Itility Cloud Control

A different approach to IT Operations
Software defined and analytics based

Itility Cloud Control (ICC) offers a mechanism to simplify your current existing IT landscape for better operations results. The challenge for IT operations: combine tight controls, effective software and hardware maintenance with higher agility. In short: transforming into the IT operations factory. We wrap your current landscape into software and apply analytics and machine learning to it. We make it software defined. Why not let the machine handle the complexity instead of applying the traditional approach of manual labor?

Using modern technology, we enforce configurations with high repeatability, scalability and “first time right” delivery. We solve critical issues before they occur, by collecting and analyzing metrics of your IT landscape.

We visualize your IT landscapes in an unprecedented way: how it lives, where the costs are, how the end-users perceive its performance and where you should consider security improvements. ICC offers an API for accessing the raw data and through this facilitates any data consumer such as your security officer or the financial controller responsible for charging the services.

A platform to stay in control of your IT landscape while implementing functional and maintenance driven changes. Continuous integration and delivery while maintaining flawless operations.

Benefits

What does it mean for your company?

IT as utility. Always available for your customers to use. Reliable. Changes traditionally cause most outages. With ICC, changes are always automatically tested on an environment identical to production. This to avoid unexpected outages at all times.

Pipelines | Infra-as-code | CI/CD | Automation

Roll out the patches to all systems in your IT application landscape making use of your pipeline. Stay up to par with your lifecycle requirements.

Pipelines | Infra-as-code | CI/CD | Automation | Lifecycle management

Design and define infrastructure or even complete IT landscapes in code. Which puts your environment in the desired state. Deploy this code to your infrastructure. Enforce systems to comply to the requirements set in this code. No more manual interventions to single systems. Enforce your landscape to be uniform.

Infra-as-code | Desired State | Automation

Real time insight into the cost of your running environment. Security insights reporting that can be customized to fit compliancy rules. Performance insight not only on infrastructure level, but also on the more relevant application layer. Real time. Available on web and mobile.

Analytics | Reporting | End-to-end monitoring | Application insights

Advanced stream/hot analytics is responsible for constant monitoring of your system and, when needed, triggers our automation engine to make changes. Predictive analytics ensures the desired state. Advanced reporting gives you and our operations team the possibility to drill down from the end user perspective towards the infrastructure layer. All of this ensures optimal availability and reliability.

Analytics | Auto remediation | End-to-end monitoring | Application insights

Shutdown systems during the night and on weekends if they are not in use. Have a system which is only being used once a month or once a year for financial calculations? Power them on when needed. Scale systems to your requirements without having to order hardware. Only pay for what you use. 20 – 40% cost reduction because of more effective working in DevOps teams using automation.

Rightsizing | Scaling | Capacity management

For cloud-native applications, ICC offers a Kubernetes based container orchestration solution. Through this, containerized applications can be deployed, scaled and managed.

Itility Cloud Control: how does it work?

Digital Transformation

Digital transformation

We combine your current IT landscape with a new software defined way of working: digital transformation and transition for IT Operations. 

With our solution we can unburden you on running your IT while in parallel offer the resilience required by your business. True incremental digital transformation.

How do we do it?

Partners in continuous development

Code and analytics

Based upon latest IT infrastructure developments, application landscapes can be defined in software code. Through modern data analytics practices, performance and status can be monitored and automatically controlled. Applying the “software only” and “analytics first” approach, brings the concept of full control from a cost, compliancy and service level perspective within reach.

SLA reporting

Cost control

The human factor

We work in agile teams covering development as well as operations (DevOps). These DevOps teams have a multi-disciplinary skill set, which covers cloud tec­­­­­hnologies, physical IT infrastructures, analytics, machine learning and software development. We run IT as a factory with you as the factory lead. Our product owners partner up with your application owners to achieve required SLA against defined cost and security levels. 

Continuous integration and delivery

The general concept of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery is applied to your IT. High quality IT Operations are achieved by means of automated testing, automated deployments and peer reviewing using controlled pipelines. A controlled way to manage the application landscapes and infrastructure through software practices offers the business required SLA.

Where do we start?

In a few days we analyze one of your applications for automation and make it software defined

We start small with your easiest application. One of your current applications, including the infrastructure and middleware layer, will be wrapped in a software-controlled setup. This can be done on any cloud, be it private or public.  

Once this is completed, analytics will be used to determine the performance of the application in both the old and new situation. Security and compliancy policies will be considered and reported on. When the software-controlled setup has proven to be beneficial, the application will be migrated to the new setup. The ICC DevOps team will take care of the application and related infrastructure from that point on.

IT organizations are inventing the wheel over and over again by automating their current landscapes in a bespoke manner. Why not approach it from required functional-, cost- and security benefits and leave the automation and analytics implementation up to the expert. Our references have chosen this approach. The gains are visible in the areas of increased end-user productivity, better service levels against lower costs, more insights and better controls.

A carve-out from NXP forced Ampleon into rethinking their comprehensive semiconductor tooling landscape and in parallel driving towards fast carve-out. They chose ICC, obtaining an end-to-end software defined environment offering all required semiconductor tooling for their global semicon design community in the US, Europe and Asia. Requirements for the environment were explicitly for performance (batch plus interactive), semiconductor design process support, security and global availability.

Business critical IT systems that define the planning of trains in the Netherlands. In order to deliver those IT applications in a timely, flawless, and predictable manner, ProRail decided to automate the underlying IT infrastructure.
The ProRail Platform-as-a-Service project used ICC to build a fully automated platform using infra-as-code and a development pipeline for building blocks RedHat, Oracle and Apache web server, including automated testing and automated deployment to Test, Accept and Production. In a DevOps way of working, meaning that the Development was software based and Operations also work in code using the pipelines; a true digital transformation for IT Ops at ProRail.

Signify (formerly known as Philips Lighting) is moving from traditional lighting fixtures to more online (IoT) and integrated services. They chose ICC to have a standard, secure and automated cloud environment that mixes based on two public cloud providers, with an option to extend to a third. Signify required an agile IT environment whilst avoiding a vendor lock-in. Both business applications and product related IoT applications run on the solution.
