re: Why Application Performance Management Matters Now
while I agree with the problem definition above, I think a key coverage element is not described at all. Enterprise applications are not built only on java and .net application servers. They have web servers, proxies, LDAPs, Message brokers and of course native code based (C/C++ and others) application servers. APM tools have to address a mix of application topologies AND follow through the transaction as it accesses resources in and out of the enterprise data center. This, to date, still is addressed only by a single vendor - Correlsense.
