Trouble With APM
Application performance management (APM) software is becoming an important tool for helping IT managers monitor their assets in both the data center and the cloud. IDC says the APM market will grow to $2.2 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $3.5 billion in 2016.
APM market growth is occurring faster than traditional apps because of the cloud, which is creating a need to monitor apps outside the data center. But despite the growing need to monitor apps, many AMP users are unsatisfied with their product. In addition, users are not taking advantage of all the features APM offers, such as the use of business intelligence or APM to get real-time warnings when there's an application performance problem.
