"There is tremendous demand for increased visibility into user and business activity to drive better decisions, improve efficiency, and create competitive advantage, stated Tom Lubinski, President and CEO of SL. "By integrating Inflight events into RTView, I believe we're enabling the next generation of business activity monitoring.

The combined solution provides numerous benefits to all types of businesses, including:

  • Transparency - Out-of-path operation means production applications are never impacted and never need changing.

  • Flexibility - Business events to monitor, data to be captured, and output formats are all completely customizable to support the exact real-time intelligence requirements of the organization.

  • Versatility - The solution supports standards-based and legacy input and output adapters, meeting all current and future data acquisition requirements and complementing any real-time Business Intelligence solution.

"Our partnership with SL is significant as it provides customers with an easy-to-comprehend, visual view of their users' transactions, stated Paul Bilden, VP of Business Development and Sales for Covelight Systems.
