Application Monitoring Tools Guide – Top 50

Today, organizations must constantly ensure that all their software applications, everything from mobile phone apps, videos and rich media content to mission-critical applications are running optimally.  DevOps teams, system administrators, and IT teams must work in sync more than ever before.  Customers and users demand it. Any weakness that negatively impacts your application’s performance will likely result in some unhappy campers – and more importantly, negatively impact your bottom line.  This is where application performance monitoring (APM) tools come into play.

APM is simply the management and monitoring of user experience, availability, and performance of software applications.  Obviously, easier said than done.  Gartner defines APM more formally as one or more software and/or hardware components that facilitate monitoring to meet three main functional dimensions:

  • Digital experience monitoring (DEM)
    • Focused on the end-user or customer interaction with an application
  • Application discovery, tracing, and diagnostics (ADTD)
    • Consists of mapping transactions across multiple servers to find and remedy problems
  • Artificial intelligence for IT operations (AIOps) for applications
    • The use of big data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to identify and resolve IT issues

Over the last decade, as the shift from stand-alone and client-server applications to cloud-based applications increased, in addition to the general reliance and growth of the internet and mobile applications, development and deployment times have become shorter.  Vendors that primarily focused on network and systems management quickly realized the importance of developing toolsets to help their customers manage and monitor their software applications, thus application performance monitoring was born.

The primary goal of APM is to detect complex IT issues and anomalies to maintain an agreed upon level of service, helping you reduce the impact to your bottom line by being able to more quickly resolve performance issues. The APM tools of today are much more robust and can help detect and alert you to application issues before they are put into production, but they are also vital for detecting application issues in a live environment.  For example, what if credit card transactions on your site were taking longer than usual?  Would you rather you had a tool that could detect and assist with diagnosing that issue before more customers are impacted? Or would you rather wait for a customer complaint to notify you?

Selecting a solution can seem challenging, almost impossible, with just the sheer number of vendors to choose from.  It’s important to evaluate each solution carefully to ensure it meets your needs.  Most importantly, a tool that focuses on the performance and monitoring of the real end-user experience/interaction of your application, rather than just utilizing big data or artificial intelligence to make decisions, is essential.
