IBM Cloud APMLooking to optimize monitoring in your software as a service (SaaS) environments? We recently announced a new release of IBM Application Performance Management (APM).

You might have noticed the name change from IBM Performance Management on Cloud to IBM Cloud APM. While not a major change, it does signify our commitment to helping you manage your hybrid cloud environments, whether your workloads are running in Bluemix, AWS, Azure, a private cloud environment or everything in between.

Let me explain the key new features and why we added them.

We previewed this capability at InterConnect and received very positive feedback. You can quickly and easily create dashboards tailored to your specific needs using real-time as well as historical data. Now you can try it out for yourself. With the technology preview included as part of this release, you can create custom dashboards based on Linux and WebSphere Application Server monitoring.

Hybrid monitoring

Applications span many different types of environments. You need to be able to manage them all. It’s much easier to do that when you can manage them all from one tool. IBM Cloud APM monitors your Bluemix Liberty, Node.js, Python and Ruby workloads. It can also bring in metrics from your mainframe components that are monitored using IBM OMEGAMON.

Expanded coverage

We’re continually adding more monitoring coverage to help ensure that you have no blind spots in managing the performance and availability of your applications. New monitoring capabilities in this release includes Active Directory Federation Services, Cassandra, Microsoft Office365, NetApp, RabbitMQ and Siebel.
