Updating app performance management for the app economy
Traditional metrics like low disk space and adequate infrastructure are just as necessary to companies' application performance management (APM) strategies as they were decades ago, in the early stages of computerized work processes. But there's one crucial piece of APM that modern companies need to focus on if they want to stay competitive in today's "app economy": user experience. Unfortunately, many CIOs' app performance management strategies sorely need an update, whether it's because of a complex IT infrastructure or inadequate APM tools.
In this issue of CIO Decisions, IT leaders and experts offer app performance management tips and best practices. Plus, we give an overview of how cognitive systems like IBM Watson could be a competitive advantage for companies; look at how Agile methodology can be applied to CIOs' change management strategies; delve into the key takeaways from the Society for Information Management's latest CIO survey; talk to Nemertes CEO Johna Till Johnson about why companies need to rethink their security architectures; and examine the benefits of a tight CIO-CMO partnership.
