BT launches application performance management as a service
BT has launched a new cloud-based application performance management solution called BT Connect Intelligence InfoVista-as-a-Service.
The solution offers BT’s applications management portfolio BT Connect Intelligence on a “as-a-service” basis, including a scalable flexible pricing model.
BT said Infovista-as-a-Service will give enterprises a greater flexibility and cost control during the management of user experience when accessing business critical applications over a corporate LAN or WAN.
It delivers InfoVista’s Ipanema technology via BT’s cloud infrastructure, and is designed to help organisations in the midst of a digital transformation.
Keith Langridge, vice president network services, Global Services, BT, said: “BT is the first in the industry to launch this innovative variant of the proven InfoVista-based application performance management technology. We are providing our customers with even more choice and flexibility as they embark on their digital transformation journeys.”
The new solution is available globally to both BT’s existing network customers and organisations using other network providers.
The software underpinning the solution is delivered from BT’s cloud infrastructure and its management is now possible over the internet.
Louise Maitland, vice president, global channel for BT, InfoVista, said: “Enterprises are rapidly adopting hybrid networks to cope with ever increasing bandwidth demands as they transform into digital businesses.
“BT’s innovative, user-based pricing allows customers to purchase InfoVista’s Ipanema solution in a true SaaS subscription model independent of bandwidth, giving enterprises the flexibility they need to launch new applications and services when they need it.”
