Last week I published a note with my colleague Tomas Murphy who covers the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) technologies, the note was about the intersection of Application Performance Monitoring(APM) and ALM. Although most of the APM buyers and end users I speak with come from an IT Operations or even an application support type role, I do speak to development organizations and quality assurance departments looking at these tools. When it comes to these organizational areas and even somewhat with application support the fit between the application lifecycle and proper measurement of performance before and after the release process is critical. This note talks about this intersection and why its critical, especially as we move towards agile processes and the implementation of DevOps within the release and support processes.
Have a look at the research:
Upcoming research will include how to dig out of event overload (ECA), as well as a vendor landscape for Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) and traffic aggregation vendors.
