This paper describes how Microsoft partnered with BlueStripe to integrate BlueStripe's FactFinder end-to-end transaction monitoring tool with System Center 2012. As a result, System Center users get complete, multi-tier application management. In one view, they can see how each system affects application service levels.
Rising infrastructure complexity has replaced code defects as the main source of transaction performance problems. This complexity creates management challenges for IT Operations and Lines of Business. To handle these challenges, their transaction management tools must track transactions across every component and continue to work without developer involvement.
Service-Oriented IT Operations (SOITO) is a new concept based on the premise that "each component of the IT Infrastructure should be measured by its impact on user service levels." This new BlueStripe whitepaper lays out the three laws of Service Oriented IT Operations and provides concrete steps for IT Operations leaders to improve their processes and overall service level delivery.
Enlightened organizations have figured out that the key to better application performance and availability is transaction performance management, but their APM and BTM tools are falling short. This whitepaper explores a new pragmatic approach to application and transaction monitoring.
