This dependency makes it a critical application that requires consistent optimal performance to effectively maintain user productivity.

With increasingly complex systems sustaining mission-critical services, IT departments are hard at work designing business continuity strategies to avoid unpleasant surprises. Each year companies lose $26.5 billion in revenue due to IT downtime - either planned or unplanned. When there are critical application failures on the network the costs can hit a staggering 1 million dollars per hour lost in Fortune 100 companies.

Martello Technologies is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada with staff in Canada, Europe and the United States. We provide digital experience monitoring (DEM) solutions that monitor the performance of cloud collaboration and productivity tools to give enterprises insight into the user experience. Our products include unified communications (UC) performance analytics software, Microsoft 365 user experience monitoring software and IT analytics software.

Traditional network and application performance monitoring approaches lack insight into the user experience of cloud services. Martello’s digital experience monitoring (DEM) solutions provide deeper insight by correlating data on network and application performance with insight into the user’s experience of the service. While other DEM solutions can make this connection between performance and user experience, Martello takes this a step further, demonstrating to enterprises why the problem happened.
