Main Capital Partners has acquired a majority stake in synetics, a leading provider of CMDB and IT documentation software.
Synetics offers a software called i-doit in the CMDB (configuration management database) space that helps to document and manage IT and asset infrastructures as well as to identify interdependencies within the IT and asset landscape. The software documents existing assets, items and objects and facilitates customers to run compliant and efficient IT Service Management (ITSM) processes. Its flexibility and applicability to all industries allows companies of any size and business objective to start documenting their IT and assets at a reasonable price. With its own and third-party add-on modules that are offered via a marketplace, the i-doit solution can be extended towards a comprehensive ITSM suite that allows to further automate IT discovery, monitoring and IT security processes.
Synetics is regularly recognized in various industry market reports as leading player in the CMDB space.
The scope of the report included Team & Skills, Processes, Technology & Tools, and Architecture & Code. Whilst all modules were reviewed equally in-depth, the focus was clearly on Architecture & Code, as this was part of the strategic assessment of the deal. The company’s existing architecture was already very well established and the main key to success of this venture.
