IT can now partner with business managers to define specific metrics around business applications and transactions. These metrics can be automatically collected by customized Database Dynamic Applications to produce reports for trending, capacity planning and operational intelligence, and alert and escalate any service-impacting events.

ScienceLogic™ LLC, a leading provider of next-generation IT framework technology, has announced today the release of Version 4.2 of the EM7 IT Management Appliance. Version 4.2 adds to the already powerful EM7 arsenal of advanced reporting and monitoring features with Web 2.0 technology and sophisticated new tools for agentless multi-platform database management.

EM7 4.2 utilizes Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds for users to customize "newsfeeds" for event and trouble ticket reporting. This new delivery mechanism will help IT departments avoid the e-mail clutter that normally slows down the communication and remediation process. Feeds can be streamed in real-time through RSS readers in a web browser, an operating system sidebar or on handheld mobile devices, ensuring that IT managers have up-to-the-second information on the performance and availability of their networks, systems and applications.

"Using RSS feeds for personalized event and ticket notifications is a business-to-business application of what has traditionally been a business-to-consumer Web 2.0 technology," said David Link, CEO and founder of ScienceLogic. "The new RSS functionality customizes delivery of immediately actionable information - so that technologists can proactively deal with issues before their customers are even aware of them."

EM7 Dynamic Applications are best-practice based and customizable monitoring templates for servers, applications, network devices and other data center hardware and software. The new Database Connector for Dynamic Applications provides an agentless solution for businesses to extend the EM7 monitoring technology to multi-platform databases - including MySQL, MS SQL, Sybase, Oracle, PostgreSQL and SAP - and collect table usage, transactions per second or any stored piece of information. This means that EM7 gives administrators a better understanding of business application performance and availability for any key business application running on these databases.

"Beyond proactive database monitoring, EM7 gives IT departments an invaluable tool to demonstrate value to the business," said Link. "IT can now partner with business managers to define specific metrics around business applications and transactions. These metrics can be automatically collected by customized Database Dynamic Applications to produce reports for trending, capacity planning and operational intelligence, and alert and escalate any service-impacting events."

EM7 4.2 also features rapid integration with third-party solutions, as well as the advanced reporting, monitoring, and secure management interface of its predecessors. ScienceLogic will be showcasing EM7 4.2 at FOSE 2007, March 20-22, at Booth #2341, with general availability starting on April 2, 2007.
