IT infrastructure exists for one main purpose: supporting line-of-business (LOB) applications. There are often two very different groups sharing this responsibility: the application owners and the IT operations managers. The application owners are tasked with delivering the actual business activity, while the operations team is responsible for making it all work. This division has often led to friction, delays, and inefficiency.
In an era of 24/7 business operations, rapid iterations, agile responses to market conditions, and the ability to deal with sudden surges are critical. An emerging practice called DevOps honors the needs of both organizations and provides an exciting new framework that makes it possible. While application owners and operations personnel realize that they have shared performance concerns and values, they need a platform for managing perpetual change and complexity that can put them on the same page, help them get optimal application performance, and enable them to iterate rapidly with high quality.
In this eGuide, you’ll learn about the need for application workload metrics and how deeper insight can smooth DevOps processes and benefit the entire organization.
