Solving the Performance Puzzle: A Simple APM Methodology

The Principles of APM

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the basic principles of APM, and a simple methodology that can be applied to any monitoring initiative or strategic discussion about application performance.

Since the nomenclature used within this space is still very fluid, the need for highlighting some basic methods of operations for the casual user is in order.

The rapid advances in technology are astounding, catapulting Application Performance Management (APM) into a period of intense competition with a multiplicity of vendors and viewpoints. This has created a lot of noise for the consumer when discussing requirements, approaches for implementation, best practices, ROI, etc.

Much like the basic needs for human survival: food, water, clothing, and shelter, APM has four elements that will sustain its existence.  These basic principles of APM can be applied to any monitoring initiative or strategic discussion about application performance.

I invite you to join an on demand webinar on BrightTALK, that will describe A Simple APM Methodology that intuitively fits into the real world of IT and the Business.  I've also posted the presentation on Slide Share for a quick reference on The Principles of APM.
