Top Research Firm Recognizes Precise for Application Performance Management

Precise Is Unique in Its Ability to Track Transaction Performance in Database and Storage

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - November 10, 2010) -  Precise, the global leader in transaction performance management, today announced that a new report from top market research firm Gartner has recognized Precise for its strong position in the application performance monitoring (APM) market. 

While enterprises report that business transactions spend over 60% of their response time in database and storage systems, many IT organizations have failed to focus on the impact of these systems on application Quality of Service. According to Gartner, by 2013, 20% of Global 2000 companies will isolate and monitor storage I/O latency as part of an organized approach to APM, up from less than 5% in 2010.

"If you are experiencing performance problems from your mission-critical applications, implement transaction performance solutions, but not just for the business process (or customer transaction)," said Gartner analyst Will Cappelli in his report, "APM Technologies Must Monitor Storage I/O Latency," September 2010. "Look to go deep into the infrastructure, including storage latency, to find and mitigate performance risks. Once armed with the right diagnosis at the right level of granularity, system and performance architects can either tune accordingly or invest in modernizing their infrastructure to get the performance needed."

"Until recently, IT monitoring stopped short of the systems of record -- databases and storage -- which is where every transaction ends up," said Zohar Gilad, executive vice president for Precise. "We have solved that problem and extended application monitoring to databases and storage. This promises significant improvement in response time and reliability for business people who rely on enterprise systems to drive sales, customer relationships and market growth."
