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 SquaredUp 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. SquaredUp 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…

Before diving in we recommend that you try SquaredUp 4.0 in a non-production environment to explore all the new features first.

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.
