About SMA Solutions

SMA Solutions is a privately-owned company based in Houston, Texas. Since our inception in 1980, SMA Solutions has expanded to include nine offices, multiple business partners and customers worldwide.

SMA Solutions was founded by a team of forward-thinking automation experts at NASA where we initially captured the attention of IT managers around the world with the release of our first automation solution, ‘The Scheduler’, which ran on mainframes. As the IT industry evolved, we continued to lead the way with the introduction of OpCon, the world’s first Windows-based, enterprise-wide automation solution that now supports every known operating system, application, platform and ERP system. OpCon supports more than 500 customers in 24 countries, both in the private and public sectors.

We work every day to continue to improve our workload automation solution, OpCon, and assist our customers with integrating and modernizing their organizations.

SMA Solutions believes that businesses should embrace digital transformation, including modernization and being bimodal. Bimodal businesses work to improve well-understood, predictable areas of their business and to solve new problems before they arise.

To align ourselves with that position, SMA Solutions now offers a cutting-edge predictive analytics solution, Ascern. Ascern is a highly flexible solution that can monitor virtually any data stream. It’s also data-agnostic, so it learns what’s normal for each stream and can alert administrators before anything abnormal happens.

We believe that our solutions should adapt to your business, not the other way around. We are in constant collaboration with our customers to ensure that our products and services are on target with our customer’s ever-changing business challenges and priorities.
