IT software and services firm Compuware has integrated capabilities into its flagship Vantage and Strobe products, designed to provide visibility into the performance of applications spanning distributed and mainframe environments.
Insight into end-to-end application performance from a single location will allow IT managers to speed up troubleshooting, and to isolate and resolve problems in a timely and cost-effective manner with minimum customer dissatisfaction, the firm claimed.
By unifying Strobe and Vantage, Compuware can appeal to customers running applications which use mainframe functionality in combination with client/server environments, according to Michael Allen, Compuware's European director of IT service management.
"More and more back-end apps are being re-fronted with client server front ends, but the code was not originally intended to be front-ended and the people who wrote it have gone away," he explained.
"We are probably one of the only companies that can bring the two worlds together, and follow real users from the front end to the back end."
