Wily enhancements speed deployment and extend support for Web Services and Java standards

IBM WEBSPHERE TECHNICAL CONFERENCE, LONDON, England — May 26, 2005 — Wily Technology, the leader in Enterprise Application Management, today announced general availability of Wily Portal Manager 5.3.2 for IBM® WebSphere® Portal™, supporting IBM WebSphere Portal versions 5.1 or 5.0.2x. The first comprehensive solution specifically designed to monitor enterprise portals and their connections to back-end systems, Wily Portal Manager 5.3.2 for IBM WebSphere Portal includes new features that support the latest Web Services and Java standards, and is even faster to deploy than previous versions.

Wily Portal Manager is the industry's only portal management solution tuned specifically to IBM WebSphere Portal that provides real-time visibility across the entire portal workflow, drills down into individual portlets and extends into connected back-end resources beyond the portal framework. Wily’s patented Blame™ technology allows administrators to address issues before they impact users and stay on top of service level agreements and quality of service goals. Rather than requiring the rebuilding and load-testing of each portlet outside of the production environment, which is costly and time-consuming, Wily Portal Manager enables administrators to easily isolate problem portlets and focus on optimizing portal applications and performance, rather than focusing on resolving application failures and bottlenecks.

"Wily is closely aligned with IBM's product strategy, and is committed to its partnership with IBM to provide the highest levels of performance and management solutions for joint customers," said Mike Malloy, senior vice president of Marketing, Wily Technology, Inc. "Wily Portal Manager 5.3.2 will enable IBM WebSphere Portal customers to address their critical portal performance challenges and increase the ROI of their portal projects."

Key new features and benefits of Wily Portal Manager 5.3.2 for IBM WebSphere include:

•Supports Web Services Remote Portlet (WSRP) standard — Enables easy integration of remote content and application logic, with no need for custom adapters or content providers

•Auto-detects all portlets in the WebSphere Portal environment — Speeds and simplifies deployment with auto-detection of all portlets, including consumer and producer remote portlets

•Monitors the standard Java Specification Request (JSR) 168 portlet API — Assures interoperability between portlets and portals through consistent information aggregation, personalization, presentation and security

•Monitors the new standard JSR 168 portlet container

•Works with Wily Introscope® 5.3.2, the latest version of the market-leading enterprise application management solution
