Landesk Acquires Data Aggregator Xtraction Solutions

Landesk Software, a provider of applications for information-technology systems management, has acquired Xtraction Solutions, a vendor of business-intelligence tools.

Xtraction's data-aggregation technology allows I.T. organizations to connect multiple data sources into a single system that allows users to quickly visualize the state of their I.T. environments, and make decisions to improve processes, technology, projects, security and service levels. A former Landesk One partner, Xtraction also provides out-of-the-box data models and pre-built dashboards for Landesk Service Desk and Management Suite. Landesk said it plans to integrate that functionality into its Landesk Workspaces, which helps companies to unify data and simplify I.T. processes. Xtraction has also developed pre-defined models for dozens of products from other technology vendors. Landesk intends to develop additional data models for third-party software and database, and will continue to advance the technology for use in non-Landesk environments.
