CA World 2007: CA’s integration of Wily is bearing fruit - three integrated products will be available from this summer and the department has gained 150 new customers and increased headcount by 81 per cent.

The three products allow IT departments to effectively monitor how web applications are performing for users and automates the collection and distribution of reports of problems.
