Today at its 2014 Summit User Conference, Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, announced the launch of iWay Sentinel. An addition to the company’s iWay Integration Suite, Sentinel provides a single window for centralized application monitoring and management.
Companies must ensure the health of their information infrastructure across the entire organization to enable smarter decision-making and streamlined business processes. System connectivity issues, server failures, and uninstalled patch updates or other required actions could easily become roadblocks that prevent the timely and accurate processing of data.
iWay Sentinel addresses these issues by providing a web-based interface for the management and monitoring of the iWay Service Manager instances installed across the enterprise. The solution allows organizations to understand the resource utilization of the entire system to remedy potential problems before they become business impediments.
iWay Sentinel also enables organizations to automate the scripting and scheduling of all management tasks, including executing tasks after business hours to limit impact on employee productivity. This reduces the administrative burden on IT and frees resources to focus on strategic business initiatives. In addition, tasks iWay Sentinel offers the ability to:
- Detect failures in server status, message transmission, or performance issues
- Assign a health status to servers, applications, and channels by comparing the health statistics among them based on a customizable algorithm
- Remotely start and stop servers, applications, and channels, and change properties
- Graphically depict this information and drill into individual metrics as needed
“When monitoring multiple servers with numerous applications, it’s critical to understand the overall health of the environment,” said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. “iWay Sentinel serves this need, providing real-time insight into the performance of all iWay Service Manager instances installed across the enterprise. This enhancement to the iWay Integration Suite is the latest in Information Builders’ ongoing effort to help companies make the best possible use of their data, and we’re excited to bring this solution to the market.”
