Monitoring stories

improving IT service quality

Here at Alyvix we just love showcasing actual implemented examples where Alyvix has helped real organizations to monitor their user-facing applications. There's just something about concrete uses that gives them a more immediate impact than generic explanations.

So today we'll consider a typical mid-sized company with a standard accounting/finance department and thus some employees who need to carry out typical accounting tasks. This company integrates all of its internal services with Microsoft's Dynamics AX over RDC, so each employee works on their tasks as a network-based application.

As I'm sure you've experienced for yourself, these networks and systems can have good days and bad days, but what you'd really like is for them to always be there when your employees need them, and to always provide a level of performance that lets them get their jobs done.

So in this article we'll describe how Alyvix can do this monitoring task, ensuring the required level of performance and responsiveness in Dynamics AX accounting applications, by employing a visual monitoring approach. Read on to find out what that is, and how Alyvix can deliver even more benefits to your organization.

Sometimes the best way to see how a software tool can help you is to see directly how it has helped others. Seeing a real implemented example can help take out the abstractness of what software does and how it does it.

In this article we'll take a look at the business case for using Alyvix to monitor your networked, streamed and virtual applications. In particular, we'll look at the performance of a Microsoft Outlook installation from the point of view of a client accessing email over the web.

We'll see how Alyvix's visual monitoring approach can bring IT problems to light, helping you both react to user perceptions of slow applications like email and be proactive in preventing problems from even occuring. Read on to find out even more benefits of Alyvix.
