Nlyte Software Creates Sophisticated Integration Framework to Connect DCIM With ITSM

Nlyte Software, the world's leading software company focused on the management and optimization of data centers, today announced the release of its ITSM integration framework, which enables Nlyte to deliver the most advanced set of ITSM connectors for today’s most popular systems. The framework provides the assurance that integrations will continue to deliver value regardless of new versions of 3rd party enterprise management systems or Nlyte’s DCIM platform.

Respondents to IDC's December 2013 Enterprise Datacenter Survey ranked "the ability to draw the connection between IT spending and business value" as the most important benefit of DCIM. IDC analyst Jennifer Koppy said, "Without DCIM's integration to an ITSM or enterprise system management system, it would be impossible to make the connection between IT spend and how it relates to business value."

Koppy continued, “Nlyte's investment in ITSM interoperability is a clear statement of its commitment to its customers' long-term success with DCIM. Nlyte recognizes the significantly increased value of DCIM solutions when they are tightly connected to existing ITSM solutions, and the company is making it easy and seamless for its customers to create this link. We expect Nlyte’s new framework to provide customers with tangible benefits today, lower total cost of ownership over time, and most importantly - the ability to link IT spend with true business value.”

The new Nlyte integration framework makes it easy to connect data sets and processes across systems, doing away with rigid, one-time only hard integration approaches. This new framework enables Nlyte to deliver out-of-the-box and licensable connectors quickly. Furthermore, as software versions change - from either Nlyte or an ITSM vendor - the framework either adapts automatically or will require simple configuration-like edits: it abstracts programming thereby eliminating hard coding.

Customers that adopt these connectors will continue to enjoy the value that each software program brings regardless of product changes with DCIM or ITSM systems. The new integration framework is now shipping as part of the current Nlyte release, and is supported by the recently announced Asset Sync connector for HP UCMDB as well as Nlyte’s existing connectors for many other 3rd party CMDBs.

“The DCIM industry has become wrought with vendors who force their clients into brute-force integrations which come with extensive upfront and future costs,” says Robert Neave, Nlyte’s Co-founder, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Product Management. “We recognized this very real problem years ago and while much of the DCIM industry was focused on aesthetics, we focused on the value of integration with ITSM systems. Nlyte is dedicated to solving the customer challenges of connecting DCIM with ITSM systems. With our new framework, we’ve entirely eliminated any external programming. The result is our customers can count on tight integrations that will continue to provide their intended value regardless of any underlying changes in software versions on either side of the equation.”
