Application Monitoring Services provide system owners with a means to test application and system availability. Services include automatically generated alerts sent to predefined distribution lists, uptime reporting,  automatic escalation processes, accommodations for scheduled downtime, accommodations for service level agreement hours, and automatically generated Remedy service tickets. Application status is represented on a single dashboard including summarizations using prescribed business rules. At a glance, viewers are able to see the general health of a monitored application. Applications and systems receiving monitoring alerts enable technical teams to work in a more proactive way to solve problems thus preventing impact to customers.
