10 Reasons Why Developers Need Application Performance Monitoring

In today's business world, user expectations for application performance are incredibly high. This comes at a time when, from a developer's standpoint, challenges are constantly growing. In particular, developing business applications today is more complex than when a single application ran on dedicated hardware with its traffic running over a corporate backbone network.

Applications typically are comprised of multiple components, each running on different systems—virtualized, distributed, hybrid, and cloud—all interconnected using a variety of company-owned, public Internet-based, or even cellular networks.

To build such modern applications, developers could use some help. That is where application performance management (APM) solutions come in.

The Rise of Mobile Access to Your ERP Data

Mobile user access to enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other back-office systems has become a core requirement as organizations seek operational efficiency and deepening customer engagement. Without mobile access, system users are disadvantaged by needing to return to a desktop, often after a job is completed, to enter data relating to that job and get information about other jobs. Frequently that information is not entered at all, which becomes a further hindrance to user adoption of your ERP investment.

Mobile users increasingly are looking for ease of access to ERP information to perform their jobs on any device at any time. This requires the mobile solution to handle:

  • Different mobile devices and applications for different roles/jobs
  • Ability to be used by staff with limited computer or language skills, in adverse conditions
In this age of “bring your own device” (BYOD), mobile devices are affordable, mainstream, reliable, secure, and scalable to run multiple applications. We are now able to prove return on investments from those organizations that have implemented mobile solutions and developed BYOD policies. In today’s environment, mobile solutions are seen as core drivers of organizations pushing to gain operational efficiencies over their competitors. According to a recent report from Aberdeen Group, “enterprise mobile apps in 2013 are no longer ‘nice to have’—they’ve become essential enablers of organizational transformation, by increasing operational efficiency, accelerating time-to-decision, deepening customer engagement, and streamlining workflow processes.”

Optimizing the Mobile Workforce: Maximizing the Value of Your Investment in Mobility

Today, enterprises leverage mobility for more than just communication. They want to maximize the productivity of the mobile workforce. That means choosing mobile devices, applications, policies, and services aligned with enterprise goals. What matters most to enterprises today is equipping the mobile workforce for success at the right cost and with acceptable security.

Optimizing the mobile workforce is a matter of finding the right balance between cost, security, and usability. Usability correlates with productivity, which is maximized by the right devices, applications, and support. Optimizing all these factors is a significant challenge, but taking a systematic approach can help an enterprise maximize the value of investment in mobility.
