Application Performance Management

Application Performance Management (APM) was first introduced in the mid-’90s to address complex Java applications built to J2EE application servers. Then in the early part of the 2000s, APM evolved to address the newly invented n-tier application and the resulting distributed application architecture. Now, the application architecture is shifting again to an even more distributed and approach-oriented basis around microservices running in containers.

Let us explore how today’s applications need to be monitored based on business needs and challenges driven by increased complexity, including:

  • Digital Transformation
  • Evolution of the Technology Stack
  • Multi-Cloud Architecture and Platforms
  • Dynamic nature of the Stack

Finally, and most importantly, how APM must evolve to become more comprehensive, simpler to implement, and more affordable to address this explosion of new applications in production.
