CICS Transaction Server (TS) for z/OS V5.1 and their System Z operating
system, adding to the company's already robust portfolio of real-time
performance monitoring solutions, both distributed and mainframe.
Nastel has long provided support for the mainframe as part of its
middleware-centric application performance monitoring solution,
AutoPilot®, whose cross-platform capabilities help enterprises
rationalize their monitoring in order to contain costs.

visibility provides IT with the necessary detail to resolve problems
rapidly at the same time delivering the business real-time status of
their milestone," said Charles Rich, vice president of Product
