Enterprise IT management company, LANDESK, has acquired Xtraction Solutions, a company that brings business intelligence to IT operations initiatives. This acquisition, LANDESK's sixth in three years, advances the LANDESK Workspaces initiative and furthers the company's vision for user-centered IT service management.
The company issued a statement that claimed Xtraction Solutions will play a key part in LANDESK's strategy to integrate products across its portfolio. Its solutions will provide content that allows organisations to develop insights into how to better drive their businesses.
The Xtraction Solutions data-aggregation technology allows IT organisations to connect multiple data sources into a single solution that enables users to visualise the state of their IT environment and make decisions to improve processes, technology, projects, security and service levels across the business.
LANDESK CEO, Steve Daly, said the company is looking forward to bringing its customers a solution that lets them extend the value of their IT management portfolio.
"We believe that when this information is combined with additional data from across their environment, it will provide powerful insights to help them demonstrate the value IT delivers to the business," he said.
A former LANDESK One partner, Xtraction Solutions already provides out-of-the-box data models and pre-built dashboards for LANDESK Service Desk and Management Suite.
Daly added that the company plans to further leverage these capabilities across its portfolio and to integrate them into its workspaces, giving organisations an IT management experience that unifies data, simplifies processes and delivers tools based on role.
LANDESK also plans to develop additional data models for third-party software and databases and will continue to advance the technology for use in non-LANDESK environments, maintaining it as a heterogeneous solution for the IT operations market.
Xtraction Solutions customers will immediately begin receiving ongoing support and updates through LANDESK's global support organisation and will benefit from membership and participation in LANDESK's active community of users.
