CA Technologies Releases New CA Mainframe Application Tuner

Nov 09, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- CA Technologies announced it is driving increased business continuity by speeding performance resolution for critical applications with a new release of CA Mainframe Application Tuner.

According to a release, the graphical interface in CA Mainframe Application Tuner 9.0 is designed to increase productivity to more quickly resolve performance inefficiencies in z/OS-based systems before they impact the customer and the business bottom line.

"Providing an friendly interface helps diverse teams across the performance management spectrum work together more effectively," said Julie Craig, Enterprise Management Associates' Research Director. "Both new and experienced users will appreciate the rich visualization the new release of CA Mainframe Application Tuner offers and the ability to see and compare multiple data views without having to remember commands." CA said its Mainframe Application Tuner 9.0 extends the company's cross-platform application performance management solution and builds on last year's release, which combined automated performance management with drill-down performance metrics. By providing a graphical user interface that displays performance data from multiple sources in a single view, CA Mainframe Application Tuner discovers tuning opportunities, simplifies root cause analysis and speeds resolution of application performance problems to drive improved business service performance.

"We are focused on enabling the next generation of IT professionals to more effectively manage the cross-platform, hybrid computing environment of mainframe, distributed and cloud," said Aline Gerew, senior vice president, Software Engineering, CA Technologies. "The graphical interface in CA Mainframe Application Tuner 9.0 has a look and feel similar to other CA Application Quality and Testing Tools, which helps lower the learning curve for next-generation technologists and helps them to resolve performance problems more quickly." "Adding a graphical interface to CA Mainframe Application Tuner 9.0 is a great advancement in the CA Technologies strategy to modernize the mainframe environment for today's IT worker," said Jurgen Falk, Performance Management Specialist, LVM. "As our IT staffing needs shift and cross-platform skills are more in demand, we are very pleased that CA Technologies is developing its solutions to meet the needs of the next IT generation."
