DETROIT, Jul 27, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — Compuware Corporation /quotes/comstock/15*!cpwr/quotes/nls/cpwr (CPWR 8.20, -0.06, -0.73%) has published a new whitepaper titled: “Performance in the Cloud.” The paper examines how companies can manage the performance and availability of applications in the cloud by using real-time data to monitor cloud service providers. An on-demand webcast on performance in the cloud is also available at: http://bit.ly/cn5P26.
Cloud Computing is driving a fundamental shift in the way organizations build, deploy and use applications, and it’s raising expectations on how quickly and cost-effectively new IT functionality can be made available to the business. And even though the delivery chain for these “borderless applications” now crosses organizational and geographic boundaries, users will still expect the applications to perform well, and they will hold IT accountable if they don’t. IT is faced with managing an increasingly complex and diverse delivery chain, consisting of dozens of service and content providers spread around the world.
The challenge for IT is to meet the business expectation of faster delivery of new functionality, while at the same time maintaining end-to-end visibility and control of application performance and availability across an inter-dependent, but independent, network of service providers.
This Compuware whitepaper and on-demand webcast provide real-world insight into how companies are successfully addressing this challenge, and how they can get objective, real-time data on the performance and availability of their prospective cloud service providers to assist them in their decision-making process.
