Application performance management (APM) tools allow enterprises to proactively manage their investments in bandwidth and the business-critical applications used every day. An application performance management solution is recognized as an essential component of WAN optimization-techniques that help businesses get the best possible performance from existing networks. However, building a business case for an application performance management solution requires more than a belief in its benefits. It requires some data to quantify the value of a bottom-line result. This white paper reviews ten business scenarios in which application performance management solutions are used to monitor applications across the WAN deliver a quantifiable Return on Investment (ROI). Example cases and calculations are provided for each scenario, describing how companies have quantified the value of an APM solution in that area.

The principle “what gets measured gets managed” dictates that by simply examining an activity, you can get a handle on it and find ways to improve it. However, not all metrics are created equal—meaning not all things that can be measured will give you the ability to proactively take action in a timely manner. Case in point: If you measure the effectiveness of your customer success and recurring revenue growth programs based only on retention, churn, renewal or attrition rates, then you have a problem. These are very important metrics, and they are definitely key to your business. The problem is that these metrics can only tell you if you have a problem, which you often discover only after it is too late to affect real change.

If you’re like most developers, you spend about two-thirds of your time building and the rest of your time learning. Sometimes your research is proactive, based on personal interest or a desire to maintain your skills, but more likely it’s out of necessity—learning what you need to tackle your next big project. Not long ago, new projects assumed an on-premises or hosted approach, forcing you to spend considerable time on essential requirements like scalability, availability, and security. Today, you still must deliver on those essentials, but the apps you’re building need to do a lot more: support millions of users, span the globe, make sense of petabytes of data, and delight users in new ways. Cloud services not only deliver “built-in” scalability and availability, but also provide an unprecedented range of prebuilt functionality for driving innovation into your apps—ready to evaluate for your next project, without your having to worry about physical infrastructure and the related ove
