Designed for Mission Critical Applications, Precise automates QoS management on physical, virtual and hybrid infrastructure. Customers use Precise to manage and improve transaction processing time, reduce resolution time of performance incidents, and prevent transaction performance loss incidents altogether. Precise provides application and transaction QoS information to the key IT stakeholders through multiple role views - based on a federated PMDB (Performance Management Database).

VocaLink uses Precise to keep Oracle and Java optimal.
"...90% of UK salaries are paid through this system, VocaLink uses Precise to measure the length of time it takes to handle Bacs security checks."
Report Manager is a reporting tool in Precise that queries the Performance Management Database and displays the results in reports that are generated on a scheduled basis or on demand. See the webinar.
