Getronics PinkRoccade to Provide Monitoring Services for Netherlands-Based Bank Using Nastel Products

New York and London, 7th July, 2005 - Nastel Technologies, market leader in real-time operations and performance monitoring and automation for application integration infrastructures, today announced that Getronics PinkRoccade has purchased AutoPilot/WMQ Enterprise Edition to provide an MQ monitoring managed service to a large Netherlands-based bank.

Getronics PinkRoccade, the largest Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services provider in the Netherlands, purchased AutoPilot/WMQ Enterprise Edition to be able to control and manage MQ servers. They are planning to use the technology to provide MQ monitoring of AIX and z/OS systems for their client, a large Dutch bank serving 4.6 million customers. Getronics PinkRoccade selected Nastel because of its ability to view message logs in the AIX environment and automate the backup of persistent queues on the AIX platform. In addition, Getronics PinkRoccade wanted a total view of its client's MQ environment, including the ability to see a snapshot of all the queues and availability.

AutoPilot/WMQ allows Getronics PinkRoccade to provide true end-to-end, real-time application process monitoring for its client. AutoPilot/WMQ monitors and controls middleware and application interaction to streamline operations, and eliminates the redundancies and bottlenecks that can cost its customers millions in lost revenue.

"Nastel has a track record of providing customers with excellent MQ monitoring products and now with the AutoPilot/WMQ Enterprise Edition we offer the only product set designed expressly to work with the IBM's WebSphere family of products. I am delighted that Getronics PinkRoccade has chosen Nastel and look forward to long and mutually beneficial relationship between our two companies," said David Mavashev, CEO, Nastel Technologies.
