DETROIT — Compuware Corp. (Nasdaq:CPWR) announced that it has published a new white paper titled: “The Convergence of Network Performance Monitoring and Application Performance Management.” The paper explores the recent convergence of network performance monitoring and application performance management, and how it provides a complete and holistic understanding of end-user experience, with an accurate view of performance across the entire application delivery chain.
In today’s IT environment, organizations need a detailed, quantitative understanding of whether their applications are effectively meeting their business objectives. The growing complexity of application architectures prevents traditional network and application monitoring approaches from providing the insight needed into the quality of service and performance of applications really being delivered to end-users.
As the performance of the network and the applications it supports deeply intertwines, a new and holistic approach to monitoring and managing application performance is now required. By integrating NPM into APM more effective decisions can be made regarding IT investments, problem resolution, service restoration and resource allocation.
This white paper outlines:
* why NPM alone is insufficient;
* how app-centric APM is incomplete; and
* why companies must now take a converged approach to NPM and APM.
