Speaker: Peter Sevcik, NetForecast
With over 30 application performance management (APM) tool vendors offering scores of products, buyers face hundreds of confusing choices. Compounding the problem, the lack of a common taxonomy, or standard APM nomenclature, makes cross-vendor product comparisons especially challenging.
To address this challenge, NetForecast has developed an APM tools framework anyone can use to define APM requirements and map them to vendor offerings. The APM framework is a comprehensive description of application management functions and features. Building on essential infrastructure management concepts, it provides a common nomenclature that makes it easy to compare APM tools. The framework also places Apdex elements in their appropriate contexts.
Good performance is delivered with tools that directly support APM processes and best practices. The APM framework lets you describe and prioritize the functions and features appropriate for your environment, and helps guide your APM strategy.
- Technique: How performance is measured
- Location: Where performance is measured
- Data: What information is gathered
- Analysis: Making the data useful
- Process: How the tool supports operations
- Business: How the tool integrates with the business
