Over the years, the company has achieved significant milestones by addressing the needs of network teams to monitor complex applications with in-depth visibility and analysis for fast issue resolution.
"Utilizing application-aware network performance monitoring solutions like the Observer platform offer a cost-effective way to immediately slash troubleshooting times, optimize service availability, and ensure a positive user experience,” said Bojan Simic, president and principal analyst for TRAC Research.
An example of in-depth transaction analysis contributing to revenue can be seen in the number of IT teams utilizing the Observer platform for assessing the performance of VoIP and videoconferencing platforms.
