CA Extends Introscope To SOA Management

The company refreshes the upcoming version of Wily Introscope with customizable reporting for Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory requirements.

Enterprise software maker CA on Monday introduced software that extends its Wily Introscope application management suite to service-oriented architectures.

The Wily SOA Manager can manage transaction performance within an SOA by automatically identifying dependencies among services, monitoring service-based business processes, and alerting IT staff to problems. An SOA is a form of distributed computing that enables companies to expose application functionality as a service through a standard interface that can be accessed by other computing systems. Through SOAs, companies can automate business processes, such as order fulfillment.

The new product offers automatic discovery and monitoring of services and service dependencies, error detection and impact analysis, centralized configuration of alerting and reporting policies, and customizable reporting for Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory requirements. In addition, the software offers storage for all live performance data for trend analysis, capacity planning, and other management tasks.

SOA Manager requires Wily Introscope and supports a number of technology platforms, including Apache Axis, BEA Systems' WebLogic server, IBM's WebSphere application server, SAP's NetWeaver, and the Microsoft .Net Framework. The new product is scheduled to ship in April.

CA, the company formerly known as Computer Associates, bought enterprise application management vendor Wily Technology last year for $375 million in cash. The acquisition expanded CA's ability to manage hardware and software from the mainframe to distributed-computing environments.

The application management market is expected to grow to more than $1 billion this year, according to Gartner, growing to nearly $1.4 billion by 2009.
