Learn to Distinguish Between and Select From Application Performance Management, Network Performance Management, and Application-Aware Network Performance ManagementSEATTLE, WA – MAY 16, 2011 – ExtraHop Networks, a leading provider of network-based application performance management (APM) solutions, will host a free webinar with analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) to discuss performance-management options for monitoring business-critical transactions at the application tier. The webinar, led by EMA Managing Research Director Jim Frey and ExtraHop co-founder and CEO Jesse Rothstein, will examine the best approaches and technologies for gaining the visibility, awareness, and depth of insight required for optimal control of application environments.
Ensuring application performance is a top priority for IT operators. Customer satisfaction, employee productivity, and the overall efficiency of the business all depend on IT's ability to guarantee reliable responsiveness—not just within the data center but across broadly (often globally) distributed organizations. But just as data center and application environments have grown more complex, so has the array of tools available for monitoring them. Having the knowledge to distinguish between and select from application performance management (APM), network performance management (NPM), and application-aware network performance management (ANPM) solutions has become increasingly vital to the success of any IT team.
The webinar, APM, NPM, and ANPM, Oh My! Navigating the Maze of Performance Management Options for Monitoring Business-Critical Transactions at the Application Tier, will be held on Wednesday, May 18, 2011, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PT. In addition to hearing several real-world examples of how new approaches to performance management are making a difference, attendees will learn the following key insights:
- Essential elements for closing the gap between application, transaction, and infrastructure performance
- Primary options for performance management and why all approaches are not created equal
- Best practices for successful deployment of application-centric performance management
