A first-class IT monitoring experience for universities, powered by SCOM
It's no secret that Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) is a hugely powerful enterprise IT monitoring platform, capable of rich, cross-platform monitoring and full-stack visibility.
It's also no secret that many SCOM installations are ultimately unsuccessful, with users immediately turned off by the complexity and poor performance of the SCOM console, unable to get past all the noise and to the insights they need.
Squared Up has changed all that, totally transforming SCOM for leading universities all around the world, taking it from an unloved platform slowly gathering dust to the centrepiece of a successful, modern, application-centric monitoring stategy.
“We couldn't be happier with Squared Up, it's been absolutely central to
making our SCOM deployment such a success.”
- Lou Novotny, Senior IT Manager, University of Maryland Medical System
Our unique automatic application discovery feature allows you to put the application model at the heart of your IT monitoring experience - all without introducing additional agents, infrastructure or databases - and engage users across the disparate, silo'd teams involved in successful application delivery.
Squared Up's ethos of building on top of organizations' existing investments and delivering a low-cost solution that produces rapid results and ROI, has chimed perfectly with universities eager to make the most of their current investments rather than reinvent the wheel by introducing expensive new solutions which simply replicate current capabilities.
