WebSphere Business Monitor will help you establish and track common business monitoring goals:
Business performance measured against targets - a scorecard view

Alert notifications from anomalous situations
Tracking of business process flows
Monitoring of business process metrics like working and elapsed duration
WebSphere Business Monitor also provides support for the Common Event Infrastructure by leveraging the Common Base Event (CBE) format for receiving and emitting events, as implemented through the WebSphere Process Server.

Close monitoring of key business performance metrics can drive continuous improvement and empower innovation and optimization. Business process goals are monitored for progress against these goals. WebSphere Business Monitor includes one copy of WebSphere Business Modeler Advanced providing sophisticated, intuitive modeling and simulation capabilities to precisely model the critical aspects of your business. When the WebSphere Business Monitor is used in conjunction with WebSphere Business Modeler, you can create a business measures model that specifically identifies activities to be monitored, including events, business metrics, and key performance indicators.

Once the model is complete, WebSphere Business Monitor then recognizes the model and the measurements to be captured from incoming events. Model, deploy, monitor, analyze, and take action to make informed and timely decisions, resulting in real-time competitive advantage.
