IT Audit & real-time knowledge repository for large multi-national company.
GOAL
Industry Telecommunication
IT Landscape Size:

+14,000 applications

+30000 servers

+220 data centers

Multi-national company initiated plan to document their entire IT landscape in a standardized manner along with a solution to keep it up to date and fresh.

The goal is to provide the organization a clear and close to real-time view of the infrastructure landscape & business process dependencies, remove the risk of knowledge leakage & obsolescence, and reduce discovery, analysis, optimization & planning time & costs on future projects and also stay in control of the IT landscape.

Actions & Insights

Greanalyze carefully studied the existing manual discovery and assessment exercise being carried out, and calculated the risks and costs in continuing with the manual methods.

We automated the discovery & analysis without going to the applications, databases or servers by identifying white noise within the IT landscape and automatically capturing this noise to create forensic data that was then converted into real-time & live application architecture diagrams that were always giving the current picture.

CHALLENGES

Massive landscape means an army of knowledgeable resources is required to discover, analyze & document the information.

Strict control and costs involved in manually keeping these documents fresh surpass the savings made in future projects.

Need a robust, cost effective, mostly automated process.

Solutions

Tool to take a real-time automated forensic snapshot of application architecture diagram along with application & asset interdependency.

The tool further provided application criticality against other applications including critical time zones.

PROBLEMS
70,000 Man days of effort required to document application architecture.
50% Chance that the architectures developed will provide an accurate picture.
Low Availability of solution.
Achievements
1 Time installation of solution to automate documentation of application architecture.
90% Chance that the architectures developed will provide an accurate picture.
High Availability of solution.
Project scope
A holistic approach to problem solving requires thoroughly identifying opportunities through impact analysis. Greanalyze technology, experience & methodology was activated in the following areas for this project:
