Application performance is more crucial than ever in our fast-paced, mobile world. A company without a website is unthinkable these days. Fast-loading websites and mobile applications that are always available are what users have come to expect. Internally, application performance can also have a huge impact on employee productivity.
Application Performance Management leads to satisfied customers
Our vision on Application Performance Management
When developing software, or having it developed, from a business standpoint you are mostly focused on developing the functionality required. You leave the "non-functional requirements" such as performance and security to the IT department. Unfortunately, in the past IT departments have not always invested enough time and resources in non-functional requirements, and they will often lack experience in this area. In their defense, we have to say that they often receive no concrete requirements about these from the business.
In the past, performance problems were often solved by higher investments in infrastructure and servers. However, this isn't much help in the long-term if all it does is obscure the actual problems in the application itself.
These days, every company is confronted from time to time with impatient customers who are frustrated by a slow website or mobile app. This often has a negative impact on the relationship between business and IT. In the worst-case scenario, you lose customers (and money)/productivity (and money)/users, or users opt for an alternative software product (shadow IT). End-to-end tracking of all transactions in an application or across applications gives you a continuous view of transaction performance and the potential changes that can be made. Interpreting the data on a technical level allows you to resolve the problem quickly and proactively, ideally, before your end users/customers experience any problems.
Digital Performance Management
By interpreting the data from the APM tool from a business perspective, you can go a step further. The data tells you how and why users and customers carry out specific actions in your application, so you can respond to your customers' needs in a targeted way. This is known as Digital Performance Management.
