Compuware buys dynaTrace for US$256 million

The deal will bolster Compuware's Gomez platform

Compuware announced Wednesday it has purchased application performance monitoring vendor dynaTrace for US$256 million in cash, a move that builds upon its 2009 acquisition of Gomez and places it in closer competition with rivals such as CA Technologies and BMC.

Earlier this year, Compuware rebranded its APM tools under the Gomez name, jettisoning the Vantage brand. Along with dynaTrace's technology, Compuware customers will now have the ability to track application performance throughout the development, testing and production lifecycle, according to a statement.

In the last category, customers will gain "unmatched" application performance monitoring, from back-end servers to end-users' browsers and every step in between, according to Compuware. That job has become more complex given the rise of public and private cloud services, as well as an explosion in mobile device usage.

DynaTrace has more than 400 customers, including Sony, Linkedin and Thomson Reuters, according to a statement.

Compuware has "no major technology or personnel changes planned" for dynaTrace, it adds.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
