Compuware Corporation has released a new version of its integrated application performance management (APM) solution, the Compuware Gomez platform. This release introduces solutions that help customers increase revenues, profitability, and brand equity by optimizing mobile and Web application performance across the entire application delivery chain.

New features and capabilities in the Gomez Spring 2011 Platform Release include:

Gomez Mobile Real-User Monitoring: A mobile real-user monitoring solution that enables organizations to understand the actual performance end users are experiencing when using native mobile applications or accessing Web sites from mobile devices. It works for native mobile applications and browsers across any mobile device, operating system, or carrier.

Gomez Mobile Readiness Assessment: Provides an automatic assessment of the readiness of a Web site for mobile visitors by scoring the site against a set of standards and suggesting areas of improvement. This allows organizations to rate their mobile application's capability to run across devices and browsers.

Gomez Browser Real-User Monitoring Performance Conversion Analytics: Measures the business impact of poor performance on Web conversions by correlating Web performance with abandonment along each step of a Web transaction. For every step, Gomez Browser Real-User Monitoring measures the number of users who have a satisfying, tolerating, or frustrating experience. This aids Web teams in assessing if performance is helping or hurting their Web conversions, which directly impacts their online revenues.

Integration with Google Page Speed: Integration with Google Page Speed enables organizations to leverage Google technology to automatically assesses Web performance against a set of rules, providing a specific score and recommendations for improvement. This allows organizations to optimize their Web pages based on industry best-practices.

Internet Health Map with Last Mile Data: This free offering from Compuware uses a "collective intelligence" approach to indicate the operational health of the Internet to help organizations determine if a performance problem is specific to them or is shared by other users. By comparing the results of the millions of tests that run on the Gomez global performance network every day to a rolling baseline of data for the same weekday and time, the Gomez Internet Health Map detects aberrations that are indicative of a general Internet performance issue at specific geographic locations

New High-volume Load-testing Agent: In addition to current real-world load generation from browsers and mobile devices, Gomez Web Load Testing now offers a highly scalable HTTP load agent that generates load from the cloud. The new agent enables self-service Web load testing up to millions of page views per hour and can be run in conjunction with the Gomez Last Mile.

Updated Products for the Data Center: Enhancements to Gomez Business Service Manager (formerly called Vantage Service Manager), Gomez Real-User Monitoring – Data Center (formerly called Vantage Real-User Monitoring), and Gomez Java and .NET Monitoring (formerly called Vantage for Java and NET Monitoring) deliver visibility in data center performance monitoring.

New Support for Cisco Unified Compute Server: Compuware has certified and optimized its on-premises software to integrate with and run on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). Compuware has a strategic technology integration agreement with Cisco and will be the OEM and authorized manufacturer to sell and recommend Cisco UCS to run all on-premises Gomez APM solutions.
