Cardinal Health Drives IT Service Delivery Performance with Numerify

Fortune 50 Company Increases IT Service Management Efficiency and Productivity Using Numerify's Award-Winning IT Business Analytics Solution

CUPERTINO, Calif., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Numerify, a provider of cloud-based analytics solutions for the business of IT, today announced that Cardinal Health, Inc. (NYSE: CAH), a Fortune 50 healthcare services company, has chosen Numerify's pre-built analytic applications to gain more visibility into their IT service management performance and drive improvements.

Cardinal Health is a $91 billion healthcare services company that helps pharmacies, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, clinical laboratories, and physician offices focus on patient care while reducing costs, enhancing efficiency, and improving quality. The company needed an IT service analytics solution that would enable IT leaders to measure and manage data across various data sources in order to increase overall productivity of their departments as well as better identify and reduce inefficiencies.

After evaluating multiple solutions, Cardinal Health selected Numerify for its ability to offer pre-built analytics in the cloud that combined domain best practices with hundreds of pre-built metrics, reports, and dashboards. Key factors swaying Cardinal Health's decision to standardize IT business analytics on Numerify were the fast deployment time of just 3-4 weeks and ability to access highly intuitive dashboards via multiple channels so that data-driven decisions can be made anytime from anywhere.

"Analytics is now a critical component of our IT organization," said Ben Sapp, director of IT service management, Cardinal Health. "With Numerify we now have a powerful application to reduce costs and optimize processes quickly. Numerify will enable us to be more analytics-savvy, and free up resources to focus on interpreting and analyzing data to gain insights, rather than spending long hours manually preparing reports."

Numerify's analytic applications span the key functional areas of the IT organization, including services, assets, project management and finances, to provide a 360 degree view of IT business performance. In particular, Cardinal Health will use Numerify's IT Service Analytics capabilities to deliver centralized service management performance dashboards for a broad set of users including IT managers and business service owners across all of its global locations and lines of business. Cardinal Health will leverage Numerify to perform detailed root cause analysis to highlight recurring incidents, identify opportunities to improve knowledge base content and end-user self services, and drive increased automation in a concerted effort to reduce the number of incoming incidents across all lines of business.

"IT is every organization's central nervous system, so maintaining its overall health and well-being is crucial to operational success," said Gaurav Rewari, CEO and founder, Numerify. "Numerify's IT business analytics gives IT leaders the ongoing insights required to keep all functional areas of IT in optimal shape. We're looking forward to helping Cardinal Health drive tangible process improvements across its IT organization as part of their ongoing mission to more efficiently deliver the highest quality healthcare services available."
