FAIRFAX, VA – February 8, 2017 – Today, Sightline Systems announces the release of EDM 5.0. The newest release of EDM 5.0 is the next generation of data collection and advanced performance monitoring tools designed to provide a more powerful view into every aspect of a company’s IT infrastructure. EDM 5.0 includes exciting new upgrades: customizable charts, enhanced displays and reports, improved functionality and menu options, new alerting functions, and the addition of SightlineDB. Each of these enhancements is designed to help users maintain maximum control of their IT environments and stay ahead of the curve.
EDM 5.0 enables IT teams to continuously monitor the entire system in real time in order to proactively predict performance issues and prevent unplanned downtime and data loss. Its highly interactive, visual tools are used to accelerate discovery and investigation within an IT infrastructure. This means that the IT team experiences faster time to insight and achieves results in minutes, replacing days of manual work copying and manipulating various data sets.
Users experience greater control over how to organize, aggregate and view critical data with EDM 5.0. The newly updated software now includes SightlineDB, which provides users with substantially reduced data storage requirements, the ability to read and write operations 10 times faster than with traditional files, the ability to store more granular data, down to the millisecond per data source, in addition to more flexible analytical capability.
Additional enhancements include updated charting and dashboards to provide more robust menu options with enhanced control over configuring and saving charts. EDM 5.0 will also render additional useful information within charts to enhance the user experience. EDM 5.0 supports new chart types, allowing users more ways to view their data. Improved localization with the ability to define the date and time format is used throughout the EDM UI.
Other new features include enhanced alert creation which allows users to easily create and define alerts from any chart, user-configurable alert emails, and the ability to export Event List data to a .csv file.
“According to a recent study, IT downtime costs companies an average of $330,000 per hour. While many companies have significantly invested in IT performance monitoring tools, many still toil over how to proactively ensure that systems are always working which is a recipe for disaster,” comments Brandon Witte, president and CEO of Sightline Systems. “The Sightline EDM 5.0 platform helps IT teams efficiently and effectively analyze data and information from the entire IT infrastructure faster than ever before. SightlineDB as well as EDM’s new dashboards, charts and graphs make it easier than ever to visualize complex data, which in turn, makes it easier for IT teams to ensure systems are always operating. No other analytics and monitoring software can provide insight as quickly or as accurately as EDM 5.0 can.”
