MELVILLE, NY – (May 5, 2009) – Nastel Technologies, a premier global provider of Business Transaction Performance™ (BTP™) solutions for mission-critical applications, today announced the release of AutoPilot TransactionWorks® a solution providing businesses with 360° situational awareness™, reduced transactional latency and improved business transaction performance™ to ensure optimum service levels while eliminating the hidden costs, or "stealth waste", in business processes.

AutoPilot TransactionWorks' unique Business Transaction Performance, or BTP, solution enables businesses to auto-discover the transactions that comprise their business processes such as payments, order management, accounting, and purchasing. It automatically maps them to the IT infrastructure and automates the determination and resolution of performance problems and degradations in order to proactively improve service and minimize operational risk. BTP makes it possible to instantly see technology issues in the context of a user's business. This enables users to be faster, prioritized and predictive in their management of customer-facing business services.

"In today's challenging economy businesses need to reduce costs without sacrificing service and compliance.  They need a real-time view of transactions in the context of their business in order to make the right decisions and remain competitive," said Charley Rich, Nastel VP of Marketing and Product Management.  "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 life blood of their business – any time, any place, anywhere."
