A common complaint amongst our customers is the chasm between the application development team and the IT team on the necessity of Application Monitoring. We consistently see applications rolled into production with inadequate monitoring; application monitoring is an afterthought, once a critical problem occurs. This article will attempt to narrow the gap between development and the IT department, and thus improve the application development life cycle by describing how to use WebSphere® Studio Application Monitor and Tivoli Monitoring for Transaction Performance along with Rational to take an application from development, through test, into production, and back into development for problem resolution. Using these tools will allow development to spend more time on developing new features and new products, and less time fixing code that has already been released into production.
