ManageEngine Announces ManageEngine IT360 Beta, an Integrated Business Service Management 'Lite' Solution; BSM Without the Up-Front Expense or Lengthy Implementation
"For years, IT managers have supported the goal of BSM (mapping infrastructure components to the business services they support), but the expensive software -- and even more expensive, months-long implementations and staff trainings -- left many feeling BSM was out of reach. ManageEngine IT360 is designed to offer the benefits of BSM -- starting with the business centric views illustrating the way in which business services are affected when IT resources are underperforming or unavailable -- without the cost or the headaches."
