DB2 SPI to monitor your IBM DB2 environment

Has your organization made the investment into HP Operations Manager?
Are you working with DB2 servers?
Are looking for a solution to monitor your DB2 environment?

If you answered yes to all 3 questions, then we have the perfect solution for you. The NiCE DB2 SPI.

We at NiCE, understand that more and more organizations are moving their IT function into the cloud and adopting virtualization strategies in order to:

  • Use IT resources more efficiently
  • Reduce costs
  • Save time

Migrating into the cloud, however, is not without its challenges because it requires a complete change in the way that IT resources are utilized. The HP Operations Manager console is the necessary system to manage both the physical and virtual (cloud) environment. There is however, a missing puzzle piece to complete the single interface view of HP Operations Manager.

SPIs are the missing puzzle piece that extends the functionality of HP Operations Manager agents. With SPIs, it becomes possible to monitor your databases, applications, and middleware with pinpoint accuracy. This in itself, will make your IT administrator much more efficient and increase productivity.

The NiCE DB2 SPI, like our other SPI products, was designed to increase the productivity of both the HP Operations Manager administrator and operator, providing them the ability to identify problems quickly and take corrective action to avoid costly interruptions in service. Whether you have a large or a small environment to monitor, the NiCE DB2 SPI is a fully scalable solution to meet your application monitoring needs.
