Introduction : In this project we want to improve the way that the users checks the information concerning to the systems of IT/DB infrastructure. Giving easy-to-read representations of the environment in an optimum time. Project overview: When you are working with dozens of servers and several types of configurations, it´s really important to know all the information concerning to every server in order to make changes, fix problems, etc. If the environment where you are working is very big, it´s a waste of time to search for all this information because the data repositories doesn´t has a human-friendly format and it´s really difficult to understand and read. Furthermore, if new people is starting to work in our environment, it´s quite difficult for them to understand the structure of the environment and how to read this information. So we need a tool to process all this information, to make a standard and easy-to-read representation of the environment but giving the same details than the stored information, saving time and increasing the comprehension of the system.
