We expect uptime will eventually follow rivals Nimsoft, Zyrion and CopperEgg down the acquisition trail, giving a larger enterprise IT management vendor a strong product for segments of the market it can't otherwise reach.

uptime software Inc., a leader in enterprise IT systems performance, availability, and capacity monitoring and reporting software, was recently the focus of a report by the global IT research firm, 451 Research. The report focused on the latest release of up.time (7.2) and discussed how the 451 Group sees this offering as a considerable M&A target for its ability to serve as a "Big Four" IT monitoring framework replacement, as well as a comprehensive and unified commercial monitoring tool for those looking to move away from risky open-source tools.

Dennis Callaghan, senior analyst for 451 Research, agrees. “We expect uptime will eventually follow rivals Nimsoft, Zyrion and CopperEgg down the acquisition trail, giving a larger enterprise IT management vendor a strong product for segments of the market it can't otherwise reach.” - 451 Research Impact Report, "uptime software sharpens unified view of IT infrastructure." - Dennis Callaghan, 7 November, 2013.

up.time is a unified, comprehensive, and scalable enterprise IT dashboard for server monitoring, network monitoring, and application monitoring.

Callaghan goes on to discuss what he sees in this latest release of up.time, “Toronto-based uptime software continues to be a strong alternative to the Big Four IT management vendors for companies wanting comprehensive and unified performance monitoring. up.time is also a popular upgrade choice for companies looking to move away from resource-intensive and hard-to-manage open-source tools.”

The recently released up.time 7.2 offers enterprise companies a unified view of IT health, including all the layers and systems that provide services to end-users. up.time provides everything that IT managers and system administrators need to stay in control of IT:

1. Customizable and interactive dashboards and views of the entire IT environment and service delivery process (servers, applications, IT services, and the network).
2. Visualization of the data that’s most important to IT, across all IT roles.
