IT Cost Reduction

cost reduction comes in three different types: cost savings, avoided costs and opportunity costs. Which of these types of cost savings offers the greatest benefits depends on the situation and the business owner’s objectives.

Built modularly with Automated discovery of all IT Assets, Asset CMDB, Software inventory, License Management, Warranty & AMC, Consumables management, Contracts Management & Omni-Channel Incident Management.

Network Discovery

Discovery Satellite conducts Agentless discovery of all the assets in your enterprise network. The scan automatically provides visibility of all assets including software deployed information.

Euladox Discovery Satellite has the following key attributes that are crucial in building a good asset inventory database:

Key Attribute Details
Native Deployment Euladox does not depend on any 3rd party scanning software for collection of network inventory data.
Multi-protocol Discovery Euladox scans and discovers all networked devices – computers, network printers, routers, switches, etc.
Multi-segment & Location Discovery The discovery satellite works both in online and offline modes allowing discovery of every potential combination of network architectures.
Native Adaptors Active Directory, VMware, Hyper V, Xen Server, OVM, Oracle Technology Products, IBM MQ, DB2, MS SQL Server.
Real Time Reporting Discovery completed and error reports for monitoring and troubleshooting.
Troubleshooting Tools for troubleshooting access issues

Hardware Discovery

Discovery Protocols

The key protocols used for network scan and discovery are:

Protocol Details
WMI Windows Device Discovery
SSH Linux & Unix Device Discovery
SNMP Network Devices Discovery

Apart from the above, Euladox uses specific adaptors for Oracle database, Oracle Middleware, IBM MQ, IBM DB2, MS SQL Server, VMware vCenter etc.

Hardware Inventory

Hardware Catalogue & Asset Recognition

Most inventory scanning software provide raw data with scant information about the servers and desktops. This does not help in understanding the attached software licensing potential and risks. Hence Euladox has taken a very different approach to asset recognition.

Euladox has a very extensive hardware catalogue and contains all servers (Intel, AMD & RISC) manufactured after 2001, all virtualization technologies and hypervisor versions and all Windows, Linux, AIX, Solaris & HP-UX, MacOS versions.

This ensures error-less asset recognition leading to the capability of providing exact network asset distribution and software license deployed positions.

Asset Inventory Database

The asset inventory database holds all the information of every single asset discovered in the network. Customers can view raw data of discovered devices or normalised information after asset recognition.

There are more than 50 reports and views to enable users to see specific information as desired. The system also offers multiple filters across all reports and views so that reports can be customised.

Asset Modelling

Assets that cannot be discovered or are not currently available in the hardware catalogue can be manually modelled. This enables customer to manage any kind of asset in the organisation.

Asset User Linkage

Automated and manual mapping of users to devices and systems. This ensures tracking asset ownership responsibility.

The asset-user linkage is key to providing better incident management and trouble ticket resolutions.

Contract Management

Eualadox has very extensive contract management functionality. The contract management module is described in detail in the Contract Management Section. Read Here.

Warranty & AMC

The contracts management module is completely integrated into the asset management module.

Customers can manage and track all Annual Maintenance Contracts in the system. Some of the facilities provided are:

  • AMC Tracking for each asset
  • AMC reminders through email notifications and alerts

Notifications and Alerts

Customers can configure email notification and system alerts for any event. For example, an email alert is needed for payment of AMC or for completing True-Up Negotiations etc.

Asset CMDB

The Asset CMDB is a key aspect of Euladox ITAM. There is a difference between an ITAM database and a CMDB. Euladox ITAM takes all the necessary relationships for an Asset as a CI and helps build up the dependancies. Customers can track changes made to the asset over a period of time.
