Up until this point, IT's strategic importance to the business has been typically underplayed - and with only 9% of IT departments admitting they use business related metrics to measure success, it's easy to see where this confusion lies. The business cares about applications, not servers and disks.
Unable to scale application-focused monitoring to their entire IT estate, IT are typically embroiled in a constant battle to make sense from all the infrastructure monitoring noise. Leaving very little time to focus on long-term, strategic projects. Ultimately, IT spend the majority of their time trying to figure out why one of their hundreds of apps are down.
Enter Squared Up 4.0 - true end-to-end application monitoring for all your business applications.
It's our mission to help our customers do more with the data they already have - and this starts with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). Organizations don't need more data, they need context. Squared Up 4.0 leverages your existing investment in SCOM and puts all that juicy monitoring data in the context of key applications and services - helping IT to quickly isolate the root cause. Better yet, we can dynamically pull in information from all your other disparate monitoring tools, so you can build a comprehensive overview for application performance.
In short, it's Distributed Applications done right...
Squared Up 4.0 has been in development for just over a year - and with that comes a lot of exciting new features. Features we couldn't do justice in written form. So, with that in mind, if you haven't seen our release webinar then it really is a must-watch.
That was the first of many videos we'll produce for Squared Up 4.0 - we already have big plans for a new, in-depth training series. If this sounds of interest, then you can pre-register for the series via the bright orange button below. This way we can keep you in the loop when the new series is about to go live. You won't want to miss it.
Squared Up 4.0 sees a bunch of awesome new features added to the product - so many in fact, we simply couldn't fit them all one one page. Yes, you can still build awesome SCOM dashboards, but now you can do much, much more.
The introduction of our new Enterprise Application model enables you to scale application-focused monitoring to your entire organization, including:
In addition, we’re making it easier to roll out Squared Up across your entire IT organisation with the introduction of Team Folders, allowing you to deliver a personalised dashboard and monitoring experience to each of your IT teams.
You'll also see some awesome new dashboard features, including richer data visualisations with the Matrix Tile, improved Community Dashboards integration and, of course, we continue to push the performance boundaries of SCOM with our fastest dashboards yet.
There's a few options available to you - so please make sure you read through these next steps carefully before diving in.
Before diving in we recommend that you try Squared Up 4.0 in a non-production environment to explore all the new features first. With that in mind, all Squared Up customers are entitled to a free 30 day trial license key that provides access to all the new features - including EAM Plus - regardless of your current license edition.
Great stuff! This release is now production-ready and fully supported. However, before you dive in we recommend that you hop on over to our support site and check out the release notes first.
Next up is our upgrade assessment tool - you should run this to check whether your v3 environment is suitable to upgrade. And finally, once that's been ticked off, you will need to upgrade you licenses for the upgrade.
We told you there were a tonne of exciting, new features!
If we've done our job, you should be raring to get going with Squared Up 4.0. If so, you'll be pleased to learn that our Coffee Break host, Matthew Long, is all set to deliver a new, in-depth training series. You can register your interest for this webinar series via the form below.
