Here is the way I like to categorize the areas in which these improvements are seen:
- A comprehensive monitoring capability that gives you a broad, yet contextual perspective on database and application performance, and early warning of emergent problems.
- Better insight into applications, and the ability to stabilize, and improve resource utilization in a non invasive way
- Building performance into the applications early on in the development cycle.
By the way, we also developed some hands on lab material that walks you through these scenarios so that you can explore, and try it out yourself. If you're interested, we'll be offering this as a lab at the Information on Demand Conference in Las Vegas this year. if you are attending this year, and would like to try it out, be sure to look for the Java Acceleration Solution Hands-on Lab (HOL-1276) in the Integrated Data Management Track of IOD.
