Alerts and aren't new to monitoring applications but Visual KPI takes them further. Alerts are role-based and Alert Templates (see video) allow you to apply custom alert scenarios and escalating alerts to hundreds of KPIs in just minutes.
Alerts with Context
Visual KPI alerts go way beyond just telling you "something" went wrong. They include all of the contextual data you need to see what has happened and most importantly each one contains a link to the real-time trend showing you where the alert took place and letting you immediately know if the problem was temporary or getting worse.
You can even customize the amount and types of information available in each alert.
Made for Mobile
They are pre-formatted for mobile email clients (desktop ones too!) so you get the right information in the right order to make decisions quickly. And right at the top is the link to the detailed situation. Quick, simple and useful.
Our mobile BI alerts are configured in the Visual KPI Designer and go beyond just specifying someone's email address. Alert templates allow you to create unlimited alarm scenarios (escalations, time in state, transients, reminder alerts, and more) and apply them to multiple KPIs with ease. They also take advantage of your existing directory structure (like Active Directory) so you can alert users, groups, departments or even whoever is in charge at the moment (including equations and references from data sources).
Always up to Date
What if you don't see the alert right away? Most applications will only show you what happened at that time, but Visual KPI shows you when the alert happened and exactly what has happened since. Did it get worse? Was it temporary? You'll always know with Visual KPI.
