"Hot Banking Tech Companies to Watch in 2010" - Business Transaction Monitoring from Nastel is selected

Report by Leading Independent Market Research Firm Cites Nastel For Addressing Nascent Business Transaction Management Market

Melville, NY (PRWeb UK) January 6, 2010 -- Nastel Technologies, a premier global provider of business transaction performance™ (BTP™) solutions for mission-critical applications spanning both the distributed and mainframe tiers, announced today that it has been selected as a “Hot Banking Tech Company” by Forrester Research, Inc. in their independent December 23, 2009 report “Hot Banking Tech Companies To Watch In 2010.” The report is a description of eight “emerging or smaller companies that have caught our attention because they have targeted overlooked segments” of the banking industry. Nastel’s inclusion in the “Hot Banking Tech Companies To Watch In 2010” report was for its AutoPilot® TransactionWorks®.

The newest addition to its AutoPilot M6® application performance management family of products, AutoPilot M6 with TransactionWorks gives IT professionals and line-of-business managers 360-degree situational awareness® of the entire IT environment, including both transactional and operational data in a unified business context. The solution, with its built-in complex event processing engine, enables management teams to identify and fix problems—even predict and prevent them—before they compromise SLA or other performance standards.

According to the Forrester Research report, “For May 2009 alone, New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Euronext announced that its global trading venues experienced double-digit year-over-year trading volume growth, all while the global economy was clearly on the rocks.” It also stated, “In one discussion with a global investment bank earlier this year, Forrester learned that for the nearly 4,000 trades that were executed every second, the system had to handle nearly 90,000 system postings per second.”

Forrester’s report also stated that “The nascent business transaction management (BTM) market is separating from the more general business services management arena, and Nastel is articulating clear industry and role fits for its AutoPilot TransactionWorks.”

“Nastel Technologies has identified and successfully addressed an increasingly critical need among banking and investment firms,” said Charley Rich, vice president of marketing and product management for Nastel. “We believe our role will only become more important as investors’ and regulators’ expectations for reliability increase, and the need for deep-dive visibility requisite to make this possible becomes even more important.”
