APM Industry Support for IBM WebSphere Environments with dynaTrace 4.1

This new release furthers Compuware's leadership in the APM industry

Compuware Corporation, the technology performance company, today announced the release of Compuware dynaTrace 4.1, the industry's first application performance management (APM) solution to provide full support for IBM WebSphere Message Broker. dynaTrace 4.1 also adds to its powerful User Experience Management (UEM) capabilities, enhances visualization and integrates with Compuware Gomez(R) Real-User Monitoring - Data Center.

This new release furthers Compuware's leadership in the APM industry and extends its ability to deliver unprecedented business agility, cost optimization and competitive advantages to the marketplace.

dynaTrace 4.1 provides the industry's broadest support of IBM WebSphere and brings exclusive, cutting-edge APM to IBM WebSphere environments including: WebSphere Message Broker, Application Servers and Portal Servers. dynaTrace advanced end-to-end transaction tracing and UEM combine with superior visibility to provide unparalleled development, test and operational insight into WebSphere infrastructures.

"Customers across industries and around the world rely on the IBM WebSphere stack and WebSphere Message Broker to conduct tens of millions critical business transactions a day, and now they enjoy unprecedented visibility into those transactions from the world's leading APM solution," said John Van Siclen, General Manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "The end result is significantly improved time-to-value and faster ROI for WebSphere deployments and updates. Development, test and production costs are all slashed by reducing the time it takes to create, debug and finalize production releases."

"Finding application performance problems within complex multi-tier web applications can be challenging, even for the most experienced," said Thomas Murphy, research director at Gartner. "Modern applications often make use of feature rich clients running on desktops and/or devices connected to services via message oriented middleware. While this provides a great deal of flexibility for creating information exchange between applications it can also lead to a great deal of complexity, making it difficult to identify and diagnose the root cause of application performance issues, especially in real-time."

dynaTrace 4.1 provides considerable business value to anyone using the WebSphere stack or any part thereof, including WebSphere Message Broker users. With dynaTrace 4.1, WebSphere users can determine in real time if messages are flowing correctly or if messages have not been properly received by the intended recipient services and whether Message Broker is properly configured to maximize service efficiency. Additionally, by reducing the amount of time spent isolating and repairing problems, dynaTrace slashes Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR) for all aspects of WebSphere implementations.

This latest version of dynaTrace also brings users expanded business value through:

  • Enhanced visibility into third-party website content with images and graphs to display performance data related to content served by content delivery networks (CDNs) and ad-servers. This feature easily auto-configures as part of the dynaTrace dashboard, which conveys the precise performance impact of third-party content on application responsiveness and ultimately, the user experience.
  • Browser diagnostics visualized provides precise screenshots of what end-users see and presents unparalleled details about browser-based application performance. dynaTrace now takes periodic screenshots of the browser window to show what happens when and in what sequence the browser renders the locations of Web pages. This true visibility from the user perspective identifies browser issues that cannot be seen from the data center, speeds the resolution of problems, and improves customer experience and satisfaction. Additionally, improved export capabilities and timer-based performance numbers make Browser Diagnostics a repeatable part of the development process.
  • dynaTrace integration with Compuware Gomez(R) Real-User Monitoring - Data Center provides real-time transaction status in role-specified dashboards across all application tiers. Additionally, users now gain deep diagnostic capability through a single click, enabling unprecedented root cause analysis. This also complements existing integration with the Gomez(R) Web Load Testing and Synthetic Monitoring solutions.
