CA Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring

ISLANDIA, N.Y., March 1 -- CA, Inc. (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that it has been positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant in Gartner's 'Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring' report.* After evaluating 19 qualifying application performance management (APM) providers, Gartner positioned CA in the "Leaders" quadrant.

"CA Wily, on the strength of both its Introscope technology and its tight integration between Introscope and CEM (the packet-capture-based end-user experience monitoring system), is recognized as a market leader and, therefore, appears on most large-enterprise shortlists for general APM solutions," wrote Will Cappelli, vice president at Gartner and the report's author. "CA's byte code instrumentation-based Introscope technology remains the most effective technology available for deep-dive monitoring application server software and other middleware..."

The CA Wily APM solution allows the user to proactively detect, triage and diagnose performance problems in complex, composite and Web application environments, while providing end-to-end visibility to online transactions.

"We believe the findings in this Gartner report speak to what more than 1,200 customers already know -- that CA Wily APM is a trusted market leader with proven functionality and ease of use," said Cliff Meltzer, corporate senior vice president and general manager, CA Service Assurance business unit. "We are focused on providing the business insight necessary for our customers to deliver an optimal end-user experience that will drive increased satisfaction and revenue growth."
