Foglight: Hit the Easy Button for No-Fuss Application Performance Monitoring

When it comes to simplifying Application Performance Monitoring (APM), nothing makes it easier to get started than Quest’s Foglight. And the analysts couldn’t agree more.

This recent Impact Brief from analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates, Inc. (EMA™) touts Foglight’s simplicity. Especially in its ability to be introduced as a single module to address the most pressing application management problems now, and expanded across the enterprise as your monitoring needs expand.

The report also commends Quest for many of the Foglight enhancements introduced this year, like improved support for WebSphere MQ and Exchange, as well as a single view for management of multi-vendor virtual servers. In addition, the Foglight product team — well aware that the user experience involves more than simply performance and availability — has developed an analytics module to help IT understand how application content can impact user experience and behavior.

And speaking of user experience, Quest’s most noteworthy improvements have more to do with the customer than the product itself. Over the past year and a half, Quest invested heavily to improve ease of use, create a modular “pay-as-you-go” product architecture, and deliver faster time–to-value.

Collectively, these improvements make Foglight more appealing and easier than ever.
