Provides 24×7 monitoring of business transactions in a single pane of glass across mainframe
CA Technologies has introduced Cross-Enterprise Application Performance Management (CA CE APM) which extends mainframe monitoring capabilities and provides information about the health and performance of key IT services.
CA CE APM monitors and collects information on the mainframe and integrates with CA APM to provide 24×7 monitoring of business transactions in a single pane of glass across mainframe, distributed and the cloud.
With CA CE APM, organisations can move from managing and maintaining IT to delivering business services in support of organisational goals.
The CA CE APM includes over 90 metrics for DB2 for z/OS, end-to-end IMS for z/OS and information about network traffic across mainframe and distributed platforms that help pinpoint problems affecting the performance or availability of an application or service.
In addition, the new release includes a virtual infrastructure view for staff to diagnose problems in the virtual environment and resolve them, information on how well SaaS vendor-delivered applications are performing for end-users and also includes expanded information used to monitor cloud services.
CA Technologies Mainframe general manager Dayton Semerjian said clients are focusing on how IT can be more strategic to the business by providing decision makers and IT staff with information about IT services and how their predictability and availability impacts business outcomes.
"This new release of CA CE APM offers IT staff more real-time visibility into the customer experience to help them optimize customer-facing applications and services, no matter where they reside," said Semerjian.
