Shanghai OnStar Optimizes Application Performance With Compuware: Compuware Corp. (Nasdaq:CPWR) announced that Singapore-based Shanghai OnStar has successfully implemented the Compuware Gomez platform to optimize the performance and availability of its business-critical applications and improve service delivery. Shanghai OnStar Telematics Co. Ltd is a joint venture incorporated by General Motors Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. and Shanghai GM that provides a range of in-vehicle safety, security and communication services. This is the first OnStar information service institution outside of North America, delivering key innovative services to the Chinese market. With the successful introduction of OnStar’s services in 2009, the number of subscribers has grown exponentially. Additionally, Shanghai OnStar has launched new services while improving existing ones to keep up with increasing demand. The high demand of OnStar services has taxed the applications infrastructure in the organization, and there was an imperative need to ensure optimized application performance, allowing operations to run reliably at all times. After an in-depth evaluation process, it became evident that the Gomez platform fulfilled Shanghai OnStar’s functional requirements for application performance management (APM). With a unified view of application performance across the entire application delivery chain, Gomez provides Shanghai OnStar with accurate and consistent data that’s essential for informed decision making.
