ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the addition of enterprise search to its integrated IT management solution, IT360. The industry-first move introduces a unified search console that is capable of searching databases of any third-party IT management and business applications — without requiring the user to understand the underlying database architectures or write SQL queries. Register to get a sneak-peek of IT360 with enterprise search now before the global launch in May 2013 at http://ow.ly/k5i2I. Also, check out an interactive demo showcasing the new enterprise search functionality at http://ow.ly/k1r6N.
Larger enterprises often have multiple IT management tools for various IT tasks such as monitoring and managing the network and its servers, applications, assets and service desk. In these multi-tool settings, IT teams face a daunting challenge. To search for a particular IT asset across all their IT management applications, a user must search each application independently — either by using its specific search console or writing database queries to search local data residing in the application. It’s a cumbersome, time-consuming process. For users who cannot write database queries, the task is impossible. Enterprise search in IT360 is changing that.
“For the past few years, Big Data has been the big industry buzzword, as companies attempt to mine the vast amounts of data they generate to make better business decisions — but we believe there are ‘Little Data’ opportunities too,” said Sridhar Iyengar, vice president of product management at ManageEngine. “Enterprise search in IT360 is one example of ‘Little Data,’ which recognizes that valuable information is stored in structured or relational databases. This data is readily available and offers many of the benefits of Big Data solutions, without the major investment of time and resources by IT.”
Now, IT and business users can quickly tap into their own Little Data using the industry’s first unified search console to search for any asset across multiple vendor applications. IT360 enterprise search features a Google-like interface that enables users to simply click and view results without requiring users to program SQL queries or understand database schemas or structures. IT360 even allows users to choose how those results are displayed and provides links to actionable search results.
How It Works
With IT360, a technician troubleshooting a server problem could use enterprise search to look for all data related to that server name. The enterprise search result would return not only server statistics from the server monitoring application but also any tickets associated with that server from the help desk application. In turn, the technician would not only find that the RAM on that server is insufficient but also see that there is a service request in the help desk to upgrade the RAM in that server.
In addition to ManageEngine IT360, enterprise search can be extended to any application that stores its data in a structured RDBMS. Designed as an extensible API and framework, enterprise search can crawl and discover data in any third-party application’s relational data store, including out-of-the-box data search for SolarWinds SAM and Numara Software. Going forward, ManageEngine plans to extend the out-of-the-box meta library to support many more vendors in the IT management space, thereby providing IT users with an open search ecosystem that works across heterogeneous management tools, while protecting their existing investments.
Iyengar added, “In recent surveys of our customers, over 80 percent of enterprises that use multiple IT management tools see value in enterprise search and look forward to using it to search for information across those tools. We think this functionality will be very well received.”

To help companies understand the pivotal role enterprise search will play and, more broadly, how to better align their technology and business decisions, today, ManageEngine is hosting a free, 60-minute webinar with special guest Forrester Research.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
