What is Application Performance Management (APM)?

The term APM refers to the management of software application performance to ensure an expected level of service, as measured by performance metrics and user experience monitoring. APM solutions aim to detect and pinpoint application performance issues before real users are impacted. However, not all APM tools are able to follow through on the promise.

Dynatrace delivers by identifying the root cause of problems, saving you from manual data analysis. Fixing, accelerating, and optimizing your applications has never been so easy.
