Interlink Software included in EMA’s Leaders in Advanced IT Analytics Buyer’s Guide
Interlink Software features prominently in this qualitative examination of 13 leading vendors, handpicked by EMA from the “heartland” of Advanced IT Analytics (AIA).
More often referred to as “operational analytics” AIA describes a unifying bridge between IT and business roles – one that brings together IT Ops as a function, IT management toolsets, and associated operational big data.
EMA considers AIA to be a “critical arena of innovation for IT organisations in the digital age”.
The report is an aid to IT executives and technical stakeholders seeking to invest in solutions, covering a variety of different enterprise IT scenarios – helping buyers to map their own individual needs to distinct areas of AIA innovation.
Each offering featured is profiled in detail and measured against a set of shopping cart criteria – from time to value, cloud-readiness through to the ability to support IT-business alignment.
“Our buyer’s guide is not about winners or losers—but rather a detailed evaluation of each vendor’s design point, attributes, capabilities, market history and unique strengths.”
(Leaders in Advanced IT Analytics (AIA) A Buyer’s Guide for Investing in Innovation by Dennis Drogseth & Chris Matney)
EMA conducted interviews with a representative sample of customers in order to validate their findings and enrich the dataset from a real-world, user perspective.
Spanning legacy (mainframe) and cloud environments EMA acknowledge Interlink among those vendors demonstrating “a well-considered evolution from monitoring to integrated analytics”.
EMA also highlight Interlink’s capabilities to integrate with and assimilate data from a diverse range of tools “as well as in enabling IT and business stakeholders to come together more effectively due to their consistent strengths in IT-to-business alignment.”
Grant Glading, Head of Sales and Marketing at Interlink Software had this to say:
“We’re delighted to be included as a leader in the AIA buyer’s guide. AIA encapsulates our service visualisation offering and EMA’s research reinforces the need to align and unify IT with the business – the cornerstone of our proposition.”
