AUSTIN, TX and COLUMBIA, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- BoxTone, the monitoring company for the mobile era, announced the availability of its BoxTone Exchange ActiveSync HealthCheck, a free service available to all organizations to identify potentially hazardous issues that degrade mobile performance and impact users. The free HealthCheck is based on the BoxTone for Exchange ActiveSync software, a Mobile Service Management solution that delivers complete mobile infrastructure visibility, enabling enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs) to proactively monitor and support their end-to-end Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) environments. With email an indispensable application for today's mobile workforce, BoxTone for Exchange ActiveSync ensures IT and support teams can quickly and easily find and fix issues hidden in their EAS deployments, often before users are even affected.
The free BoxTone EAS HealthCheck, available at www.boxtone.com/healthcheck, provides a snapshot analysis of CAS logs over 24-hour period to identify lurking issues. Using automated analytics to parse CAS log data, the service ferrets out hundreds of potential problems that can take down users, groups of users and entire environments, such as those caused by mobile device upgrades and poor load balancing across Client Access Servers (CAS). Once the analysis is complete, BoxTone provides a full diagnostic report, review of key metrics and findings, and recommendations for optimization and immediate improvement.
To move beyond the one-time snapshot view of the EAS HealthCheck, Microsoft Exchange Professionals who need long-term visibility and control can upgrade to the full BoxTone for Exchange ActiveSync solution. The most comprehensive solution for real-time mobile monitoring, BoxTone for Exchange ActiveSync uses deep diagnostics for all EAS components, identifying service issues across the entirety of the mobile infrastructure -- from device and wireless carrier, across firewalls and gateways, to Exchange CAS and mailbox servers including MDM and 3rd party gateways/proxies, to other backend infrastructure.
"Organizations have effectively optimized Exchange for their PC environments. However, in the new mobile gold rush, with thousands of additional smartphones and tablets now connecting to Exchange, there are frequently unexpected and unpredictable issues that ripple throughout the enterprise. These can significantly degrade or disrupt services, leading to disconnected and disgruntled workers, and ultimately resulting in lost productivity and burdensome spikes on IT support," said Brian Reed, Chief Product Officer of BoxTone.
Even with a highly tuned PC-based Exchange environment, IT staff can find themselves unprepared and ill-equipped to pinpoint and resolve issues as more device types and endpoints access email through growing mobile workforces and BYOD. Support automation built into BoxTone for Exchange ActiveSync lets administrators and front line service desk monitor, proactively troubleshoot and quickly fix issues before mobile email, calendar, contact, task and other functions are affected.
For wide-scale, mission-critical deployments relying on Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, organizations can cut the number of service-impacting mobile incidents by 30%; boost first-call resolution rate for mobile issues by 70%; reduce mobile escalations from service desk to Exchange administrators by 70%; and lower the mean-time-to-resolution of Exchange ActiveSync problems by 70%.
BoxTone is the only platform that delivers patented technology to proactively monitor and support the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync service in real time -- as well as other mobile services and platforms including BlackBerry, Good Technology, MDM gateways/proxies and more -- across all infrastructure components for all device ownership models.
"Mobile is no longer a starter project for companies; it's now a de facto standard requirement for productivity with users expecting always-on quality-of-service and experience. For the maturing mobile enterprise environment, Exchange teams now have a free HealthCheck to get started and a commercial software solution for the long term to pre-emptively address issues before they impact the workforce," Reed added.
Get your free HealthCheck and see live demos at BoxTone Booth #405 at Amplify Microsoft Exchange Conference, March 30 - April 2, 2014 in Austin, Texas. Or register online for a free HealthCheck HERE.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
