APM is the leading tool to manage and track application SLAs using historical reports with fast root cause analysis using highly granular measurements. It provides a bird's eye view which covers all applications, transactions, users and data centers – allowing you to narrow-down to the user, application or transaction level. In addition, this application monitoring allows the extraction of performance information from end-user devices to reflect actual end-user QoE - wherever the clients are, at all times.
The performance measurements are based on user-defined SLA and may include the minimum average response time the application should provide, the percentage of errors and user experience. The SLA can be also drilled down to the geo-location level, allowing administrators to determine if there's a problem with users from a specific region. In addition, it is very easy to deploy and activate APM. It has a short time to operation with a simple button to activate and no scripting or complex agent integration is required.
