90 Second Overview of Annitek Navigator 2.0
ANNITEK NAVIGATOR 2.0 is a powerful HTML5 Dashboard development & presentation platform for your business. Available for On Demand, Hosted or On Premise deployment. Annitek Navigator 2.0 unlocks the data isolated in your various applications such as CA PPM, ServiceNow, Changepoint, Planisware, Troux, Rally and/or Excel and provides a 360° visualization of all your data.
Stop creating integrations between all your applications. Annitek Navigator 2.0 can combine data from multiple data sources into a single visualization. Break down the application silos to get a true 360° view of your business.
Reporting software today embeds the queries within the reports reducing reusability. Annitek Navigator 2.0 Database/Web Service layer is separate from the presentation layer, enabling the use of the same data source over and over again.
Annitek Navigator 2.0 integrated platform modules include Administration, User Management, Data Management and Dashboard Designer. No need to download any software, as Annitek Navigator 2.0 is totally web based.
Annitek Navigator 2.0 is able to produce sharp and crisp charts which are very high resolution. Using the latest technology, Annitek further delivers on our promise to our customers of bringing clarity to their PPM.
End users can download dashboards or data to PPT, PDF or Excel. Administrators can embed the dashboards in the corporate intranet, CA Clarity PPM or SharePoint. (We recommend you only share data that is not confidential on your intranet).
One of the unique features of Annitek Navigator 2.0 is that dashboards deployed within our portal can also be embedded in any application. Build in one place and deploy anywhere including SharePoint. Of course we recommend you only share approved data.
When deploying a new web application, part of the focus on providing a seamless user experience is to allow your users to sign on once to access all of their applications. SAML is one of the protocols that is supported by Annitek Navigator 2.0.
Annitek Navigator 2.0 communicates directly with CA PPM using a web service, and gets a list of active users. Using this mode we are able to leverage the CA PPM Security model to ensure that all the data is shown based on the security rights. You can also leverage Active Directory or another application.
Annitek Navigator 2.0 Dashboards can be viewed on an iPad using an app made specifically for the iPad. It can be downloaded from the app store https://itunes.apple.com/app/annitek-navigator/id930889476?mt=8.
We wanted to provide the best service to our customers, so we partnered with companies that can provide our customers with a Reliable, Scalable, High-Performance and Secure global computing infrastructure. Annitek Navigator 2.0 is hosted on world-class cloud hosting services from Amazon and/or Rackspace.
Available On Demand, Hosted or On Premise
Navigator runs on a cloud server and is accessed over the web with a username and a password. The cloud server may have multiple tenants on the same infrastructure layer. Upgrades and new features are made available on an on-going basis. There is nothing the customer needs to maintain. Get the Implementation going quicker and at a fraction of on premise deployment.
The On Demand version is available in lot sizes ranging from a minimum of 100 to 1500 plus. A customer can start with a minimum number of licenses and roll it out enterprise wide as the adoption increases and users recognize the value of the solution.
Navigator is accessible via the web similar to On Demand/Cloud. The hosted solution requires separate servers and installs for each customer. The customer owns the software and pays maintenance each year. Implementations and upgrades to new releases are more costly than the On Demand deployment, but the customer has complete control over the implementation.
Sometimes getting infrastructure deployed at companies can take months. With a hosted environment we can get you going rapidly. You still own the software as with an On Premise implementation, but we are responsible for infrastructure and maintenance.
Navigator is installed and run on the customer's hardware, requiring administrative resources and additional cost for databases and infrastructure. The customer owns the software and pays maintenance every year. Implementations involve multiple departments and deployment takes longer, but the customer has complete control of the solution.
The hardware and software are all behind the customer’s firewall. The advantage of this kind of implementation is that access to applications which use the databases is easily available to the Navigator.

I’ve been working with Annitek for over 10 years, both as a CA Clarity Project Manager and as Clarity Development and Support Manager. Their professionalism, responsiveness and expertise in Clarity are all top notch. I’ve worked with several organizations which can make similar claims. Where Annitek consistently excels is in their ability to see through what I’m asking for and point me toward what I actually need. I have no hesitation in recommending them!
