News of recent credit card hacks has rocked consumer confidence. Even talk of a security breach can bring on a PR firestorm. What can you do to make sure your customers and clients are protected? The 12 Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) requirements along with the right Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution can help keep you one step ahead of the hackers.
Organizations planning to migrate all or a portion of their applications or services to a public cloud environment will benefit from the experiences of early adopters. As a leader in hybrid IT monitoring, Viavi Solutions® has been involved at all stages of the cloud-migration life cycle: during assessment, implementation, and after deployment.
Based on Viavi’s and our technology partners’ experience and many conversations with customers, prospects, and others in the industry, this white paper offers insight into 6 key questions regarding cloud adoptions: 1. Why Migrate 2. What to Migrate 3. What are the Steps to Cloud Migration 4. When to Migrate 5. Where to Migrate 6. Who to Ask for More Help
The purpose of this IDC White Paper is to lay out the role that performance testing can play in the context of overall application lifecycle management (ALM), security, resource, and demand management. As part of that objective, the document defines an application performance testing framework and discusses a performance test evolution path and the relationship between a successful approach to performance testing and related IT elements such as monitoring, security, ALM, and project and portfolio management (PPM).
This paper prescribes four ways in which today’s monitoring technology must adapt to adequately meet the challenges presented by Web 2.0, and how Foglight, Dell’s APM solution, addresses these challenges.

As organizations rely on IT to support critical business processes to an ever-greater degree, the importance of application performance management (APM) is growing. Gone are the days when systems monitoring and management could focus on
components in isolation; instead, organizations must ensure that applications are operating at top e?ciency from end to end to support critical business processes. This requires a holistic focus on the end user’s application experience.

If you work on a network operations team, you know how increasingly hard it is to understand and ensure application performance for your end users. You need visibility into areas where issues may occur – end-user devices, network and infrastructure – in order to identify and diagnose problems quickly
and minimize downtime.
But it hasn’t been easy to gain this level of visibility across the WAN or hybrid network without deploying additional probes, packet capture devices or remote site technicians. Blind spots are everywhere making it difficult to focus on managing and monitoring the applications that matter the most to your business. And when nearly 50% of a network’s traffic is web-based and it all looks the same to the network, identifying your important applications and staying ahead of their performance problem is more difficult than ever. That could mean inefficient troubleshooting, longer time to resolution, and an overall lack of application intelligence. Who wants that?

Network monitoring software packages require complex installation, ongoing maintenance and additional costs for servers and third-party applications. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) network monitoring alternatives greatly simplify implementation and maintenance, but they rely on uninterrupted Internet access to function, often require complex VPNs or firewall modifications, and typically provide limited access to historical data.
The applications for the healthcare industry are multiple, including asset tracking, patient tracking, staff location, baby monitoring, blood bank distribution, and more. Learn more in this overview by GAO RFID.
What is often overlooked is that application performance is just one of three key drivers of return on investment (ROI) from your Siebel application. An efficient infrastructure is critical. It's important to optimize the Siebel application for your own unique business environment, user needs and usage patterns. But, it's all for naught if you do not build and sustain adoption and efficient and effective use of the Siebel application by your end users.

Organizations have implemented enterprise applications such as ERP and CRM for business process execution but have failed to address the key enterprise asset: data. In the current economic environment, enterprises that fail to capitalize on their data assets jeopardize their cost structures and their earnings potential. It is vital for organizations to leverage their data assets to measure their business performance, identify the weak poles and strategic improvement spots to scale their business to new heights. Business Intelligence (BI), the recent innovation in IT, has emerged to be a potential hope for the organizations to build a strong business milieu without any new asset investments and utilizing the existing key assets of the organizations.
