Having the opportunity for a company's IT professionals to regularly monitor critical applications are key for a company's online success. Applications will send data to a server, which is an important part of an end-user's query process to find information. When there are issues with an application and a complete application monitoring system is not in place, it will prove near impossible for the company's IT professionals to identify and resolve the problem quickly.
Application monitoring allows a company's IT professionals better supervision capabilities to ensure that all applications are functioning as expected. A complete application monitoring system should include the ability to create alerts that make the most sense for a company's website. Additionally, the IT professionals that oversee application monitoring should ensure that a company's website is tested from a variety of locations around the globe as well as at different times around the clock.
By reviewing the specific data provided by application monitoring, a company's IT professionals can identify potential response issues or other possible website-health problems before they turn into major concerns that could end in site downtime.
While many application monitoring solutions provide similar data on the surface, it is important to select the right application monitoring solution for the specific needs of a business. If an IT professional just goes with the default settings or the selected application monitoring solution does not provide the necessary data, the company's IT department will not have a complete understanding of how the applications and databases that drive a company's website are responding or providing the best possible end-user experience.
It is equally important to understand how emerging technologies affect overall web performance. As sites utilize more complex applications, such as JAVA or Flash, websites can easily slow to a crawl. While this can be a complicated issue, working to resolve issues related to complex websites can be made more manageable when an appropriate application monitoring solution is in place and the right data is being collected.
