CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Adaptivity, The IT Blueprint Company, announced an expansion to the Blueprint4IT Lifecycle Suite™ with the launch of its Visualization Studio™ software. This is the fourth component of the suite that creates dynamic, living blueprints of a company's application deployment topology.
Adaptivity's Blueprint4IT™ software supports IT transformation, including data center evolution, application portfolio optimization, and cloud enablement. Its Visualization Studio™ software's forensic discovery allows companies to:
Reduce time to implementation with fact-based, accurate blueprints of the current IT environment
Mitigate risks of the unknown application and infrastructure interdependencies
Decrease resource requirements through automated discovery and analytics
"Cloud computing has resulted in many enterprises reformulating their strategies and approaches to delivering IT services," said Donna Scott, Gartner VP and Distinguished Analyst. "IT Transformation has to start with a tops-down approach so that the business drivers are addressed and everyone stays on the same page. Tight alignment between the business and IT as well as a bottoms-up, factual collection of application and infrastructure data as a baseline is required before you can begin your transformation."
To support IT transformation, Adaptivity starts with its Visualization Studio software to blueprint the current state of a customer's applications, including the supporting infrastructure. The lifecycle continues from the bottom-up approach of infrastructure blueprints to a top-down alignment of IT to the business. Lastly, the software designs the optimal fit-for-purpose infrastructure deployment for each application. Target deployment options include traditional IT infrastructure as well as private, public and hybrid cloud options.
"Enterprise customers have many IT tools and tons of data, but still many unanswered questions. What are all the applications running in my data center and on what infrastructure? What are my app interdependencies? What apps are suitable for cloud?" said Matt Barrington, COO of Adaptivity. "Visualization Studio answers these questions in an elegant way by using a customer's existing IT tools and creating a 'living blueprint' of their Application DNA so customers have accurate, fact-based information to drive their IT transformations."
Plan with precision for the changing demands on IT delivery. Visualization Studio™ is available immediately for distribution.
