SMI 15 Answering the Challenges of Communicating the Value of IT
Burlington, MA, March 1- 2015: Westbury today announced the availability of its next generation IT Business Analytics platform to help organizations measure, improve and communicate the value of IT. The new SMI Suite delivers a comprehensive platform for automated data integration and IT business analytics that allows IT organizations to easily access and combine any data from any data source without managing and maintaining a complex data warehouse.
Industry analysts predicted some time ago that the transactional view of IT is no longer sufficient for IT organizations to stay relevant. Instead IT should be able to communicate their value by means of metrics and reports the business cares about. Westbury is enabling IT organizations to confront their multifaceted challenges by implementing a robust IT business analytics strategy that turns operational data into business value dashboards.
“Our architecture has been redesigned to industrialize the complete process from access to operational data to analysis,” says Jane Johnson, CEO of Westbury. “Our Customers made significant investments to run their IT operations, but they still couldn’t prove and communicate the value in a way the business would understand it and at an affordable cost. They are ditching the labor intensive and costly data warehouse to use SMI Suite and still get a complete picture of the business.”
Hit the Ground Running
SMI Suite comes with a rich library of pre-built integrations (solutions) and startup reports and dashboards allowing valuable and immediate insight into the role of IT in its organizations’ success.
The new offerings standardize data access from any data source in the enterprise environment providing a comprehensive view of business processes. The new Suite comes with pre-configured solutions for common HP software products, including HP Service Manager, HP Asset Manager, HP PPM and HP uCMDB. More solutions will be added to the platform in the coming months.
As part of today’s news, Westbury also adopts the IT4IT Open Standard. The IT4IT Open Standard provides vendors, service providers and businesses with a common blueprint to guide all products and solutions for interoperability, compliance and business insight.
The new SMI Suite will be showcased at HDI Conference & Expo, which will take place from March 24-26 in Las Vegas, NV. Westbury also organizes webinars during the month of April to educate customers and partners on the new capabilities.
Founded in 1998, Westbury is a leading provider of business value reporting solutions for IT Organizations and represents enterprise customers around the globe.
Its SMI Suite is an integrated business value reporting platform that transforms data into meaningful information and improves processes and performance across the IT value chain.
