Cost
Primary Capability: Transaction Performance Monitoring and
Distributed Application Topology Mapping
Licensing: FactFinder is licensed per guest OS in the managed
environment. Express: $499/agent, Enterprise: $2300/agent.

Additional Capability: Maps and monitors cross-tier transactions
running across on-premises, Azure, or hybrid cloud systems
Product Description: BlueStripe FactFinder maps & monitors the
performance of every business service running in the datacenter, the
private cloud, or a hybrid of both. FactFinder detects service level
problems and then tracks transactions across every tier to pinpoint
where and why they are getting stuck.
System Center Integration: FactFinder integrates with System Center
Operations Manager 2012 to add multi-tier transaction monitoring
and dynamically populated Distributed Application maps to Ops
Manager. These maps include both Microsoft Windows Server and
cross-system components, such as Linux, Solaris, AIX, and

BlueStripe Software - Case Studies
Case Study #1 – State Auto Insurance
Case Study #2 – Unum Insurance
Title: FactFinder Helps State Auto Automate Monitoring in Ops
Manager
Summary: State Auto used FactFinder’s monitoring data within
System Center to create a powerful, automated monitoring platform.
Situation: State Auto uses FactFinder to monitor and diagnose the
cause of service level violations impacting their distributed
applications. However, the company wanted System Center to be the
central nexus for all monitoring.
Solution: State Auto used FactFinder’s out-of-the-box integration
with Operations Manager to automatically create Distributed
Application maps of key business applications. They also integrated
FactFinder’s tier-by-tier service level alerts into Ops Manager.
Benefit: State Auto was able to provide every team an IT a view into
distributed application performance within Operations Manager.
Then, they automated the process of responding to FactFinder’s
alarms with a run-book process created in Orchestrator.
Title: FactFinder Helps Unum Accelerate to 100% Private Cloud
Summary: Unum is an aggressive user of virtualization for their
Microsoft stack based applications, and they were seeking a way to
become 100% virtual & dynamic without sacrificing performance of
their business critical apps.
Solution: FactFinder allowed Unum to certify performance of
applications that were converted onto virtual platforms. Additionally,
production performance issues were quickly isolated, eliminating
“the virtualization blame game”.
Benefit: Unum has fully virtualized their Microsoft stack and
dynamically provisions resources for those applications - all with no
performance penalties.
Customer Quote: “We turned on FactFinder, and the solution
showed us the complete application system in minutes, without any
configuration on our part,”
- Prashanth Kashyap, Senior Infrastructure Engineer, Unum
