Your IT operations will never look the same again
Have you ever heard SCOM described as an alert spam engine? We have.
While your inboxes are drowning in alerts, your IT organization is starved of clear, actionable monitoring that keep your applications online and your systems healthy.
That’s why we created Squared Up. It’s the missing piece of the puzzle.
Visibility for every team
For IT managers, NOCs, service desks and even end users, Squared Up communicates the health of your enterprise IT infrastructure and applications in clear, accessible dashboards, putting an end to questions asking “is the app down”?
Our range of visualizations – which includes Visio integration for the ultimate in customization – delivers everything from current availability in red–green status, to SLA reporting and performance graphing for trending and analysis.
Publish your dashboards to wall monitors and SharePoint with our unique Open Access technology, or give your users the power to dynamically drilldown into any dashboard to fully understand the situation behind the summary.
For application and support teams responsible for delivering business-critical services, from Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint and Lync to custom line-of-business applications, Squared Up dashboards provide end-to-end visibility of application health and performance.
With everything from URL availability to SQL transaction times monitored, your teams have all the data they need at their fingertips to locate root causes of application downtime.
For infrastructure teams across your enterprise IT organization, Squared Up instantly surfaces all of the data from your SCOM management packs – Windows or Linux, SQL or Oracle, HyperV or VMWare, Dell or HP, F5 or NetScaler, Citrix or RDS, Azure or AWS, or even your custom MP authoring.
Start with Dashboard Packs designed by management pack partners and community experts, or use our intuitive Dashboard Designer to create your perfect dashboards and drilldowns – allowing your infrastructure teams to keep an eye on the metrics and monitors that matter, and rapidly respond to issues.
How it works
INSTALL IN 5 MINUTES
Squared Up is a web application that can be dropped into any SCOM management group – either directly on a management server, on an existing web console server or a dedicated server. It requires no new databases, Windows Services or agents, which means it can be installed in under 5 minutes. Simply point at your SCOM management server to start the data flowing.
INSTANT DASHBOARDS AND DRILLDOWNS
Out-of-the-box you have immediate access to every alert, object and performance metric stored in SCOM. Squared Up automatically detects your installed management packs and offers Dashboard Packs with pre-configured dashboards and drilldown views.
Our powerful and intuitive Dashboard Designer makes creating custom dashboards and drilldowns a breeze. Choose your tile type, select your data from SCOM and configure the visualization all in our fully interactive, web-based visual editor.
EASY DATA WAREHOUSE REPORTING
Squared Up taps directly into your SCOM data warehouse to give your users direct access to both near real-time and historical performance data. Performance reporting in Squared Up is fast, simple and fully self-service, leaving the SCOM Reporting Console to become a relic of the past.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Mobile and tablet access
Need to troubleshoot while out of the office? Or walk into a meeting with a dashboard on a tablet? All of the Squared Up dashboards, alerts and performance views are available across all devices.
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.
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.
Azure Log Analytics
SCOM and Azure Log Analytics data in a single view - anything from IIS log files in server drilldowns to security and change audit logs for your applications.
Squared Up is so simple to use; it took me literally 5 minutes to create my first dashboard.
We couldn’t be happier with Squared Up, it’s been absolutely central to making our SCOM deployment such a success.
Squared Up is a modern, amazingly fast, multi-platform web console and it’s a must-have for every Operations Manager deployment.
