Making Application Performance Management SimpleWith enough other things to worry about in your new business, you might wrap your head around Application Performance Management (APM).

Why APM?

As long as IT is the nervous system of any business, you need the tools to monitor and manage how your software applications work. By the time your business is operating comfortably, it has amassed a bunch of software applications to run its many processes.

You may depend on word processing while your partner needs spreadsheets. But, as you drill down in what and how the company operates, your applications start to multiply in number and complexity.

Someone or something must notice, report, and remediate disruptions, quirks, or misfires. When your IT ops are juggling cloud, streaming, web-enabled, and standalone applications, you can have problems. And, that’s where APM comes into play.

According to Computer Weekly, “APM looks at how fast transactions are completed for an end user or how fast information is delivered to the end user, via a particular network or web services infrastructure.

APM will also monitor the application’s runtime architecture. If there are problems, you need to find them, look at them, and fix them. And, to do fix them, you have to know why they are not working. That requires you to find out what an application is doing at a code level, so you can figure out what’s being used, what’s running slow, and what’s in the way.

Because APM can visualize and display this traffic in real-time, you can get a life dynamic showing memory and CPU functions. And, with professional IT assistance, you can customize the metrics that prove most valuable to you and your teams.
