BlueStripe Software, a provider of application transaction management solutions, has released FactFinder v5.5, introducing new transaction performance management capabilities that enable the transaction monitoring solution to bridge the gap between overall application performance, individual transaction performance and the underlying infrastructure on which applications depend.

BlueStripe’s FactFinder automatically follows transactions in real-time, wherever they go – across tiers, across platforms and across architectures – even into virtual machines, private cloud, and third party services. This visibility into all the interconnections and dependencies, combined with monitoring and mapping, root cause analysis, benchmarking, forecasting and planning, enables IT Operations teams to more effectively manage application and transaction availability

FactFinder v5.5 provides users with new transaction monitoring and performance management capabilities, including:

· Transaction Service Level Monitoring Dashboards, showing the performance and availability status of specific transactions

· Cross Machine Transaction Views, providing hop-by-hop transaction performance across the entire infrastructure

· Transaction Explorer Problem Solving Workbench, isolates and maps individual transaction systems across the infrastructure so that users can follow performance problems across the transaction for root cause analysis

“Traditional approaches to managing applications and transactions have not been successful due to fragile instrumentation and a lack of integrated visibility into the systems that support the transactions,” said Vic Nyman, COO of BlueStripe. “By monitoring transaction performance hop-by-hop, FactFinder goes beyond traditional systems management and application performance management solutions to deliver complete awareness of availability and performance for all applications and transactions. By removing inefficient and manual processes, BlueStripe enables IT Operations teams to respond more accurately and timely to issues.”

FactFinder reduces the mean time to resolution for critical incidents by up to 90 percent and improves operational efficiency by allowing IT Operations team members to focus on high value activities, while a single team member handles problem triage.

IT Operations teams can also improve the reliability of application upgrades and roll-outs with increased confidence in the ability to see all application transactions across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

FactFinder users can move from reactive application performance management to proactive application transaction management by avoiding problems usually caused by surprise changes and unknown effects.
