New solution bridges Application Management and Systems Management for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager users

BlueStripe Software - Application Management Solutions

BlueStripe has delivered a valuable extension that any Systems Center Operations Manager user will find indispensable.

BlueStripe Software today released the FactFinder Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, extending the company’s next generation application management solution. The new management pack allows IT administrators to extend management tasks within System Center Operations Manager to include application system and transaction performance problems as a natural part of IT problem solving. The FactFinder extension marks the first integration between Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager and BlueStripe’s award-winning APM solution.

“The gap between systems management and application management solutions has existed far too long,” explained Chris Neal, BlueStripe co-founder and CEO. “With this product delivery, BlueStripe is bridging the application management gap for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager users.”

The new management pack provides a two-way communication channel between FactFinder and System Center Operations Manager. FactFinder application and transaction system alerts flow into the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager console so that all server platform, infrastructure, and application problems can be centralized in one event management platform. Additionally, the new management pack enables seamless problem triage, allowing System Center Operations Manager users to click on problem servers and platforms and immediately see those components in context of live application systems as well as how those application systems are using those components.

“BlueStripe, with their System Center Operations Manager integration, has effectively bridged the gap between server and application management,” said Warren Talbot, Microsoft’s Director of Business Development for Management & Security. “By automatically mapping application dependencies and process-level connections, BlueStripe has delivered a valuable extension that any Systems Center Operations Manager user will find indispensable.”
