CA Technologies buys Watchmouse for cloud monitoring

The move further builds out CA's array of application monitoring tools

CA Technologies is purchasing WatchMouse, a maker of SaaS-based tools for monitoring mobile and on-demand applications, the company announced Friday. Terms were not disclosed.

The WatchMouse technology is sold via subscription and will be rolled into CA's portfolio of application monitoring tools. It will serve as a lower-cost, subscription-based alternative for customers who want to track application performance but don't need an extensive suite of capabilities, CA said.

WatchMouse's software is backed by a network of roughly 60 monitoring stations in 40 countries, providing real-time information about application behavior, according to a statement.

The Netherlands company's customers include ING, Citibank, AT&T, Siemens and Orange.

CA Technologies competes in the application monitoring market with the likes of BMC, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Compuware. Earlier this month, Compuware increased its investment in the market, announcing the purchase of DynaTrace for US$256 million.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
