BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPNET Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPNT), a leading provider of solutions for managing applications and networks, this week announced AppDNA Xpert™, a new breakthrough solution for application discovery and mapping. The announcement was made at OPNETWORK, OPNET's annual technology conference being held in Washington D.C., August 30 to September 2.

AppDNA Xpert mines data from OPNET's application performance management suite, leveraging proprietary analytics to automatically create a detailed map of the application footprint.

Alain Cohen, OPNET President and CTO, stated, "In most IT environments, application infrastructures grow rapidly and in an organic fashion as a result of business pressure, and the recurring insertion of new technologies. As a result, the actual infrastructure components utilized by an application and the dependencies among application assets are often not precisely known by IT organizations. This is a significant issue for IT service management because any one of these components can impact the performance or availability of an application. AppDNA Xpert provides an integrated view of an end-to-end service that encompasses application and infrastructure components. With our detailed understanding of application internals, application traffic, and network infrastructure, OPNET is uniquely positioned to provide a robust solution to this longstanding problem."

OPNET demonstrated AppDNA Xpert for conference attendees. OPNETWORK attracts thought leaders from industry, government, and academic communities from all over the world to advance best practices for IT Service Assurance. Approximately 1,800 IT professionals from 34 countries registered for the event, which features more than 550 hours of presentations and hands-on training. Keynote speakers include Scott Chin, Chief Enterprise Architect for Major League Baseball and David Williams, Research VP with Garner, Inc. In addition, more than 50 customer case studies from a broad range of industries were presented.

Availability

AppDNA Xpert will be available in the second calendar quarter of 2011 from OPNET.
