What is APM?

Application performance management (APM) is the practice of detecting and addressing software application issues, so that end users have a quality experience. As applications and platforms have deepened in complexity, the need for APM solutions has become more crucial. The solutions monitor and manage application performance, availability and security throughout the application lifecycle by measuring the response times of users, application components and specific transactions.

Why bother monitoring applications?

The need for a cohesive APM strategy

A poor user experience translates into lost revenue, making an end-to-end APM strategy more important than ever. But monitoring and managing business applications have become more challenging with the advent of hybrid cloud, mobile technology and agile development. Monitor these various technologies separately, and you risk missing critical application issues.
