As of July 15th, 2019, we have introduced a new Unit based licensing structure for Operations Bridge.  This same Unit base structure also now applies to our Application Performance Management (APM) products including:

  • SiteScope (SiS)
  • Business Process Monitoring (BPM)
  • Real User Monitoring (RUM)
  • Diagnostics 

The reason we’ve put this Unit based structure into place is to extend more business value to our customers.  

Under this new license structure, you can enhance the value of your existing investments with access to:

•    Extended capabilities for infrastructure monitoring
•    End user experience monitoring
•    Our new fully containerized common data store platform - Collect Once Store Once (COSO) 
•    Enhance reporting and analytics functions via COSO
•    Business Value Dashboards

We know that you probably have some questions, and we are certainly available to help answer those. Please contact your Micro Focus Account Representative or Micro Focus Business Partner for more information. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
