"Compuware APM has been on our radar for a long time now for stirring a revolution in big data, and we are happy to showcase them this year thanks to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch technology driven solutions," said Harvi Sachar, Publisher & Founder, CIO Review. "Compuware APM for Big Data continued to break new ground this past year, benefiting its customers around the globe. We're pleased to have them featured on our top companies list."

As companies deploy big data to better capture customer interactions and make real-time decisions, they need to ensure both availability and performance of their big data deployments on a continuous basis. The faster insights are unlocked, the sooner they can deliver value to customers. This new paradigm is making modern APM an integral part of big data applications and a key driver helping organizations adapt to the new, dynamic nature of business operations.

Compuware APM for Big Data was created to address these challenges by helping organizations take control and efficiently manage their big data environments. Benefits of Compuware APM for Big Data include:

  • Making teams smarter and reducing the costs of running Hadoop applications by quickly detecting bottlenecks and the root-cause of issues, speeding big data analytics, and eliminating wasted hours spent collecting and sifting through thousands of logs files;
  • Helping businesses make the right big data investments and purchasing decisions by profiling workloads and determining the optimized hardware configuration;
  • Tracking cluster usage on a per-user basis, giving operations the insight needed to appropriately charge their stakeholders for resources consumed and enforce SLAs critical to business processes; and
  • Reducing risk when extending mission-critical systems with NoSQL databases such as HBase, Cassandra, and MongoDB, by providing deep visibility into both application behavior and database dependencies as well as identifying root cause of performance issues in a single click.

"We are honored to be recognized once again for our leadership in big data, this time by CIO Review Magazine," said John Van Siclen, General Manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "While we are proud of our accomplishments to date, our commitment to helping big data teams improve performance, gain control, lower costs and win the analytics race will never end. Whether companies are deep into big data strategies and deployments or are just entering the picture, we are here to help."

CIO Review's annual 100 Most Promising Big Data Companies list was compiled by a panel of experts including CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and members of the magazine's editorial board.
