Dashworks Analysis: IT Transformation Discovery & Assessment

Get an accurate and actionable understanding of your IT environment within hours, not weeks.

Accurate, Real-Time IT Environment Discovery & Assessment 

No IT migration project or Business-as-Usual transformation process can begin efficiently without an accurate aggregation and representation of the actual IT environment. However, most IT project managers and BAU leads skip this step because without the right tooling, bringing multiple data sources into one place is difficult to do.

With Dashworks Analysis, this kind of information discovery is effortless and completed within minutes. Use our industry-leading data connectors and our robust ETL capabilities to intelligently extract, transform, and load all relevant data from various sources into the data warehouse, layer additional information on top through CSV imports, and aggregate it using rule-based workflows.

This enables you to get an accurate and up-to-date visualization of your current end-user computer environment, including all in-scope users, mailboxes, devices, applications, locations, departments, and other data into one central, aggregated repository. This information is accessible in one single source of truth for all team members, executive stakeholders, and other key sponsors via the Dashworks Analysis software. 

What Our Customers & Partners Say

Trusted by large enterprises all over the world and major service integrators like Microsoft Consulting, Atos, Wipro, Hewlett-Packard, WWT, and Fujitsu, Juriba's software has readied over 7 million assets for their next generation IT platform, and continues to accelerate IT migrations across the globe.

I was spending all of my time updating and passing around spreadsheets trying to schedule handfuls of users. Trying to keep track of who changed what, and which information was current was impossible. With Dashworks, I had everything I needed in one console, was able to see clearly the applications that were holding up my migrations, and schedule hundreds of users across lots of different countries in the same time. Compared to spreadsheets, Dashworks was a revolution.

Benefits Of Dashworks Analysis

 

Intelligent & Robust Data Connectors

With Dashworks Analysis you can not only intelligently load data using the industry’s most robust, out-of-the-box data connectors for standard repositories, such as

  • Microsoft Active Directory,
  • Microsoft Upgrade Analysis,
  • Microsoft SCCM,
  • Microsoft Exchange,
  • LANDesk, and Lakeside Systrack,

but also layer on relevant organizational information such as application owners, warranty or lease dates, job titles, and desk numbers via CSV imports.

Effortless Data Warehousing & Robust ETL Capabilities

Dashworks Analysis is robustly built to support all your Data Warehousing needs. It has a mature Extract, Transform & Load (ETL) process that can be scheduled and uses incremental and parallel methods for speed. It also includes online data switching, making it possible to refresh your data without impacting system access.

Dashworks knows the data it needs and intelligently de-duplicates, aggregates, and refreshes on a scheduled basis. This way, establishing and consolidating your project information takes hours rather than weeks, and you are always kept in near-time sync with your environment.

 

Rule-Based Data Aggregation & Data Validation/Visualization

Dashworks Analysis includes intelligent data aggregation capabilities to provide asset linkages, enabling project managers to put rules around what data is actually relevant to their project scope. 

It also gives you one central place for all end-user related information:

  • Who owns what?
  • Which applications are they using?
  • Which mailboxes do they have delegate permissions on?
  • Where are they located?

Flexible Data Modeling

Sometimes, you just want to know "what if"? Dashworks has a rule-based modeling system that can quickly identify asset compatibility with target IT platforms as well as the impact of program decisions on your project. Quickly get accurate answers to your questions and model and manipulate scenarios to let Dashworks guide you to the best possible path for your IT Transformation initiative.

Dashboards & Reporting

To allow you to get the data you need, visualize relevant data to everyone involved in the project, and drive asset validation, Dashworks has filterable, pre-canned dashboards and flexible reporting (incl. CSV exports) on users, hardware, applications, mailboxes, and pretty much everything else you could possibly want. From here, you can cut, slice, dice, and drill down to as much detail as you want.

Searching For Data Is A Breeze

Project members can easily find all the information they want by simply typing three characters into the search box. Dashworks will interrogate the warehouse, returning the results you need in a matter of milliseconds.

Features

  • Out-of-the-box data connectors for all of the common IT management tools, such as Active Directory, SCCM, Exchange, LANDesk, Lakeside Systrack and many more
  • File handler for CSV imports to consume additional organizational and other project-relevant data
  • Scheduled, automatic and intelligent data refresh to keep you in near-sync with your live environment
  • Parallel and incremental data processing methods for speed and scalability

  • Intelligent search facility, including fuzzy search, enabling the fastest access to the data you need
  • Pre-canned, filterable dashboards, and flexible reporting to drive asset validation and management
  • Drill, cut, slice and dice to get to the data you need, then drill again for further information
  • Ability to run what-if scenarios to answer questions such as: How many devices need replacing versus refreshing if my organization doesn't support less than 4GB of memory?
  • Project modeling rules to quickly identify asset compatibility with target IT platforms
  • Restricted management console to configure, maintain and support your Dashworks system
