Applications play a prominent role in the success of most enterprises. In a very real sense, applications are their business.Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst, Network Management
Managing performance in a hybrid world?
Application performance equals business performance and visibility into application performance is critical for organization’s today. But visibility is increasingly difficult to achieve with today’s complex IT environments and applications, which often span traditional data centers, third-party hosting facilities, branch offices, mobile devices, and SaaS and IaaS-based clouds.
To manage the application performance, most IT organizations address performance issues in a “war room” where cross-domain teams come together to troubleshoot problems. Each of these domains – network, applications, infrastructure, end-user experience –has its own set of tools leaving IT with a fragmentary, incomplete view of performance. As a result, IT engineers spend a lot of time analyzing data and metrics but arrive at different and often conflicting conclusions on the cause of performance problems.
