Enterprise applications have myriad of components, integrations, platforms, infrastructure, management and reporting dependencies. The applications naturally sprawl and develop inter-dependencies producing complicated solutions over time.
CloudFabrix AppDimensions™ delivers application intelligence from various stakeholder viewpoints on a continuous basis by discovering and actively measuring the entire application stack and various interdependencies to help IT and operations team to effectively plan and deliver application agility and governance. Output of the discovery process will be used to create active blueprints and can be integrated with enterprise asset management systems.
Typical enterprise applications consist of multiple tiers, each running a different software and hosted on any kind of platform/infrastructure, on-prem or cloud, with independent scale and life cycle management requirements. In addition, applications have consumers, dependencies and integrations that need be continuously measured and monitored.
AppDimensions™ active application Blueprints serve as a foundation to deliver unified and automated application governance on any platform or infrastructure or cloud. Unlike typical static application blueprints, CloudFabrix Active Blueprints capture the entire stack definition, business outcomes and the dynamic operational needs of applications and associated governance dimensions (e.g. configuration, availability, cost, compliance…) from multiple stakeholder views. Enterprises can achieve standardization, agility and portability across any environment by using application Active Blueprints.
Enterprise applications and IT operations have become extremely complex and produces high volumes of systems and performance related data. Further the data is distributed across various machines, domains and comes in multitude of formats. Traditional operations and management tools will not scale to this extent and deliver insights from multiple dimensions which are relevant in the dynamic digital world.
With CloudFabrix AppDimensions platform, enterprises can obtain real-time analytics using latest technologies such as big data, machine learning and predictive models. It continuously gathers and analyze data from relevant insights and correlate them to the defined outcomes and present a simple to understand roll-up score to communicate conformance or deviation. When deviation occurs, Its cause and impact reports allows users to quickly troubleshoot issues and take recommended corrective actions.
Traditional approaches to IT and application governance involved capturing static information about application and its dependencies aft the fact. In the modern digital era, the governance and security must be embedded and pervasive in a dynamically changing application, infrastructure and platform ecosystem.
AppDimensions™ provides a quantitative and 360-degree approach for multiple stakeholders to continuously evaluate application performance against its intended state. Its roll-up governance score approach and recommendation engine simplifies governance, operations and diagnosis activities through its drill-down insights, analytics and dashboards. This new and outcomes based approach provides a common and consistent application baseline irrespective of underlying environment. It also unifies the teams, processes and technologies seamlessly so any applications supporting the digital initiatives can perform and deliver as intended with optimal efficiency.
