CA Technologies has launched the new release of CA Application Performance Management (APM) that will enable enterprises to manage the user experience of their applications.
The company claims that the new APM Command Center serves as a central hub for agent configuration enabling users to access an inventory of thousands of agents across multiple APM clusters in one view. They can generate diagnostic reports and diagnose agent configuration problems without delays.
This apart, new Smart Instrumentation functionality in CA APM automatically collects transaction traces enabling enterprises to proactively correct failures without recreating issues or change an application’s instrumentation. It provides diagnostic information about the transaction error to help users better triage problems.
“CA APM’s Smart Instrumentation gives us visibility into transaction traces, down through the call stack and into the code which is not only critical in helping our application development and delivery teams improve code quality, it also enables our application support teams to diagnose problems faster and reduce mean time to repair of outages,” said Chris Proulx, principle systems engineer, Liberty Mutual.
CA APM integrates mobile app and user data from the CA Mobile App Analytics (MAA) for end-to-end business transaction monitoring and mobile-to-mainframe visibility. Moreover, the solutions provide insight into complex applications from the mobile app, into middleware/infrastructure components, to the backend database or mainframe.
The company said CA APM can be used as a catalyst for DevOps to fuel collaboration across the organization by providing a common vocabulary for development and operations teams to analyze performance data across the application lifecycle via its integration with CA MAA.
This apart, CA APM agents can be deployed through CA Release Automation to enable the collection of application and performance data much earlier in the software development cycle further enhancing an organization’s ability to proactively address issues.
Also for a unified view of infrastructure and applications that impact business services, infrastructure management data from CA Unified Infrastructure Management (formerly CA Nimsoft Monitor) can be viewed and correlated within the CA APM dashboard.
