IT Focuses on Application Performance Management

By Samuel Greengard  |  Posted 2015-08-18 Email

Enterprise success increasingly revolves around applications. They are the hub where data, software code and connected technologies meet—and where business value is generated. But today's IT environments require a highly elastic and adaptable foundation in order to accommodate constantly changing conditions. Too often, the underlying elements are only loosely aligned, and that's a situation that leads to subpar performance and sometimes to outright failures. A new report from AppDynamics and Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), "Application Performance Monitoring (APM), 2015," takes an in-depth look at this topic. The organization, which polled IT professionals in the United States and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), found that many organizations are approaching application performance management (APM) tasks in a somewhat haphazard way. Among the problems: too many tools being used in organizations, slow response times when issues occur, a lack of flexibility with tools and processes, and too many siloed systems and processes. Here's a look at some of the key findings from the report.
