iQAnalytics delivers scenario based business intelligence focused on reducing software license costs
Today at Microsoft’s World Partner Conference, iQuate, the automated IT discovery, inventory and measurement specialists announced the managed release of iQAnalytics.
iQAnalytics introduces the concept of Actionable Intelligence – Business Intelligence data formatted to assist users to identify the correct actions needed to resolve specific business issues. It is designed to be used in conjunction with iQSonar – iQuate’s flagship automated inventory, discovery and measurement platform.
iQAnalytics performs deployment analysis on the detailed inventory, deployment and usage data delivered by iQSonar to help users identify incorrect or inefficient deployments for specific software licenses. This data is targeted at common licensing scenarios and clearly demonstrates the impact of changes over time as well as highlighting those areas where changes will deliver real savings and efficiencies.
“We already deliver the most accurate and complete inventory and deployment data from the largest networks”, comments Jason Keogh, iQuate founder and CTO. “Our customers value the insight that this gives them, but the introduction of iQAnalytics and its concept of Actionable Intelligence, takes this to the next level by helping customers identify areas that can deliver “quick wins” in specific licensing contexts.”
The first release of iQSonar will support Microsoft SQL Server, Virtualization, Oracle and licensing scenarios.
“The recent changes to SQL Server licensing may cause some initial confusion”, adds Donnie Hamlett, Microsoft Licensing Specialist, iQuate “but we believe that the combination of iQSonar and iQAnalytics delivers easy to understand clarity to customers while offering Microsoft partners a unique opportunity to develop new business opportunities”
