this common problem and we ‘bridge’ that gap between VM consumer and VMware platform. Front Office provides a secure portal for administrators, developers and business users to raise new service requests for VMware environments. Additionally, consumers can manage specific cloud and IT resources that enable IT organisations to deliver services that can be configured to their lines of business in a self-service catalogue.
By dramatically simplifying the provisioning of these services, and close integration with the VMware environment, Front Office enables IT to provision complete and operationally ready infrastructure without worrying about the physical configuration of hardware. IT can standardise VMware based IT service offerings and make these available to groups of customers or indeed all.
Orchestrate your provisioning
Orchestrate the provisioning of your software-defined data center services with speed and ease.
Enable customers to self-manage
Customers can self-manage their own VMware environments in an abstracted, fit for purpose portal with automated service delivery and change management.
Standardise server builds
Standardise server builds and service offerings that are available to the business to eliminate non-standards and/or rouge VMs.
Tight integration with vCloud, vCAC, vSphere & vCenter
Enables fast server deployment, moves/changes and other automated tasks.
Merge Compute, Storage and Networking
Merge Compute, Storage and Networking with other non-VMware service offerings, like applications, DRaaS, etc. to radically simplify the consumption of bundled service offerings.
Isolate multiple customers organisations
Isolate multiple customers organisations through multi-tenancy, group users into tenants that can be determined as a business unit, division or separate companies. Enable each tenant with independent Active Directory/LDAP authentication, unique theme/corporate brand, specific service offerings.
Add the vital layer of governance
Add the vital layer of governance and compliance to the consumption of VMware services with business approval and technical validation workflow. Leverage Front Office’s ITIL V3 capabilities to add a ‘lite framework’ to your Cloud service portfolio.
