What is application performance management (APM (News - Alert)) and why is it so important? Broadly, it’s all about monitoring and managing the performance of software applications, how fast data flows through the network and how quickly problems can be identified and resolved.
Compuware (News - Alert) Corporation, the technology performance company, has raised the bar for APM by announcing a solution delivered as-a-service: Compuware APMaaS, which has been built to manage the complexity of today’s most challenging modern applications.
In addition, it will also be releasing advanced security settings with higher encryption standards. By implementing a Web application firewall platform from an industry leading security vendor, Compuware adds an extra layer of protection to its APMaaS platform. In deference to customer demand, this helps the company handle performance metrics in the most secured manner.
“For the thousands of customers who use Compuware’s APMaaS solution daily, the reliability of our platform is not negotiable,” said Mike Maberry, director of network operations for Compuware’s APM business unit.
In contrast to traditional APM solutions that are heavy, difficult and reactive, Compuware APM is light, smart and proactive. Those deploying the solution are expected to enjoy faster performance, proactive problem resolution, accelerated time-to-market and reduced application management costs.
Organizations using Compuware APMaaS can manage end-user experience, application performance and service levels within a single on-demand platform. Hence, at any given time, it can be seen how much time the servers, network, cloud, and browsers contribute to overall transaction performance for every user, every time.
“Our customers rely so much on us for the management of their Web operations; it is our ongoing commitment to provide them with the richest and most robust APM solutions that address their most pressing business challenges,” said Maberry.
Compuware says its APMaaS optimizes and monitors tens of thousands of applications for more than 5,000 customers, large and small, around the globe through smarter analytics, advanced APM automation and a unique performance lifecycle foundation.
