As enterprises have embraced IT trends like cloud computing and virtualization, their operational needs have evolved to make application performance more important than ever before. But operating applications at peak performance is challenging in the cloud. That's why many enterprise IT departments now have Applications Operations groups tasked with ensuring that applications run efficiently across these complex IT stacks. But, most tools designed to address these application performance management (APM) issues were never designed for this dynamic environment. To achieve smooth delivery of applications at all times, Applications Operations groups need APM solutions that can give them insight and analytics to manage their apps. This SlashGuide gives IT managers a scorecard to identify APM solutions that will deliver more efficient application performance.
