Lanamark Suite 2012 Delivers Services-Oriented Analytics
Lanamark Inc., a global provider of agent-less, Services-Oriented Analytics software for IT solution providers delivering cross-vendor desktop and data center solutions across physical and virtual infrastructure, today announced availability of Lanamark Suite 2012.
The new release allows IT solution providers to profile IT assets and leverage Multipoint Data Access technology to accelerate sales cycles and lower service delivery costs by streaming encrypted data into their public or private clouds for analysis. This technology also facilitates data access in completely locked down environments so that analysis can be performed on client premises. Lanamark Suite 2012 employs Asset Intelligence to normalize and enrich raw IT asset data with actionable business information and enables unified analysis, segmentation and dependency mapping for applications, users and machines. It also extends agent-less data collection beyond Microsoft Windows, Linux, NetWare, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere to IBM AIX, HP-UX and Oracle Solaris.
“Lanamark Suite enables Fujitsu Technology Solutions to deliver workplace and server optimization services through rigorous analysis of users, applications and the underlying desktop and server infrastructure,” said Thomas Hillmann, head of Fujitsu Center of Excellence for CEMEA&I. “By combining agent-less data collection, centralized data aggregation in the Fujitsu Cloud and unified IT infrastructure analytics, Lanamark enables us to help customers make strategic IT investments while reducing project risks, personnel requirements and timelines. Lanamark provides us with an integrated, services-centric software platform that allows us to accelerate delivery of desktop and data centre optimization services to companies of all sizes worldwide.”
Lanamark Suite 2012 consists of:
- Lanamark Explorer for agent-less, enterprise-scale instrumentation of applications, users and machines across physical and virtual infrastructure.
- Lanamark Central with Multipoint Data Access for on-site data analysis or multi-client and multi-site data aggregation in a public or private cloud managed by the IT solution provider.
- Lanamark IQ with Asset Intelligence for normalization of raw data and enrichment of hardware and software assets with contextual information such as age, warranty and power consumption.
- Lanamark Studio for unified IT asset analysis, segmentation, dependency mapping and reporting automation with plug-ins for Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010.
- Lanamark Portal for web-based IT service management and collaboration.
Lanamark enables IT solution providers to partner with Lanamark through its services-centric VAccelerate Partner Program and use the Lanamark Suite Services Edition to accelerate pre-sales, professional services and managed services engagements. The program provides services-oriented training, enablement and support, allowing partners to develop, enhance and differentiate cross-vendor IT solutions and services in areas such as desktop and server virtualization planning, virtual infrastructure migration and optimization, software and hardware standardization, licensing optimization and compliance, OS migration and hardware lifecycle planning.
