Compuware has announced the latest release of its application performance management (APM) software, which aims to optimise the performance of desktop and mobile web sites.
Key features incorporated into the rebranded Compuware Gomez platform include Google Page Speed, real-time user monitoring, and the ability to carry out mobile readiness assessments and view an internet health map.
With Google Page Speed integrated into the offering, customers can assess the web performance of their site based on industry standards, and get recommendations on how to improve, explained Michael Allen, director of IT service management EMEA at Compuware.
"This is the first SaaS-based APM platform to integrate Google Page Speed, allowing users to look at web performance, receive advice and optimise their page from one location," he told V3.co.uk.
The mobile real-time user monitoring system allows organisations to see the performance end users experience when they use native mobile applications or access web sites from devices such as smartphones.
Similarly, the mobile readiness assessment allows customers to see what sort of an experience a mobile version of their site might provide and suggest key areas for improvement.
"Smartphones and tablets are becoming increasingly common, and allowing organisations to see how their platform performs compared to industry standards is becoming critical," Allen said.
"The Gomez platform allows users to measure real performance across mobile/native platforms, compare performance to see exactly what end users are experiencing and make necessary adjustments."
Compuware also runs a testing network consisting of over 150,000 computers, which gathers information from ISPs and forms an Internet Health Map showing the general internet performance in specific geographic locations.
"The Internet Health Map provides enterprises with baseline performance. If 20 enterprises are suffering from poor internet-related performance within a specific region, this may indicate that the problem lies at the ISP level, for example."
The Gomez platform takes over from the Vantage product range and is available as a free upgrade to existing customers.
Compuware offers SaaS and on-premise analytics capabilities, with prices starting from £5,000 per annum. Allen noted that the product is suitable for SMBs and large organisations.
