BlueStripe's FactFinder is the first APM solution built specifically for IT Operations teams.

BlueStripe Software has been named a “Cool Vendor” in the Gartner “Cool Vendors in Application Performance Monitoring 2012” report which evaluates selected vendors that have innovative, impactful, and intriguing solutions in the Application Performance Monitoring segment of IT Operations management software.

“We consider BlueStripe’s inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner both an honor and an important confirmation of our break-through transaction monitoring approach,” said Chris Neal, CEO and co-founder of BlueStripe Software. “Our FactFinder product is the first APM solution built specifically for IT Operations teams, giving them the exact level of visibility needed to automatically monitor the performance of business transactions, application platforms and the infrastructure they depend on. And, best of all, FactFinder allows them to do this without expensive APM tools, code level instrumentation, or developers to interpret the results.”

FactFinder’s unique approach combines automatic hop-by-hop visibility of enterprise transactions with performance monitoring of the applications, the platforms, and the underlying infrastructure that supports them. This visibility allows operations teams to following transactions in real-time, wherever they go – across tiers, across platforms and across architectures – even into virtual machines, private cloud and third party services. FactFinder’s industry leading discovery and monitoring abilities allow operations support teams to solve critical transaction problems, monitor teams to watch all segments of important business transaction systems, and application roll-out teams to ensure that all components of a new system are ready and available.

According to the Gartner report, it highlights “Cool vendors in APM that should be considered as part of an IT operations management software strategy. This dynamically evolving market segment holds high interest for those in IT Operations, application support, development and quality assurance, and for line-of-business managers.”

The report follows on the company’s recent announcement of record growth for a profitable 2011.
