Project Leadership Associates Expands Cloud Service Offerings With Crowd-Powered Performance Monitoring Solutions From Exoprise

New Integration and Managed Services Offerings Enable Customers to Leverage Cloud Apps and Services With Confidence

WALTHAM, MA and CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- Project Leadership Associates (PLA), a business and technology consulting firm, has integrated performance monitoring solutions from Exoprise into its cloud services practices to ensure customers leveraging cloud-based applications have the best availability, performance, and user experience possible. PLA expects the addition of Exoprise CloudReady Monitor to help grow its cloud services business by expanding its ability to manage cloud and SaaS-based services and help its customers move to the cloud with visibility and confidence. The announcement coincides with the start of Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference taking place this week in Washington D.C.

PLA now includes CloudReady Monitor in its Office 365 Solutions Delivery practice to diagnose and fix issues impacting service performance and user experience before and during Office 365 migrations. In addition, PLA uses the solution in its Managed Services practice to provide continuous availability and performance monitoring and alerting for production environments they manage. PLA will also resell licenses of Exoprise CloudReady to customers.

"We've seen tremendous interest within our customer base in cloud-based solutions like Office 365," said Alan Bratton, CEO at Project Leadership Associates. "The operational benefits to both IT and the business are substantial. But organizations often hesitate due to concerns about reliable user access to email and documents. Exoprise's end-to-end approach to monitoring cloud apps and services helps us ensure our migration projects and managed deployments run smoothly, and enables us to bring new value added offerings to our customers."

Exoprise CloudReady is the only application performance monitoring solution that provides real-time performance and availability insight into mission-critical cloud offerings including Microsoft Office 365 and Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Apps and Salesforce.com. It enables users to analyze measurements from their service locations against global and regional crowd data, helping to quickly identify and fix performance-impacting issues regardless of where they happen.

Unlike on-premise deployments, where IT teams can monitor performance via direct access to the servers running their applications, visibility to cloud-based apps and websites are typically limited to basic service dashboards. While these dashboards can provide current status of a particular app or service, they do not provide real-time end-to-end performance data, nor can they provide information on the health and availability of the various networks -- the customer's, the ISP's, the regional backbone, etc. connecting the users to the service.

"The rapid growth of cloud-based apps and services creates both opportunities and challenges for VARs, systems integrators, and managed service providers," said Mark Yohai, vice president of sales and business development at Exoprise. "In order to maintain and grow their customer bases, these players are looking to update their offerings to address the needs of organizations adopting these new apps and services. By leveraging Exoprise CloudReady, Project Leadership Associates is taking a leadership position, addressing some of the key concerns IT teams have with the cloud: visibility and control of application availability and performance."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
