Application platform management (APM) firm dynaTrace has launched its fourth-generation APM software, designed to provide SMBs and enterprises with easy to use and comprehensive information analysis.
DynaTrace 4 aims to offer in-depth analysis of business transactions, and is ideal for use by financial, e-commerce, software and cloud firms.
Ten key improvements have been made to the APM software, the firm said, including the incorporation of dynaTrace's PurePath technology.
PurePath captures timing and code-level context for all transactions, directly from the user click, across all tiers to the database, the firm explained.
DynaTrace 4 has zero configuration time, and provides deep-root analysis out of the box, explained John Van Siclen, president of Compuware's dynaTrace subsidiary.
"This is our most major release for two years. The depth of dynaTrace 4 has been extended so there is more automation out of the box, increased hotspot analysis and single-click root cause analysis," he told V3.
"The software is aimed at SMBs that do not have a dedicated IT department, but there are also enterprise class capabilities included. The tool is not just for IT administrators or testers; it can be used by operations and business executives as the dashboard is easy to navigate."
The software can detect and monitor databases including Oracle, DB2 and SQL Server, and auto-adapts so as to eliminate the ongoing maintenance required with other APM systems.
Customers will be able to access dynaTrace 4 from smartphones and tablets via device browsers.
Siclen also confirmed to V3 that the firm is developing native applications for iOS, Android and Windows Phone which will make an appearance later this year.
The software is currently in its third beta phase and is expected to be available commercially in August. DynaTrace 4 is being trialled by customers including Novell and Lufthansa.
Typically, an SMB with over 100 employees can expect to pay around £20,000 for a perpetual software licence. This can be scaled up depending on the level of sophistication, applications and users. Existing dynaTrace 3 users will be upgraded for free.
DynaTrace was recently acquired by Compuware.
