A single solution to map an entire IT estate

Unravelling the spaghetti of technology connectivity

Leading Resolutions are looking for a way to discover and map the entire technology estate of an organisation.

Summary

Background

Trusted by global business leaders as their IT & Digital consultancy of choice, we use technology to solve complex business challenges. We work with blue chip organisations to drive innovation and value from their investment in technology. This requires us to be continually scanning and identifying market innovations that will give competitive advantage to our clients in areas from retail, supply chain, e-commerce, workforce management, automation and AI.

Challenge

Companies today are faced with the need to keep up with new technology and innovation to help them increase revenue, control costs and improve client experience. Almost without exception, well established organisations are constrained by many years of technology investment that they can’t run their businesses without; it is hard to balance change versus run investment and time.

Eliminating that legacy tail and the reliance on it is a major challenge when trying to adopt new hosting options such as virtualisation and cloud. Net new solutions and services are a no brainer but having to connect them to, or run them in parallel with, existing technology often presents a parking brake that is really hard to release.

The “spaghetti” of connectivity that has built up over time, combined with changes in personnel, reactive changes and implementations to solve burning issues, presents an application and infrastructure estate that no one person or collection of persons truly understands. The old “hand offs” in the form of interfaces, messaging, file transfer and so on, create an opaque environment that challenges the “running” let alone the “changing” aspirations of an organisation. 

There are many technologies that claim to accurately discover and map the entire technology estate to present clear decision support information, but if it is that easy, why do so many companies still struggle to unravel the spaghetti and knitting that keeps them running?
