BALTIMORE, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- AVIcode, Inc., a leading provider of real-time, always-on application monitoring solutions, today announced that Daptiv, a leader in on-demand collaborative business software, is using AVIcode Intercept Studio to monitor its production application servers which host the company's core business applications used by its customers to manage work in their organizations.

Daptiv was challenged with diagnosing complex problems affecting its suite of hosted applications. Daptiv's customers rely on these applications to streamline the day-to-day interaction of their employees and improve collaboration, while also reducing the complexity of managing multiple teams, projects and tasks. In addition, Daptiv's solutions provide their customers with unparalleled insight into project execution and the ability to measure project progress against key business priorities. This information enables Daptiv's customers to make well-informed decisions that positively impact their bottom line. If Daptiv is not able to provide 100 percent uptime and reliability, its customers' ability to meet corporate goals and revenue targets can be seriously compromised.

Before implementing AVIcode, Daptiv spent a significant amount of time identifying application issues and their causes across various business units including support, operations and development, in order to optimize their customers' experience. This manual process resulted in slower than desired problem resolution and had the potential to negatively impact customers. Daptiv recognized the need for a real-time solution that was capable of proactively monitoring all production application servers, in order to reduce the staff time required to isolate and correct problems, and ultimately improve its customers' experience. After a thorough search, Daptiv selected AVIcode Intercept Studio for its comprehensive, always-on capabilities and its low overhead, which makes it uniquely suited for monitoring applications already in production.

"Before AVIcode Intercept Studio, it was challenging to quickly and accurately diagnose the root cause of an application problem when our customers experienced slowed connection speeds," said Mike Jensen, vice president of technical and support services at Daptiv. "Intercept Studio completely streamlines our troubleshooting procedures, and provides the development team with precisely the information required to get to the bottom of application problems quickly. The solution has proved invaluable."

Intercept Studio is a complete application monitoring solution built on proprietary technology that is designed to accelerate application issue identification and resolution, whether the application is in development, quality assurance or production -- resulting in significant time and cost savings throughout the application lifecycle. Intercept Studio leverages intelligent agents that unobtrusively monitor .NET applications on any server and report in real-time any application code failure, security issue, connectivity issue or performance degradation.

"The downtime associated with application errors can be costly -- in fact, analysts estimate that up to 66 percent of development resources are spent on managing and supporting applications," said Mike Curreri, CEO at AVIcode. "Intercept Studio delivers proactive notification and definitive diagnosis of problems, enabling Daptiv support and operations personnel to conduct fast triage, and Daptiv developers to quickly determine the root cause of a problem and correct it. Daptiv is the only on-demand vendor positioned in the leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management applications, and it is clear they are committed to delivering the most reliable applications and best end-user experience possible. We are pleased with the positive feedback we've received from their team about the direct benefits they have gained from the Intercept Studio implementation."
