As part of our continued efforts to be the industry-leading source of news, discussion and information about Application Performance Management, we’re making a few changes to the about:performance blog.

Compuware’s Gomez and dynaTrace product lines are now fully integrated, and it’s time for us to combine our blogs as well. That’s why at the end of November we’ll be updating and rebranding about:performance, to include topics and content that are relevant right across the whole range of Compuware APM’s offering.

Don’t worry: none of the topics or articles you’ve got used to reading over the past few years are going to disappear!

Instead, we’re going to broaden the scope of the blog to include more posts about Network Performance Management (NPM) convergence, user experience, and the business impact of APM.

To whet your appetite, here are a few examples of the type of post that will start appearing on about:performance shortly:
