About i-doit

i-doit stands for „I document IT“. By using i-doit you obtain the “point of information” for all your IT processes. Everything, that needs to be documented is centralized in one single spot.

Updates are carried out automatically or manually. This gives you a comprehensive overview of your IT.

However, with i-doit you do not document your hardware only. You also have a full-fledged CMDB at hand, with which you can interrelate all aspects of your IT environment.
