In addition, by having all service team members share an easy-to-use interface that is tailored to each of their requirements minimizes learning curves, enhances operational efficiency and ensures user satisfaction by providing a production-grade monitor to IT staff that are working in staging environments.
Attend this webinar to discover how a converged APM/IPM solution can be leveraged effectively in pre-production to eliminate bottlenecks in testing, delays, re-work or increased deployment risk.
Troubleshooting slow application problems is one of the toughest challenges that IT organizations face in today's web-based, cloud-driven and dynamic environments. Given the distributed and inter-dependent nature of application frameworks, tracking just the application up/down status and basic CPU and memory utilization metrics is not sufficient anymore. IT administrators need visibility of the real user experience, code-level insights into transaction processing and real-time analysis of the health of the supporting infrastructure.
Historically, IT organizations have been using different tools for monitoring the application and infrastructure tiers. Lack of integration, need for manual analysis, and expert-intensive troubleshooting have been some of the drawbacks of such a multi-tool strategy. Join us for this webinar to discover how converged application and infrastructure performance monitoring can be achieved to:
-Provide a one-stop solution for unified and integrated performance visibility of the application and infrastructure tiers
-Proactively detect user experience issues before online business is impacted
-Trace business transactions and isolate the exact cause of application slowness
-Get code-level visibility to identify inefficient application code and slow database queries
-Automatically map application dependencies within the infrastructure to pinpoint the root cause of the problem
IT transformation is less about going from one point to another than it is about making the whole greater than the sum of its parts. The historical fragmentation of IT monitoring limits visibility and transparency, often at critical times during a transformation journey.
Join us for this ITSM Academy webinar where John Worthington, Product Management Director at eG Innovations will outline what IT transformation is all about, what IT monitoring is and why it's important to ITSM and DevOps as well as how you can leverage monitoring as part of a successful IT transformation program.
Today, there are a multitude of ways to deliver applications to end users – traditionally via on-premise infrastructures, on mobile devices and from the cloud. With the growing diversity of services delivered comes increased complexity of interconnected platforms and their management.

Organizations are looking for the right tools to monitor their Citrix farms. However, this is no easy task. There are several tools available in the market today - some from Citrix itself such as Director and NetScaler MAS, and others from third-party vendors like eG Innovations, Goliath Technologies, ControlUp, and more. Before investing in a Citrix monitoring tool, Citrix administration teams must be well-informed of what each of these tools is capable of, what use cases they serve, and their benefits and shortcomings.
View (or join us for) this webinar as Rob Beekmans, Solutions Architect at PQR gives a vendor-neutral analysis of various monitoring tools with the objective of making you aware of the available options, and helping you choose the best monitoring tool for your Citrix deployment. Be informed, choose wisely!
While there are many products that claim to provide cloud monitoring, the level of granularity provided by different solutions can vary significantly. But the devil’s in the details; the granularity provided by your performance monitoring solution will directly impact your ability to automatically diagnose performance issues before users are impacted.
Join us for this webinar where John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG Innovations discusses how managing private, public, and traditional data centers all together is no longer possible with multiple disparate monitors. Organizations must find a way to unify monitoring to successfully migrate digital business services to tomorrow’s hybrid cloud environments.
You will discover how to:
- Determine the critical requirements for assuring the performance of your digital business services as you migrate to the cloud
- Learn the difference between universal and unified monitoring and how it can help you assure cross-cloud delivery of critical IT services

IT performance management isn’t about monitoring CPU, memory or disk space any more. One of the toughest application performance challenges for any IT administrator is when a user says "my application is slow". You have to be able to quickly determine what the real cause of the problem is - is it in the network, the database, the application, storage? The fact that applications are using multi-tier architectures and being deployed in cloud and virtualized infrastructures only adds to the challenge.
Join us for this webinar where Frank Ohlhorst, Enterprise IT Analyst & Consultant and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, will discuss the best practices for troubleshooting and prevention so even before a user complains their application is slow, you can pinpoint exactly where the cause of a problem lies – ensuring quick resolution and a positive user experience.
