Tidal: A History of Motion, Innovation, and Excellence
This Is How We Roll ...
1980s – 2000s
THE GOLDEN YEARS
Tidal Enterprise Scheduler established a leadership position in distributed workload automation, becoming the automation tool of choice for orchestrating complex cross-platform workloads in the post-mainframe world. The software quickly gained a global reputation for being both easy-to-use (no scripting required) and exceptionally robust – ideal for helping enterprises take advantage of new opportunities in a rapidly-changing business technology landscape. Tidal continues to demonstrate agility, scalability, reliability, and enterprise-class performance, delivering business value to 700+ customers worldwide. Dozens of pre-built, ready-to-run integrations to popular environments and applications ensure the widest possible support of fast-growing, multi-system business workloads and processes.
CISCO ACQUIRES TIDAL
Cisco bought the world's finest IT automation tool, Tidal, and renamed it Cisco Workload Automation (CWA). CWA became an important member of Cisco's broad IT portfolio offered to enterprise customers worldwide.
STA GROUP ACQUIRES TIDAL
Seeking to hand Tidal over to an innovation company that can continue the software's legacy of automation excellence, Cisco turned to its trusted partner, STA Group. STA Group is a Chicago-based technology leader in digital automation with world-class expertise in big data, cloud, and IoT. STA Group acquired the Tidal platform from Cisco in November 2017, renamed it Tidal Workload Automation, and launched an exciting and aggressive innovation roadmap that STA is calling, The Next Wave in Workload Automation. With more than 200 engineers building tomorrow's technology, STA Group has announced big plans for Tidal in terms of performance improvements and new game-changing features.
STA Group announced the CustomerFirst Program. CustomerFirst is an attitude and a way of doing business that helps elevate the success of Tidal customers and maximizes the value of their Tidal investments. It gives customers a direct and powerful voice about the product and its future in an open, collaborative partnership.
McNEES AS CEO
STA Group appointed Rick McNees as CEO of the Tidal Workload Automation business. McNees joins the STA Group team from previous leadership positions at IBM, Platinum Technology, and Micro Focus. "Rick brings unparalleled executive leadership, a wealth of enterprise technology experience, and a passion for innovation that will drive the next wave in workload automation," said David Dillon, Senior Managing Director, STA Group.
BARLOW IN EMEA
STA Group appointed Mark Barlow as Managing Director, EMEA. Based on London, Barlow, an experienced sales executive, is driving sales, customer, and partner relationships in the EMEA region.
NORTHEAST USER GROUP MEETING - BOSTON
STA Group held a Northeast Tidal User Group Meeting in the Boston area – the first of many local Tidal User Group Meetings to be held in 2018 and beyond. As one attendee says, "terrific event, loved the content and appreciated the chance to share ideas with other Tidal users."
TIDAL'S NORTHEAST USER GROUP – A DAY OF INFORMATION-SHARING AND INSIGHT!
At the Tidal Northeast User Group meeting outside of Boston, Tidal users mingled with Tidal product and engineering leadership to compare notes, share best practices, and discuss strategies for maximizing the value of the Tidal investment within an IT portfolio.
The Tidal team – including our Chief Architect – was on hand to share our 2018 Product Roadmap, walk through our aggressive release schedule, and open up the floor to questions and answers about STA Group's forward plans for the automation platform.
We talked features, technology, and user tips. Customers debated strategies and shared learnings. All in all, an insightful day.
A special THANK YOU to our gracious Host, one of Tidal's customers in the Boston region!
MIDWEST USER GROUP MEETING - CHICAGO
STA Group held a Tidal User Group Meeting in the Chicago area. The dialog focused on the migration to the Cloud and the use of Tidal's broad library of pre-built, ready-to-go adapters to extend complex workflows orchestrated by Tidal. From ERP to business analytics to Big Data, today's ever-expanding workflows are driven by the business – but it's the IT folks who make them happen!
IN CHICAGO, THE USER GROUP MEETING WAS ALL ABOUT NETWORKING AND THE SHARING OF TIPS ABOUT HOW TO GET EVEN MORE OUT OF TIDAL ...
Special thanks to our Chicago host!
USER GROUP MEETING - NEW YORK
Our User Group Meeting in Manhattan was lively, informative, and insightful – just what you'd expect when you get a bunch of Tidal experts in the same room! We ended the day at a local pub where the conversation continued with the aid of some adult drinks. The meeting formally ended at 2 pm but we continued sharing Tidal tips and best practices until 5 pm. Special focus was on moving applications from on-prem to the Cloud – how to do it swiftly, efficiently, and with minimal risk.
SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR NEW YORK HOST !!!
