Compuware has acquired applications performance management (APM) specialist dynaTrace in a bid to provide better insight into the operations of applications running as software and web-based tools.
Massachusetts-based dynaTrace will be integrated into Compuware's operations over the coming months, and will become part of the Compuware Gomez APM platform.
"As customers try to drive new web capabilities into the market faster, there needs to be a much tighter relationship between development and operations," said Compuware APM vice president of product management Claudia Dent.
"DynaTrace complements that with incredible depth and detail at the code, device and browser levels."
Dent told V3.co.uk that the ability to monitor and manage web-based applications is of particular interest to Compuware, and the acquisition will improve the company's APM tools for platforms such as Java and .Net.
Eventually, Dent sees the APM tools helping to streamline the development and deployment of enterprise applications.
Compuware hopes that the platform will offer a clearer picture of the way applications operate by allowing developers to better connect with operations and support staff.
"This positions us to be a leader in the APM market in a way that we haven't been positioned before," said Dent. "This combination really meets the demands for modern applications and cloud-based services."
