MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BDNA®, the leader in delivering the most trusted and comprehensive technology asset information, announced that its award-winning flagship product, Technopedia, has reached a milestone with more than 120 million data points of timely, relevant product and market intelligence for more than 1.8 million products from more than 34,000 suppliers, the largest and most accurate available in the industry today.
BDNA reconciles and normalizes enterprise asset data into a single source of data, then enriches it with market intelligence from Technopedia to simplify integrations, accelerate business transformation and improve decision-making.
BDNA leverages automation, a global team of content experts and a proven quality framework to improve all processes and projects. BDNA’s content team provides more than 2,500 updates a day to Technopedia, ensuring that it is always up-to-date.
“Technopedia is the result of more than a decade of research and content development,” BDNA President Walker White said. “No one in the industry can even come close to the depth and breadth of what BDNA offers.”
“Technopedia is becoming a virtual gold standard,” said Dennis Drogseth, vice president for Enterprise Management Associates. “That’s important as data issues, in terms of incomplete or incorrect data, arise consistently in all of our research, whether it’s asset, performance or change management, let alone the growing need for integrated security and risk management insights. And that’s also part of the beauty of Technopedia—it’s a versatile foundation for multiple IT initiatives, especially when combined with BDNA’s fingerprinting and discovery.”
Technopedia’s market-enriched content enables many enterprise solutions, including: IT Asset Management (ITAM); Configuration Management Database (CMDB); Enterprise architecture (EA); IT Operations; IT Procurement; IT Service Management (ITSM); Security (Governance, Risk and Compliance); Technology Business Management (TBM); and Vendor Audits.
In a recent review of Technopedia, ITAM Review founder Martin Thompson called it “a unique and innovative offering for identifying the truth in large enterprise networks.”
“Typical IT organizations today have good information in silos, using inconsistent naming conventions exposing themselves to risk and inefficient working practices and poor decision-making,” he said.
Thompson cited several BDNA strengths, including: the impressive list of large corporate customers; a single focus on normalizing and enriching enterprise technology data; strong positioning to take advantage of Internet of Things device connectivity overhead issues; and great potential for usage beyond the ITAM department for IT department-wide decision-making.
BDNA plans to introduce several new features and capabilities in its ground-breaking Technopedia 6.0, scheduled to launch later this year.
“Enterprises are realizing they have to better manage and leverage their data,” BDNA Co-Founder and CEO Constantin Delivanis said. “BDNA is expanding its solutions beyond IT hardware and software asset information and medical devices to include IoT device management, tackling an explosive, new market.”
