Why do you use MongoDB for your applications? It’s a NoSQL database, which makes it great for unstructured data and an ideal solution to major problems. It’s also touted as ideal for mobile and social apps, product catalogs, content management, reference data, and many other applications. Perhaps you’re simply writing a Node.js app and it’s the only logical database to use.
But if you’re like most application developers, you chose MongoDB because you need a very reliable solution in an unstable environment. Your app likely lives on the cloud, your development cycles need to keep getting faster, your data is growing exponentially, and your database needs to scale… MongoDB and its sharding, replicaSets, and schema-less approach to managing your data is simply a great solution for most consumer-facing apps, because your top priority needs to be constantly delivering great value to your customers.
The same drive that pushed you to MongoDB in the first place is what makes monitoring your application an absolute necessity.
The simple truth is, for today’s businesses applications can never go down. In the modern app, user experience is king. It can make the difference between a 1-star rating and a 5-star rating and often spells the success and failure of many great ideas. If your application is slow, unresponsive, keeps crashing, or otherwise doesn’t work the way your end users expect it to, they will go somewhere else.
In comes IBM Performance Management. It’s a simple monitoring tool for your applications and infrastructures that makes sure all the pieces (like MongoDB) that you pulled together to have the cheapest, fastest, most scalable and dynamic app possible work like they are supposed to. Do you really understand how your end users are experiencing your app? If your app always runs slow during the checkout process, are you aware of it? IBM Performance Management can provide the visibility and control over your application that you need to increase end user satisfaction.
The customer success stories speak for themselves. Whether by getting to the root cause of performance problems 90% faster, improving the availability of applications by 60-90%, or reducing the length of outages by 50% or more, IBM Performance Management has made businesses more responsive than ever before to their end users’ needs. You can find problems BEFORE you ever reach production, keep developers working on code and not spending hours chasing performance issues, know how a release will affect your users ahead of go-live, and if and when a problem does occur immediately see where it is, who is affected, and what is causing it.
End user experience is at the head of priorities for a successful business. Leverage a market-leading application performance management solution today, because you simply can’t afford NOT to.
