Application management solutions must be able to understand the make-up of applications, rapidly identify & potentially prevent problems without performing deep code analysis.
Durham, NC (PRWEB) March 1, 2011
BlueStripe today announced availability of their application management solution that warns IT teams of cloud and virtualization based application issues before outages occur. FactFinder v5, the latest release of BlueStripe’s flagship application management software, automatically alerts users when any back-end system exhibits warning signs, even if the application is running properly.
“BlueStripe continues to build on our unique application system visibility to deliver another industry first for revolutionizing application management with FactFinder v5,” said Chris Neal, BlueStripe co-founder and CEO. “FactFinder is the only application management solution that has visibility across complex application systems no matter what platforms they run on.”
FactFinder v5 takes BlueStripe’s philosophy of simplifying application management for IT operations to the next level, enabling better collaboration within IT organizations, providing more automation around application system reporting, and delivering the first ever set of application dependency alerts that require zero configuration or setup by users.
In addition to the FactFinder v5 enhancements, BlueStripe also announced unprecedented integration points with Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager. The SCOM-related features include:
- Automatic loading of dynamic application system maps inside the SCOM user console
- Integration with SCOM system and performance data, overlaid on the maps
- Direct launch of FactFinder’s problem solving workbench from within SCOM alerts & messages
“Most organizations want their IT Operations teams to own application support and management. They would like Developers and Architects to focus on their core competency and assist with application management in the final stages, if necessary”, said Milind Govekar, Gartner vice president of research. “Thus application management solutions must be able to understand the make-up of applications, rapidly identify & potentially prevent problems without performing deep code analysis or sending basic data to other ITOM tools for pure monitoring and data consolidation. However, these solutions should also be able to share meaningful and contextual data with developers or architects, if needed.”
Since the introduction of FactFinder, BlueStripe has delivered automatic application discovery and monitoring, easy problem solving and quick comparison testing for application deployment events, including virtualization and cloud conversions. FactFinder is the first application management solution to combine individual transaction monitoring with automatic discovery, mapping, and cross-platform problem solving capabilities.
