Take Ownership of Application Health and Visibility

High-performing apps require high-performing analytics. The more data you can visualize and make actionable, the faster app owners can respond to it—keeping systems running at top speed, securely, and at scale.
Learn about the four principles of visibility and how they empower you with insights that drive better business outcomes.

The Challenge? Visibility Gaps In Your App Portfolio

Acceleration of digital transformation is pushing the boundaries and the ability to maintain high performing, scalable, and secure applications. Combined with the rush to keep up with, even anticipate, customer needs, this acceleration can increase the chance of application instability, downtime, or security vulnerability.

Without knowing what applications you’re running or how they’re performing, you leave yourself at risk. Risk of customer downtime, risk of security exposure, risk of time wasted fixing preventable problems. The cost of running blind is the cost of being less competitive in the marketplace.

The Fix? Seeing Beyond Siloes Via End-to-End Visability and Analytics

High performing apps require high-performing analytics. Combining key performance and health data from infrastructure, platform, and application services, as well as their relationships, provides multi-dimensional visibility to your overall app health. 

With app-centric visualization, you can:

  • Close unknown gaps in application visibility to expand and strengthen security, compliance, and reliability service-level agreements.
  • Empower application teams to respond faster to emerging problems by detecting them before they start.
  • Provide greater reliability to your customers.
  • Gain new insights into how your apps work together and discover ways to increase performance and scale across siloed infrastructures and platforms.
