Nastel Partnership with Thinksoft Improves Application Diagnostics Through Test and Development Cycle

Organizations will now have end-to-end visibility at transaction level to identify performance bottlenecks more rapidly before moving critical applications into production

MELVILLE, N.Y.--Nastel Technologies, a premier global provider of application performance monitoring solutions for mission-critical applications from the datacenter to the cloud, and Thinksoft Global Services, a leading business assurance and software testing specialist for the financial services industry, today announced a partnership that will utilize Nastel’s AutoPilot® M6 diagnostic technology in Thinksoft’s performance testing engagements. This will allow Thinksoft’s customers to gain deep dive visibility into application performance, across Java, .NET and messaging middleware.

"This will reduce the hassle of production implementation and time dependency on integration with management frameworks without compromising the application’s availability as it moves into the production environment."

Today’s aggressive business environment has put pressure on financial services companies to successfully complete millions of transactions on a daily basis. In order to meet these demands, companies require the ability to proactively recognize performance issues with business critical applications and prevent problems from interrupting daily business, breaching SLAs and subsequently impacting revenue. To accomplish this task, these organizations need applications that are successfully completing transactions on time, every time.

The combination of Nastel’s award-winning AutoPilot solution with Thinksoft’s market-leading services will provide deep visibility into middleware revealing issues that had previously been undetectable; thus, yielding more accurate and faster diagnostics of performance bottlenecks in the test and development stage. This in turn will allow for better application quality and an uptick in the number of problems identified within the middleware level before applications are sent into production. This is important as the earlier in an application’s lifecycle a problem is resolved, the less expensive that resolution is.

“The inclusion of Nastel’s technology in our performance testing engagements will allow us to extend our reach from QA and testing to production by creating a methodology that links QA, testing and production into a continuous improvement cycle,” said John R. Kiley, VP of the Americas Region at Thinksoft Global Services Inc. “This will reduce the hassle of production implementation and time dependency on integration with management frameworks without compromising the application’s availability as it moves into the production environment.”

“This partnership allows organizations to optimize and improve Q/A test projects and subsequently identify problems earlier in the application lifecyle,” said Charley Rich, VP of Product Management, Nastel. “Utilizing AutoPilot M6, organizations will see improved diagnostics in mixed Java, .NET and middleware environments, especially those with an IBM WebSphere footprint. This will allow organizations to reduce and simplify integration testing by providing better visibility into moving parts and simplify the process for reproducing production problems in test.”
