This new release introduces enhancements to Landesk connectors, support for additional languages, and updates the solution’s intuitive user experience and interface. Xtraction furthers Landesk’s commitment to the transformation and modernization of IT by helping demonstrate the value of IT to the business with easy access to insights and data.
The Xtraction 2016 update provides improvements to the Landesk Service Desk and Management Suite Connectors, and includes additional out–of-the-box reports and dashboards. It also offers a new Connector for Wavelink.
It is now available in 12 languages, including Spanish, French, Russian and both simplified and traditional Chinese.
Analyst firms and customers recognize the value that Xtraction brings to IT data and analysis. “Xtraction is a well-focused and significant addition to Landesk’s commitment to empower IT professionals with more effective data analysis,” commented Dennis Drogseth, vice president of analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates. “The simplicity of its design will allow IT organizations to create compelling and use-case relevant visualizations and drill-downs.”
“Xtraction is remakably simple to use, but powerful in what it can do,” said Dan Lutter, director of field technology services for Advocate Health Care. “Data is knowledge and power, and with Xtraction it is easy to gain insight into your data, so you can quickly and easily analyze it and take action. Whether it is snapshots of your environment, dashboards or projects, Xtraction provides the ability to monitor progress and tell the story of what is.”
Xtraction was acquired by Landesk in August 2015, also offers Connectors for many enterprise IT data sources beyond Landesk. This enables even non-technical users to easily create dashboards that cross multiple data sources. Xtraction 2016 marks the first major product enhancement since Landesk acquired the technology, and further enables organizations to build dashboards, gain fast access to reports and better analyze important enterprise information to make well-informed decisions.
“When other companies acquire technology companies, they often entirely alter or bury the product that enticed them into the acquisition in the first place,” said Jeremy Carter, senior product manager at Landesk. “By continuing to enhance Xtraction, we are demonstrating our on-going commitment to this technology and are extending it to further benefit our customers and partners. We anticipate continuing to advance Xtraction to help advance our overall vision of a modernized IT experience that is closely tied to user-centered IT service management.”
