Discussion created by MaryGreening on Jul 14, 2014

CA Technologies is pleased to announce the general availability of CA Application Performance Management 9.6 (CA APM 9.6), a release that delivers exciting enhancements that will help you inspire your customers with every application interaction.


As a customer, you already know that CA APM delivers a complete, 360-degree view of the end-user experience by linking business transaction performance to dependent application, network and infrastructure components from mobile to mainframe. With the release of CA APM 9.6, we have enhanced both visibility and triage, helping you discover application performance issues before they impact end-users as well as reduce the frequency and duration of outages.


A closer look at what 9.6 means to you:


Deep Transaction Trace Visibility

This intelligent tracing improves user experience for every transaction by simplifying the transaction trace process.  Using this feature will automatically help you determine which components to include in a transaction trace without having to instrument or configure that component for capture.


Application Triage Map Improvements

The new triage map improvements enable better triage through a new feature called Component Mapping.  Now, you can provide a user-defined name for a common group of backend socket calls (e.g., SAP ABAP) in order to simplify analysis and problem isolation.


Drives Cross-Enterprise APM

CICS transaction traces now include DB2 details to drive Cross Enterprise APM. This enables you to leverage DB2 calls for faster problem resolution. CA SYSVIEW MQ Alerts & Status With CA APM 9.6 IT can now analyze risks & performance issues in MQ impacting end-user experience. This helps you better analyze end-user experience.


If you and/or your colleagues have any further questions about how CA APM 9.6 can help your organization, want to arrange for a presentation or demo, or simply want to obtain additional product information, please feel free to Sandra Tedt at
