This is the title of a session being presented at Exchange Online 2010 by Gary Cink on September 15th at 9:45 am. In this presentation, Gary will demonstrate how some of the complimentary Progress' products enhance the OpenEdge experience for business transaction management (BTM). BTM is a critical component in the new IT/Business relationship. Progress® Actional®, Progress's first class BTM product, translates data relating to an underlying IT estate into information that is relevant to various business stakeholders including operations staff, application development, quality assurance, and security & compliance personnel. With this knowledge the various stakeholders can make informed decisions, often proactively, to ensure the success of every critical business transaction necessary for the day-to-day running of a business. Actional also offers the capabilities of automating operational Service Level Agreements (SLA) against this estate, thus preventing issues or alerting appropriate staff to problems before they have even happened.

Service-level agreements (SLAs) are crucial any time a business service provider (BSP) provides an application or service to a client via the cloud. In the results of this survey, 76% of respondents report that SLAs are critical to winning new business. Yet, 84% are unable always to meet their SLAs.
