End-User Experience Intelligence
ObserverLIVE performs ongoing end-user experience testing of web, SaaS, and VoIP services. Designed to rigorously exercise all IT delivery components including clients, servers, applications, and supporting network links, ObserverLIVE delivers detailed visibility of bottlenecks and problem areas with a global perspective.
Hybrid IT Service Validation
Two challenging aspects to managing hybrid IT application performance are establishing visibility between the cloud and on-premises environments and accurately isolating the source of problems between the cloud, virtual, and physical environments. Whether web-based apps or SaaS solutions, ObserverLIVE delivers on this objective of full visibility with root cause analysis through virtual, on-premises, or world-wide cloud instrumentation that constantly evaluates mission-critical business services.
VoIP Performance Certification
Given its real-time nature and sensitivity to contention, VoIP performance is greatly impacted by network quality and optimal QoS definitions. When these degrade or are incorrectly set, end-user experience materially suffers. ObserverLIVE is designed to continuously confirm VoIP health via repeated, simulated calls including setup, data transmission, and tear-down so your IT users never experience a poor call.
Assessing user experience in hybrid IT environments and enforcing service SLAs with providers is essential to effectively supporting your business and demands a new strategy—proactive, ongoing network-link testing. ObserverLIVE makes the process simple by providing deep insight into current and historical trends of network utilization and latency, the foundation of which all your IT service delivery rests.
Remote User Troubleshooting
Rapidly solve user service problems with on-demand, ad-hoc remote diagnostic functionality wherever they are located. Requiring only internet connectivity, pre-configured, virtual, secure agents are easily deployed on end-user systems anywhere in the world with an email and single user mouse click. Once installed, they execute a battery of tests, locate the anomaly, communicate the results to the ObserverLIVE cloud host, and then automatically remove themselves.
Global Operational Awareness
Gain worldwide service visibility and understand real-time end-user experience of your critical IT assets without having to wait for complaints or for the issue to impact the bottom line. Built for flexibility and meant to grow with your business, ObserverLIVE is a hyper-scalable, multi-tenancy architecture offering free and low-cost instrumentation options.
Migrate apps to the cloud and deploy new services globally with complete confidence.
