Transaction and Dependency monitoring for cross-system applications
Real-time Distributed App Maps in System Center

Additional Capability: Mapsand monitors cross-tier transactions running across on-premises, Azure, or hybrid cloud systems
Product Description: BlueStripe FactFinder maps & monitors the performance of every business service running in the datacenter, the private cloud, or a hybrid of both. FactFinder detects service level problems and then tracks transactions across every tier to pinpoint where and why they are getting stuck.
System Center Integration: FactFinder integrates with System Center Operations Manager 2012 to add multi-tier transaction monitoring and dynamically populated Distributed Application maps to Ops Manager. These maps include both Microsoft Windows Server and cross-system components, such as Linux, Solaris, AIX, and mainframe.

Title: FactFinder Helps State Auto Automate Monitoring in Ops Manager
Summary: State Auto used FactFinder’s monitoring data within System Center to create a powerful, automated monitoring platform.
Situation: State Auto uses FactFinder to monitor and diagnose the cause of service level violations impacting their distributed applications. However, the company wanted System Center to be the central nexus for all monitoring.
Solution: State Auto used FactFinder’s out-of-the-box integration with Operations Manager to automatically create Distributed Application maps of key business applications. They also integrated FactFinder’s tier-by-tier service level alerts into Ops Manager.
Benefit: State Auto was able to provide every team an IT a view into distributed application performance within Operations Manager. Then, they automated the process of responding to FactFinder’s alarms with a run-book process created in Orchestrator.
Title: FactFinder Helps Unum Accelerate to 100% Private Cloud
Summary: Unum is an aggressive user of virtualization for their Microsoft stack based applications, and they were seeking a way to become 100% virtual & dynamic without sacrificing performance of their business critical apps.
Solution: FactFinder allowed Unum to certify performance of applications that were converted onto virtual platforms. Additionally, production performance issues were quickly isolated, eliminating “the virtualization blame game”.
Benefit: Unum has fully virtualized their Microsoft stack and dynamically provisions resources for those applications - all with no performance penalties.
Customer Quote: “We turned on FactFinder, and the solution showed us the complete application system in minutes, without any configuration on our part,”
