Rather than use scripting to develop synthetic transactions, Managed Objects sought to create an easy way to use instrumentation. "We built a micro Web server in our monitors. So we just record the URL, open the session and we record everything the end user does," described Giunta. Business Data Integrator, a complement to Business Experience Manager, integrates and cross-references business metrics with IT infrastructure availability and performance data. It requires no scripting or programming to get at business data, and it doesnt require data exports.
Examples of what it can incorporate include the volume of trading data specific to certain portfolios, or how many requests were made to an ATM machine, or the number of goods delivered in a location. "Were internally testing it against our accounting system, so we can see orders, license keys we give to customers—whatever is in your data scheme we can portal and monitor against it," described Giunta.
Managed Objects expects that most of the data will be used for historical reporting to see how technology affects the bottom line, and where investments need to be made to improve it. Both offerings are due next month. Latest Stories by Paula Musich:
