Bringing the simplicity of the cloud to enterprise data centres – the SureSkills and Nutanix way

Jennifer Fitzpatrick 0 449

When we evaluate new technologies to introduce to our customers, we often return to this guiding principle: how will it help them to reduce complexity in their IT operations?

It’s a refrain we hear time after time, and it’s especially true of data centre environments. Many customers tell us they need to manage complex and resource-intensive three-tier legacy infrastructure. At the start of every investment cycle, they have to predict how much storage they will need for the next three to five years, then provision their management and people to look after that data centre.

Business Intelligence – Turn your Data into Decisions

Adam McElligott 0 486

Every business spends time and effort gathering and reporting data. Whether it’s exporting from their CRM software or creating reports from internal Excel workbooks – assembling business performance statistics can be a manual and time-consuming task. What’s more, the gathering and reporting exercise is repeated day after day and month after month – even though it’s only the data that changes, not the structure of the reports!

At SureSkills, we help businesses to streamline and automate the flow of data from source through to publication. We transform reporting from a repetitive manual assembly and distribution exercise to an “always on”, self-service and interactive view of your key business information.  We deliver this by transforming three areas – Process (how and from where do you gather your information?), Performance Metrics (what are the metrics that help  you identify business performance?) and Publication (who needs access to your performance data and how would they like to view it?).

Our ultimate objective is to provide an interactive Business Performance Information dashboard that is updated as often as you choose at the click of a button and that is easily shared with stakeholders to view on PC’s, laptops, smartphones or any device they choose!
