Presentation Details

Today's Web and mobile applications are placing unprecedented demand on the
mainframe, driving a sharp increase in MIPS. What may look like volume-driven
MIPS growth, however, may actually be due to a distributed application
inefficiently accessing the mainframe. With proper visibility into how and why
the distributed application is accessing DB2, teams can determine how best to
tune the application so that it optimally interacts with the mainframe, using
as few MIPS as possible. 

The session will explore Compuware APM for Mainframe's ability to provide 24/7
visibility into how distributed applications are accessing DB2. Attendees will
see a live demo of how Compuware's patented PurePath Technology® combined with
Strobe can trace and report on all transactions from all users, from the
browser to the mainframe.

Compuware will exhibit at IDUG from Tuesday, April 30 to Thursday, May 2 at
booth number 200.
