Compuware APM For Mainframe Enhanced With Greater Functionality - More Customers To See Mainframe Savings

Stocks in this article: CPWR

DETROIT, June 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced notable new enhancements to Compuware APM for Mainframe, the industry's leading 24/7 end-to-end transaction management solution spanning the edge of the Internet, through distributed systems and into mainframe environments. Compuware APM for Mainframe has extended its support for CICS to include CICS Transaction Gateway (CTG) and CICS Web Services (SOAP). These enhancements enable customers who use these technologies to reduce MIPS usage, accelerate mean time to resolution and deliver better performing applications to their end users.

CTG, SOAP and Websphere/MQ, which APM for Mainframe already supports, are three of the most common ways to connect distributed applications to the CICS region. These connector technologies have a role in facilitating billions of banking, e-commerce and insurance transactions that happen each day across the globe. Equipped with the ability to see the impact distributed applications are having on mainframe transactions and workload, enterprises can develop more efficient distributed applications and tune poorly performing ones on the fly.

"Many organizations just don't have a good understanding of how their mainframe is being utilized by distributed applications. They can see their MIPS are clearly rising; yet, they're inclined to attribute the spike in MIPS to increasing volume, when in fact it's often due to poorly tuned distributed applications," said Kris Manery, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Compuware Mainframe Solutions. "Consequently, these organizations have typically had little choice but to purchase more MIPS but, with APM for Mainframe, more MIPS doesn't have to be their first choice. That's because our solution identifies exactly how these critical business transactions are getting the data from z/OS and, if it's not in an efficient manner, organizations can pinpoint where the hotspots are and correct the issues to reduce MIPS and postpone costly upgrades."
