CA Extends Agreement With SAP For Distribution Of CAs Wily Introscope


Provides SAP NetWeaver Customers Leading Application Performance Management Solution

ISLANDIA, N.Y., September 18, 2006 CA (NYSE: CA) today announced that it has extended its agreement with SAP AG to provide SAP NetWeaver customers access to Introscope, the industry-leading application performance management solution from CAs Wily Technology Division. Under the expanded agreement, SAP Solution Manager customers will receive an SAP-specific license to use read-only Introscope capabilities within their enterprises for SAP-developed dashboards and instrumentation.

SAP customers interested in customizing or adding additional Introscope functionalities may license those capabilities directly from CAs Wily Technology Division.

We selected Introscope for SAP Active Global Support because it offers best-in-class Java diagnostics capabilities with the lowest overhead in the industry, said Dr. Uwe Hommel, executive vice president, SAP Active Global Support, SAP AG. Our experience working closely with the Wily team has proven that our rapidly growing SAP NetWeaver customer base can gain significant value from using Introscope to monitor and optimize the performance and availability of their SAP applications.

SAP has used Introscope since January of 2005 to rapidly diagnose and resolve application performance problems in customer deployments, as well as for SAP internal deployments such as SAPs corporate portal and in-house development systems.

Introscope is the industry-leading solution for monitoring and optimizing the performance of complex, mission-critical web applications. It delivers real-time visibility into production environments, enabling IT staff to detect, diagnose and resolve problems before the business is impacted. With Introscope, all application stakeholders gain a common language for application performance, speeding triage and streamlining overall application management.

Both CA and SAP are focused on helping customers deploy web applications on SAP NetWeaver, and to keep them performing optimally, said Dick Williams, senior vice president and general manager of CAs Wily Technology Division. We are pleased to offer all SAP customers access to the Introscope dashboards and metrics SAP AGs Active Global Support has relied upon, without additional license fees.
