MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 10 -- ClearApp, a provider
of comprehensive application service management (ASM) for J2EE-based
composite applications, today announced support for Oracle SOA
Suite, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, with the latest version
of its flagship ASM solution, QuickVision 7.5. The product's support of
Oracle SOA Suite can provide customers a top-down topology of their SOA
applications across heterogeneous platforms. From this unique visual
model, IT users can drill down directly from high-level transactions
from their composite applications into Oracle-based SOA components and
servers. This end-to-end SOA performance management solution helps
maximize the availability of mission-critical SOA applications by
shortening the amount of time to resolve incidents and, in many cases,
eliminating performance bottlenecks before they impact the end user.
QuickVision 7.5 features integration to Oracle BPEL Process Manager,
automatically generating a visual model connecting complete Business
Process Execution Language (BPEL) workflows to their underlying Web
services, Oracle Enterprise Services Bus, and J2EE resources. SOA
application owners and operational staff can monitor performance and
drill down directly into the SOA application model to dive into
performance metrics at the lowest component level. Performance
bottlenecks can be eliminated by quickly isolating and diagnosing the
root cause at any BPEL application level. Finally, QuickVision provides
problem management from a single console with root cause analysis and
trending to isolate bottlenecks and diagnose SOA application
performance problems within a business context.
For Oracle SOA Suite customers, QuickVision 7.5 provides visibility
across application middleware in heterogeneous environments, such as
Oracle BPEL Process Manager running on BEA WebLogic Application Server.
QuickVision's real-time change management dynamically assesses the
potential impact of any dependency change on service levels prior to
planned downtime and then automatically reconfigures the model.
"Experience has shown that bottoms-up systems management and
application performance management approaches are not sufficient when
deploying complex composite applications," said Richard L. Ptak, a
principal analyst with Ptak, Noel and Associates. "We recommend a
service modeling approach for any enterprise managing SOA across
multiple layers of middleware. Systems management vendors should
consider either building a services model themselves or partnering with
ClearApp if they wish to shortcut the path to delivering full
QuickVision 7.5 Provides Visibility across J2EE Application Server Platforms
ClearApp QuickVision 7.5 contains a number of enhancements that allow SOA application owners to gain top-down, cross platform performance visibility with limited expertise. In addition to support for Oracle SOA Suite, QuickVision now supports the latest versions of application servers IBM WebSphere 6.1 and BEA WebLogic 10. Available for beta deployments today and scheduled for general availability in February 2008, version 7.5 delivers a number of usability enhancements including:
"We are pleased to support Oracle SOA Suite and to offer all of our
customers true SOA application support on a robust, growing platform,"
said Jason Donahue, president and CEO of ClearApp. "We are excited to be
leveraging our model-based application service management capabilities
to help Oracle customers to get the most value out of their SOA and
composite application deployments."
ASM bridges the IT visibility gap inherent in today's complex
composite applications. Without having this context, it has become
virtually impossible to effectively diagnose application service
problems in enterprise applications that leverage multiple layers of
middleware. An unmanageable application, no matter its sophistication
or richness of services, provides little value to an organization.
Further, an IT operations team must understand an application's logic
to be able to effectively conduct the impact analysis required to stay
ahead of potential application problems.
ClearApp is a member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork. Last month, ClearApp QuickVision 7.5 was highlighted during a breakout session at Oracle OpenWorld 2007 in San Francisco.
