of complex business applications.
‘The State of APM’ infographic features visual content that details responses from a September 2013 survey of IT professionals managing multiple applications in an enterprise environment. In addition to revealing that end-to-end APM is the ‘gold standard’ in application monitoring, the survey also expressed the critical importance of availability of applications such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and eCommerce. Interestingly, over 43% of IT organizations receive reports of significant performance issues weekly – primarily via end users and not the monitoring tools in place.
While end-to-end APM is desirable, we found that many IT organizations use a combination of tools to monitor their critical applications. Because of this, 74% of IT professionals surveyed express difficulty in correlating data from complex combinations of disparate monitoring tools.
As most vendors of APM tools are aware, expectations for APM are high. IT organizations can’t afford to spend too much on implementation, and a slowdown in performance can negatively impact revenue. Resolve these issues and for an effective APM tool it will come down to Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and ease of use.
