iTKO LISA, dynaTrace Partner for Federated SOA Testing

Offers Complete Software Visibility

iTKO LISA, the provider of testing, validation and virtualization solutions for SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) and enterprise software, and dynaTrace software, the provider of lifecycle application performance management for complex SOA-based systems, announce a combined solution that offers defense customers complete visibility into the quality and reliability of key software applications.

LISA allows IT teams to quickly generate events and transactions that appear within the dynaTrace performance management framework, without the need to code a test harness. LISA can also become an Agent that listens to detailed performance metrics coming from dynaTrace - making it an integral part of the enterprise's application management process.

"The ability to provide total visibility, metrics and data sharing between dynaTrace and the LISA SOA testing framework offers the defense IT community a way to ensure the highest service levels of their critical applications," said Chris Dworkin, VP of Solution Architecture for iTKO. "The ability to ‘cause the cause' within the application being monitored and share data in the same context literally ties together the effects being viewed, with the root cause as generated by the LISA testing environment."

"With the complexity of SOA-based systems, our customers demand real-time root-cause analysis across tiers," said dynaTrace CTO Bernd Greifeneder. "We can have LISA model the end-to-end workflows, drive user behaviors and provide failure reporting at the component level. dynaTrace integration enables users to pinpoint the root cause of problems in synthetic transactions down to the code - whether Java, .NET or a hybrid of both - and supply rich real-time data for collection into the reporting framework."

Events such as performance failures or boundary conditions within dynaTrace solutions can trigger test workflow execution within LISA, including creating user notifications or error reporting workflows within LISA's Continuous Validation Service. In turn, LISA can also be executed and run from within dynaTrace to provide metrics on the overall quality and functional performance of the software under test over a time period.
