If your application performance monitoring (APM) helped make your IT team 80 percent more efficient, couldn’t you get a lot more work done?

At its lowest level, APM runs agents that collect performance data from hundreds of points in your infrastructure, from browser to back end. At its highest level, APM rolls all of that data into a real-time monitoring dashboard so you can see deep into your application performance and receive alerts about risks of downtime well in advance.

The only thing more important than getting an application running is keeping it running. High-performance, responsive applications live in an environment of rapid release schedules, elastic cloud infrastructure, outside web services and mobile devices. The best way to ensure robust application performance is to constantly monitor and analyze all the moving parts.

Application performance monitoring for automotive

Anji Logistics serves automotive and parts manufacturers in China. The company uses Foglight to automate the monitoring and management of its applications, Oracle databases, user experience and physical servers.

The IT team at Anji used to spend about 50 percent of its time manually inspecting software in the company’s data center. Now, Foglight’s automated alert service has helped them get to 100 percent of incident reporting within six minutes, on an average of three minutes after each incident.

With automated monitoring and reporting from the highest to lowest levels of its infrastructure, including user experience, Anji Logistics estimates that its use of Foglight has increased its IT management efficiency by 80 percent overall.

Read the case study Logistics firm speeds up supply chain efficiency with performance monitoring to see how Anji Logistics has much broader and deeper insight at all levels of its IT operations.
