Digital Transformation requires more than just the latest technology, it's a mindset that iterative change is on the way and should be embraced. This also requires us to factor in the people and process parts of the equation and find ways to measure the end-user-experience (EUE). One way to do this is to sponsor an Application Performance Monitoring (APM) initiative that can provide visibility to the business, help communicate the progress, and highlight the impacts to the organization. ...

In the course of researching, documenting and advising on user experience management needs and directions for more than a decade, I've found myself waging a quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) war with several industry assumptions. Chief among these is the notion that user experience management (UEM) is purely a subset of application performance management (APM). This APM-centricity misses some of UEM's most critical value points, and in a basic sense fails to recognize what UEM is truly about ...

The deluge of data created by IT infrastructures that generate data every second often takes great investments of time to make sense of. Leveraging AI or machine learning technologies in Application Performance Management (APM) simplifies the complex IT systems, automates application-environment discovery and makes for smarter decisions faster with proactive problem resolution. The benefits of AI-driven APM solutions seem obvious but raise important questions around AI technologies and its greater impact ...

Code working perfectly doesn't matter much if apps aren't reaching customers, or are negatively impacted by network latency or outages. All the customer cares about is how they are enjoying an app. To effectively guarantee application availability and usage satisfaction, DevOps teams need to leverage three important application assurance data sets into their delivery automation logic ...

As user performance demands have skyrocketed in recent years, organizations have expanded their infrastructures. The volume of performance monitoring information and alerts creates a confusing cacophony, like being at a party and trying to listen to ten conversations at once. This kind of environment could be prime for alert fatigue – issues being raised but ignored due to burnout. This is complete insanity in the 21st century. A new approach to managing IT alerts and issues raised through performance monitoring is needed ...

We live in a world of massively interconnected applications and supply chains. In recent years, the use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) has largely replaced technologies such as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and custom-written programs for development of new system integrations. APIs are now the de facto industry standard for integrating data and/or functionality across diverse application ecosystems. The speed and breadth with which API ecosystems have proliferated is impacting APM in a big way ...

According to most industry perceptions, application performance management (APM) and application portfolio management (APM) might seem to be worlds apart — or at best connected by a very thin thread. In this blog, I'd like to highlight three areas that are bridging the APM-to-APM divide: digital experience management, application discovery and dependency mapping (ADDM), and agile/DevOps lifecycle planning ...
