Research Triangle Park, NC (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
BlueStripe Software, a leading provider of transaction and application monitoring solutions, today announced that PPL Corporation (PPL) has selected BlueStripe’s FactFinder software to manage Application and Transaction Performance for critical business applications.
PPL’s IT Operations team will incorporate FactFinder into the company’s end-to-end monitoring program, adding FactFinder’s dynamic distributed application maps and response-time alerting. The solution will support PPL’s end to end IT monitoring function and dramatically enhance our ability to diagnose performance and availability problems.
“FactFinder gives our Operations teams improved visibility into application performance, which is important for a company the size and complexity of PPL that has several business segments and many critical business applications that simply must be available and performing optimally,” said James E. Schinski, PPL vice president and Chief Information Officer.
FactFinder automatically discovers, maps, and monitors all business transactions running within the data center and across the Cloud. FactFinder measures performance, hop-by-hop, everywhere that transactions go, across tiers, across platforms, and across architectures – even into virtual machines, public, private, and hybrid cloud, as well as third party services. When performance or availability problems occur, FactFinder follows the slow or hung transaction right to the problem component, and then drills down the server stack to determine why the problem occurred.
“We’re proud that PPL chose BlueStripe as a key component of their overall IT Management strategy to provide a powerful distributed application monitoring capability,” said Chris Neal, BlueStripe co-founder and CEO.
BlueStripe Software is a leading provider of Transaction, Application, and Server Monitoring Solutions for IT Operations and Support teams. BlueStripe’s flagship Application Monitoring software, called FactFinder, delivers Transaction Monitoring, Application Management, and Infrastructure Monitoring in a single tool, tracking transactions end-to-end across the data center and through the cloud. This transaction-centric approach allows IT Operations teams to know where Transactions go, where they get stuck, and why. For additional information, please visit http://bluestripe.com.
