Application Performance Monitoring

The rate of change is ever increasing, and with more organisations evolving towards a DevOps environment to support continuous delivery, T&O recognises that infrastructure monitoring alone fails to provide the complete picture.

Our APM services include:

  • Implementation of leading APM solutions including AppDynamics, Dynatrace, and Virtual Instruments
  • Configuration of Alerts, Dashboards and Synthetic Transactions
  • Mobile and Browser Real User Experience Monitoring

Benefits of modern day APM:

  • Rapid Root Cause Analysis – to class/method level - Insight at the code level to identify the impact of application performance on business results
  • Proactively identify issues before impact
  • Confidence when releasing code into production because of increased visibility at the code level
  • Ability to look deeply into customer business transactions and identify issues impacting customer experience and fix them quickly

Network Performance Monitoring

As business systems become more complex, the importance of Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) to diagnose application issues, identify root causes and perform capacity planning has never been greater.

Additional benefits of our NPM solutions include:

  • Proactively monitoring Network Performance across every data point, to maintain SLAs and ensure service continuity
  • Providing complete, end-to-end visibility, down to individual network packets, in real time
  • Correlating time-based data against performance data, to help understand the impact of network performance on your business
