Tony Konczak, Senior Mainframe Sustaining Engineer of Fiserv, to Speak At May 4 Session on How to Implement Application Monitoring Using AutoPilot

MELVILLE, NY (May 4, 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 will be showcasing its AutoPilot® M6 Suite of application performance management products at the IBM Impact 2010 conference, May 2-7 in Las Vegas. Highlighting Nastel’s appearance at the show will be a special AutoPilot educational session by guest speaker Tony Konczak, Senior Mainframe Sustaining Engineer, of financial technologies giant Fiserv, who will describe the performance advantages Fiserv has gained using AutoPilot M6.

Konczak’s presentation (Session #2984A), to take place at noon on Tuesday, May 4 in the Casanova Room #602 of the Venetian Resort & Casino, is entitled "Fiserv’s enterprise-wide monitoring of Bill Payment and Fraud Detection.” In addition to discussing the performance benefits Fiserv has achieved, the session will relate how AutoPilot was implemented at Fiserv, a Fortune 500 company that supplies financial services technology solutions to more than 16,000 institutional clients worldwide.

AutoPilot M6 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 engine, enables management teams to identify and fix problems—even predict and prevent them—before they compromise SLA or other performance standards.

AutoPilot M6 was positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring” by Will Cappelli, February 18, 2010. AutoPilot TransactionWorks®, the newest addition to the AutoPilot family, prompted Forrester Research to select Nastel as a “Hot Banking Tech Company” in its December 23, 2009 report, “Hot Banking Tech Companies To Watch In 2010”.

“Many billion-dollar businesses today rely on key enterprise applications for a significant portion of their internal and/or external processes. AutoPilot has proven itself to be a critical factor in maintaining the efficiency and overall performance of these applications,” said Charley Rich, vice president of marketing and product management for Nastel. “At IBM Impact, business and IT executives will have the chance to talk about AutoPilot with top Nastel technical and sales personnel—and to see AutoPilot in action.”

Fiserv, an AutoPilot customer since 2006, uses Nastel AutoPilot for monitoring and SLA management for their bill payment and fraud detection applications. A program of work was initiated in 2006 to develop a new solution that could address the needs of Fiserv’s middleware team, to introduce more flexible and efficient mechanisms for assuring the performance and availability of their critical lines of business.

Nastel’s exhibit at IBM Impact 2010 will be located at Booth S1 in Las Vegas’ Venetian Resort & Casino. To learn more, visit the display or visit the AutoPilot Overview.
