In recent years, we’ve seen a shift in the IT landscape from siloed teams using disparate monitoring tools to increasing collaboration among teams sharing unified monitoring toolsets. One critical unifying aspect of service delivery is the end user experience—the fundamental measure of service quality today.
End user experience monitoring tools provide IT and business leaders with a unified view of service performance—performance from the perspective of end users. When combined with software analytics tools, end user experience monitoring tools offer application stakeholders deep insight into application performance, application usage patterns, and user behavior, allowing them to prioritize and resolve issues affecting actual users.
End user experience monitoring tools are used to track and monitor synthetic or real user sessions and to collect and analyze user experience metrics such as response time and failure rate. End user experience monitoring tools enable you to quantitatively understand what users are actually experiencing or may experience when they visit your website, use your mobile app, or work with some other type of application. They allow you to compare application performance across geographies, browsers, browser versions, app versions, platforms, and devices—to detect errors and failures and identify the root cause of performance degradation or variations in the user experience.
There are four types of end user performance monitoring tools commonly used today, namely:
