Allen Systems Group (ASG) Acquires TRILOGexpert Group

Integrated Product Portfolio Enables Customers to Holistically Manage the Performance of their Application and Optimize IT Resources

NAPLES, Fla.--()--Allen Systems Group (ASG) announced today that it has acquired TRILOGexpert Group, a leading provider of performance management solutions in the mainframe space. The combined offering of ASG and TRILOGexpert Group will provide ASG customers a more holistic approach to application management combining two market-leading solutions, TRILOGexpert’s performance management products with ASG’s advanced testing and debugging technology. Users of the combined technologies will be able to test their applications at the beginning of the lifecycle and manage application performance over time, allowing them to significantly optimize their IT resources.

“At ASG we continuously strive to optimize our customers’ business services by managing applications, information and infrastructure. This includes managing application behavior through the entire lifecycle,” said Arthur Allen, president and chief executive officer at ASG. “By integrating TRILOGexpert’s solutions in our portfolio, we can help companies assure optimized performance of their applications from code development and testing to production and support environments.”

Headquartered in Baech, Switzerland, and with offices in Germany and the United States, TRILOGexpert provides Fortune® 1000 companies with proactive performance tuning and resource optimization for their z/OS systems and applications. Companies can meet their IT goals while reducing the resources spent on manual tuning by up to 90 percent by using TRILOGexpert’s automation capability of its product APC™, a powerful automation and data mining platform.

“Today’s mainframe clients want a compelling problem determination solution,” said Markus Bauer, chief executive officer at TRILOGexpert. “The complementary strengths of the testing and debugging products from ASG with the performance tuning suite from TRILOGexpert bring a holistic view of application lifecycle behavior and offer an unrivalled, global solution in the marketplace.”

ASG’s flagship solution for application discovery and understanding, ASG-becubic™, provides a foundation to align a company’s applications portfolio with its business objectives and offers a view of applications assets across the enterprise, from mainframe to distributed technologies. ASG also offers assistance for mainframe testing with ASG-SmartTeam™, an integrated solution for debugging, fault management, file and data manipulation, and application performance management that links test and production environments. These two products provide a great complement to the TRILOGexpert suite.

TRILOGexpert’s performance solution combines the automation facility of APC and TriTune®, a market-leading performance analysis and tuning tool, designed to identify and address application inefficiencies in today’s massively-scaled z/OS-based systems. Together these products automate all measurement tasks and filter large volumes of data for quick identification of high-priority tuning opportunities. TriTune isolates the sources of excessive processing to improve application response and lower CPU consumption. APC for TriTune automates the targeting, measuring, reporting and analyzing of application jobsteps or online regions.

The integrated solution further enhances the ASG Enterprise Automation Management Suite (EAMS), a solution for companies that want to manage their underlying technology and ensure that their IT infrastructure enhances business performance. ASG's EAMS advances the concept of Business Service Management (BSM) software by using a sophisticated engine to collect information on IT assets and relates those assets to overall business services.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
