ISI’s Snapshot automates capturing changes to a company’s infrastructure so critical systems, such as backup and disaster recovery, are always using the latest configuration.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 26, 2012
Infrastructure Solutions, Inc. (ISI), a leading provider of IT infrastructure assessment and optimization software products and services, announces that Snapshot now offers expanded data export formats. The enhanced format capability allows individual companies, or companies offering managed services, to quickly and efficiently integrate real-time IT component inventory and configuration data with an extensive range of customized IT management, design and planning tools.
The expanded export options improve the ability to transfer and use the data captured by Snapshot as part of the automatic detection of infrastructure changes. This versatility helps reduce operational risks by making it simple for users to incorporate Snapshot’s real-time data into company management tools including business continuity, disaster recovery, and organizational planning processes. IT professionals have the option to run Snapshot to collect the IT infrastructure inventory data as needed or to set up an automated schedule that best meets their needs. The expanded formats can be leveraged by companies to export the data for use in a broad range of IT maintenance, management, risk mitigation and planning functions.
The new and enhanced data reporting formats include: MS Excel (.xls), Text – Tab Delimited (.txt), CSV – Comma Delimited (.csv), XML Spreadsheet (.xml), Web Page (.htm), Unicode Tex (.txt,) and DBF2 – dBase II (.dbf).
“Companies want the security of knowing that reliable business continuity, disaster recovery, and backup plans are in place should they need them, and that those plans include all changes to the infrastructure. Relying on records that require manual updating has proven ineffective. ISI’s Snapshot enables this to be automated so critical systems, such as backup and disaster recovery, are always using the latest configuration. Recognizing many companies outsource these functions, ISI is committed to partnering with companies to meet these needs and offers a powerful tool set that makes it easier to keep critical IT system tasks current,” said Willard (Bill) Cecchi, President of ISI. “We are proud to introduce another new and enhanced feature in the Snapshot Software Suite to help IT service companies grow their business while reducing costs for the clients they serve.”
