Breaking down the Silos by simplifying application monitoring
One of the biggest drawbacks in IT operations is that we work in silos , with loads of attempts made to connect functional departments before but it seems like very little progress has been made.

It is fascinating to look at how Application Performance Management (APM) has evolved over the past decade. At one point, gathering the performance data was a challenge itself. Then the shift was to Data Warehouse, using Business Intelligence (BI) to analyze the data. Today, with the data explosion from various domains, it is imperative that we run some real Analytics in this space to complement the insights obtained from BI. Traditionally data mining was active in this space – but it was limited to a small subset of consumers who understood... [More]
