Segue Joins New Wily Integration Network.

LEXINGTON, Mass. -- Segue and Wily Will Integrate Offerings to Provide Comprehensive Load Testing and Application Management Solution for Joint Customers

Segue Software, Inc. (NASDAQ-SCM: SEGU), the leader in Software Quality Optimization(TM) (SQO(TM)), today announced it has joined the new Wily Integration Network (WIN). By joining the WIN Network, Segue(R) will be able to integrate SilkPerformer(R), an enterprise load and performance testing solution, with Wily(R) Introscope(R), an application performance management solution. Segue's SQO solutions help companies reduce business risk, ensure the deployment of high quality software and increase return on investment. Together, technology from Segue and Wily can provide organizations with an integrated, comprehensive J2EE(TM) solution and methodology for optimizing the performance of enterprise Java(TM) applications.

With the combination of Segue's SilkPerformer and Wily's Introscope, quality assurance (QA) and development organizations can collaborate to proactively identify and eliminate application performance bottlenecks and optimize the performance of J2EE applications prior to deploying them in a production environment.

Today, there is potential for tremendous business risk and revenue loss through application outages in high-transaction, J2EE environments. J2EE technology adoption is growing; particularly in Web-based, mission-critical enterprise application environments. J2EE is also becoming a leading technology for use in Service Oriented Architectures (SOA). The current trend toward the use of SOAs further increases the need for a robust load testing and root-cause analysis solution to ensure acceptable levels of performance of SOA components and the overall composite application.

"Growth in the development of mission-critical J2EE applications has underscored the criticality for the performance testing of J2EE applications, prior to deployment. Wily and Segue deliver a powerful lifecycle approach for J2EE Software Quality Optimization, offering a solution that can performance test an application from the end-user perspective and also easily diagnose performance-impacting issues - even those deep within the J2EE tier," said Andre Pino, chief marketing officer, Segue Software. "As problems are uncovered, QA and development personnel can collaborate to quickly identify and resolve issues. Swift identification and resolution of performance issues increases staff productivity, resource efficiency and return on investment in all phases of application development and deployment."

Organizations use SilkPerformer to model anticipated user load and uncover performance vulnerabilities, proactively, prior to deployment. Performance testing is critical, as even the most well-designed application typically 'breaks' at relatively low Virtual User (VU) levels in initial performance testing. Once SilkPerformer has uncovered a performance problem, Wily's Introscope solution can quickly capture and report on deep root-cause diagnostics information from within all J2EE application tiers. Whether the performance issue exists in an application, server or connected back-end system, Introscope provides a unified view of application performance enabling information technology (IT) staff to quickly pinpoint the cause of application failures.

Wily's WIN Network provides a framework for partners to verify the technical readiness of solutions that complement or extend the value of Wily Introscope. To join the WIN Network, Segue has agreed to work with Wily to ensure its software will integrate with Introscope to deliver additional value to joint customers. By validating that best-of-breed partners, such as Segue, have solutions compatible with Introscope, the WIN Network ensures joint customers can expand their overall application management capabilities with confidence when selecting a solution to complement Introscope. After completing Wily's verification process, partners will be able to market and promote their solutions using Wily's WIN certified logo.

"Segue is an innovator in the testing market and we are very pleased they are participating in the WIN Network and plan to integrate their enterprise-class load testing solution with Introscope," said Mike Malloy, senior vice president of marketing, Wily Technology. "By working with best-of-breed vendors like Segue, our mutual customers can extend the value of Introscope across the application lifecycle to optimize performance early in the development process and then continue to do so into the production environment."
