How IoT Redefines Application & Infrastructure Monitoring – A Guest Commentary in the Ipswitch Network Monitor Blog
The primary purpose of initiating an Internet of Things (IoT) strategy is to capture data from a broader population of product endpoints. As a result, IoT deployments are also creating a new set of application performance management (APM) and infrastructure monitoring requirements.
Historically, traditional APM and infrastructure monitoring solutions were designed to track the behavior of a relatively static population of business applications and systems supporting universally recognized business processes. Now, the APM and infrastructure monitoring function is becoming more complicated in the rapidly expanding world of IoT.
Click here to read THINKstrategies’ views about these new challenges and how a new generation of APM and infrastructure monitoring solutions are addressing these issues in the Ipswitch blog.
IoT Ultimate Test for APM: Monitoring Infinite Microservices Demands New Approach to APM – A Guest Commentary in APMdigest
Last December, my APMdigest prediction for 2015 was,
“The advent of the “Internet of Things” (IoT) will elevate the importance of implementing powerful, easy-to-use and cost-effective APM (Application Performance Management) solutions as a rapidly expanding universe of end-points are connected by software-enabled sensors and systems. The new generation of APM solutions will have to contend with an exponentially greater number of connections, transactions and data points. The APM solutions will also have to span Cloud and on-premise applications which will be linked together in the IoT environment. The task of implementing and administering the APM solutions will increasingly be performed by highly specialized, third-party service providers.”
Less than halfway through the new year and we’re seeing the market activity around IoT opportunities accelerate. Not only are the number of ‘things’ currently and expected to be connected growing exponentially, but the types of … Read More »
How to Select the Right Provider to Optimize Application Performance – A Whitepaper Published on Behalf of PTC
Businesses of all sizes across nearly every industry are racing to adopt new strategies and solutions to achieve corporate objectives in the face of unprecedented market and competitive pressures.
In this context, moving business applications and processes to the cloud has become an increasingly common approach to lower costs and address changing business requirements.
Although there are numerous cloud services providers available, many organizations struggle to select the right partner and to procure, deploy, and administer the right cloud services to meet their application management needs.
To improve their chances of success, THINKstrategies has seen many business and IT decision-makers gravitate toward cloud services organizations that can provide not only the infrastructure functionality they need, but also a full lifecycle of application management services.
This more integrated approach to cloud services can enable organizations to achieve greater application reliability, security, and performance to satisfy … Read More »
APMdigest is the best online publication focused on application performance management (APM), looking at everything from analytics to Cloud-based alternatives to traditional on-premise management systems. I’ve been a contributor to the publication for about a year and it has been a great supporter of our Cloud Innovators Summit series of executive forums, including the upcoming Cloud Channel Summit on November 5 in Mountain View, CA. APMdigest recently gave me an opportunity to provide THINKstrategies’ perspectives regarding the latest trends in Cloud management.
