Modern IT: Changing Technologies
and Operating Models

The last few years have forced dramatic changes in the IT landscape. Digitization of customer, supply-chain interactions and internal operations has accelerated by three to four years. The share of digital products in a company’s portfolio has accelerated by seven years.

What this has meant is that organizations across verticals and sizes are relying on IT even more than before. Modern IT infrastructures are being designed to support hybrid workstyles, adopting digital workspaces on-prem and in the cloud. Unified communication technologies like Microsoft Teams and Zoom are commonplace today. Migration to the cloud is happening at a fast pace and applications are being designed using container technologies.

At the same time, IT operations technologies, processes and models are also changing. Reliance on a few experts is a thing of the past. Organizations are seeking tools and processes that make IT management repeatable and predictable. There is increased emphasis on making technologies accessible from anywhere, looking at automation of routine tasks, and a focus on monitoring security and cost control, especially as the adoption of cloud services grows.

Observability for Modern IT

Modern IT necessitates specialized ways for monitoring these new technologies. After all, failures in a digital workspace or a unified communications environment may happen in different ways than in a traditional IT infrastructure.

At the same time, monitoring tools have to be augmented with AIOps technologies for detecting anomalies, discovering inter-dependencies, identifying the root-cause of problems, etc. This is where observability comes in. Observability tools benefit different stakeholders in an organization and provide insights specific to each stakeholder’s needs.

eG Enterprise v7.2 incorporates new monitoring, AIOps, automation and cost analysis features that make it a complete observability solution for modern IT. Enhancements in this version cover all four core areas of focus for eG Enterprise: digital workspaces, application performance, monitoring of enterprise applications and unified, end-to-end monitoring. Built-in monitoring for over 600 different application and infrastructure components, 60,000 unique health checks and over 50,000 unique metrics make eG Enterprise one of the most comprehensive solutions in the industry. With eG Enterprise, organizations can embrace secure, modern, and efficient best practices and implement them through their digital transformation journey.

New Features in
eG Enterprise v7.2

Enhanced Multi-Vendor Digital Workspace Monitoring

eG Enterprise now provides the most comprehensive range of monitoring, diagnosis and reporting capabilities for any digital workspace. Whether you are using one or more of Citrix, VMware Horizon, AWS AppStream 2.0, AWS WorkSpaces, Microsoft RDS, or Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktops, we have you covered! Get a consistent set of dashboards and reports across these diverse technologies. Key enhancements in this release include:

  • Comprehensive monitoring, diagnosis and reporting for Microsoft AVD and supporting components including AVD Host Pools, Session Hosts, AVD Broker, Azure AD, Azure AD Connect, and more.
  • Full support for monitoring Windows 365 Cloud PCs.
  • Full support for Amazon WorkSpaces and the WSP protocol.
  • Full support for Amazon AppStream 2.0 and the NICE DCV protocol.
  • VMware Horizon 8.5 is now supported. Additional monitoring for VMware Horizon Pods and clusters has been added. Reports and dashboards improved to match what is available for Citrix.
  • Support for Linux Citrix VDAs has been enhanced. The Citrix logon simulator now seamlessly integrates with TOTP authentication.
  • Monitoring of Linux-based IGEL terminals is now integrated into eG Enterprise. IGEL terminals whether at home or in a corporate environment can be monitored.
  • eG light agents can now be installed on user desktops and be used for monitoring desktop performance as well as user’s connectivity to Wi-Fi, local network, Internet, etc.
  • GPU monitoring support extended to AMD and Intel technologies in cloud and on-prem. NVIDIA GPU support extended to Linux to support VFX and Design customers.

I'm impressed with what eG Enterprise has to offer in end-to-end monitoring for Azure Virtual Desktop. The auto discovery capabilities, including out of the box thresholds, allow for easy and fast configuration. Getting detailed insights in logon duration, application launch times and the perceived end user experience is great. The ability to gather load simulation tests details using a synthetic user is super helpful and the way they are displayed in the console is great.

Application Performance Monitoring Made More Effective

Improvements in eG Enterprise v7.2 are aimed at making APM easier to deploy, to offer deeper/better insights into application performance and to support a wider range of technologies.

  • The eG Enterprise web application simulator has been made simpler to use. Greater flexibility has been provided during recording. The web app simulator now supports TOTP-based two factor authentication, dynamic Captcha and also handles untrusted SSL certificates.
  • Real user monitoring (RUM) enhancements include support for the latest browser versions, broader support for single page application frameworks, and key user-centric metrics including first paint time and first contentful paint time.
  • JVM monitoring has been extended to JRE 19 and web container monitoring has been enhanced for JBoss and WebSphere application servers.
  • Auto-discovery capabilities have been added to the Java transaction profiler to automate deployment and management of Java applications.
  • Java transaction monitoring improvements including masking values of values in cookies and headers for security, support for Java Servlets 5.x and support for most popular Java messaging service providers.
  • PHP transaction tracing is now supported for PHP 8.0 and also 8.1. Support for tracing Memcache, PHP SOAPClient and NuSOAP has been added.
  • New capabilities for .NET application monitoring include the ability to trace applications that use TIBCO, Nlog library, and PostgreSQL. Deeper visibility into stored procedures accessed, along with parameters and values are reported. Support for tracing applications based on .NET Core has also been added.
  • New capabilities for .NET application monitoring include the ability to trace applications that use TIBCO, Nlog library, and
  • PostgreSQL. Deeper visibility into stored procedures accessed, along with parameters and values are reported. Support for tracing applications based on .NET Core has also been added.
  • APM capabilities are now available for Node.js applications. Monitoring of the V8 engine and application tracing are supported.
