Unformatted text preview: EMA IMPACT BRIEF | Page 1 2008 Enterprise Management Associates, Inc. All Rights Reserved. CA Wily Announces APM Enhancements Focusing on SOA and Web Services Deployments Abstract In October, 2008, CA announced multiple enhancements to its Wily Application Management (APM) solution, part of CAs Enterprise IT Management (EITM) strategy. EITM focuses on simplifying the process of managing enterprise IT, and includes prod- ucts that address IT Service Management (ITSM), application lifecycle management, and application management, among other capabilities. The announcements center on enhancements to CA Wily Introscope and Customer Experience Manager (CEM), key products underlying the APM solution. Featured enhancements include better product integration, improved support for .NET, and full support for IP v6. CA Wily also announced simpliFed pricing and product bundles, and customers now receive Introscope PowerPacks, extensions, and add-ons as part of the Introscope offering. New and Enhanced Solutions On October 7, 2008, the Wily division of CA announced ten new and enhanced Enterprise IT Management and governance solutions. Announcements in the application manage- ment space focused on a new release of CA Wilys Application Performance Management solution.

The enhancements support clustering, IP v6 compliance, and parity between Java and .NET support.

The result is a product capable of tracking Service Level Agreements (SLAs) from the user through the transaction and down to infrastructure. These capabilities, which include mainframe support, position CA among the leaders in the management of SOA and composite applications. Background for this Announcement SOA and Web Services deployments have become mainstream over the past two years, with approximately 50% of companies now reporting deployment of one or both. Not coincidentally, during that same timeframe IT organizations have lost ground in their ability to proactively manage the enterprise. Research conducted in June, 2008 found that the percentage of application problems reported by users as opposed to being detected by IT has risen, and comparison with earlier research shows a percentage increase of 10% in two years. EMA believes there is a direct link between the growth of SOA, Web Services and virtualization, and these statistics....
