Heroix launched a new dashboard for Heroix Longitude, adding even more ease-of use for both IT and non-technical staff.

These new dashboards present up-to-date summary and detailed information on the status of applications, servers, and networks.

The visual displays make it even easier and faster for IT system administrators or business users to see, in a single glance, any threats to continuous IT services.

By viewing summarized performance information via large, color-coded pie charts, Longitude users can see immediately if an application or server is at or approaching a pre-determined threshold that could create problems for individual or groups of users. If a pie chart is all green, the user knows everything is running as planned. If a wedge of the pie is orange or red, they can immediately click on that segment and see the potential problem. This allows for swift diagnosis and keeps systems running smoothly and meeting promised SLAs.

"CIOs and CTOs, as well as IT directors and other high-level managers, want the ability to see - in an instant - the health of their applications and the IT resources they manage," explained Dick Levin, VP of Development, Heroix. "Their responsibility to meet SLA commitments is closely linked with their ability to immediately understand the status of the company's IT environment, without spending hours learning overly complex monitoring software."

"Another aid that Longitude has always provided - fast and easy customization - has been extended to both our dashboard and reporting, so that companies can make the software truly meet their own unique needs," continued Levin.

For example, Longitude's new grouping capability allows users to view their IT resources based on line of business, geography, or any other organizational groups of their choosing. The customization takes only a few seconds to set up and the process is so intuitive that even users brand new to Longitude can do it quickly.

Heroix has also completely redesigned the reporting options in this new version of Longitude using the latest version of Ext JS. Users can get to reports faster, with more detail and fewer clicks and see reports in easy-to-read full-screen graphics.

With this release, the company has added monitoring for the newest version of Microsoft SQL Server: SQL Server 2012.
