Recently, I was evaluating Application Monitoring vendors. Assuming, the majority of the applications are Portal based. Looking at the vendor landscape, I looked up the following vendors
* IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager (ITCAM)
* Wily Portal Manager
* Identify's AppSight
I scored the vendors based on the feature set provided, integration with best of breed tools in respective categories, spectrum of applications (software and hardware) that can be monitored, reporting facilities, dashboard's and portal monitoring and integration.
I had thought, tools from IBM will score high, but I was surprised when Wily Portal Manager along with Intrascope Powerpacks and Extensions came neck to neck with IBM and Tivoli tools and even managed to beat in some of the categories.
