What is the purpose of application performance management?

APM ensures high performance for your software. Constant monitoring of your system allows you to manage the performance and availability of software applications. This leads to quick response times, improved computing processes and satisfied customers. Especially digital end user experience is one of the main goals when dealing with real user interactions and business transactions. Dynatrace application performance management saves the effort of interpreting such dependent events on your own and directs you to the component that might cause performance issues or problems for your customers. Fixing, accelerating, and optimizing your servers and software applications has never been so easy.

Better understand customer experience

Application performance management allows you to receive full-stack observation and alerting at any time. Monitoring your entire IT infrastructure is a major aspect for finding problems at code, application, service or host level. This helps to understand customers better, allows to run applications at their maximum of performance, and leads to quick findings regarding potential problems. Automatic discovery and configuration makes it possible to easily isolate bottlenecks with low amounts of workforce.

What is application performance management?

Application Performance Management in its simplest terms is what practitioners use to ensure consistent availability, performance, and response times to applications.

APM is a major aspect in the area of information technology. With focus on software application performance and the aim of high quality end-user experience, APM is an analytic and strategic way to optimize digital businesses. APM allows to gain immediate insights into problems with a brief overview of impacted applications, user actions and affected components.

Using AI algorithms and comprehensive data analytics, the Dynatrace application monitoring solution detects which components are causing problems. Dynatrace does this by collecting all required data using proprietary agent technology that pulls performance data from the whole stack: cloud instances, hosts, processes, and individual services. This way deep data analytics and detection of causal relationships between performance data points and millions of dependencies can be investigated in seconds. Summed up application performance management contains aspects like real user monitoring, synthetic monitoring, deep monitoring as well as deep dive analytics. Further system and service observation and optimization is given with APM.
