Drivers to Application Performance Monitoring
When I talk with customers, I like to find out what is driving them to implement an
Application Performance Monitoring
(APM) strategy. The most common reasons I hear are:
A business critical application failed and the business demands change.
There is chronic, unresolved pain with one or more applications that lead people to conclude that the current processes are unsustainable. Either the business or IT demands a change.
A double mission critical (an actual term I heard a customer use!) application is rolling out, and the business is not willing to take any chances on the failure.
wants to provide better alignment/visibility to business-relevant factors rather than relying on just technical data.
What other reasons do you see for implementing an APM strategy?
