Compuware and Savvis Expand APM Partnership

Savvis, a provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, has expanded its application performance management (APM) partnership with Compuware.

With nearly 2,500 clients - including more than 30 of the top 100 companies in the Fortune 500 - some of the world's most recognizable brands rely on Savvis, a CenturyLink company, to host and manage their web-based client applications, many of which are accessed daily by millions of end users. In order to ensure that these systems - as well as their own cloud and hosting infrastructures - are up and running 24/7 with uninterrupted service, Savvis partnered with Compuware for application performance.

Savvis joined the Compuware Partner Network in 2009 through an agreement to resell the Gomez SaaS Web performance management solution and offer it as part of its hosting platform to its clients. Savvis has now extended this partnership to include the Gomez on-premises APM product suite.

The Gomez platform is used for optimizing the performance of web, non-web, mobile, streaming and cloud applications. Gomez provides a unified view across the entire application delivery chain, from a user's browser or mobile device, across the internet or a corporate WAN, in the cloud, to inside the data center.

With the ability to monitor user performance across the entire application delivery chain, Savvis and its clients now have complete visibility into application health and can proactively resolve performance issues.

"Customers have very little patience for sluggish applications, which means that poor application performance can impact revenue. Peak application performance helps ensure customers have a positive experience, which often determines if they will do business with an enterprise again," says Kimberly King, vice president of channels and alliances at Compuware Corporation. "Our expanded partnership with Savvis demonstrates Compuware's continued commitment to meeting this demand by providing world-class APM solutions that deliver outstanding value to meet the business needs of our partners."
