Blazent Launches "Closed-Loop Data Quality" Initiative to Enhance the Impact of Leading IT Service Management Platforms

BURLINGAME, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Blazent, the leader in IT analytics, announces a breakthrough initiative called "Closed-Loop Data Quality" that will amplify the value of leading IT service management platforms and enhance the return on investment for large IT initiatives.

For over a decade, Blazent solutions have helped large organizations optimize their IT infrastructure and services by providing powerful IT analytics to support confident decisions. As a result, Blazent has helped customers eliminate over $250 million in operational costs and successfully manage over $50 billion in managed services contracts. The Blazent solution is unparalleled in its flexibility to integrate and reconcile any electronic data source from both commercial and custom systems. Combined with Blazent's audit and analysis capabilities, IT can achieve the most complete and accurate view of their end-to-end environment.

Blazent's Closed-Loop Data Quality initiative combines the robust analytics and data quality capabilities of Blazent with the process and workflow of leading IT service management platforms to close data quality gaps that often exist in configuration management databases (CMDBs) and asset repositories. When addressed properly, improved data quality levels can deliver many tangible benefits, including the following customer examples:

  • Quicker Outage Restoration (90% reduction in engineering hours spent addressing outages)
  • Elimination of Redundant Systems & Devices (15% reduction in global endpoint inventory)
  • Less Reharvesting of Data (5,000 manual hours eliminated by a single automated inventory audit)
  • Improved CMDB Confidence & User Adoption (30% improvement in CMDB data accuracy)
  • Better Decisions Based on Accurate Data (5% reduction in total IT asset costs).

The integration of Blazent with popular service management platforms ensures that large IT organizations are operating with the best possible information, and when discrepancies are identified, they can be quickly routed and resolved using the ITIL-based workflow specific to the service management platform in use.

"Blazent is delivering a unique and much needed contribution to the service management marketplace with its Closed-Loop Data Quality initiative," said Dennis Drogseth, Vice President at Enterprise Management Associates. "While many CMDB vendors talk about configuration item (CI) reconciliation, none provide the distinctive value that Blazent can in consolidating and reconciling trusted-source data based on analytics rather than just assumptions. This value can also extend to many other use cases, any one of which can significantly help IT optimize both its operational and management toolset efficiencies."

Blazent's Closed-Loop Data Quality initiative will include out-of-the-box integration solutions with the leading service management platforms as well as partnerships with the leading IT consulting firms who are advising the clients on these systems. "The integration of Blazent with the leading service management systems will be a home run for our joint customers," said Gary Oliver, CEO of Blazent. "For over 10 years, Blazent has delivered the highest level of IT analytics and data quality to help our customers reduce costs, eliminate risk, and improve overall service delivery. With this new initiative, our innovative technology can be leveraged to enhance the value of leading service management platforms to create an environment of closed-loop data quality."

Blazent's integration solutions and partnerships will begin to be announced later this month. For more information, contact Blazent at 855-282-8571 or info@blazent.com.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
