UXC Keystone Partners with BDNA

Provides data for ServiceNow deployments

UXC Keystone has partnered with BDNA to provide data-as-a-service (DaaS) for ServiceNow customers in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

UXC Keystone is the largest ServiceNow partner in the region. The agreement is said to help new and existing customers get more from their service by gaining access to analytics across ServiceNow and legacy deployments.

ServiceNow assists with enterprise service management by automating and standardising business processes, as well as consolidating global IT to a single system of record.

UXC Keystone chief executive, Dion Williams, said IT is increasingly being asked to provide visibility and transparency into the costs of delivering ‘service’ and to benchmark against industry peers and other service providers.

He emphasised that the need to identify and track financial details of all assets, including dependency on current and future service provision, underpins the requirement for cost transparency.

“A key challenge though right now for IT asset management is identifying clean, normalised and relevant data as the data that feeds IT asset management systems comes from multiple discovery sources and systems, including the ServiceNow configuration management database.”

BDNA provides asset inventory; asset utilisation; renewal and upgrade decisions; software audits; vendor management; as well as risk and compliance.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
