Progressive Research : How Monitoring Becomes Management

by Jonah Kowall  |  October 19, 2012  |  1 Comment

In research published last night we explore some of the ways that monitoring can move towards management. Is this particular use case we explore the tie between application performance monitoring (APM) and the application delivery controllers (ADCs) and content distribution networks (CDNs). There are a lot of interesting use cases which mostly are based around increased user expectations of application performance and experiences. Complexity of application and infrastructures are constantly increasing, thus the intelligence and optimization capabilities must be tied together. The research explores the way you can take telemetry data from systems and enhance decision making processes regarding content and application delivery. The research also explores some solutions which may include 1 or more vendors in the side bar including : AppDynamics, Oracle, Riverbed, F5, Microsoft, VMware, Akamai, Cedexis, SiteSpect, Strangeloop, Yottaa, Appnomic, BMC, CA, HP.

Here is the research note for clients, includes much more detail:
