The Accelerated Solutions Platform for Financial Intelligence makes it possible for Digital Fuel and customers to release new ITFM solutions faster than ever before. With the Accelerated Solutions Platform (ASP), cost models, dashboards, reports, business logic, data processing, user interface components and data adapters can be packaged into consumable Solution Packs. Solution Packs can be quickly imported using the Accelerated Solution Platform.

With the Accelerated Solutions Platform Digital Fuel can offer new ITFM solutions more often. Each Solution Pack can consist of the core elements for an ITFM solution, including data adapters for collecting data, logic for processing data and UI elements for a rich user experience. Cost Models can also be included in Solution Packs for the fastest way to leverage proven modeling practices.

The Accelerated Solutions Platform includes powerful graphical configuration tools that are available to users in the Designer. With the Designer, users can create new ITFM solutions that can be as simple as summarizing some data and presenting it in a report, or as strategic as an IT performance scorecard using data from Digital Fuel and external sources.

Included in the Accelerated Solution Platform is two critical features; the import and export feature and the self-documentation feature. The import and export feature makes it easy to install Solution Packs created by Digital Fuel, and to promote Solution Packs created by users from pre-production to production. The self-documentation feature automates documenting solutions created with the Accelerated Solutions Platform so that knowledge of the solution can be easily transferred.
