Because of the global competitive environment in which there is no room for IT problems, effective SOA performance monitoring
and alerting are necessary to ensure reliable SOA operations. At the same time, SOA operations must be cost-effective.
However, in the loosely coupled SOA world, services that are components of the same process execute across heterogeneous computing resources. Unlike traditional applications, there is no single group of systems dedicated to running a SOA process to easily monitor. As a result, how can organizations know what's happening—especially if there are performance and availability issues—in their SOA
Progress Actional products have a powerful yet cost-effective SOA performance monitoring and alerting solution that enables companies to operate their SOA reliably and meet SLAs:
For monitoring, Actional's Flow Mapping™ technology auto-discovers and maps the process flow of all services in a SOA transaction end-to-end, revealing service dependencies. It provides this unprecedented visibility without the coding and manual configuration required by other solutions for end-to-end monitoring—lowering IT costs.
