Nastel Technologies has released AutoPilot TransactionWorks, software that provides what the company calls “360-degree situational awareness” of operational and transactional data. The business process mapping software also can rid businesses of hidden costs — what the company calls “stealth waste” — in business processes.
The software maps business processes such as payments, accounting and purchasing to the information technology infrastructure and automates the detection and resolution of performance problems. As a result, users can be more “predictive” in their business planning, the company said.
TransactionWorks tracks the messages that flow between applications, monitors transaction behavior, volume, and performance and compares these metrics to service-level agreements.
“In today’s challenging economy, businesses need to reduce costs without sacrificing service quality, availability and compliance,” said Charley Rich, Nastel’s vice president of marketing and product management. Businesses “need a real-time view of transactions in the context of their business in order to make the right decisions and remain competitive. TransactionWorks will help firms drive the performance of their business transactions by improving visibility across both the distributed and mainframe tiers and enabling them to more efficiently manage the transactions that are the lifeblood of their business — any time, any place, anywhere.”
The AutoPilot suite includes modules for monitoring and managing infrastructure components, including IBM WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Application Server, Web Sphere Business Integrator and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus.
