Network performance management tools can drive operational efficiency and improve network
uptime, but many network managers haven’t adopted such tools. The potential benefits of a
performance management tool are substantial, but network managers must make a business
case for such investment. This white paper reveals why network operations teams should invest
in network performance management solutions, and how they can justify to IT management and
CIOs that the tool will deliver a substantial return on investment, along with improving IT’s ability to
support business goals.
As enterprises become more distributed and migrate applications to the cloud, they will need to diversify
their network performance management solutions. In particular, the network operations team will need to
complement its packet-based monitoring tools with active test monitoring solutions to enhance visibility into
the cloud and help enterprises scale monitoring gracefully and cost-effectively.

Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage —driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernize their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. It is no coincidence that the largest hyperscale cloud providers rely on all-flash storage solutions as their storage foundation.
Pure Storage all-flash storage arrays provide enterprise customers with a safe, secure and smooth path to the all-flash cloud. You can take the journey in stages, starting small with a single application or two, and then adding more applications through consolidation and virtualization. You can also implement multiple stages at once.

Application performance management (APM) is an IT discipline that continues to evolve as new technologies appear. The new wave of microservices architecture and containerization has led to what is referred to as cloud-native development, and this approach has one of the fastest adoption rates of any new technology we have witnessed. With cloud-native environments there is the need to monitor and manage these new types of applications, but the challenge is that they are quite different from traditional monolithic systems.
This report delves into what the differences are, how these affect how they are monitored, and how a new generation of vendors have stepped up and introduced novel solutions to meet these challenges. We also examine the incumbent leaders in the APM market that have transformed their solutions to expand and cover cloud-native environments.
Today, as IT departments struggle to design and implement solutions capable of managing exponential data growth with strict requirements for application scale and performance, many
of them are turning to in-memory data grids (IMDGs).
Ovum takes a representative group, across new to established leading vendors and provides a SWOT analysis of their solutions, and conducted a comprehensive features assessment with the results summarized in the Ovum APM Rainbow Map.
In today's economy, businesses need to be always-on. In this webcast featuring guest speaker IDC Research Vice President, Mary Johnson Turner, we'll uncover how 2012's biggest trends are impacting Application Performance Management (APM).
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: The learning management system is dead. The LMS is mentioned in learning the same way that people talk about applicant tracking systems in recruiting and performance evaluation solutions in talent management. They’re the technologies people love to hate. The solutions people want to love? Many times, these are the so-called “next-generation solutions.”
Different finance departments want different financial solutions. Some may simply require financial reporting while, at the other end of the spectrum, some will want a comprehensive performance management solution. This paper compares different approaches to these choices that are available for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) environments. The offerings in this space range from simple reporting tools to complete, integrated solutions. While noting the value that targeted toolsets provide, a survey of the available offerings suggests that most organisations are better served by implementing a holistic, integrated approach rather than a hybrid, multivendor approach.
Don’t settle. Forward-thinking finance professionals know that there is a better way. Though BI tools have provided visibility to data, they have in fact failed to provide direct access to enterprise information. However, evolution does not stop there: Next-gen corporate performance management solutions are among us and promise to deliver interconnected, flexible, and realtime data access. Agility achieved.
