"Everybody today has experienced performance issues within their IT infrastructures," states Shimon Alon, chief executive officer of Precise Software Solutions. "Regardless of how much they have invested in that infrastructure, even if it's millions of dollars, they still have to solve the one most important issue – performance. Precise enables companies of any size to detect and correct performance problems of their IT infrastructures," he adds.

Performance and scalability are areas that impact every information technology (IT) department in the world. Alon explains, "Companies today have new platforms, old platforms, new applications and old applications. Additionally, as you get closer to customers and vendors with your intranet and extranet, you have to get even more performance out of your data center. When you do that, you also have to be able to scale to many users. What I have found," says Alon, "is that when companies experience performance problems, they have no idea why they have the problem. Consequently, they immediately purchase more hardware and software. All they have accomplished by doing that is to create a bigger problem than they had initially. By adding additional hardware and software to an already complex system, they have created more complexity."
