iTRACS Corporation, Inc., a global leader in Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and a Gartner 2011 Cool Vendor, and TDB Fusion, a European-based leader in IT management systems, process management, and integration, have announced a partnership agreement to address the growing need for comprehensive, seamless, enterprise-wide management of physical infrastructure.
iTRACS and TDB Fusion have teamed up to collaborate on an integrated solution for the effective management of IT physical infrastructure across the entire enterprise landscape.
“This solution enables organizations to integrate the management of the physical infrastructure – IT assets, facilities assets, and building management systems – in a more comprehensive systems management framework,” said Elizabeth Given, president and CEO of iTRACS. “The goal is to create the ‘seamless data center’ – a data center where there is a seamless orchestration of services and collaboration between IT, business units, facilities, and building management, all within a systems management context.”
“This orchestration is enhanced by TDB Fusion’s expertise in process efficiencies, improving IT’s responsiveness to the needs of the business,” said Colin Aurelius, CEO of TDB Fusion. “We’ll integrate iTRACS with the customer’s existing IT management systems and then use process management to optimize how people work within this converged environment. From a process perspective, people and technology will be aligned using shared information, workflows, and management tools, providing a single holistic view of the data center accessible by all stakeholders – IT department, the business units, facilities, building management, and C-level executives. The silos will go away.”
Leveraging the enterprise IT investment
The iTRACS/TDB Fusion solution will help organizations implement iTRACS Converged Physical Infrastructure Management® (CPIM®) within a systems management framework – enhanced by the workflow and process enablement capabilities of TDB Fusion’s Federos™ solution – to drive the democratization of critical IT data across all user constituencies. “This provides stakeholders with access to robust IT data so they can make insightful, informed decisions about power, services availability, and other challenges,” said Ms. Given. “Customers will be able to collaborate, automate workflows, and enable IT to work in a more effective and agile manner with the business.”
“We see the iTRACS CPIM® platform as central to the drive for global process automation within IT infrastructure,” said Mr. Aurelius. “Customers will be able to integrate iTRACS into their IT Services Management systems, optimized by Federos™, to create a more holistic, automated approach to physical infrastructure management. We’re excited about collaborating with iTRACS on this next frontier.”
