I'm happy to announce the availability of an informative new EMA white paper, titled, Quest Foglight, An APM-Centric Approach to Managing Networks that reviews the challenges associated with finding the best means for Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and investigates the role that network monitoring can and should play in a successful APM strategy.

Key takeaways:

  • A healthy Infrastructure is useless unless the applications it delivers meet user expectations
  • The user experience can be directly impacted by the network's ability to play its role
  • Collaboration among the stakeholders is key
  • The Foglight approach brings both worlds together

    EMA says: "With the integration of a broad and complete understanding of network health and application activity from the network perspective via Foglight NMS, the Quest APM solution closes the loop, allowing operations teams the ability to work together off of a common set of shared operational intelligence rather than defending non-aligned perspectives."
