ONALASKA, Wis., March 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WI Indianhead Technical College Senior Director of IT, Jim Dahlberg, recently adopted AristotleInsight and saved $100,000 as a result of the software implementation. In this case, using metrics to manage higher education computing resources paid off big for more than IT security.
AristotleInsight, flagship software from Sergeant Laboratories, offers data metrics that can help IT directors understand how their resources are being used. With sophisticated data metrics from AristotleInsight, directors can smartly manage IT resources and processes to reduce their overall costs.
At WI Indianhead Technical College, Dahlberg is responsible for 2,400 endpoints. Prior to implementing AristotleInsight, Dahlberg had to rely on guesswork, past processes, and his personal opinion to make decisions about IT resource management, such as when to refresh desktops. The data AristotleInsight offers allowed Dahlberg to save money immediately while reducing the guesswork associated with IT resource management.
"I am looking at $100,000 savings in refreshing new computers because of low use. In the past we would auto refresh a desktop after 5 years. I am now reevaluating that decision," Dahlberg said.
AristotleInsight measures IT processes and delivers metrics and data on realtime system usage. This helps busy IT directors manage their IT, risk, and security using hard data and facts instead of guesswork. IT directors rely on AristotleInsight to make informed purchasing decisions, understand and prove regulation compliance, track exposure to known vulnerabilities, make cyber security decisions, and much more.
Speaking of the need for this software, Sergeant Laboratories CEO, Eric Anderholm, commented, "IT is clouded by confusion. No one has the data they need to make informed IT decisions. At Sergeant Laboratories, we realized using data and metrics to manage IT processes would be equally as valuable for saving money on assets, as it would be for understanding vulnerabilities or detecting advanced persistent threats. Our clients, with the help of AristotleInsight, are proving that it works."
