Whitepaper: The Convergence of Network Performance Monitoring and Application Performance Management

by CompuwareOct 15, 2014

Today, enterprises rely heavily on applications for nearly all business-critical processes. These applications are delivered via a combination of hardware, software and services, known as the application delivery chain. To make this delivery chain work together effectively, IT must take a new and converged approach to network performance monitoring and application performance management.

This whitepaper discusses:
• Why NPM alone is not enough
• How application-centric APM is incomplete
• How combining APM and NPM will accelerate problem solving

Whitepaper: Optimizing Hadoop: A collection of articles from the Compuware APM Center of Best Practices

by CompuwareJul 25, 2014

This collection discusses the common performance issues encountered when managing jobs in a Hadoop environment. Whether you are running Hadoop on-premise or utilizing a cloud-hosted MapReduce environment, or a combination of the two, this collection will give you real-world examples of how to improve the distribution and utilization of your big data deployment.

Some of the key challenges we have seen include:

• Jobs running slow or failing without a clear reason as to why, how, or when
• Sub-optimal cluster utilization leading to inefficiencies and long job times
• Time and Talent consuming problem tracking
• Performance issues that impact end users, there by incurring SLA penalties


Whitepaper: Take Back Control of Your Cloud Apps: Which SLAs Really Protect Your Bottom Line?

by CompuwareJul 25, 2014

In December 2013, Compuware commissioned Research in Action to conduct a global, independent survey of 740 senior IT professionals' attitudes and concerns relating to cloud computing. The results revealed that businesses worry that the reduced visibility and control that accompanies their move to the cloud hampers their ability to deliver a high quality end-user experience with applications. The study shows that the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) offered by cloud providers are failing to address the needs of their customers, as they are too simplistic.


Whitepaper: Optimizing Cloud and Virtualized Applications: A collection of articles from the Compuware APM Center of Best Practices

by CompuwareJul 25, 2014

This collection of articles substantiates growing concerns over application performance in cloud and/or virtualized environments. While cost reduction is a primary reason enterprises move from traditional datacenter infrastructure to distributed computing, the economics don't pan out if application performance and, subsequently, user adoption suffer. However, a good understanding of performance in the cloud or in virtualized environments demands a wholly different approach to monitoring, as explained in the following articles authored by technology strategists and members of the Compuware APM Center of Excellence.
