TMCnet – ManageEngine Unveils ‘Enterprise Search’ for IT Teams in IT360 [Manufacturing Close – Up]
April 29, 2013
ManageEngine, a real-time IT management company, announced the addition of enterprise search to its integrated IT management solution, IT360.
According to a release, the move introduces a unified search console that is capable of searching databases of any third-party IT management and business applications – without requiring the user to understand the underlying database architectures or write SQL queries.

Larger enterprises often have multiple IT management tools for various IT tasks such as monitoring and managing the network and its servers, applications, assets and service desk. In these multi-tool settings, IT teams face a daunting challenge. To search for a particular IT asset across all their IT management applications, a user must search each application independently – either by using its specific search console or writing database queries to search local data residing in the application. It’s a cumbersome, time- consuming process. For users who cannot write database queries, the task is impossible. Enterprise search in IT360 is changing that.
“For the past few years, Big Data has been the big industry buzzword, as companies attempt to mine the vast amounts of data they generate to make better business decisions – but we believe there are ‘Little Data’ opportunities too,” said Sridhar Iyengar, vice president of product management at ManageEngine. “Enterprise search in IT360 is one example of ‘Little Data,’ which recognizes that valuable information is stored in structured or relational databases. This data is readily available and offers many of the benefits of Big Data solutions, without the major investment of time and resources by IT.” In addition to ManageEngine IT360, enterprise search can be extended to any application that stores its data in a structured RDBMS. Designed as an extensible API and framework, enterprise search can crawl and discover data in any third-party application’s relational data store, including out-of-the-box data search for SolarWinds SAM and Numara Software. Going forward, ManageEngine plans to extend the out-of-the-box meta library to support many more vendors in the IT management space, thereby providing IT users with an open search ecosystem that works across heterogeneous management tools, while protecting their existing investments.
The IT360 dashboard provides a 360-degree view across IT to proactively monitor performance.
ManageEngine delivers the real-time IT management tools that enable an IT team to meet an organization’s need for real-time services and support.
