"An analytics tool for monitoring portal, Web application and enterprise mashups usage and event activity can help organizations maximize the return on investment," said Mark Carges, executive vice president at BEA Systems. "Successful Web application and portal deployments have as much to do with human behavior and business processes as with the technology. In the past, managers of Web application and enterprise portal deployments have lacked easy to use enterprise-class tools that help them determine how people are actually using applications effectively. Using BEA AquaLogic(R) Analytics 2.1, our customers can determine how effectively people are using content, applications and information to collaborate and complete business tasks together using their available Web applications, portals and enterprise mashups. "

Making Metrics Real-Time

BEA AquaLogic(R) Analytics 2.1 is designed to give real-time metrics on user interests and activity, helping organizations to effectively measure and manage portal, Web application and enterprise mash-up deployments. It captures information directly from BEA AquaLogic(R) Ensemble, AquaLogic(R) Interaction and WebLogic Portal(R) with real-time event and request monitoring. Additionally, BEA AquaLogic(R) Analytics 2.1 does not require any changes to existing application or portal deployments, but is designed so that after a simple installation and configuration BEA AquaLogic(R) Analytics 2.1 immediately begins collecting events from BEA AquaLogic(R) Ensemble, BEA AquaLogic(R) Interaction or BEA WebLogic Portal(R). As a result, users will gain access to a deeper, more accurate and immediate information about system activity than can be provided by Web-analytics software tools, helping enable:

— Improved visibility for development and deployment planning, resulting in lower overall TCO; — An understanding of user interests, leading to stronger customer and partner relationships; — Knowing and meeting user information needs which increase ROI; — Valuable metrics help to prioritize administrative resources and infrastructure investments; — Measurable impact of new development efforts.

BEA AquaLogic(R) Analytics 2.1 is available on the Microsoft Windows, SUN Solaris, and Linux operating systems and supports Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle databases. Data and events captured by BEA AquaLogic(R) Analytics 2.1 can also be queried by external tools such as Crystal Reports, Microsoft Excel and other business intelligence tools.
