    Application Performance Optimization

    An IT infrastructure strategy composed of a variety of technologies utilized by organizations to bolster the availability, accessibility, security and overall performance of a business network. Effectively implemented, business-critical applications and information can be efficiently delivered to a variety of users both locally and around the world.

    Application performance optimization employs a number of techniques that are implemented within an organization's IT infrastructure to amplify the functionality of a network, including the monitoring of bandwidth capacity, application protocols, overall network traffic, application coding, network latency, potential attacks of software vulnerabilities and more. While each of these techniques adds to the effectiveness of a network's application delivery, the optimal way to maintain efficient delivery methods is to utilize a proactive monitoring system to record and measure total end-to-end performance metrics. By closely monitoring the manner in which particular networks function and by handling potential threats before problems arise, businesses can optimize their content networks. This will allow for delivery paths to sustain the comprehensive health of an entire IT system and sustain efficient delivery paths for all business-critical applications.
