Gone are the days when it is OK for developers and operations professionals to blindly accept poor visibility and insight into application and system problems. Since the dawn of Application Performance Monitoring (APM) it has become clear there is an evolution in the way organizations are leveraging application performance data. Now more than ever it is critical to embrace the quantum leaps in application and system visibility provided by modern day Application Performance Monitoring solutions. In this presentation we will explore going "beyond" Application Performance Monitoring. We will discuss how modern day APM solutions help to not only keep developers and operations professionals aware of how their mission critical applications are performing, but also provide a mechanism to ensure the many dimensions of APM (application monitoring, automatic detection, troubleshooting, remediation, and historical analysis) are alive and well within your organization.
