According to a recent SolarWinds survey conducted in Singapore, application performance and availability affect 94 percent of business end users' abilities to do their jobs, with over half of them (59 percent) saying it is absolutely critical.
Two-thirds of the respondents (71 percent) also mentioned that app performance and availability have become more important to doing their jobs over the past five years. Of this group, 61 percent said app performance and availability have become more critical because the amount of time they spend using apps on the job has increased. 57 percent also said they are expected to work faster and meet their deadlines sooner.
SolarWinds, IT performance management software provider, announced today new and enhanced product offerings to help IT ensure optimal application performance by monitoring the complete application stack (AppStack) through a single pane of glass.
Specifically, the company introduced the new Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) and released significant updates to Server & Application Monitor (SAM), Virtualisation Manager and Web Performance Monitor (WPM), including greater integration with SolarWinds' Orion technology backbone and the new SolarWinds AppStack dashboard.
"Applications and the supporting IT infrastructure are the centre of every business. When those applications and systems are slow and when access is not available, productivity comes to a halt, revenue opportunities are lost and businesses suffer. As such, IT pros cannot afford to continue trying to resolve application issues within disconnected silos," said Nikki Jennings, Group Vice President, Systems Management Products, SolarWinds.
"With these latest releases and the addition of the AppStack dashboard capability across our core systems management solutions, SolarWinds provides IT pros unparalleled top-to-bottom visibility of the application delivery chain - including storage, servers, virtualisation, cloud, the Web and more - to better identify, prioritise and resolve application issues," she added.
