FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AppFirst Extends Patent-Pending “Miss Nothing” Functionality
Integration of Additional Data Sources Speeds Find/Fix Cycles
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – April 28, 2011 – AppFirst, the only provider of complete data collection and proactive problem resolution solutions for the mid-market, today unveiled significant extensions to its “Miss Nothing” functionality by integrating and correlating other available data sources. Through its ability to access additional data such as open source plug-ins and windows performance counters, AppFirst dramatically shortens the find/fix cycle and delivers a powerful way to troubleshoot issues related to resource utilization, performance and configuration problems. AppFirst will be demonstrating their unique functionality at the Under the Radar Conference being held today in Mountain View, CA.
“Being able to see the context within databases, web servers or app servers, correlated with other data sources in one place is immensely powerful,” said Andrus Adamchik, CEO of ObjectStyle. “Without this capability, I am forced to use multiple tools to get the complete picture I need to resolve application and performance issues.”
AppFirst Delivers Correlated Data from Multiple Sources
For companies in the mid-market, systems and applications running smoothly can mean the difference between life and death. By correlating data from AppFirst Collectors along with data from other sources, IT staff has the context needed to identify and quickly solve application or performance issues. AppFirst’s patent-pending “miss nothing” functionality integrated with other data sources delivers a complete picture for problem resolution on a real-time basis.
“In today’s complex computing environment, often it is forces outside the application itself that cause performance degradation,” said David Roth, founder and CEO of AppFirst. “Whether it’s as simple as a configuration change, or a complex, multi-faceted issue, AppFirst gives you visibility across your entire application stack with the context you need to get directly to the heart of the problem.”
AppFirst is the only independent company today that delivers better problem resolution capabilities by capturing all the data sources needed to reduce find/fix cycles. The company’s Deterministic Root Cause feature identifies the exact server where an issue is occurring, the process on the server causing the issue and what specifically the process is doing to disturb the response time of the application, essentially eliminating the tedious guesswork approach of the look, guess, fix and repeat approach. Coupled with the new ability to add information from outside sources, AppFirst automates the formerly manual process of searching every tier of an application and every layer of the IT infrastructure to identify the source. Hours, days and even weeks of time resolving performance issues are eliminated. With AppFirst technology, users have a true solution — application infrastructure monitoring that is proactive.
