Monitor Desktop Apps

Get greater visibility across all types of desktop apps

If you’re like most businesses, you juggle a variety of apps–cloud and legacy–but struggle to achieve visibility across all. Not all applications are built the same and many legacy applications don’t have modern APIs or connections. Because of this, you often do not have visibility into legacy apps. Apica Desktop Application Check (DAC) offers critical performance monitoring across Windows desktops, terminal applications and legacy systems, eliminating all monitoring black holes.

With Apica’s Desktop Application check (DAC), you get advanced scripting capabilities that gives greater visibility to the performance of your legacy apps. Results are stored and presented with timing per step and total in the ASM portal. The DAC check provides screenshots to help troubleshoot any possible issues.
