metric² provides end user and admin tools which visualize, display and share your enterprise data through real-time web and mobile based applications. Providing employees the ability to view all their data in one place, and make informed decisions using relevant, on-hand, and up to date information. Our applications are perfect for start-ups, enterprises, departments and developers wanting to get the most out of their SAP technologies.
Why realtime? The intent is to be proactive about your systems or applications health, having the Metric² dashboards up on a large format monitor ensures that everyone is well aware of how your system is performing, and more importantly, when it is not.
Why is metric² Web Based? While I personally prefer Native/Traditional/Window types apps, having metric² run as a web app (using SAPUI5) means it can be used and displayed on a variety of devices and formats.
Why do you call it a platform? Its more than just a bunch of metrics, everything is customizable, you can create your own metrics, your own dashboards and alerts, it also acts as a large data warehouse for any of the data you are monitoring/tracking, taking it past being an app, to a small platform which you can build, and extend upon.
metric² is made up of 3 key areas:
Dashboards: metric² can have multiple dashboards. Dashboards are designed as blank canvases, are quite flexible, and can contain metrics.
Metrics: Each dashboard can have multiple metrics displayed at any given time. There are a variety of metrics including a range of predefined datasources (CPU, Memory, Disk etc.) but also include custom metrics (SQL, JSON, Yahoo) which can display a myriad of information to your team. Metrics can be dragged and dropped into their needed locations and also sized accordingly.
Alerts: Certain metrics can have alerts “attached” to them, when a predefined value meets the critera, the alert is logged and displayed.
