SquaredUp for SCOM

The essential dashboard solution for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.

SCOM

Our dashboards have transformed monitoring for enterprises worldwide

The secret to monitoring success? Getting your users engaged.

With inboxes drowning in alerts, many IT pros see SCOM as complex and noisy. Meanwhile, they lack the "eyes-on" visibility they need to keep their systems healthy and applications online.

That’s why we created SquaredUp  it’s the missing piece of the monitoring puzzle.

With fast, easy-to-use dashboards that can be customized to the exact needs of each team, from management to administrators, SquaredUp gets your teams engaged with monitoring. Engaged users leads to investment in getting the right monitoring. And getting the right monitoring leads to monitoring that works.

The result is IT teams that are in control, and systems that stay online.

Enterprise Application Monitoring (EAM)

All the features of Enterprise, plus:

  • Visual Application Discovery and Analysis (VADA)

How it works

  1. 1

    Install in 5 minutes

    SquaredUp 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.

  2. 2

    Start with out-of-the-box dashboards, then create your own

    SquaredUp automatically detects your installed management packs and offers Dashboard Packs with pre-configured dashboards and drilldown views. Out-of-the-box you have immediate access to every alert, object and performance metric stored in SCOM.

    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.

  3. 3

    Publish to wall monitors and share with teams 

    Unlike the SCOM operations console, SquaredUp dashboards aren’t just for SCOM experts. They’re designed to be shared with everyone who needs visibility of your application and infrastructure monitoring. Using our Open Access feature, you can even publish live dashboards to an unlimited number of wall monitors or embedded web views, all for no additional cost.

We started looking at SquaredUp just hoping to deliver some high-level dashboards, only to discover we could use the same tool to automatically map our applications! It’s certainly delivered far more than we originally expected and provided almost instant ROI.
