AppFirst has launched an enterprise version of its development platform with the option to run on-premise, in the cloud or in hybrid scenarios. The company also has announced a partnership with Accretive to offer a predictive analytics offering to help enterprises expose, anticipate and intervene in IT risks across organizational silos.

AppFirst’s Application Operations Intelligence platform provides businesses with a universal timeline of application data and insights in the context of their supporting infrastructure. AppFirst enables organizations to proactively troubleshoot, increase system performance and asset utilization, enable highly accurate chargeback capabilities, and reduce overall IT costs.

AppFirst’s enterprise platform establishes a complete and universal timeline of events across an enterprise application environment at a sub-millisecond level. This includes application calls, system events, log file entries, configuration change, third party application or custom code events, and data from thousands of plug-ins. This is accomplished through a patented data collection and aggregation methodology that provides a universal timeline that can live in the cloud, on-premise or in a hybrid environment. 

New features of the AppFirst platform include:

Real-time service topology mapping: This provides the ability to auto-discover and map their service and application topologies in real-time. AppFirst auto-installs under new custom or third-party application components as they come into an environment. This means that companies will always have an up-to-date view of what is running and how it is running across the enterprise.

Predictive analytics: Using predictive analytic models updated in real-time allows for the ability to identify system limits, predict issues across the enterprise, and perform what-if analysis on how changing complexity will impact performance quality and cost.

On-premise deployments: In addition to the core SaaS & Private SaaS offering, users can deploy AppFirst behind their firewall. This is critical for enterprise customers in highly regulated environments and in countries where data needs to securely reside within their borders.
Starting with Accretive, AppFirst will be announcing a series of enterprise focused applications leveraging this platform, consisting of those developed by AppFirst, various partners and the enterprise community.
