FNT to unveil two software updates for better data centre management in June

Zafirah Salim | March 3, 2015
The thrust of the new releases – FNT Command 10 and FNT Service Planet 3 – is focused on delivering a solution to help achieve a stronger, unified approach to data centre management.

To be optimally equipped for the IT of the future, IT managers need the right planning and management tools which they can trust in building sustainable technical landscapes. 

Responding to this market demand, FNT Software announced today two new upcoming major software releases - the FNT Command 10 and FNT Service Planet 3 - which will be made available in June 2015.

These new features, which will be unveiled at CeBIT 2015, form the basis to manage infrastructure intelligently and provide services efficiently from one central, holistic repository.

The FNT Command 10 software provides predefined dashboards that collect and provide all important information as a basis for decisions relating to IT infrastructure, data centre capacities and network capacities.

Predefined dashboards will also be used in FNT ServicePlanet 3 to help in evaluating the efficiency of provisioning IT services.

In addition, FNT Command 10 will be enhanced by the new "Graphic Centre", which extends the analysis and display of net structures dynamically.

"Integration and collaboration" forms the second component of the new software releases, as FNT Command 10 and FNT ServicePlanet 3 have been unified even further.

The standard integration of FNT software with other systems is ensured by the newly developed "Business Gateway". This allows for simplified communication with other systems and standard interfaces; for example, the exchange of data using Microsoft SCCM or VMware vCenter.

FNT especially has the end-user in focus, as it aims to improve the usability and accelerate everyday working processes. The new powerful yet simplified search function allows for quicker data access and therefore a purposeful operation, according to the company.

The mobile app FNT Command Mobile is also enhanced by essential functions that simplify the input and care of infrastructure assets on-site. For FNT ServicePlanet 3, the user interface is simplified in the same manner. Additionally, the role-based views create improvement in everyday work.

"IT Managers who want to be prepared for the future must be able to trust in the accurate and universal documentation of their IT infrastructure," said Nikolaus Albrecht, CEO of FNT Software.

"Based on our comprehensive data model and the unified management approach, including all areas of modern IT landscapes, enterprises can be confident that software from FNT is providing the right tools. With the new release of FNT Command 10 and FNT ServicePlanet 3, new innovations have been added to help prepare for the upcoming digital transformation," he added.
