I am glad to see many APMdigest sponsors - from all three of our sponsorship levels - featured in EMA VP Dennis Drogseth's latest Radar Report on Advanced Performance Analytics.
I always like to think that our sponsors are among the top innovators leading the industry, and this latest report certainly proves that to be fact.
Here are just a few points made about our sponsors in the report:
"Netuitive 6.0 heralds a landmark moment not only in Netuitive’s own evolution, but in the evolution of APA as a whole. This is in large part because Netuitive, arguably more than any other single vendor, helped to create the APA marketplace more than ten years ago with its self-learning, predictive analytics that not only capture anomalies, but actually clustered anomalous behaviors as they addressed a defined business or technical outcome, from transactional latencies to completed reservations."
"HP is unique in this EMA Radar in its ability to combine two threads – a single analytic overlay as embodied in its recently introduced Service Health Analyzer (SHA) product, and a broader suite solution optimized for HP to participate in all three use cases here with maximum functional impact."
"Based on Site 24x7 and Applications Manager’s exceptional cost effectiveness and well-targeted analytic capabilities, EMA has made ManageEngine a Value Leader in business impact management, where it competed against far more expensive and enterprise-centric solutions."
"Powered in part by its leading-edge capabilities to capture user behaviors via its User Experience Monitoring and Replay, Foglight now supports business-related metrics as well as integrations with business and financial planning systems."
"eG Innovations’ diverse customer base is spread across all sized segments of enterprises as well as service providers, which is a testament to the solution’s flexibility and efficiency."
"Neebula’s ServiceWatch is a true innovator in combining performance-optimized service modeling with cross-domain analytics."
"Zyrion’s Traverse has established itself for its combination of innovation, scalability, breadth of domain support, cohesiveness and its pragmatic approach to service-centric analytics."
An effective breakpoint strategy helps deliver sharp, properly sized images, which are some of the most compelling pieces of content on a web page. Lack of such a strategy can lead to jagged images or ones that take too long to render due to excessive size, potentially reducing the overall effectiveness of web pages — and driving down the quality of the user experience. In this blog, we will explore just how significant image breakpoints are to businesses, and some important device-related factors to consider in image breakpoint decisions to deliver the optimally-sized web image every time ...
As the data generated by organizations grows, APM tools are now required to do a lot more than basic monitoring of metrics. Modern data is often raw and unstructured and requires more advanced methods of analysis. The tools must help dig deep into this data for both forensic analysis and predictive analysis. To extract more accurate and cheaper insights, modern APM tools use Big Data techniques to store, access, and analyze the multi-dimensional data ...
Modern enterprises are generating data at an unprecedented rate but aren't taking advantage of all the data available to them in order to drive real-time, actionable insights. According to a recent study commissioned by Actian, more than half of enterprises today are unable to efficiently manage nor effectively use data to drive decision-making ...
According to a study by Forrester Research, an enhanced UX design can increase the conversion rate by 400%. If UX has become the ultimate arbiter in determining the success or failure of a product or service, let us first understand what UX is all about ...
The requirements of an APM tool are now much more complex than they've ever been. Not only do they need to trace a user transaction across numerous microservices on the same system, but they also need to happen pretty fast ...
Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...
There are some IT organizations that are using DevOps methodology but are wary of getting bogged down in ITSM procedures. But without at least some ITSM controls in place, organizations lose their focus on systematic customer engagement, making it harder for them to scale ...
If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...
Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure. Rather than focus the business around a single location, enterprises are now comprised of a web of remote offices and individuals, where network connectivity has broken down the geographic barriers that in the past limited the availability of talent and resources. Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
