Allen Systems Group (ASG) has acquired TRILOGexpert Group, a provider of performance management solutions in the mainframe space.

The combined offering of ASG and TRILOGexpert Group is intended to provide ASG customers with a more holistic approach to application management combining TRILOGexpert’s performance management products with ASG’s advanced testing and debugging technology. Users of the combined technologies will be able to test their applications at the beginning of the lifecycle and manage application performance over time, allowing them to significantly optimize their IT resources.

Headquartered in Baech, Switzerland, and with offices in Germany and the United States, TRILOGexpert provides Fortune 1000 companies with proactive performance tuning and resource optimization for their z/OS systems and applications. Companies can meet their IT goals while reducing the resources spent on manual tuning by up to 90 percent by using TRILOGexpert’s automation capability of its product APC, a powerful automation and data mining platform.

ASG’s flagship solution for application discovery and understanding, ASG-becubic, provides a foundation to align a company’s applications portfolio with its business objectives and offers a view of applications assets across the enterprise, from mainframe to distributed technologies. ASG also offers assistance for mainframe testing with ASG-SmartTeam™, an integrated solution for debugging, fault management, file and data manipulation, and application performance management that links test and production environments. These two products complement the TRILOGexpert suite.

TRILOGexpert’s performance solution combines the automation facility of APC and TriTune, a performance analysis and tuning tool, designed to identify and address application inefficiencies in today’s massively-scaled z/OS-based systems. Together these products automate all measurement tasks and filter large volumes of data for quick identification of high-priority tuning opportunities. TriTune isolates the sources of excessive processing to improve application response and lower CPU consumption. APC for TriTune automates the targeting, measuring, reporting and analyzing of application jobsteps or online regions.

The integrated solution further enhances the ASG Enterprise Automation Management Suite (EAMS), a solution for companies that want to manage their underlying technology and ensure that their IT infrastructure enhances business performance. ASG's EAMS advances the concept of BSM software by using a sophisticated engine to collect information on IT assets and relates those assets to overall business services.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
