Year Marked By Customer Growth, Product Innovations, and Industry Recognition
Research Triangle Park, NC – January 27, 2014 BlueStripe Software announced that 2013 was a year of continued record customer growth, product innovation, and industry success for the Transaction and Application Management company. 2013 saw continued record growth for BlueStripe. The company expanded its customer base by 24.4% and increased sales to existing customers by 116.2%, resulting in year over year core revenue growth of 83.4%. New customers spanned across sizes and industries, including multiple new organizations in telecommunications, software, utilities, insurance, government, and banking.
BlueStripe continued to demonstrate industry leadership throughout the year, introducing the first methodology for companies to take a Service Oriented Approach to IT Operations. Based on its continued customer success, innovative product enhancements, and a sound vision for the future of IT Operations, BlueStripe was awarded its second consecutive Gold Medal for “Best Transaction Management Solution” at the Network Product Guide Golden Bridge Awards.
In 2013, BlueStripe released a new entry level product line, FactFinder Express, while greatly expanding the capabilities of its flagship FactFinder™ Enterprise transaction monitoring solution. FactFinder Enterprise updates included extensive integration work with Microsoft System Center and Microsoft Azure, as well as several new product enhancements including automatic application protocol detection, role-based component views for Operations Manager distributed application maps, and extensive improvements to product usability and extensibility with other platforms.
FactFinder Express is BlueStripe’s first solution available for free download and trial. Perfect for individual System owners, FactFinder Express provides transaction and application context for any individual server, and can easily convert to FactFinder Enterprise when needed.
BlueStripe continued to build on its long-standing membership in Microsoft’s System Center Alliance, adding capabilities to provide dynamic distributed application views and response-time alerts into System Center, while extending the application mapping and monitoring to manage datacenter, cloud, and hybrid-cloud based applications.
“Our successful 2013 is further proof that organizations of all sizes rely on distributed applications for business success, and that understanding how their applications connect with their infrastructure is critical to that requirement,” said Chris Neal, co-founder and CEO of BlueStripe Software. “With our new product capabilities, deeper System Center and Azure integration, and continued high pace of adoption by record numbers of new and existing customers, we look forward to even faster growth in 2014.”
FactFinder automatically discovers, maps, and monitors all business transactions running within the data center and across the Cloud. FactFinder measures performance, hop-by-hop, everywhere that transactions go, across tiers, across platforms, and across architectures – even into virtual machines, public, private, and hybrid cloud, as well as third party services. When performance or availability problems occur, FactFinder follows the slow or hung transaction right to the problem component, and then drills down the server stack to determine why the problem occurred.
