Today's dynamic, on-demand business depends on an array of complex applications. Traditional siloed tools that monitor individual systems are not equipped to manage and diagnose composite application performance and availability problems. As a result, operations and development teams relying on disparate tooling waste countless hours trying to identify, isolate and fix these problems. Poorly performing composite applications can have serious financial consequences on top- and bottom-line results of the business.
The growing complexity of modern business demands the use of a comprehensive application management solution that can link diverse systems and processes while presenting a user-friendly interface. Although many IT organizations already have high-level monitoring solutions in place to meet the changing needs of an enterprise, the depth and complexity of composite applications require more detailed analysis. Conventional monitoring solutions sometimes fall short of determining the root cause of application failure. Customers need a comprehensive solution that helps them isolate and diagnose application performance problems, thereby preventing revenue losses.
IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager (ITCAM) for Application Diagnostics enables users to view the health of Web applications and servers, then drill down to diagnostic information for specific application requests to identify the root cause of problems. This comprehensive solution reduces the time it takes to resolve poor performance, reducing downtime costs and improving customer satisfaction. With the breadth of the Tivoli monitoring portfolio, administrators can understand end user experience, track transactions to isolate bottlenecks, and, with ITCAM for Application Diagnostics, perform deep problem determination to resolve bottlenecks.
