MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--BDNA, the IT Genome Company™, announces the IT Genome Center, a suite of enterprise products and services purpose-built to eliminate IT waste. The IT Genome Center is powered by Technopedia™, the world’s first comprehensive catalog of IT products, available on demand at TheITGenome.com.
“I’ve seen big, strategic decisions made without the basic knowledge of what technology is in place, what can be let go and where to invest”
Advancing the company’s IT Genome strategy, (see today’s related announcement, “BDNA Unveils IT Genome Strategy”), BDNA introduces:
Technopedia – World’s First IT “Encyclopedia”
Technopedia is the IT Genome encyclopedia. Containing almost 800,000 market data points on nearly 200,000 IT products, Technopedia is the largest and most complete independent catalog of hardware and software data.
“Technopedia and The IT Genome Center showcase BDNA’s extensive industry content,” said Constantin Delivanis, CEO of BDNA and co-founder of Sand Hill Group. “Mapping the DNA of business – the IT Genome – shows businesses what they’re made of.”
The IT Genome Center – Enterprise DNA Mapping
According to industry analysts, 80 percent of IT spending goes toward internal costs and only 20 percent to growth. Built on Technopedia, The IT Genome Center can help CIOs to eliminate 75 percent of IT waste and free budget for innovation.
“I’ve seen big, strategic decisions made without the basic knowledge of what technology is in place, what can be let go and where to invest,” explained Barry Weber, president of T3 Dynamics LLC and a former CIO with more than 20 years of industry experience. “BDNA gives enterprises a complete and accurate picture of their IT DNA so they can make the right decision, the first time.”
The IT Genome Center has three core components:
BDNA Discover™ combines agent-less, high-speed discovery, verification technology and corporate ownership information, to create a trusted, complete record of IT assets, delivering transparency and insight into the IT behind the business.
BDNA Normalize™ transforms raw data, consisting of hardware and software information from various enterprise discovery tools, into actionable information, to highlight waste and other inefficiencies.
BDNA Enrich™ aligns current market data with discovered data to give organizations the complete information required to support strategic initiatives including green IT, data center consolidation, upgrades or license compliance.
TheITGenome.com – Gateway to Technopedia
BDNA presents The IT Genome Center and Technopedia at TheITGenome.com, an online portal providing on-demand access to the world’s largest catalog of IT information, free basic discovery tools and specialized content and services.
