ISLANDIA, N.Y., November 5, 2012 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it is driving increased business continuity by speeding performance resolution for critical applications with a new release of CA Mainframe Application Tuner. The rich graphical interface in CA Mainframe Application Tuner 9.0 is designed to increase productivity to more quickly resolve performance inefficiencies in z/OS-based systems before they impact the customer and the business bottom line.
“Providing an intuitive interface helps diverse teams across the performance management spectrum work together more effectively,” said Julie Craig, Enterprise Management Associates’ Research Director. “Both new and experienced users will appreciate the rich visualization the new release of CA Mainframe Application Tuner offers and the ability to see and compare multiple data views without having to remember commands.”
