Your IT environment is a busy place, and network traffic is on the increase across industries. The SAP Extended Diagnostics application by CA Wily provides a single platform to help you monitor complex IT environments with both SAP and non-SAP software. You gain automatic 24x7 oversight to detect and resolve issues before they lower service levels and user productivity. That means you can reduce downtime, mitigate risk, improve productivity, and enhance employee and customer satisfaction.

The SAP Extended Diagnostics application by CA Wily gives you a single platform for monitoring heterogeneous IT environments. It allows executives, line of business managers, operations personnel, system administrators, quality assurance personnel, and software developers to have a shared process for seeing that applications perform as designed. It helps you identify impending issues and find the right person to resolve them and that reduces unscheduled downtime while raising user satisfaction.
