In this day and age, the majority of business transaction processing happens in the cloud, or is consumed as a service from various locations around the globe. If you’re just monitoring your infrastructure back-end resources and systems availability, that’s not enough.
In order to ensure smooth enterprise operations, it’s crucial to monitor the service delivery of your applications. The perception of your service delivery quality may be different between corporate sites, or vary between continents. Your application could be perceived as way too slow by end-users in a particularly strategic region of the world for your business. Once you start objectively and systematically measuring availability and response times, you can begin ensuring the highest possible performance and quality of service to your end users.
