InsightNow! by DataArm
I have worked for 17+ years in various IT engineering capacities, from writing a Facebook-like app (and running the datacenter) for a (failed) startup. All the way to being a data center solutions consultant with SUSE (THE) Linux distribution for the whole LATAM market (which means I had the privilege of solving the most "hairy," though problems for some of our biggest clients).
There are much smarter engineers than me out there, but I'm proud of my career, mainly because 19+ years ago I was working for a meager $25 (yes, twenty-five dollar) a MONTH salary cleaning an office building.
Just so I could use my boss' computer during the night because I couldn't afford one (and I was very intrigued by that "Linux" and "internet" thing I read about on a borrowed magazine).
Take every opportunity in life that presents itself to you.
I am going to share with you my "secret sauce," the thing that got me through poverty, learning IT, getting a degree, traveling around the world and starting my own company:
... drum rolls
Do you see what I did there?
Everywhere you go, solve a problem for PEOPLE, in the most simple, economical way you can. Repeat.
By "simple" I mean, fight your ego, don't create a No-SQL database cluster when a spreadsheet (or a physical whiteboard) will do.
By "economical" I mean, don't take two months to rewrite the whole automation and CI/CD pipeline only because you like Bamboo and Ansible more than Jenkins and Puppet (or vice-versa).
Now of course, sometimes a very complicated, expensive solution is what is needed, go for it! but make sure you are not doing it only because it sounds "cool" or "elegant."
In IT Operations, boring, secure, reliable, predictable, useful, economical and fast is the really cool.
I am doing this (DataArm) with a small group of people because we believe we found a cool way to add value to you, and we call it InsightNow!
InsightNow! is a fresh take on an old, pervasive problem that most IT engineers have to face every day (so ubiquitous that many don't even notice it anymore, just like those pesky stickers on fruits).
Let me first tell you when you should NOT buy from us:
If you made it all the way here, then we have something of value to offer:
With InsightNow! we index all the data from your technology stacks and calculate the connections and relationships in your operation, from any vendor you want, as long as there is an API or ETL interface like:
No dumb and noisy network port scans or SNMP heavy traversals, but intelligent, expert analysis of every vendor's data, just the way you would have done it when investigating a problem.
All you need to provide is:
We do everything else for you (including remote setup and support):
The possibilities and room for customization to your operation are genuinely limitless because InsightNow! does not impose a specific, pre-conceived view or tooling, we automate the discovery process of what you have, assuming nothing, expecting nothing (not even a certain structure to the data itself), which is the Achilles' heel of most (if not all) IT solutions related to:
Think of us as the practical parts of ITIL, written by DevOps and Agile practitioners, in full auto-pilot mode.
Interested? Tell us about your tech stack and yourself; we will geek out over Skype, share some war stories, show you a live demo, and answer all questions you may have; you will not believe your eyes.
