ITBI™ – who uses what and for how much?
SMT Data has developed a unique software solution that collects, aggregates, and processes enormous amounts of technical data from the company’s IT-infrastructure. Conceptually it is Business Intelligence for IT – we call it ITBI.
We deliver services, knowledge and tools to help you manage your data center more efficiently; monitor your outsourcing providers and link the use of IT directly to the company’s bottom line and development potentials. For 25 years we have supplied fact-based optimization:
Optimize IT infrastructure utilization and performance.
Link IT resource consumption and IT costs to business activity
Control outsourcing providers and optimize outsourcing costs.
Connect application development to IT operations – DevOps (demand, cost etc..)
Consolidate assets and balancing load (for M&A, virtualization etc.).
Reduce time spent on analyzing and reporting.
The collection, selection and transformation of the technical data is governed by more than 200.000 rules and policies that embody SMT Data’s deep knowledge of how these data can be used and understood. A fully automated process transforms terabytes of unstructured technical data to just gigabytes of information in a well-structured data warehouse.
The data can be easily analyzed either using the extensive set of ITBI standard reports/analysis or by developing new reports using the standard end-user BI tool. The technical reporting works ‘out of the box’ and creates immediate value by identifying capacity, performance and demand optimization potential.
