Workspace Analytics Wherever You Are, Whenever You Want

- Centrix Software's WorkSpace iQ now available anytime, anywhere, on any device, on any browser and for multiple users

- Ease of access and simple web interface enable application planning and strategy across the enterprise

Centrix Software, a leading workspace management expert, significantly extends its SaaS offering with the introduction of a browser-based interface for its application usage analytics tool, WorkSpace iQ. With this update, any authorised user can access all the data and insights of Workspace iQ - anytime, anywhere, on any device and via any browser.

WorkSpace iQ gives organisations the essential analytics information they need to make decisions about their desktop environment, applications and IT infrastructure; for application planning and rationalisation - and on-going management.

Key features of WorkSpace iQ's anywhere, any user, any device interface include:

  • Easy to use application usage and device analytics and insights, for all types of users
  • Fast and simple delivery of data and business intelligence, for rapid and accurate planning and decision making
  • Multi-user access, on any device and any browser, delivering unique analytics to decision makers across the enterprise
  • An in-depth drill-down, enabling access to detailed estate scenarios and answers for specific questions

The new release of WorkSpace iQ, has been developed with usability in mind. Any person - from Service Desk Manager to Software Asset Manager - can access the solution's unique data insights from any major browser, including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla FireFox.

In addition, users can quickly and easily get to the data or the insights they require without any specialised training or expertise in data analytics. And with the workspace analytics of all user devices, data, apps and content delivered as a cloud-based SaaS service, insight and information will be almost immediately available.

According to a recent Gartner report[1], "Application rationalization is an intense, long-term transformation of business capabilities and supporting applications that requires strong governance and clearly assigned responsibilities. Application portfolio managers need to have governance right upfront to reduce risks and maximize benefits."

WorkSpace iQ has already been proven to support a multitude of private and public sector enterprises, such as Salford NHS Trust and Glasgow City Council, in understanding and rationalising their application estates. Its unique analytics enabled the two Microsoft Windows XP migration projects to accurately assess used and unused applications, and remove of hundreds of applications; supporting the successful migration of over 20,000 users and saving over eighteen months.

"With our WorkSpace iQ SaaS model, we are committed to providing customers with rapid, secure and cost-effective access to the insight and intelligence they need to make informed application rationalisation, strategy and planning decisions on a daily basis" said Centrix Software CEO Lisa Hammond. "The easily accessible web-based user interface allows anyone, in any organisation to access WorkSpace iQ's unique usage analytics services (think BI and big data for IT) to identify what is and isn't being used. This will enable our customers and partners to accelerate the time to achieve compelling savings and free up resources for strategic application management and investment."

"WorkSpace iQ's usage analytics forms a core component of our Intelligent Software Utiliser service, which guarantees to find savings in software usage through a unique methodology and a software solution" said Rav Ahluwalia, Director, Business Technology Group Ltd. "By using WorkSpace iQ the whole process is faster, more granular and easier for our customers to understand their Effective License Position (ELP) and realise software rationalisation savings."

Centrix Software is running a free trial for enterprises to test WorkSpace iQ's easy access and unique analytics for themselves. For more information, contact [email protected] or visit http://www.centrixsoftware.com/.
