Today’s IT departments are running more applications to more users than ever before from a variety of origins – web apps, cloud apps, client-server apps … the list goes on. While a complex and often times confusing environment, applications are the backbone of business, their support is paramount. Yet too many IT teams are realizing how difficult this is – and not to mention expensive and time-consuming.
Unfortunately, application performance has surpassed the “quality issue” stage and turned into a “revenue-impacting” issue. A recent Enterprise Management Associates research paper reported that an hour of application downtime can cost businesses anywhere between $100,000 and $500,000. Another report estimates downtime incidents to cost upwards of $1,500,000. Are you ready to risk this loss?
This whitepaper takes a deep dive into the impact application performance has both on your IT department and business to help you understand the factors driving Application Performance Management (APM) adoption. In addition, uncover the major role APM can play in increasing application visibility, support, speed, and accuracy.
