Happy New Year 2022! In 2021, Exoprise’s critical focus was on improving its product for monitoring digital experiences and mobilizing internal teams to improve customer adoption and SaaS/network experiences everywhere. As Covid continues to dominate the world, IT and business teams are increasingly looking for solutions like Exoprise Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM) to ensure end-users are productive with a seamless work-from-home experience.
Service Watch Desktop
The biggest launch for Exoprise in 2021 was the (formal) introduction of Service Watch Desktop, our endpoint monitoring addition to the Service Watch line of Real-User Monitoring (RUM) or End-user Experience Management (EUEM) products. While we had a handful of customers running our Exoprise private sites in Service Watch mode (for extensive, year-long testing), we had not formally released Service Watch Desktop as a product until 2021.
Numerous updates were released throughout the year including low-level functionality as well as higher-level visualizations:
Important System Resource Capture
Service Watch Desktop captures a huge volume of system resource metrics in real-time for scoring and indexing.
Improved Observability for Microsoft Teams and Thick Client Apps
Network and application teams can monitor the response time (RTT) and packet loss for mission-critical apps such as Teams, Zoom, WebEx, Outlook, OneDrive, etc. and achieve instant visibility on the end-user desktop.
Better Together: CloudReady Synthetics & Real-User Monitoring in One Platform
In 2021, we introduced the capability to run our unique synthetic sensors from the same endpoints and comprehensive services as Service Watch Desktop. Working with customers who wanted to be able to proactively monitor Microsoft 365, Salesforce and GSuite for users that are working from home, we enabled the ability to deploy, migrate, and move around Exoprise synthetics to the same devices that support Service Watch Desktop.
This unique feature enables proactive notifications about network conditions and complete complete coverage for end-users no matter where they work from. Servicing both of these goals in the same platform is critical.
Deploy, Scale, and Start Digital Experience Monitoring Within Minutes!
IT can pre-configure Service Watch Desktop and Service Watch Browser packages. Once the configuration is complete, invite all your end-users or employees to download and run the executable package. Gain insights to resolve issues with SaaS, Microsoft 365, endpoint, or network performance problems in less than five minutes.
New Microsoft 365 and DEM Product Videos
The Exoprise product marketing team released several product videos to enhance customer knowledge about our synthetics and real user monitoring solution and use our platform to solve end-user problems. Visit the Resources section and learn how to monitor Microsoft 365 and SaaS apps.
