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 [email protected].

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
