Improved SLAs and ensuring client satisfaction
"Applications Manager not only met but surpassed our requirements, making it the clear winner in our research. Versatility, a rich-feature set, and user-friendliness were three major factors that set it apart from other vendors we considered," said Lima. After implementing Applications Manager, the organization harnessed the full potential of its advanced features, leading to a significant transformation in its monitoring capabilities.
The flexibility to set more personalized thresholds allowed for tailored monitoring to meet each client's unique requirements, enhancing DBACorp's capacity to identify and address issues proactively. "The product's customizable reports and dashboards provide us with invaluable real-time insights, enabling informed decision-making and effective optimization of our diverse clients' IT systems," said Lima.
With insights derived from real-time monitoring, the team at DBACorp is able to provide better support to clients when needed. Lima recounts an incident where a financial institution client faced a critical challenge. Due to a database growth issue, the client's systems were at risk of grinding to a halt during peak transaction hours. Applications Manager helped DBACorp intervene and tackle the situation by providing in-depth visibility and precise alerts that enabled the MSP to optimize database performance, archive historical data, and avert a potentially disastrous downtime.
Furthermore, the quantifiable outcomes delivered by Applications Manager have significantly contributed to DBACorp's service level agreement (SLA) enhancement. The capacity to swiftly identify and resolve issues, along with thorough root cause analysis, has resulted in an impressive 80% reduction in the mean time to resolve (MTTR) issues. This improvement translates into significantly reduced downtime and a highly available environment SLA of 99.99%.
