Groundbreaking Technology Helps Customers Get Real:
Real-Time Visibility of Real Transactions Across Real Environments

BRISBANE, Calif. — September 12, 2005 — Wily Technology Inc., the leader in Enterprise Application Management, today announced Wily 6™, the latest generation of the most advanced solution for monitoring and improving the availability and performance of business-critical web applications. Only Wily 6 can provide application management teams with real-time visibility into actual customer transactions as they cross through heterogeneous systems, from the browser to connected back-ends. Wily 6 supports all leading application platforms and enterprise J2EE software packages, and is the essential technology powering Management 360™, Wily’s methodology for collaborative application management.

“Wily believes it’s time to get real about web application management,” said Dick Williams, president and CEO of Wily Technology, Inc. “Organizations trust their most critical functions to web applications running in highly complex heterogeneous environments, and control over those systems is fundamental to business success. Wily 6 delivers that control with real-time, end-to-end visibility into real transaction performance. With a single collaborative tool, Wily 6 customers can ensure applications are meeting business goals and generating revenue.”

Innovations in Wily 6 include Introscope® ErrorDetector™, the first solution for the detection and diagnosis of serious application errors that can prevent users from completing web transactions; expanded capabilities to monitor IBM WebSphere MQ; and significant deployment and usability enhancements to Wily’s award-winning Introscope product.

Each day web applications generate millions of errors that compromise the satisfaction of end users and execution of business transactions. Yet, these unpredictable errors typically pass unseen by application managers since they may not cause application failure or even show up on monitoring systems.

Introscope ErrorDetector is the first solution that allows IT teams to detect these hidden errors in live production applications, pinpoint where errors occur within the transaction path and then deliver specific information about the root cause. Seamlessly integrated with Introscope and Transaction Tracer™, Introscope ErrorDetector requires no development effort or code changes, and allows application management teams to capture real-time error data for historical trend analysis.

For additional application user experience visibility, Wily’s Browser Response Time (BRT) Adapter is now also integrated with Transaction Tracer, enabling the tracking of network latency issues down to individual transactions. The BRT Adapter is the only end-to-end monitor to provide full, component-level transaction visibility from the browser to back-end systems with no hardware, no synthetic transactions, no code changes, with zero security risk and the lowest overhead in the industry.

“Companies that lack the intelligence to quickly identify where performance issues occur within revenue-generating applications place the well being of their business at risk,” said Bernd Harzog, CEO of “Wily continues to lead the way in application performance management with true end-to-end monitoring, so companies can quickly identify and correct problems in real-time, whether they occur at the end-user level or inside complex, connected back-end systems.”

Wily 6 includes the upgraded Introscope PowerPack™ for IBM WebSphere MQ that delivers real-time performance measurement of the most widely deployed messaging solution in enterprise computing. This PowerPack provides monitoring for IBM WebSphere MQ as well as the connectors to the Java applications MQ supports, enabling correlation of application and messaging infrastructure performance. By isolating specific bottlenecks that occur within the messaging infrastructure, the PowerPack allows IT staff to quickly capture and route information about performance issues in any MQ-connected application to the appropriate MQ administrator for rapid resolution.

Introscope 6 delivers on Wily’s Management 360 promise, enabling customers to gain comprehensive control over their enterprise web applications with a single tool for all stakeholders. Introscope’s track record of reliability and customer success has made it the standard for managing composite applications in complex environments like Services Oriented Architectures (SOAs), and for implementing best practices like those of ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library). Specific new enhancements to Introscope 6 include:

• Console Lens – A new tool that enables IT staff to use an existing dashboard configuration to monitor multiple applications, simplifying dashboard deployment and speeding time to value.
• WebView – Wily’s remote web-based tool for viewing application performance data offers enhanced scalability and usability features so an expanded number of IT stakeholders can utilize Introscope 6 to collaboratively monitor their applications anytime, anywhere.
• Transaction Events Database – A new, fully integrated database allows for quick and efficient storage of individual user transaction and application error data to enable benchmarking, rapid correlation and analysis of specific problematic transactions.

In today’s enterprise computing environments, complexity and heterogeneity are reality. Wily 6 is the only platform-independent application management solution that is fully compatible with any enterprise J2EE application environment. Wily 6 supports all leading application and SOA platforms: IBM WebSphere, including WebSphere Portal and WebSphere Business Integration; BEA® WebLogic® including WebLogic Portal and WebLogic Integration; SAP® NetWeaver™ including SAP Enterprise Portal; Fujitsu® Interstage®; Oracle® 10g; Sun® ONE; Apache Tomcat; ATG; JBoss; Macromedia® JRun and any other J2EE-compliant platform.
