Compuware's involvement in mobile APM dates back to 2009 when the company delivered its first mobile synthetic testing solution.

Focused on both mobile application developers and operations teams, this SaaS-based tool monitors mobile performance from what Compuware calls “the real user” perspective. The suggestion here is that developers will have the ability to analyze who is using their mobile applications; see performance by device and browser; know the impact of device characteristics such as signal strength, battery charge, and memory; all with integrated crash detection and diagnostics.

This insight is hoped to enable developers and operations staff to proactively address performance issues and maximize business results, which is arguably of critical importance as mobile engagement continues its explosive growth.

"Our customers tell us they need better solutions for managing mobile applications. They started with crash analytics, but as mobile applications have become mainstream, they now want crash, performance, and business analytics all in one easy-to-use solution," said Steve Tack, VP of product management for Compuware's APM business unit.

"As mobile applications become industrialized, operations, development, and business teams are looking for all three dimensions in a single mobile APM solution."
