IT Business Intelligence for Servers (ITBI™ for Servers) supports capacity management and performance analysis for Windows, Unix and Linux servers. ITBI gathers CPU, Memory, Disk and Network capacity and performance data via an agentless collector program using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Secure Shell (SSH) connections.
ITBI for Servers makes it possible to obtain a total overview by collecting capacity management and performance data across large installations with many servers no matter what the underlying platforms are (physical servers, Hyper V, VM Ware, Linux, zLinux, cloud, etc.).
More than a technical tool, ITBI for Servers is an advanced business intelligence analytics tool that allows customers to analyse and understand the data in order to reduce capacity related costs, improve performance and improve availability, for example by identifying rightsizing potential.
ITBI includes extensive standard reports and a rich end user tool for building own reports, allowing customers to quickly identify cost drivers, rightsizing potential, performance bottlenecks and changes that have impacted cost or quality of service. The technical data can be enriched with business dimensions, allowing the customer to create transparency into the relationship between capacity costs and applications, business units or business activities.
ITBI ensures clear fact-based communication between IT operations and the rest of the organization including software development, IT finance, vendor management, and business units. For outsourced customers, ITBI provides a unique ability to understand and optimize capacity costs and quality of service.
ITBI is normally delivered as a cloud-based solution – ITBI as a Service – but can also be installed on a Windows server in the customer’s environment.
