Exoprise recently updated the CloudReady SharePoint sensor for monitoring SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2019 Server. At the same time we separated the CloudReady OneDrive sensor to better segregate the crowd. This was a feature request that customers had been asking for. For both sensors, we upgraded the browser, improved the bandwidth (throughput) tests and a number of other enhancements. Read on for more information about new features and enhancements.
Selenium is a great open source project that can be useful for monitoring simple multi-page apps, but using Selenium for testing or monitoring SaaS services can be a challenge. Occasionally, our sales and engineering teams talk to prospects who say, “We have other fellas who write Selenium scripts, I’m just going to ask them to write tests for SharePoint Online, Microsoft Teams or Exchange Online”. We get it: you’re trying to save your company money.
For those of us already using Microsoft Teams, the benefits couldn’t be clearer: Microsoft Teams provides everyone with one place to chat, meet, call, and collaborate, no matter where you are. IT professionals who support modern workplace tools like Office 365, and remote meeting platforms like Zoom and WebEx, can greatly benefit from connecting critical applications like Exoprise, directly into the Teams Channels they are already using.
Confronted with the global Coronavirus pandemic, IT and Network administrators now face the prospect of having large numbers of employees suddenly working from home. This change will likely require accelerated testing of network performance and digital experiences to ensure business-critical services operate smoothly.
For the past 15 years, there’s been a shift in how people work, where they work from and how they connect to “work”. Employees are no longer tethered to headquarters, their offices or tied to slower complicated VPN services. Additionally, the way people work and where they work from has changed. Along with flexible work hours, employees want workplace flexibility. And with such a competitive job market, employers have to deliver!
Office 365 Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM) should be critical to every enterprise. Why? It’s pretty clear that Microsoft Office 365 is winning it all when it comes to collaboration suites with more innovation, polish and features than other platforms.
Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM) is a growing practice within IT organizations that provides insight into the factors that make up the overall application User Experience (UX). As systems become more complex, as cloud adoption continues to grow, and IT loses direct control of infrastructure, it becomes both more difficult and more important to capture the overall end-user experience.
