IBM Partners: Top Picks of Disruptive Offerings at Think 2018

By Jennifer Mavashev

In a recent Forbes article, leading industry analyst and Forbes contributor Jason Bloomberg lists his top picks from Think 2018 of disruptive capabilities and offerings complementary to IBM’s focus on cloud and data, artificial intelligence (AI),  blockchain and security.

Among the vendors listed from Think 2018, he included Nastel’s comprehensive monitoring capabilities across hybrid environments.

Most monitoring tools focus on particular parts of the enterprise deployment environment: some on applications, others on the network, etc.

Nastel is able to monitor the entire hybrid environment, including legacy assets and middleware as well as the components of more modern, cloud-based workloads.

Nastel is also particularly adept at monitoring transactions within IBM-centric environments, which may include legacy IBM products like IBM MQ (formerly MQSeries), WebSphere Application Server, and DataPower XML appliances.
