The 201% ROI Story: Optimizing performance in a new age of application landscapes

IBM's Application Performance Management solutions are evolving to meet the changing needs of today's application stakeholders. The updated capabilities address new deployment environments such as public cloud, mobile and SaaS; new user roles such as DevOps, Cloud Brokers and individual application owners and even new platforms such as Ruby.


Achieving Customer Satisfaction with Application Performance Management

Today's businesses rely on a wide variety of critical business applications. When these applications perform poorly, customer satisfaction is impacted. When they fail, business grinds to a halt, potentially costing millions of dollars. From complex business applications like SAP, to communications platforms like email servers, to mission critical custom applications - these applications are often distributed across complex infrastructures. Infrastructures increasingly running on heterogenous, virtual environments sometimes include the mainframe platform. Siloed management tools or management tools that only cover one or two platforms are not enough to ensure the performance of critical applications. Agile IT organizations need broad platform coverage; powerful infrastructure and application monitoring; sophisticated reporting and dashboards; and a solution that leverages analytics to help provide actionable insight from all the performance data collected.
