Today we are unveiling the enterprise version of the AppFirst platform with the option to securely run on-premise, in the cloud or in hybrid scenarios. This next-generation of our platform comes with many other exciting announcements, including a partnership with Accretive to deliver a predictive analytics offering to help enterprises expose, anticipate and intervene in IT risks across organizational silos. This partnership, coupled with AppFirst’s enterprise-grade platform, provides unparalleled insight and predictive capabilities across all layers of an organization’s application stack.
Starting with Accretive, over the coming weeks and months we will announce a series of enterprise focused applications leveraging this platform, consisting of those developed by AppFirst, various partners and the enterprise community.
The Platform: A Universal Timeline of Events
AppFirst’s enterprise platform represents a paradigm shift from traditional monitoring and logging tools. It establishes a complete and universal timeline of events across an enterprise application environment – at a sub-millisecond level. This includes every application call, system event, log file entry, configuration change, third party application or custom code event, and data from thousands of plug-ins. This is accomplished through a patented data collection and aggregation methodology that provides an unmatched level of visibility – all correlated into a universal timeline that can live in the cloud, on-premise or in a hybrid environment. Armed with this platform, enterprises are now able to achieve granular and continuous visibility between IT and the business
“AppFirst is redefining what’s possible for executives looking to optimize the technology that runs their business. And it starts with setting a single sub-millisecond timeline across the entire enterprise stack. Unless you start with perfect data, you cannot achieve true visibility,” said David Roth, CEO and Co-Founder of AppFirst. “We are applying deep predictive analytics and applications on top of the most detailed data in the world. Taken together, this finally offers CIOs the ability to truly manage cost, risk and capacity without fingerpointing or guessing.”
New capabilities of the AppFirst platform include:
- Real-time service topology mapping
- Predictive analytics
- On-premise deployments
Real-time service topology mapping
Customers now have the ability to auto-discover and map their service and application topologies in real-time. AppFirst auto-installs under new custom or third-party application components as they come into your environment. Therefore, you’ll always have an up-to-date view of what is running and how it is running across your enterprise.
By partnering with Accretive to update predictive analytic models in real-time, IT and business leaders can identify system limits, predict issues across the enterprise, and perform what-if analysis on how changing complexity will impact performance quality and cost.
“During the past 12-18 months, the use cases for our platform have extended far beyond incident response and troubleshooting,” continued Roth. “Our partnership with Accretive is the direct result of enterprise organizations looking to holistically optimize the business from the top – all the way down to the database or web server. We are now able to reset the standard for how organizations bridge business to IT.”
“Only the combination of AppFirst and Accretive provides business leaders with the real-time and forward-thinking visibility required for true IT continuity and optimization,” said Dr. Nabil Abuelata, CEO and Founder of Accretive. “Unlike traditional data warehousing and big data analytics technologies, it’s now possible to feed and update predictive models in real-time with a unified dataset to understand what is happening now and in the future. This capability delivers tremendous value to both the core business and IT operations. We are excited to work with AppFirst to change the way enterprises think about optimizing the entire technology chain that supports their business.”
In addition to the core SaaS & Private SaaS offering, customers can easily deploy AppFirst behind their firewall. This is critical for enterprise customers in highly regulated environments and in countries where data needs to securely reside within their borders.
