Tidal Showcases New Capabilities in Application Performance Management for SOA at BEAWorld -- Booth 518

Brings Corrective Action Through Automation to Production SOA Applications

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2007) - Tidal Software™, a leading provider of application scheduling and performance management software, today announced that it will be showcasing Tidal™ Intersperse™, a comprehensive solution for monitoring and managing Java and SOA based applications, in booth 518. Demonstrations will highlight both currently available Intersperse 7 and the upcoming version, Intersperse 8, which features new corrective action automation for production SOA applications. Additionally, SOA expert and Tidal CTO Martin Milani will be giving a talk on new capabilities for active management of SOA in a session titled Bringing Business Process Automation to IT Management on Monday, September 10, at 5:00PM.

"Using Tidal Intersperse, BEA customers can have deep diagnostic insight into the whole of their environments and applications," said Mr. Milani. "With its ability to take corrective actions, Intersperse 7 is able to mitigate many production problems in real time. With Intersperse 8 corrective action automation will expand this capability by enabling the automation of an entire corrective action as a business process. This is the next step in our vision to provide application performance automation that ensures service level delivery capable of supporting the real time enterprise."

Tidal Intersperse is unique in its ability to monitor specific business transactions end-to-end across JVMs, allowing it to trace a business process across servers -- which is becoming increasingly common as SOA applications embrace more of the enterprise business processes. Tidal Intersperse offers the following distinct capabilities:

--  Application Mapping - automatically discovers and maps composite
    applications across portals, application servers, ESBs, and business
    process engines
    
--  Business Process Tracing - traces full scope of business processes
    across service layers
    
--  Aggregate SLA Monitoring - turns component level metrics into
    meaningful business data
    

Tidal Intersperse delivers mission critical support for the full BEA environment:

--  BEA WebLogic Server®
    
--  BEA Workshop™ for WebLogic
    
--  BEA WebLogic Portal®
    
--  BEA WebLogic® Integration
    
--  BEA AquaLogic® Service Bus
    
--  Full integration with BEA JRockit® and BEA JRockit Mission Control
