ENow, a Microsoft Independent Software Vendor specializing in the development of software to simplify Microsoft system management, announced the release of ForeSite, a SharePoint management solution.
ENow's ForeSite is designed to help organizations proactively monitor their SharePoint infrastructure, including all of the core underlying technologies such as Microsoft Active Directory, Internet Information Server and SQL. It also includes monitoring SharePoint’s key components including site availability, timer jobs and content databases alerting. ForeSite also includes a suite of reports that help administrators better understand how SharePoint is being used in their environment. In addition, these reports can be used for planning and capacity purposes.
ForeSite is built on top of the award winning ENow Management System platform which is used in over 35 countries by enterprise companies, including Facebook, NYSE, DirecTV, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and CB Richard Ellis. The product features a customizable dashboard with red, yellow, and green lights indicating the health of each monitored server. The One Look solution enables IT support staff to proactively monitor servers in real time. In addition, ENow’s Management System platform is also popular for its customizable reporting, which gives administrators complete flexibility in not only how they create reports, but also how they disseminate the information. “Traditional reporting products only allow you to email a report, resulting in static data,” explains Jay Gundotra, CEO of ENow. “But with ForeSite Personalized Dashboards, each key role in your organization can have access to a customized dashboard that meets their needs and automatically updates.” This unique feature empowers help desk personnel to better service their users and improve response time.
“After the success of Mailscape, our Exchange Monitoring and Reporting product, we have an international customer base spanning 35 countries. These companies expressed a strong interest in having us replicate our approach for SharePoint,” states Mr. Gundotra. “ForeSite was created with the same core ingredients, comprehensive monitoring and reporting features combined with our personalized dashboards. This approach provides Help Desk operators with the ability to quickly diagnose a problem and deliver critical information needed to proactively manage SharePoint farms and avoid costly downtime.”
