For organizations that depend on high-performance applications, the collection provides an easy-to-absorb overview of the evolution of APM technology, best practices, methodology and techniques to help manage and optimize application performance. The APM Best Practices: 2013 APM State-of-the-Art and Trends collection helps IT professionals and business stakeholders keep pace with these changes and learn how application performance techniques will develop over the new year. The collection not only explores APM technology but also examines the related business implications and provides recommendations for how best to leverage APM.
Topics covered in this collection include:
* managing application complexity across the edge and cloud;
* top 10 requirements for creating an APM culture;
* quantifying the financial impact of poor user experience;
