MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Symphony Teleca Corporation (STC), a global innovation and development services company, today announced the release of Symphony Marimba Client Automation (Symphony Marimba) v8.3, the first major release of the Marimba product suite under the Symphony Teleca brand. Since early 2013, STC has been providing full development and support activities for the Marimba products and the new version of Symphony Marimba is the most significant update to the product in seven years.
Enterprise customers around the world today rely on Marimba Client Automation technology as a critical solution to automate the entire lifecycle of desktops, laptops and client devices. Symphony Marimba v8.3 offers more than 20 new features and empowers IT admins with highly flexible and simplified automation tools to manage heterogeneous environments. The new release also allows Marimba to be offered as a platform, Marimba-as-a-Platform, to help administrators customize, extend and integrate any product with Marimba. Features that have long been regarded as the strengths of the product line, such as stability, consistency, availability and scalability, have also been accentuated and enhanced.
STC’s Product Line Management (PLM) Group currently develops, tests and supports the newly branded Marimba product, utilizing a talented team that has been developing the product for several years before being transitioned to the company. The PLM Group also provides maintenance contracting for Symphony Marimba and will make support agreements available for existing deployments of Marimba Client Automation beyond any previously announced obsolete date. This commitment will ensure the company’s customers’ investments are protected and will also allow them to remain on a proven solution path indefinitely.

The Client Advisory Board will play a central role in ensuring future Marimba versions continue to address customer needs.
