IBM partners with BDNA to underpin IT optimisation services for customers worldwide

BDNA provides continuous insight and analysis for Office of the CIO
(PresseBox) (Brussels, ) BDNA Corporation, the leading provider of IT infrastructure insight and analysis solutions, and IBM Belgium have reached an agreement for a multinational procurement relationship. IBM Global Services will offer BDNA's software as a managed service to its customers. BDNA's technology will provide IBM's customers with a comprehensive and accurate view of their IT environment within a few days, enriched with information from its unique product catalogue containing over 100,000 records of market data. Furthermore, the solution will be used on a continuous basis to track progress during the implementation of the client's IT optimisation strategy.

The resulting analysis will deliver essential information helping CIOs to successfully oversee, measure and report on the deployment of an IT optimisation strategy. For example, this includes the standardisation and consolidation of hardware and software, or the deployment of virtualization technologies to make cost savings. Most CIO's and their teams are under significant pressure to reduce total costs while delivering increasing levels of service to their business customers - all of whom are scrutinising the CIO department's ability to deliver.

"Our customers are demanding a service that quickly and simply allows them to review their technology environment on an ongoing basis and devise a strategy to optimise what they already have," said Bart van Den Daele, director Belgium/Luxembourg, IBM Global Services. "The partnership with BDNA allows us to discover that data, use the software's analytical capabilities to make recommendations to the customer and present it in an easy to understand format that the CIO can share with the rest of the management board."

"Managing the business of IT requires ongoing information gathering and analysis," says Eric Faurisson, European general manager for BDNA. "By providing regular snapshots based on the requirements of each optimisation initiative, the CIO can set goals and targets, measure progress and take corrective actions based on facts rather than opinions. Relevant and accurate information availability at all management levels is crucial to the ongoing success of such projects."
