MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the application performance monitoring market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes AIMS Innovation (AIMS) with the 2013 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. The company's AIMS for BizTalk solution monitors traffic within a client's BizTalk environment in real time and identifies potential errors in individual business processes. Its ability to send pro-active relevant alerts, combined with its mapping feature that provides users with a dynamic visual representation of their complete BizTalk environment, sets it apart from similar solutions in the market.
To make the most of large organizations' increasing adoption of integration solutions, AIMS developed a monitoring solution for these platforms, particularly Microsoft's BizTalk Server (BizTalk), as it is the most extensively used integration platform in the world. In the near future, AIMS intends to extend its product offering to support integration solutions by other companies, such as IBM and Oracle.
AIMS for BizTalk is an advanced software-based monitoring solution that helps customers reduce their downtime and operating costs. It determines monitoring thresholds for traffic within a BizTalk process environment and sends alerts in case of discrepancies. Uniquely, it provides a graphical, color-coded map of alerts within the BizTalk environment, enabling users to quickly pinpoint a problem area right down to each individual business process.
Unlike other monitoring systems, which require long and tedious installation procedures, AIMS for BizTalk can be installed in five minutes online as a SaaS with a pay-as-you-go pricing model.
"The software requires no configuration or maintenance and intuitively adapts to an enterprise systems' normal behavior, self-optimizing and modifying alerts over time," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Olga Yashkova-Shapiro. "Therefore, it does not require special training or certification. Any IT professional can navigate and find information easily, without altering existing IT settings."
The solution can be installed on-premise or as a Software-as-a-Service from Windows Azure. Finally, AIMS offers a Service Provider version that allows service providers to monitor multiple BizTalk environments remotely using a single dashboard.
One of the key advantages of using the AIMS for BizTalk solution is its ability to ensure higher cost-savings. As it provides pro-active, rather than reactive alerts, it allows users to identify and mitigate potential errors in their BizTalk processes. This leads to optimized performance and reduced downtime, eventually resulting in significant costs-savings.
"AIMS designed the AIMS for BizTalk solution to reduce the complexities of integration within an organization and offer high ease of use," noted Yashkova-Shapiro. "Driven by such a distinct value proposition, AIMS for BizTalk significantly outpaces similar monitoring solutions in the market."
