Today's IT support organizations are typically fragmented into silos, each with only partial visibility to the larger application landscape. Within a network, lacking an understanding of applications and transactions in context to the underlying infrastructure makes it nearly impossible to deliver business services that consistently meet expectations. Managing applications requires broad multidimensional insight into production systems, as each vantage point provides a piece of the overall application management puzzle. Many IT organizations struggle to manage applications because they lack an understanding and/or a view of one or more of these dimensions.
Recently completed EMA research highlights these dimensions and the kinds of product capabilities required to manage applications and transactions from a service-focused, holistic perspective. During the Webinar, Craig and Tal will informally discuss today's transaction management challenges in the context of EMA research and OpTier's contributions to solving these challenges through BTM.
"Our recent research has found that an end-to-end approach for managing the flow of applications and transactions through disparate IT systems is becoming necessary to managing today's complex business services," said Craig. "Organizations can leverage BTM capabilities to ensure a more consistent end- user experience and to reduce the risk of outages."
"Tighter budgets and increasing demands on network infrastructure are leading many IT departments to turn to cost effective solutions such as virtualization and SOA. However, while these solutions are effective, they also add yet another layer of complexity," said Tal. "Our Fortune 1000 customers have experienced significant benefits by using our BTM software to monitor application and transaction flow through all levels of the IT infrastructure including virtualized environments and SOAs. This Webinar will help attendees to find a path to experience similar BTM benefits within their own IT projects."
