Why Application Performance Management Needs Better Database Monitoring

There's a lot of emphasis going into tracking the customer's transaction performance through all of the factors that might slow it down. Today there is lots of emphasis on looking into the source code, looking at APIs, looking into the network, looking into the servers, VMs, and containers on-prem or in the cloud. But let's not forget an essential component that's not getting a lot of attention: databases. Customer obsession and performance management depend as much today as ever -- maybe more -- on databases. And they're not getting any simpler! Complex distributed databases like Hadoop, Cassandra, and NoSQL require monitoring and management that's very different and much more complex -- monitoring that integrates into the APM systems and analytics required to achieve customer obsession.

In this webinar, join guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Milan Hanson, who will discuss the importance of customer experience, customer obsession and the technological and cultural shift this creates. Following Milan, SelectStar General Manager Mike Kelly will highlight key trends driving database monitoring and management, including how it relates to application performance.
