Scalable LIVE! is a Platform as a Service (PaaS). It is an enabling technology, which supports the development of our new cloud-based IT Asset Management applications, such as Asset Vision|Registry, Asset Vision|SelfAudit, Asset Vision|Optimize and Asset Vision|Manage (which will include our WinINSTALL™ product in the near future). It also supports the development of an ecosystem of ITAM products by our partners.
Scalable’s rationale for investing in such a project is as follows: IT spending has come under much greater scrutiny in recent years. This attention is not just due to global economic conditions, but a greater awareness within business sponsors of the value and efficiency of IT operations. It is this awareness that has led to the on-demand model for IT expenditure becoming the expense model of choice for IT investment. This shift toward paying for what is used, when it is used has in turn given rise to cloud-based and virtualized computing models for almost all types of IT service.
For most large organizations cloud-computing will be implemented using a combination of private clouds, where existing datacenters evolve to support a more dynamic infrastructure and charging model, supplemented by certain facilities drawn from public clouds. This shift away from traditional ways of procuring, implementing, managing and decommissioning IT Assets requires a totally different approach to IT Asset Management (ITAM). Asset Management and Asset Utilization merge in this new world to enable IT professionals to manage, measure and plan for IT asset requirements in ways that support the business requests for a more dynamic, on-demand cost model.
Cloud-based computing models offer many benefits way beyond on-demand pricing to both consumers and suppliers. Chief among those benefits is the opportunity to harness innovation more rapidly and make that innovation available to consumers at a fraction of the cost of traditional models.
It is against this backdrop that Scalable has delivered its Scalable LIVE!® platform.
Scalable LIVE! is the first enterprise-class, cloud-based platform for the development of next-generation ITAM applications.
Scalable LIVE! operates from within the cloud. It provides a vehicle for the tremendous amount of innovation at large among ITAM consulting and software specialists and end-users to become available to all consumers of IT. Scalable LIVE! makes it easy for innovative organizations to rapidly deliver and commercialize software solutions to the many ITAM challenges of this new era.
On the right hand side of this page navigation exists that details the many facilities Scalable LIVE! provides to help harness innovation, and enable our partners to make such innovation commercially available to the many enterprise users of IT.
Alongside the technology, Scalable has introduced the ServiceMall™ Partner Program. This program includes a comprehensive range of commercial and technical features to help our partners to take innovative ideas for next-generation ITAM applications from the whiteboard to commercial success.
