Actionable KPI’s are business critical and the reason why have accepted to step up as Director EMEA for Northcraft Analytics but I will continue to work with the providers that I support.
The short version is that Northcraft Analytics permit effective dynamic “Big Data for IT” reporting and analytics with actionable KPI’s where native reporting from BMC, ServiceNow and HP does not and I thought that you could find this of interest.
The key differentiator between Northcraft Analytics and for example Service Now reporting is that ServiceNow propose basic reporting with a cost notion tagged to it where Nortcraft permit to follow:
Northcraft Analytics provide a best in class solution with actionable KPI’s presented in executive friendly scorecards with 1500 + Key Metrics and Key performance indicators
where our pre-built Hybrid OLAP (HOLAP) BI Applications scale to meet the needs of very large IT organisations, such as ExxonMobil, Cox Enterprises, Novartis, Turner Broadcasting http://www.northcraftanalytics.com.
Data can be presented in any format and to the required audience in a number of visual forms, can be leveraged from Microsoft Dynamics, Service Now, BMC, and installation can be on premise or on cloud and a data example can be spun up on AWS in a matter of minutes. That is we can build a demo with your data in a matter of minutes.
If you have planned to move from BMC / HP / CA to Service Now Northcraft gives you enough visibility to ensure services levels remain acceptable.
Northcraft permit to ensure executive buy in and effectively address bottle necks in how services are delivered and avoid “ticketing fatigue” that is when users no longer bother to submit a ticket and ensure that you run a best in class service organisation.
The below introduction should give you a good overview of how to leverage your ServiceNow / BMC / HP / CA / ITOM investment and this video will give you an idea what can be achieved by this what have been qualified as “very cool product” if you have too much haystack and not enough needles this is for you:
Northcraft Analytics is a Gartner leader and you will find the Gartner report towards the end of the enclosed white paper booklet that would also provide more granular technical information.
One of the key challenges we often see with data collection into a data lake / reporting environment is the maintenance of the ETL layer. For example : new fields are added, labels of fields are modified, field types/length, relationships, etc. traditional ETL tools require a lot of effort.
Northcraft provides a solution that is pre-built, incremental, parallel and handles exceptions. 80% of our development effort is the ETL for the enterprise applications we support.
If you have sample data we can spin it up in AWS in a matter of minutes to showcase:
