If your IT department is spending too much time troubleshooting and not enough time delivering innovation to your business, consider investing in software monitoring tools. Application monitor tools help organizations overcome the complexity of today’s distributed applications and dynamic service delivery environments. Combining end user monitoring, application monitoring, and synthetic transaction monitoring tools with network and server monitoring capabilities, intelligent integrated APM solutions like Dynatrace offer IT operations teams a complete picture of application and infrastructure health and end user experience.
Integrated software monitoring tools streamline application performance management and help your teams understand application performance from the user’s perspective, making it easier to identify and resolve the issues that most affect your customers and your business.
Software monitoring tools may be more broadly categorized as APM solutions. If you’re not familiar with the term, you may be wondering, what is APM? APM is an acronym for "application performance management" and is used to refer to tools and technologies that enable organizations to monitor application performance and manage the availability, reliability, and speed of both internal-facing and customer-facing software applications. APM has come to encompass various capabilities including user experience monitoring, application topology discovery, and user-defined transaction profiling.
The answer to the question, what is application performance management, varies by vendor and product. All software monitoring tools help detect and discover performance issues, but some tools offer only a limited view of application performance or of the application architecture due to their use of sampling or aggregating of data or emphasis on a core set of technology platforms.
Software monitoring tools that provide only limited visibility into applications will not help organizations uncover the root cause of performance problems, forcing them to rely on guesswork and correlating of data from multiple tools when troubleshooting poor performance. Faced with complex, distributed applications and increasingly hybrid infrastructures, today’s IT operations teams need robust tools offering complete visibility into all components, services, and resources involved in the delivery of applications.
Dynatrace is an integrated digital performance management platform that gives you a 360 degree view of applications and the end user experience. Capturing 100% of transactions, Dynatrace supplies you with gap-free data and end-to-end visibility across the entire application delivery ecosystem.
