Springer Selects Compuware APM To Optimize Online Library Applications

Leading Global Scientific Publisher to Use Compuware dynaTrace for Advanced Performance Insight Capabilities

DETROIT, March 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company delivering a new generation of APM, today announced that Springer, a global scientific publisher, has selected Compuware APM -- dynaTrace -- as its application performance management (APM) solution. With Compuware dynaTrace, Springer will be able to engineer performance early in new services development and quickly pinpoint the source of performance bottlenecks in its highly advanced online library applications. Using Compuware dynaTrace, Springer expects to significantly improve the responsiveness of its subscription portal and optimise the experience for end-users.

Springer identified the need for a new generation APM solution when it began to migrate from its older third-party platform to a new system. The online portal, now built in-house, is designed to provide end-users with easier and faster access to publications. Focused on bringing new features and functionality to the market as quickly as possible while delivering the very best user experience, Springer chose to develop the new application in Scala. With this approach, application coding is up to three times shorter than traditional programming languages. After thoroughly researching the market, Springer concluded that only Compuware APM was able to support their IT and business objectives, delivering the required level of visibility into their systems.

"At a critical point in the development of our new SpringerLink platform, which is a modern Scala-based application environment backed by a MarkLogic ® Enterprise NoSQL store, Springer had an urgent need to identify the bottlenecks in its systems," said Ross Heritage, chief architect at Springer. "Compuware was able to quickly conduct a proof of concept (POC) that showed that the dynaTrace product would allow our software developers to identify the slowest components in our platform, giving details down to a code level. dynaTrace allows our software developers to target and address these problem areas, thereby helping researchers in ever greater numbers all over the world to access vital information on SpringerLink much more quickly."

The new system is also leveraging a big data application architecture relying on a NoSQL platform. While creating business advantage, both technology choices increased application complexity and obfuscated visibility into application performance. As a result, Springer needed a new approach to enable it to fine-tune its subscription portal during development and optimise its long-term performance.
