Each evolution of application technology and business services has brought another level of complexity and increased the obsolescence of traditional IT management processes and tools, especially in the area of performance prediction. To help you prepare for and manage the increased complexity, we invite you to attend a live webcast with Forrester and Zenoss.
Forrester Consulting conducted a survey of 161 IT professionals with direct responsibility for business-critical applications. All enterprises surveyed had fundamental issues while managing the availability and performance of these applications and business services.
This expert discussion will look at the survey data to identify a number of trends and what makes an ideal management solution:
•Model applications dependencies on infrastructure components
•Consolidate data from all these components in a way that allows it be shared by the issue investigation teams
•Identify the components at fault rapidly and the root cause of problems
