Compuware Corporation on Wednesday announced a new generation performance analytics solution that raises the intelligence of software-as-a-service (SaaS) application performance management (APM).

This data is collected from the Compuware Gomez Performance Monitoring Network of more than 150,000 test locations and delivers information on specific outages including the scope, duration and probable cause of the event - all visualized in real-time.
