VistaFoundation® Solution Development

VistaFoundation (VF) is the adaptive technology platform from Infovista® for service-centric IT performance reporting. This course teaches experienced VF users how to create a custom solution. Starting with an empty configuration, students will gradually build up a total solution for VF reporting on network servers and LAN interfaces.

Students will create an Infovista library that defines the KPIs and instant report templates, a VistaMart® library that defines the reporting rules and, finally, a set of Portal pages with custom report templates to display the data. At each stage of the course, hands-on lab work will reinforce the students’ knowledge.

While the course concentrates on the development of a total solution, students will also be able to use this knowledge to customize existing VF deployments.

Student Profile

This course is designed for technical audiences. Developers will need this course to be able to create and customize VistaFoundation solutions. System architects will find this course useful to understand the possibilities of the system.
