AdventNet Adds Web Services Monitoring

Upgrades ManageEngine Applications Manager to monitor performance and availability of Service Oriented Architecture

Pleasanton, California, Nov. 07, 2006

AdventNet announced an important update to ManageEngine Applications Manager, an application management software that helps Business managers and application support to cost effectively monitor their business applications. This update’s focus is on helping enterprises monitor their applications that use Service Oriented Architectures.

ManageEngine Applications Manager provides a flexible approach to manage SOA that uses SOAP Web Services. It helps Business managers to configure Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and ensure that business objectives are met.

“SOA introduces concepts of modular software with loose and dynamic coupling with multiple moving parts to be managed in an application with unpredictability during its execution. SOA can therefore increase the number of components a transaction has to traverse before completion, leading to unpredictable performance and availability. Thus enterprises need to take a life cycle approach to managing SOA applications to reduce the increase in unplanned downtime of SOA based applications” Said Milind Govekar, Research VP IT Operations Management Service, Gartner.

“The application is working well, looks good. The entire requirement that we set was handled perfectly. The continuous development of the tool is visible. We are very happy to be able to use ManageEngine Applications Manager” Said Zoltan Toke, Process Development Manager, Nokia. “ Usually all the problems what we had were solved by their support.”

“With more and more customers embracing Service Oriented Architecture, we felt a compelling need to provide out-of-the-box support for SOAP Web Services,” said Gibu K. Mathew, Product Manager at AdventNet. “This will help our customers ensure real-time performance and availability of their mission critical web services and view any trends towards degrading performance.”

ManageEngine Applications Manager provides Agentless monitoring solution that can help provide in-depth monitoring of J2EE Application Servers and Web Applications, Microsoft Applications and synthetic web transactions along with performance monitoring and fault management capability.

Applications Manager provides a Free Edition, which can manage five applications, a Professional Edition, which helps enterprises cost-effectively manage their business applications and an Enterprise Edition supports a distributed architecture for monitoring large server farms.
