By monitoring critical applications from a business perspective, Longitude helps focus scarce IT resources where they are needed most, and speeds time-to-resolution. This decreases the company's exposure to what can be the very hefty costs of failing to meet SLAs, including loss of sales and customer loyalty.

Heroix, a leading provider of agentless application performance and network monitoring software, today announced its Longitude software has been nominated in the Enterprise Technologies category in the for the 6th Annual Technology Awards given by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange (MITX) for products created or developed in New England. Longitude enables IT organizations to improve application and network performance, view IT performance from a business perspective, and monitor service level agreements (SLAs), without requiring software to be installed on each server.
"This award nomination reflects how Longitude enables companies of all sizes to enhance, simplify, and improve their business processes," said Heroix President Rick Lane. "By monitoring critical applications from a business perspective, Longitude helps focus scarce IT resources where they are needed most, and speeds time-to-resolution. This decreases the company's exposure to what can be the very hefty costs of failing to meet SLAs, including loss of sales and customer loyalty."
Longitude takes an agentless approach to performance monitoring, management reporting, alerting, automated corrective action, SLA monitoring and user experience monitoring for applications, servers, IT infrastructure, networks, and SNMP devices. Agentless software works without the need to install software on the systems being monitored. As a result, Longitude is able to improve IT service delivery without depleting server resources. It also also takes less time to install and deploy, saving time for IT staff, and is generally less expensive to license than agent-based products.

Longitude Standard Edition provides effective, easy-to-use operating system and IT infrastructure monitoring capabilities affordable for small to medium businesses.
