After several million dollars of investment and four years of research and deployment collecting expertise from hundreds of monitoring projects in thirty-eight countries, Tango/04 is proud to announce Version 8 of its flagship monitoring solution.


“Companies everywhere need to protect their revenue from competitors, and providing proper Quality of Service is key,” says Raul Cristian Aguirre, Tango/04 CEO. “We are proud to lead the transition from technical oriented, less valuable monitoring projects into business-aligned, fully customer-oriented ones.”


Tango/04 pioneered the Agile Service Management concepts in 2007 to allow companies to deploy certain ITIL processes in a rapid and agile manner. This version simplifies Event Management and Continual Service Improvement, helps to improve user experience, and proactively detects any degradation or suspicious activity at the business level.


It also introduces ThunderCloud, a scalable Business Service Management (BSM) back-end that allows rapid and universal access to monitored information; builds upon its Holistic Monitoring concept by improving the ability to show key indicators through attractive, real-time dashboards; and adds a completely new Web Client, plus dozens of new features across the board.

It is also faster and sports an improved Real-Time Service Model (RTSM), a concept that Tango/04 also pioneered, devoted to rapidly modeling service dependencies and relationships for accurate root cause detection and business impact analysis.


Tango/04 software is in use in several of the twenty largest banks in the world and has a strong foothold on the insurance business as well. Typical uses of Tango/04 products include BSM, SLM, Security Event Management/Regulatory Compliance, Business Process Monitoring, Data Consolidation Monitoring, Branches Management and Infrastructure Monitoring.
