Monitor every aspect of your operating environment during a migration or disaster recovery event.

A migration or a disaster recovery event introduces a unique set of needs for an organization.  Both require a complete understanding of your operating environment — its assets, software and dependencies.

David-Kenneth Group developed a tool called the Examiner that offers a comprehensive suite of capabilities. It is an integrated solution with data gathering, sharing, and monitoring capabilities during a migration or disaster recovery incident.

The Examiner At-A-Glance

  • Agentless auto-discovery of assets, software, and dependencies
  • Single repository of truth that houses technical, business, and migration planning data
  • Runbook and migration dashboards that visualize cutover events in real time

A 360° View of your Environment

Use the Examiner to explore your systems from an application or server viewpoint to better understand the undocumented dependencies. It can also update your CMDB and continuously monitor your environment for changes. Examiner offers access, insight, and control over your data and your environment.

An Up-To-The-Minute Mobile Dashboard

Examiner’s mobile dashboard tracks the real-time system status of events during a migration or disaster recovery incident. It provides summary views at a glance and access to more detailed views of data by milestone, server, application, issue, individual task assignments, and various other cuts of data germane to stakeholder needs. The examiner also functions as a centralized runbook providing minute-by-minute times, tasks, and assignees to keep the team on task.

Real-Time Disaster Recovery Management 

Be in control of a disaster recovery exercise or event with real-time recovery insights on desktop, mobile, or NOC.  The Examiner interprets run books, manages the inter-dependencies, and reports on real-time recovery progress and statistics. It improves communication and an organization’s grip on recovery management for subject matter experts, IT services, business processes, applications, platforms, databases, middleware, and other IT landscape components.
