ZISGUI

The ZISGUI system by LeuTek provides a clear view of monitoring business processes, that are central elements in modern business service monitoring. While cross-platform monitoring of systems is performed by the ZIS System, the ZISGUI system graphically displays IT processes. They can be displayed using simple drag and drop with the ZISGUI Designer or with the integrated out-of-the-box display tools.

Multi-tenancy and therefore group-specific views allow departments to focus on their subject without being overwhelmed by masses of data. The user interface is absolutely customizable and allows group-dependant views. Structuring options are almost infinite using different object types. All this results in displaying a complex IT structure, that may consist of thousands of data points, in a clear and transparent way.

Furthermore, special objects allow to create overviews that contain only messages from customizable areas starting at a settable threshold. This allows you to recognize in a simple way if there are any critical events in a complex IT service without browsing through a series of views.

Additionally, the business views can simply be customized using background images and icons to match the corporate design of an organization. These leads to a high acceptance among users.

With its flexible and user-specific display options and the combination of individual and dynamic service views, the ZISGUI system is an ideal tool for an upstream umbrella system.

Together with its Designer application, the ZISGUI system provides a wide toolkit to display processes and IT structures and their current statuses in different views. Intuitive usability, drag and drop, and hierarchical structures are important prerequisites met by the system for fast design. This ensures wide acceptance among users.

Customized display of business services

A customized representation of business services is mainly suitable for static display, e.g. for top level services. In the ZISGUI Designer, you easily drag and drop different items and icons to create simple graphic views of complex IT services. These views are used as superior service displays or management views.

Dynamic display of business services

As opposed to customized display, for dynamic display business views are created by the system on the basis of underlying service structures. They can be read for example from a configuration management database (CMDB) and displayed in one of the dynamic display tools ZIS Service Viewer, ZIS Treemap Viewer, or ZIS Service Explorer. This ensures business views to be up to date without manual intervention.

Key facts

The ZISGUI system by LeuTek provides the following possibilities and features:

Clients

The ZISGUI system can be used as a Windows client or optionally over a web client. The ZISGUI Web Client is a high-performance user interface that does not only provide a view mode but a series of operation options such as editing events and operating web consoles.
Together with its Designer application, the ZISGUI system provides a wide toolkit to display processes and IT structures and their current statuses in different views. Intuitive usability, drag and drop, and hierarchical structures are important prerequisites met by the system for fast design. This ensures wide acceptance among users.

Automated processes

To be able to respond fast to modified business processes, the ZISGUI system supports auto-creating complex monitoring structures from a CMDB or other external data sources (e.g. CSV lists)

Multi-tenancy

Different user groups and their individual designs provide the required information for the specific target groups with the option to interact.

Prevention instead of response

The system provides zoom and drill-down features and the possibility to display hierarchical structures. This allows users to immediately recognize the cause of a malfunction and to intervene directly. This can avoid operation outages or reduce the mean time to repair (MTTR).

Integrate web sites and third-party applications

Additional information can be added to service views and assessed at a single glance by integrating internal or external websites or by calling external programs.

Video display

Video in the ZISGUI system supports access control for secured areas.

Display consoles

In the ZISGUI system, you can integrate and operate many different consoles (TN3270, Unix/Linux, and Windows consoles) to realize console consolidation.

Display data center infrastructure

To display data center infrastructure monitoring (power and climate values as well as relevant information from fire panels and building technology systems), the floor plans of selected data center modules or of the complete data center can be used as background image in ZISGUI.

We would be glad to present you on site how your company benefits from the use of the ZISGUI system. We are looking forward to your contact!
