ViaCloud Insight Analytics (VIA)
You have lots of data. What you need are Insights and Analytics. ViaCloud Insight Analytics (VIA) combines technology, people and process to help you quickly and painlessly gain a deep understanding of your organization’s IT infrastructure, and what you need to know about it. We can quickly and easily itemize and inventory everything in your enterprise: Windows, OSx, *Nix, laptops, desktops, servers, switches, routers, printers, tablets, phones, Oracle and cloud-based products such as Office 365 -- completely agentless with limitless scalability. We’ll equip you with actionable information to drive the business decisions you make every day. Let us turn the oceans of data available about your network into easily digestible information that can be acted upon, all focused on reducing unnecessary expenditures/costs and increasing efficiency/profits.




ViaCloud Insight Analytics (VIA) Services

IT Asset Management Framework & Process Design Services:
We work with organizations to help them build enterprise-wide ITAM programs, including fully defined Hardware and Software Lifecycles, proper Financial Management and Governance Models, and even get into the details of ensuring the appropriate key asset data is available across disparate Systems and Groups throughout the lifecycle of an asset. Our ITAM Framework and Process Design Services will enable you to:
  • minimize the risk, impact and recurrence of software audits
  • stop equipment loss, downtime and waste across the organization
  • decrease the frequency of unbudgeted expenses
  
Oracle Discovery & Analytics Services:
We can easily discover Oracle Databases, their enabled options, and other Oracle Products installed throughout your environment. We can also generate easily digestible summaries from the outputs generated by Oracle’s own audit scripts. Our Oracle Discovery and Analytics Services will tell you:
  • how many Oracle databases and products are in your environment
  • what billable options are enabled in your Oracle environment
  • how many Oracle licenses your organization is actually using 
  
Maintenance Contract Management Services:
We can quickly and easily compare your maintenance contracts to their actual production inventory and find potential cost savings. For example, the average Cisco customer is overpaying on their SMARTnet contract by as much as 12%. Our Maintenance Contract Management Services will tell you if:
  • all of your equipment is covered and if you are paying for coverage on equipment that you don’t actually have
  • you are currently using unsupportable or end-of-life equipment
  • you are at risk for downtime due to improper or invalid coverage

Software Asset Management Services:
In real time, we can provide you actionable information on products that are common audit targets, and enable you to maintain your license compliance and keep an eye on any gaps that emerge in your software entitlements. Our Software Licensing Asset Management Services will tell you if:
  • you have deployed more software than you own
  • the software you are paying for is actually being used
  • you are overbuying your software licenses
  
Software Rationalization & Categorization Services:

The typical corporate workstation has over 150 unique installed software titles. However, less than 5% of these installed packages matter in terms of license compliance. Our adaptive software library learns as it goes. Our Software Rationalization and Categorization Services will tell you which:

  • vendors make up your entire commercial software portfolio
  • titles installed in your environment are commercial software and which are ‘noise’ (drivers, freeware, etc.)
  • commercial vendors you should be most concerned about managing your licensing for   

Mobile Device Readiness Services:
Your users’ workloads are being delivered to much more than just corporate desktops these days. Whether we're talking about mobile devices, a BYOD initiative or both, our Mobile Device Readiness Services will tell you:
  • whether your current network can handle an influx of devices
  • how your current commercial vendor agreements will be affected
  • how much control you will want over what is being done with devices connected to my network  


ViaCloud Insight Analytics (VIA) Subscription

A subscription of 12, 24 or 36 months includes monthly reporting and ad hoc reports on key metrics at any time, monthly consultation (one hour) with a ViaCloud Account Executive and Solutions Architect to discuss your environment and any changes, security analysis for rogue or BYOD devices, and audit protection for contracted/licensed software titles.

Active Directory Integration
We can pull in all registered Active Directory devices and users, including their degree of activity, most recent logon, even the areas of the network they were last seen.
Office 365  Inventory
We can discover both local, on-prem inventory and usage, entitlement, and activation of cloud-based products within the Office 365 family. Track every activation, usage, entitlement and activation of your cloud services.

You want to know more than just what titles you have installed - you want to know if you’re compliant. We provide automated gap analysis - simply key your ownership information into the software product tracker.
Next-Level SQL Database Tracking
SQL sprawl is one of the leading hidden costs within today’s enterprise. Our SQL detection algorithms and easy-to-use reporting make that pain a thing of the past.
Virtualization Mapping & Licensing
We can get host hardware specifications such as processor count, architecture, guests running on the hosts for optimal license distribution. We even get the licenses the bare metal itself is consuming!
Oracle Inventory & Analysis
We can easily discover Oracle Databases, their enabled options, and other Oracle Products installed throughout your environment. We can also generate summaries from the outputs generated by Oracle’s own audit scripts.

Instantly see who is connecting to your network, or pulling down corporate data - and on what device.
  
Security Vulnerability & Tracking
Our integration with the Dept of Homeland Security’s “National Vulnerability Database” allows us to keep track of every known software vulnerability and our reports tell you which of them you are currently unpatched against.
