Using the ISI Executive makes it easier for corporate management to identify areas where they can take actions to save money, better manage their infrastructure, and decrease their energy footprint
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
Infrastructure Solutions, Inc. (ISI), a leading provider of IT infrastructure assessment and optimization software products and services, announces the availability of ISI Executive Dashboard, top-level reporting on the health and efficiency of corporate information technology systems that highlights opportunities for improving the operational efficiency of data centers and minimizing operating, energy, and real estate costs.
ISI Snapshot, an industry trusted discovery and inventory application suite, collects almost 1,000 data points on the inventory and use of servers, CPU, memory, storage, and network devices in data centers or on corporate networks. The analysis and use of this type of data has historically been a highly technical job. Today, more customers than ever are interested in access to top-level views of the health and efficiency status of their data center operations. They are looking for ways to compare their IT systems to best practices to make strategic operational decisions on their data centers.
ISI has responded to this need by creating the ISI Executive Dashboard which provides increased analysis and summarization of all the Snapshot data collected into to a “single page” report, color-coded to provide a general health indicator and comparison with industry best practices. This allows IT assets–identified as operating below an industry best practices—to be flagged quickly for additional study and analysis.
The ISI Executive Dashboard increases the utility of the valuable data collected by Snapshot, making the health status of the data center easier to see and understand, while highlighting areas for improvement. These can then be prioritized for action, lowering overall operational costs and allowing for better utilization of existing infrastructure, including sever consolidation, improved hardware and storage management, vendor analysis, personnel re-assignment, server virtualization, and main frame usage. The industry best practices data was developed in conjunction with WinterGreen Research, a major industry analyst organization.
Industry best practices show that data center cost savings and energy savings are between 10-80 percent of costs, depending on the IT system component and can save companies–depending on size– from tens of thousands to millions of dollars.
“Customer demand for accessible and accurate health and efficiency data has increased significantly in the last few years. Companies are looking for ways to save money that won’t negatively impact business processes or customers,” said Willard (Bill) Cecchi, president of ISI. “Using the ISI Executive Dashboard to check the status of data centers, makes it easier for corporate management to identify areas where they can take actions to save money, better manage their infrastructure, and decrease their energy footprint while comparing their situation with industry best practices.”
Snapshot has been used to help public and private clients—across a wide range of industries—with IT security and performance optimization. To learn more about ISI’s Snapshot software or to request a demo, visit http://www.isiisi.com.
