DETROIT — Compuware Corp. (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, announced that it has published a new white paper titled “Application Performance in Federal Information-Technology Reform.”
The paper explores how application performance management tools can save federal agencies time and money on IT projects with insight into end-user experience.
Unlike private industry, federal agencies do not have the luxury of adding headcount, increasing budgets and expanding IT assets to address under-performing applications. In fact, agencies are increasingly asked to do more with less — all while ensuring transparency, improving citizen services, enhancing performance and increasing accountability.
As a result, a good majority of the “reform initiatives” for federal IT involve data-center consolidation, virtualization or server refreshes to leverage the latest in computing capacity, power savings and reduced cost of ownership. As is the case with many new IT initiatives, these types of federal IT projects run over budget, are behind schedule or fail to deliver promised functionality.
This white paper highlights how federal IT reform is fueling and impacting IT projects; pitfalls to avoid that can derail federal server consolidation IT projects; how APM tools can provide insight into end-user experience and significantly reduce the risks of federal IT projects going awry; and how Compuware’s APM solution can give federal agencies an accurate view into end-user experience, saving time and money, as well as enable agencies to comply with mandated service-level agreements (SLAs) and American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA)-required internal control and accountability objectives.
