"Prior to the implementation of your software, I had to constantly pull one or more software developers off of projects with high ROI to pinpoint issues related to slowing performance on production programs.
In the 9 months since I implemented OpManager, this has been reduced drastically. We can now monitor and record true performance benchmarks on our production servers, over multiple time frames. This benchmarking has allowed us to set notices for unusual performance and pinpoint when the deviation began. This allows us lead time to address performance issues before the customer ever notices them.
" I have reduced 15% waste of development time by 90%. Now less than 2% of my developer time is lost to emergency repair of performance issues. "
