The flexibility offered by PaceMaker means it can provide the crucial link between applications and their users to deliver real business value.”

Giblin added: “Financial institutions really appreciate the benefits of continuous monitoring of business processes in reducing risk and improving efficiency and customer satisfaction levels.
