A Million Dollar View That Everyone Can Afford

Have you ever gone on vacation, experienced an amazing view (perhaps of the ocean or the mountains) and wondered to yourself what it would be like to own property with such a view? If you are like most people, you definitely have. But, unfortunately, once we see the price tag for such a view, we snap out of our dream and realize that it’s just simply out of our reach (at least for most of us!)

What if you could have that “million dollar” view in your IT life, but stay within your existing budget? That would be pretty great, wouldn’t it? Well, the good news is that you can. Here’s how.

If you are like most IT shops, you have lots of data and information scattered all over the place. You likely have SharePoint sites, spreadsheets, discovery tools, CMDBs, Visio diagrams, performance monitoring tools, change management tools, and more. In a lot of cases there is good data and information in those sources, but it’s hard to use. In fact, it’s likely difficult to make any decisions with those sources because you have to cobble different pieces of information together in real-time and then rationalize differences like naming conventions, etc. This is precisely what you don’t have time to do when you are trying to make a quick – but also accurate – decision or a complex action like making a change to a key application’s infrastructure.

But you’ve also likely spent a lot of time, money, and effort trying to make your existing knowledge tools, CMDBs, and asset repositories work so you don’t want to throw them away for yet another tool. Here’s the best part. You don’t have to.

With ITinvolve Knowledge Collaborator you can easily leverage all of the data and information you have in your existing systems. We help you bring that data and information together (either physically by importing it or logically by pointing to it) so you can have a truly “million dollar” view of all your existing data and information in one place.  And we organize your data and information in the context of what you are managing so it’s easy to find and use, whether it’s an application, a server, a database, a policy, a network device, or any other aspect of your IT environment. Watch this short video that goes into more detail on our innovative approach and how it works.

Our cloud-based service is built on the force.com platform so you know it’s secure, scalable, and high-performing. Force.com also makes it easy for you to import your existing data and information through bulk data loading as well as more real-time data exchange through web services and REST APIs. We can even hyperlink to your existing data sources.  Wherever your data lives, we make it easy for you to bring it all together and create that “million dollar” view in ITinvolve. But our cloud service is also affordable and quick to implement as well.  We can start with 1 or 2 of your key applications and bring together all of your existing data and information about them in a matter of a couple of days. Really. It’s that quick.

And when you have a comprehensive view of all your data and information in one place, your IT teams will be amazed at what you can do with it. In fact, it’s quite common for ITinvolve customers to say they have learned more about their environment in a couple of weeks than they have known in their entire time working for their current organization. And wouldn’t that be priceless?

In the next blog entry, I’ll explain how ITinvolve Knowledge Collaborator helps you clean up the data and information from your existing sources so you can trust it when making decisions or taking actions.
