Silverlight technology allows developers to enable a rich user interface that rivals that of desktop applications, while preserving the ease of deployment and support associated with web-enabled applications.
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
AVIcode, Inc., the leading provider of real-time, always-on application monitoring solutions, today announced it will preview its upcoming monitoring capabilities within Microsoft Silverlight environments at the upcoming Microsoft Tech Ed North America event in New Orleans, from June 7-10, at booth 1745. AVIcode is already regarded as the market leader in the management of .NET based applications, offering a broad range of solutions covering all five of the Gartner-defined “dimensions” of application performance monitoring (APM).
As application development teams continue to focus on delivering a rich end user experience, Microsoft Silverlight is quickly becoming an essential tool in the development arsenal. Microsoft Silverlight integrates multimedia, graphics, animations and interactivity into a single runtime environment, allowing users to have more interaction with online applications, therefore increasing the amount of activity between the end user and the server.
AVIcode plans on extending its leadership in the Microsoft development market by incorporating Silverlight monitoring capabilities into both its server and end-user experience monitoring solutions.
“Silverlight technology allows developers to enable a rich user interface that rivals that of desktop applications, while preserving the ease of deployment and support associated with web-enabled applications,” said Victor Mushkatin, CTO of AVIcode. “With Silverlight, developers can implement rather complex logic that improves a user’s ability to interact with an application’s presentation layer via a web browser. This shift to a more complex user interface further exacerbates the already established importance of monitoring both the server and client-side of web applications in order to truly assess both reliability and end user experience.”
Specifically, AVIcode’s Silverlight monitoring capabilities will enable monitoring of the execution of asynchronous Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) calls made from inside Silverlight components, overall load/initialization of XAP/XAML and asynchronous call backs. In addition to performance metrics, all exception information with complete call stack and functional parameters will be collected to significantly simplify support and troubleshooting of Silverlight-based applications.
“As enterprises start to adopt newer development and integration platforms to provide rich user interface for web based business-critical applications to be used with various client devices, the ability to monitor these applications becomes critical,” said Milind Govekar, Research VP, Gartner. “Organizations will have to invest in monitoring tools to reduce downtime, lower TCO of the platform and to improve its quality of service.”
In addition to showcasing its upcoming Silverlight monitoring, AVIcode will also feature enhancements to its end user monitoring solution, Intercept uX, and integration points for both SharePoint and application software quality and testing processes.
AVIcode will be demonstrating its Silverlight monitoring capabilities at next week’s Microsoft Tech•Ed North America held in New Orleans from June 7-10. Demonstrations will be held at the company’s booth #1745.
AVIcode’s Intercept Studio has also been named a Finalist in the Developer Tools category of the annual “Best of Tech•Ed Awards.” The award, which AVIcode has won for the past two years, will be handed out on June 9th.
