    2. 2. Has this Happened to You?<br />“Why is my email not coming through!!!<br />I need to hire a Blackberry Czar to fix this thing.”<br />
    3. 3. The Problem:Isolated Silos and Event Mgmt<br />Console 1<br />Console 2<br />Management of Blackberry Enterprise Servers<br />Management of everything else (AD, Exchange, SQL Server, etc)<br />There may be a server problem, BUT...<br />The BlackBerry management silo can’t see that<br />So you have two teams working on the problem<br /> Duplication of effort and more cost in IT Operations than there should be<br />Mobile Outage, but why? No visibility to AD issue.<br />Active Directory Issue<br />BES Application Events<br />Server, Network, Storage Events<br />
    4. 4. The Problem:Isolated Silos and Performance<br />Console 1<br />Console 2<br />The result:<br /><ul><li>Blackberry service depends on more than just a high performing Blackberry Enterprise Server

    22. 22. BlackBerry SPI:Service Discovery<br />View of discovered BES Services in HP Operations Manager for Windows<br />
    23. 23. BlackBerry SPI: Average Delivery Time Exceeded (Policy)<br />BESPI-00105.1<br />The time taken to deliver an email or calendar message to a BlackBerry device<br />The average delivery time is the difference between the time when a transaction is sent to the device and the time when the device returns an acknowledgement<br />In this example the user “Director” is not getting good service<br />
    24. 24. BlackBerry SPI: Hung Treads on Messaging Agent (Policy)<br />BESPI-00115.1<br />The number of user threads that are detected to be hung<br />In this example there are 30 hung threads. Hung threads can affect mail/calendar delivery performance<br />
