Melbourne, 16 June 2014 - JK Vine Consulting, a Melbourne-based company offering IT specialist services to small to large blue chip companies, announced today that it has joined the Compuware APM (Application Performance Management) Accelerate Partner Program.

The Compuware APM Accelerate Partner Program makes it easy for partners to generate significant, repeatable success by adding APM to existing solution portfolios. Compuware APM is built to manage the complexity of today’s most challenging modern applications including mobile, cloud, big data and SOA. Compuware APM optimises and monitors tens of thousands of applications for more than 5,000 customers, large and small, around the globe.

Customer benefits include faster performance, proactive problem resolution, accelerated time-to-market and reduced application management costs through smarter analytics, advanced APM automation and a unique performance lifecycle foundation. Compuware’s latest APM release combines dynaTrace Real User Monitoring with the Gomez Performance Network to create the industry’s only complete User Experience Management solution.

The Compuware APM suite of solutions will compliment JK Vine Consulting’s services and solutions business which incorporates data management and analytics, IT project delivery, system optimisation and complex testing. These solutions have been deployed to a broad range of Australasian and New Zealand companies and public sector organisations, including Australian Air Express, GE Money, Jetstar, Transurban and Victoria University.

“The new partnership will help both JK Vine Consulting and Compuware address the issues that most businesses face today with optimising their business services online,” said Nick Singh, Chief Executive Officer and founder of JK Vine Consulting. “We have been aware of Compuware for many years now, when initially their products helped service the same issues we faced with optimisation of mainframe delivery. Now, with today’s IT solutions becoming even more complex and the expansion of services to mobile and cloud platforms, optimisation of service is even more relevant.

“The Compuware APM suite of tools coupled with our experience will help solve and optimise delivery of IT applications to our customers, to help them get on with their business.. We are truly excited about the partnership with Compuware and the benefits which it will provide to Australian organisations with their IT optimisation challenges.”
