May 15, 2012 - PRLog -- DETROIT--May 15, 2012--Compuware Corporation , the technology performance company, today announced a major new release of its integrated application performance management (APM) solution, the Compuware APM platform®. The Compuware APM Spring 2012 Platform Release introduces a new generation of APM with four industry-first innovations across its dynaTrace and Gomez product brands that help customers optimize the performance and value of their business-critical applications.

This new release represents the next phase in Compuware’s unified APM strategy. It is the first release of the new Compuware APM® brand with Gomez and dynaTrace as major sub brands within it.

“Application performance management is becoming a top priority for more and more IT organizations as applications become more distributed, mobile and dynamic. More than ever, IT leaders are challenged to maintain end user service levels and to proactively detect and remediate problems before they impact the business,” said Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President, Enterprise System Management Software, at IDC. “Compuware’s announced product release in the areas of mobile, cloud, big data and streaming APM address top priority pain points facing many IT teams today.”

Mobile computing, the cloud and streaming are all rapidly growing areas, adding to the complexity and challenge of maintaining application performance to grow revenue, protect brand reputation and decrease costs. Managing this challenge requires visibility and deep-dive analytics across the entire application delivery chain to rapidly find and fix problems that may occur in the data center, cloud or the end user’s device. At the same time, organizations are challenged to deliver applications with more features, in shorter cycles and with fewer resources than ever before.

Compuware’s Spring 2012 Release tackles these challenges with a new generation of APM innovations that address:

Complexity at the Edge

Compuware User Experience Management (UEM) simplifies performance management at the edge of the internet, enabling customers to optimize end-user experience and decrease abandonment through:

• Comprehensive UEM and performance analytics for mobile applications and browser applications.
• Deep transaction visibility with embedded PurePath® technology for unrivaled insight into application execution at the edge for all browsers and device types, including code-level details, incidents and visit histories.
• Visibility into all aspects of mobile application performance including user actions in the mobile application.
• The most comprehensive and actionable synthetic streaming media capabilities.
• Flexible UEM deployment options customers can choose either SaaS or on-premises enterprise.

Converged Network and Application Performance

Compuware APM combines best-in-class application and network performance management to tackle the increasing challenges of complex data centers, resulting in reduced mean-time-to-resolve (MTTR), slashed performance management costs and simplified deployments.

• Out-of-the-box dashboards provide a single view of application and network performance.
• Single point of instrumentation delivers network diagnostics in context of application performance.
• Integrated synthetic monitoring enables proactive monitoring for web and non-web applications.
• Auto-correlated code-level analysis provides drill-down to application root cause in seconds via fully integrated dynaTrace PurePath analysis.
• New pricing and entry-level offerings enable single application and project-based deployments, with seamless extensibility into a comprehensive APM solution.

Enterprise APM for Cloud and Big Data Applications

Compuware dynaTrace® Enterprise delivers the industry’s first solution to simplify performance optimization, operation and management of modern, dynamic applications.

• The industry’s first deep transaction management solution for dynamic cloud and big data applications.
• Unprecedented visibility into both Cassandra NoSQL and Hadoop Map/Reduce Big Data environments.
• Auto-discovery, auto-adaptive PurePath instrumentation enabling the deepest cloud application visibility even for multi-cloud (i.e. vCloud + EC2 and/or Azure) and hybrid cloud environments.

Enhanced Architecture and Packaging for Faster Time-to-Value and Extreme Scalability

Major architectural enhancements significantly reduce time-to-value and support new pricing that allows IT teams to easily start with a single application and cost-effectively scale to enterprise-wide deployments.

• Faster time-to-value with out-of-the-box zero configuration dashboards and smarter baselining based on behavioral analytics.
• New pricing and entry-level offerings enable single application and project-based deployments, with seamless extensibility into a comprehensive APM solution.

Detroit-based Marketing Associates, a leading technology-enabled marketing services firm, manages thousands of client applications—enterprise and web applications—per year for global Fortune 100 companies across multiple industries and uses the Compuware APM platform to monitor application performance.

“My IT team is really excited about this new release. The ability to really drill down and get to the root cause of a problem in a single dashboard view is outstanding and will save us hours—if not days—of troubleshooting,” said Andrew Frey, Chief Technology Officer at Marketing Associates. “Having a unified view into the performance of all of our internal and client applications provides ‘one stop-shopping’ to finding and solving performance problems faster. Also, the flexibility to create customized dashboards for specific roles and purposes gives our customers transparency into the performance of their applications as well as ensures that we are meeting SLAs.”

“The application landscape is changing rapidly with new native mobile applications, an exploding number of cloud services, elastic cloud infrastructures and a growing business drive to bring more application functionality to market faster.  A new generation application management system that goes well beyond traditional data center monitoring is required,” said John Van Siclen, General Manager of Compuware’s APM business unit. “This release addresses these new requirements while at the same time simplifying and automating away the APM complexity of the past. The Compuware APM platform is easily integrated into any existing IT environment with significant value received in literally minutes. Because of its modular design with SaaS and enterprise options, this new platform fits a very wide market from the largest enterprise to SMB/SME customers who--until now--considered APM systems such as this simply out of their reach.”

Compuware APM® is the industry’s leading solution for optimizing the performance of web, non-web, mobile, streaming and cloud applications. Driven by end-user experience, Compuware APM provides the market’s only unified APM coverage across the entire application delivery chain—from the edge of the internet through the cloud to the datacenter. Compuware APM helps customers deliver proactive problem resolution for greater customer satisfaction, accelerate time-to-market for new application functionality and reduce application management costs through smarter analytics and advanced APM automation.

With more than 4,000 APM customers worldwide, Compuware is recognized as a leader in the “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring” report.
