BlueStripe’s innovative automation for System Center Operations Manager gives [Microsoft] customers easy access to real-time Operations Dashboards and Business Application views.
Durham, NC (PRWEB) March 1, 2011
BlueStripe Software announced that the company’s FactFinder application management solution is now providing dynamic application service mapping inside Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. The new capabilities give SCOM users real-time application system maps for application monitoring and problem triage. The announcement is the latest in a dynamic, two-way integration between Microsoft’s premier management tool and BlueStripe’s next generation application management solution.
BlueStripe FactFinder discovers and monitors business applications and their dependencies as they run on physical, virtual, or cloud server platforms. Today’s announcement highlights FactFinder’s ability to not only discover and map all application dependencies, but also deliver those maps as real-time application management views in Systems Center Operations Manager.
“BlueStripe is excited to deliver another industry first, proving that operations teams can manage application performance without having a set of application experts on call 24x7,” said Chris Neal, BlueStripe CEO. “The latest features delivered by BlueStripe will enable System Center users to understand how their systems are being used by business services and applications.”
The latest FactFinder integration features with SCOM go far beyond BlueStripe’s initial Microsoft Management Pack Offering and encompass the complete application management life cycle including Application Discovery, Performance Monitoring, and Problem Solving:
- FactFinder provides dynamic Application System Maps for SCOM’s Distributed Application Management views, updating the maps in real-time when changes occur
- FactFinder Application Performance Alert Messages provide integrated application & dependency level health information as System Center messages
“BlueStripe’s innovative automation for System Center Operations Manager gives our customers easy access to real-time Operations Dashboards and Business Application views,” said JD Marymee, Strategic Partner Alliances Director, Microsoft Management and Security Division. “By combining BlueStripe’s real-time application dependency views with System Center’s already strong system management capabilities, our customer get one view for managing the business applications and the underlying systems supporting them.”
IT operations and hosting teams now have an integrated workflow for dealing with application system events and alerts. The integrated FactFinder / System Center solution enables quick, easy root cause analysis of key application problems with unmatched application system data such as:
- Lists of all applications that depend on specific platforms, servers, or VMs
- Performance of all back-end dependencies for the server node
- Application performance data for all applications running through the machine, including user transactions running across each of the machines
