Dashboards and alertsDo more with the data you already have
We’re big SCOM fans. It’s one of the most powerful infrastructure monitoring tools on the planet, yet - without context - all that juicy data will often fall by the wayside. Not anymore. With Squared Up you can cut through all the noise put all your monitoring data in the context of your key applications and services. Helping you surface the right information at the right time.
Fast, modern HTML5
The user interface that SCOM deserves - blazing fast, easy to learn and accessible from any browser. A truly modern user experience that engages everyone with your monitoring data.
It takes minutes to create dashboards using our fully interactive designer. We've also made sure you don't need to be a SCOM expert, so specialists across your IT organisation can build the views they need.
Go from zero to monitoring hero by publishing ready-made dashboards across your technology stack, built by experts in the community.
Share unlimited dashboards with an unlimited number of users. Open Access renders dashboards on the server-side and so you can provide your users with access to the latest data at no extra cost.
The SCOM data warehouse is a goldmine of information - recording near real-time metrics from every node in your environment. With Squared Up, the tedious days of generating SCOM reports are behind you.
Total Dashboard Architecture
A concept that sets us apart from the rest, our Total Dashboard Architecture dynamically generates drilldown dashboards for every monitored entity - from applications and servers, to databases and disks.
Wall monitor support
Maximise the impact and visibility of your dashboards on that shiny new 50 inch TV in your operations center, with the dedicated full screen mode that strips out the chrome and focuses on the data.
Easy alert management
No need to deploy the clunky SCOM operations console to your users anymore, Squared Up provides fast, simple access to all the key alert management features - the bane of many SCOM administrators!
Export to Excel
Export your performance reports or even whole dashboards out to Excel for further analysis or sharing. To make your life easier, we don't just export the numbers, we generate graphs in Excel for you too!
Proper use of maintenance mode is key to avoid alert noise. Squared Up gives your operations staff convenient access to maintenance for applications, groups of servers or individual servers. No more excuses!
HTML alert email notifications
Email notifications will still play an important role in your overall monitoring strategy. Now you can upgrade your SCOM emails to 'full colour' HTML and link users directly to alert views in Squared Up.
VisualizationsData that's easy to understand
It’s been well documented that the SCOM console often leaves little to be desired - the answer? Squared Up. Transform all your juicy monitoring data into a stunning array of engaging, easy-to-understand data visualizations. From sparklines to bar charts, from health states to visio diagrams, whatever your monitoring needs - we’ve got you covered. SCOM has never looked so good.
One of the essentials of SCOM, the alert visualisations offer both a summary of alert statistics - for use in a NOC dashboard, for example - and a detailed list that allows for interactive alert management.
Squared Up utilizes SCOMs's health state model so you can create clear, high impact dashboards that describe the health of applications, servers and other monitored objects.
The SLA gauge visualization uses the built-in SCOM Service Level Tracking feature to report on application and server uptime so you can report on service levels and downtime.
Health state history
Combine with health state and SLA visualisation to give a complete picture of downtime of application availability or infrastructure components.
Fire up Visio, open or create any diagram you can imagine, associate with SCOM objects, applications and groups using Visio shape data and then import into Squared Up as a completely custom dashboard.
If you need more fine-grained health state monitoring, the Monitor tile shows individual SCOM monitor health in a variety of visualisations to suit the dashboarding need.
One of the core visualisations, the line charts have been carefully designed to deliver clarity, style and functionality for your SCOM data warehouse performance data.
A compact way of quickly spotting trends and spikes in your performance data.
Often used with the 'top N' reporting features, bar charts allow you to quickly focus on key resource usage metrics such as disk space and network utilisation.
Use custom images - from world maps to company logos - to provide meaning and context to your dashboards.
Custom web content
If you're keen to roll up your sleeves and author a bit of HTML, use the Web tile to take your dashboards that extra step and add custom web content.
Advanced matrix visualizations
Saving the best until last, the Matrix tile combines multiple visualisations into compact, data-rich grids giving you at-a-glance dashboards for every scenario.
Application MonitoringIT made simple
The world has moved on from infrastructure monitoring. Your business cares about applications, not servers and disks. Sure, Application Performance Management (APM) tools offer a lot of promise, but with enterprise IT typically responsible for hundreds or even thousands of applications, they’re not suited for the vast majority of enterprise applications. This is where our unique Visual Application Discovery & Analysis (VADA) feature steps in. Map and monitor all your enterprise applications using the data the already have.
EA health model
Configure availability monitoring, map your applications and model dependencies using the Squared Up Enterprise Application (EA) class. It's SCOM distributed applications done right.
Enterprise Application Designer
Model your applications and save discoveries into SCOM using the Squared Up Enterprise Application (EA) Designer - replacing traditional SCOM distributed applications.
Visual Application Discovery & Analysis
At the heart of our Enterprise Application Monitoring solution is the ground-breaking VADA technology. VADA leverages the SCOM agent to dynamically map your applications across your infrastructure.
Load balancer mapping
By working closely with our SCOM management pack partners, VADA also supports mapping across load balancers such as F5.
Map your applications down to the individual websites, services and databases using our ground-breaking VADA technology.
Use the EA Designer to configure URL or TCP- based outside-in availability monitoring of your applications, enabling you to surface meaningful application status dashboards and availability reporting to your business.
Out-of-the-box application dashboards allow you to rapidly deliver meaningful, end-to-end application monitoring to stakeholders across your organisation.
Use your application dashboards to report operational status and uptime of all of your applications to your business.
Node dependency monitoring
The EA Designer also allow you to automatically setup TCP availability monitoring of each of the application components, giving your teams meaningful alerts for fast issue identification.
PowerShell availability monitoring
In addition to URL and TCP monitoring, our powerful custom PowerShell availability monitoring enables you to measure the availability of any application.
Service status dashboards
Update your business dashboards with accurate availability information and meaningful status messages for your service desk and end users.
IntegrationsAll the data you need in one place
A single pane of glass is one of the most over used phrases in IT, but to fully appreciate application performance you need to look beyond SCOM. Hence the development of our custom integration and WebAPI tiles. Now you can dynamically pull in data from your ITSM and log analytics providers - in the context of your key applications and services - so you can surface the root cause for application performance issues in just a few clicks.
Ridiculously easy, but ultimately very powerful, the SQL tile enables you to query any SQL database in your environment - from complex data warehouse analytics to business data from external systems.
Squared Up isn't the only tool out there with awesome visualisations, so we allow you to create mashups across your web-based tooling using HTML iframes embedded seamlessly within your dashboards.
SCOM agent tasks
For advanced data integrations, or for data that needs to come directly from one of your monitored servers, use SCOM tasks to query data on demand using the SCOM infrastructure. Need help authoring SCOM tasks? We have you covered there too with our free Community PowerShell MP.
Almost every enterprise or cloud product these days has a web-based API, and the WebAPI tile enables you to integrate data from those products directly into your dashboards.

Enterprise ReadyDeliver meaningful results, fast
Enterprise software usually comes with a hefty price tag and takes forever to deploy. Not so with Squared Up. Simply run the installer (to create an IIS app), point it at SCOM, and you’re good to go! The whole process usually takes about ten minutes. Better still, our annual subscription model means you can scale cost depending on your usage. Mapping and monitoring your applications has never been so affordable.
Configure multiple Squared Up web servers to be highly available using just a simple network share, ensuring your dashboards are always there for your operations teams.
Implementing full access control for your dashboards, Team Folders enables you to deliver dashboards and delegate control to different teams within your organisation (or to different clients if you are service provider).
Forms & Windows Authentication
Use either forms logon (username and password) or integrated Windows Authentication depending on your requirements.
Squared Up integrates with official SCOM API (and never directly to the ops database) meaning that every SCOM data query and operations is subject to role-based access control.
No new databases
