AnMed Health Achieves Considerable IT Cost Savings with GoAnywhere MFT

Posted by on Thursday, 12 February, 2015

Linoma Software, a leader in secure enterprise file storage and transfer software, is pleased to announce a new case study featuring one of its customers has been published on www.GoAnywhere.com/casestudies. Linoma Software and AnMed Health worked together to write the case study, which describes how a GoAnywhere enterprise managed file transfer solution helped AnMed Health achieve considerable savings on Data Center operations.

AnMed Health was looking to replace outdated systems and streamline processes in the Data Center in an initiative aimed at eliminating the need for third shift staffing. File transfers were identified as a top priority to address an unreliable FTP server, lack of redundancy in qualified staff, and missing support for SFTP and PGP.

GoAnywhere was selected by AnMed Health to update file transfer processes and it has resulted in a significant savings in staff hours. The Data Center alone saw a 500 hour reduction in programming, operations and network staff. This was in addition to virtually eliminating the need for a Network Engineer to troubleshoot transfers.

With this success, AnMed Health continued to explore opportunities to utilize GoAnywhere. This led to further time savings through insurance claim and payment processing, and cost savings from eliminating antiquated green bar reporting.

GoAnywhere Developer Celebrates 20 Year Anniversary

Posted by on Tuesday, 9 December, 2014

20 year anniversary - logoLinoma Software, the developer of GoAnywhere software, is celebrating our 20 year anniversary helping organizations around the world to automate their IT processes and protect sensitive data. The company will commemorate this milestone anniversary with the much anticipated unveiling of their new corporate headquarters, groundbreaking new software releases and promotional events throughout the next twelve months.

“From the beginning, our goal has been to provide great products at affordable prices that are backed with unparalleled customer support and service,” said Linoma Software founder, Bob Luebbe. “We attribute our success over the last 20 years to this simple company philosophy. It encompasses all that we do.”

Looking Back: A Modest Beginning

Husband and wife team, Bob and Christy Luebbe, started Linoma out of their home in 1994 to provide IT consulting and contract programming services to area businesses. The concept was simple, offer experienced IT talent for affordable rates.

By late 1995, the Luebbes had hired several consultants to service their expanding customer base which included Fortune 500 companies such as Union Pacific, First Data Resources and Hewlett-Packard. They also officially opened their first office in Omaha, Nebraska to offer offsite programming services to out-of-state customers.

Around 1996, Bob had an idea for a product that addressed the challenge of converting legacy IBM RPG code to the new RPG IV (ILE RPG) language. During his off hours, Luebbe built the Convert to ILE RPG software, named it CVTILERPG and released it on a programming list server as a downloadable file. This proved to be a move that was ahead of its time as most software for IBM systems was distributed by mail and installed using cumbersome tapes.

20 year anniversary - Bob LuebbeCVTILERPG became an overnight success as a convenient-to-install and affordable utility, which paved the way for Linoma to evolve into a software company. Many of the original users of CVTILERPG (now called RPG Toolbox) are still loyal customers today.

Finding ways to make tasks easier and more efficient has always been the core of Linoma Software’s approach to software development. From creating graphical interfaces for the AS/400 in 1997 with Surveyor/400, to the debut of Transfer Anywhere in 2002, to encrypting databases with Crypto Complete in 2007, Luebbe and his growing R&D team continued to innovate and streamline processes for the IBM i. As new products were developed and released, Linoma put an emphasis on affordability and five-star support, which the company is known for.

The release of GoAnywhere Director in early 2008 was a turning point for the company. Quickly becoming the flagship product for Managed File Transfer and secure data exchange, the multi-platform software delivered full automation, encryption and detailed audit trails for file transfers. Following shortly after in 2009, the introduction of GoAnywhere Services expanded the product offering to support secure file services using FTP, FTPS, SFTP and HTTP protocols. GoAnywhere Gateway joined the product suite in 2010 with enhanced forward and reverse proxy to protect files in the DMZ.

Looking Forward: Success through Innovation

As the GoAnywhere software suite continues to grow and evolve, the company has grown as well. Linoma Software has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of top growing companies in Nebraska for the past two years. Their customer base consists of over 3,000 installations worldwide including government entities, large corporations and mid-sized companies. Boasting over a 98% customer retention rate, Linoma Software continues to win customers over through innovation, affordable product offerings and responsive product enhancements.

According to Luebbe, “Several of our customers have been with us since the beginning. They love the products and rave about our support. We’re thrilled to be celebrating 20 years and it’s because our customers truly appreciate what we do. Without their trust and support, we wouldn’t be here. It’s that simple, and we are truly grateful.”

Managed File Transfer Processes Improved With GoAnywhere Director 4.6

Posted by on Monday, 2 June, 2014

Omaha, NE – May 30, 2014

Linoma Software places a premium on developing enhancements which streamline Managed File Transfer (MFT) processes for its customers.  GoAnywhere DirectorTM version 4.6 is a prime example, adding a wealth of new features that further reduce the effort needed to set up and administer file transfers.  This update also includes greater control over file transfer jobs with improved debugging, job queue management, and automatic encryption of files at rest.

Efficient Administration

With version 4.6, batch jobs can now be organized and prioritized within their own custom job queues. For instance, customers can assign a higher priority to certain jobs in order to meet their service level agreements with select trading partners. Jobs can also be executed sequentially using single-threaded job queues to ensure that file transfers occur in the order they were submitted.

Director 4.6 logoManipulating groups of data is even easier in 4.6. For instance, the values from a database table can be modified to meet a vendor’s requirements when written to an XML, CSV, fixed-width, or Microsoft Excel file.  In turn, before being imported into a database system, the values in a document can be read and altered to meet the application’s requirements.

Additionally, file monitors can be set up to easily scan SFTP, FTP and FTPS servers to execute a project workflow when a new, updated or deleted file is detected. With a step-by-step wizard, you can indicate the folders to scan, the file pattern and the frequency.  If no files are found on the targeted server for the time period, GoAnywhere can alert personnel quickly with email notifications.

Greater Control

While GoAnywhere Director makes it easy to build complex file transfer projects, there are occasions when a user needs a deeper level of control and visibility into the steps being performed.  This newest release introduces a debugging tool for project workflows.  The new debugger allows an administrator to step through tasks and view or modify the value of variables after each task has executed.

One of the more significant enhancements in version 4.6 is the ability to run remote commands on SSH enabled servers. The new “Execute SSH Commands” task allows administrators to pass command parameters using variables, and the output from the command can be directed to the job log or an output file. As an example, this new task can be used to automate software installations, perform upgrades and other admin functions on Linux and UNIX servers.

Improved Security

Security continues to be a top priority for Linoma Software.  The release of GoAnywhere Director 4.6 brings with it the ability to set up folders that secure data at rest using automatic AES-256 encryption. This helps to provide compliance with PCI, HIPAA and other strict data security regulations.

A complete list of enhancements can be found in the release notes on the GoAnywhere Director website.
