Keynote Announces Cloud Transaction Perspective - Easily Deployable SaaS Product Measures the Performance of Employee and Partner-Facing Apps on Secure Extranets and Intranets
SAN MATEO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
(NASDAQ: KEYN), the
global leader in Internet and mobile cloud testing & monitoring,
today announced the immediate availability of Keynote
Cloud Transaction Perspective®.
Keynote's new on-demand site monitoring service offers enterprise
companies, for the very first time, the ability to leverage all the
power, ease-of-use and versatility of Transaction
Perspective -- the industry's leading SaaS (News - Alert)-based end user experience
monitoring service -- in the cloud.
Cloud Transaction Perspective is the ideal solution for measuring the
end user experience of apps and websites accessible only through secure
extranets and VPN-based Intranets and used by employees located in
branch offices of large enterprise companies and by business partners.
Keynote's SaaS offering is easily, quickly and cost-effectively
deployable and portable anywhere in the cloud, unlike the majority of
current enterprise software-only based solutions that are cumbersome,
time-consuming and expensive to implement, especially for private clouds
that span organizational boundaries.
Transaction Perspective offers portable up-to-the-minute end user
experience monitoring to identify and fix employee, partner and branch
office website and application performance problems fast. It is
based on the same real IE and Firefox browser-based measurement
technology as Keynote's flagship Transaction
Perspective Web performance monitoring service, and now captures end
user experience data via an on-demand software private agent, easily
installable anywhere in a private cloud.
Cloud Transaction Perspective is a private software agent that runs real
Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers to measure and monitor the end
user performance of employee and partner facing apps and websites in a
private cloud. All the monitoring data is processed and available in
real-time via Keynote's SaaS monitoring platform and Web portal, MyKeynote,
with its on-demand dashboards, graphs and alarming which provide
analysis and instant visibility into performance issues. Keynote now
combines flexible monitoring portability with the power and convenience
of its SaaS monitoring platform in one integrated solution for employee
and partner-facing apps and websites located in private cloud
environments, such as secure extranets and intranets.
"Keynote is significantly expanding its value to a broader range of
customers through Cloud Transaction Perspective," said Dennis Drogseth (News - Alert),
vice president, application and business services at EMA. "This
versatile new capability can be applied to a wide variety of use cases,
including support for instances where application services are consumed
by employees or customers on-campus or in localized environments - from
retail outlets, to office buildings, to airports. And Keynote is doing
this with its native strengths in minimized administrative overhead and
all but instant deployment."
"The concept of a user-defined transaction is essential to application
performance monitoring," said Will Cappelli, research vice president at
Gartner. "This is particularly true in cloud-reliant environments where
the transaction acts as the thread holding together multiple services
from the perspective of the end user."
"We are committed to extending our world class Web performance
monitoring capabilities to the many usage scenarios our customers are
dealing with, whether across multiple devices, locations and internal as
well as external-facing applications," comments Vik Chaudhary, vice
president of product management and corporate development at Keynote.
"Most businesses interact with their customers in a variety of ways and
the user experience of each of these is important. Cloud Transaction
Perspective enables our clients to measure the impact of employee and
partner-facing Web applications on user experience in the same way we
monitor their public facing websites today."
* On-demand software agent that is easy to install in any private cloud
* Up-to-the-minute access and reporting, including smart alerts and
* Easy, powerful extensible scripting using KITE, the Keynote Internet
Testing Environment app
Pricing and Availability
Transaction Perspective is available now for a monthly subscription,
starting as low as $100 USD per month, based upon the number of agents
active and measurements captured.
