Welcome to the sweet life with unified infrastructure, application and network performance management
What if mobile phone developers never went beyond voice capabilities? You couldn’t send text messages or e-mails, post a Tweet or play Words with Friends (insert your favorite Alec Baldwin joke here).
What if your television never upgraded to high definition? I can’t even watch a show that isn’t broadcast in HD (except The Rosie Show on OWN).
What if Ben & Jerry never went beyond vanilla, chocolate and strawberry? Life just wouldn’t be as sweet.
Even worse, what if your application performance management (APM) vendor forced you to type in “Alt-Tab” to view how the hybrid-cloud infrastructure is affecting your end users and critical business services?
This week, CA Technologies ushered in a new era of APM by delivering the industry’s first and only unified application, infrastructure and network performance solution. This next-generation APM solution sets a new standard by delivering a complete, 360-degree view of the end-user experience in a single solution.
Unlike legacy offerings that require multiple domain tools, CA APM is a unified solution that links business transaction performance to the dependent application, network and infrastructure component, empowering you to rapidly isolate, diagnose and resolve problems across disparate technology silos – without typing “Alt-Tab.” This powerful breakthrough is made possible by our APM Transaction Model that unifies and simplifies performance data, providing a single source-of-truth on business transaction performance to put you firmly in control of the end-user experience.
The next time you meet with an APM vendor, ask them this very important question:
Is your solution integrated or unified?
If they say unified, then ask them to prove it in a proof of concept. If they say integrated, I think you know what to do next.
To the sweet life!
