Mountain View and Boston, June 9, 2015 - BDNA and MEGA International announced today that BDNA TechnopediaTM will be integrated with MEGA HOPEX IT Portfolio Management (ITPM) to provide complete, up-to-date technology lifecycle information directly to MEGA customers so they can better manage technology obsolescence and vendor support changes.
With this integration, MEGA customers can use BDNA Technopedia’s latest, most detailed information on the software technology of manufacturers worldwide to plan and manage strategic IT portfolio decisions and reduce the risks typically associated with IT transformation.
BDNA Technopedia makes IT portfolio management faster and easier by providing consistent and accurate information about IT assets. Technopedia is the world’s largest, most comprehensive repository of market intelligence on enterprise software and hardware. This constantly-updated library categorizes more than 1.2 million products from nearly 22,000 suppliers, providing important information such as compatibility, support levels, end-of life, migration plans, vendor mergers and acquisitions, and more.
MEGA’s ITPM solution helps portfolio managers make informed decisions to streamline their IT landscape to match business needs. It allows them to inventory assets, establish a centralized data repository, evaluate information about the business value, costs, risks and performance of each asset. With this information, they can plan and assess transformation scenarios, such as upgrading, replacing or retiring technologies, to reach their ideal IT system.
“MEGA helps companies optimize their IT resources to aid business transformation and improvement,” said Walker White, president of BDNA. “Using BDNA Technopedia will allow their customers to automate the process of obtaining crucial information on technology resources, which will save significant staff time and money that was previously used to research and update technology data.”
“BDNA’s product and market intelligence will help our customers become more agile, so they can sustain a competitive edge in today’s complex business environment,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA. “The broad range and reliability of Technopedia’s data will equip our customers with complete IT asset information at their fingertips every day. This will help them make smart and timely decisions about how their IT resources can support strategic business goals.”
HOPEX IT Portfolio Management and Technopedia are both designed to align IT resources with business needs, unify siloed information across the enterprise, better manage IT asset obsolescence, reduce risks, and deliver a ‘single source of truth’ about enterprise resources.
The integrated solution will be available in July 2015.
