IBM Gets Environmental Analysis Tools In-House
With the acquisition of the Australian Envizi, IBM acquires a company that provides insight into the environmental impact of a company and its activities.
It did not disclose how much IBM would pay for the acquisition. However, it sounds like the company’s tools will be integrated into IBM’s existing software, such as IBM Maximu asset management solutions, IBM Sterling supply chain solutions, IBM environmental Intelligence Suite, IBM Turbonomic and Red Hat OpenShift capabilities.
In short, Envizi can collect and consolidate more than five hundred data types and pour them into various existing frameworks or dashboards. This should give companies an overview of their ecological impact throughout all operations and its supply chain.
For example, IBM also uses Envizi itself to monitor its targets for renewable energy and greenhouse gases.
