ASG Announces the General Availability of ASG-becubic™ Version 7

New Version of ASG-becubic™ Positions ASG as a Leader in Application Portfolio Management

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - ASG Software Solutions, the originator of ASG's Business Service Platform™ (BSP™), a true platform for Business Service Management (BSM), today announced the general availability of ASG-becubic™ Version 7. A powerful tool for application discovery and understanding as well as application portfolio management, this new version of the highly regarded ASG-becubic product is a substantial advance in support of ASG's BSP, the most comprehensive BSM solution set available today.

"The technology, enterprise-wide view, and ability to assess the depth and breadth of the application portfolio provided by ASG-becubic Version 7 is exactly what our customers requested, and what the marketplace demands," explains Bob Humes, ASG Director of Product Management. "With the ability to fully analyze their application portfolio, IT managers can make the best possible applications-related decisions and enable their organizations to operate better, faster and at a lower overall cost. This gives our customers a distinct competitive advantage."

ASG-becubic benefits application developers, project leads and operational staff who need highly granular analysis capabilities across distributed and mainframe environments. ASG-becubic supports enterprise-wide impact analysis as well as propagation and root cause analysis, providing in-depth applications relationship understanding and documentation.

Version 7 enables IT management to define rules to represent multiple views of applications and relate artifacts (including programs, job control language [JCL] and more) to one or more applications. This results in extremely flexible portfolio measurement and assessment. The architecture of the new version of ASG-becubic has been redesigned for scalability, enabling users to process higher volumes of data and enjoy improved performance. It also includes integrated industry-standard metrics such as McCabe and Halstead and application snapshot views. These capabilities enable IT managers to assess current state and trends within a highly extensible meta-model, building a strong foundation for application portfolio management.
