The focus of organizations of all types is increasingly on improving the management of their information systems to drive performance, growth and success. However, traditional approaches to application services (AS) management are falling short in meeting today’s challenges. In managing their applications, many organizations aim to achieve the following:

  • Modernize, consolidate and coordinate operations
  • Innovate to better meet evolving needs and accelerate business outcomes
  • Drive transformation towards agile development methodologies
  • Deliver new applications more quickly and with higher quality
  • Leverage real-time performance visualization to improve business outcomes
  • Manage costs and eliminate unproductive effort

With traditional AS management approaches, effectively achieving these objectives on an ongoing basis has been a challenge. One of the key shortfalls of traditional approaches is their focus on input rather than output. With these approaches, the number of people required to perform everyday tasks is more of a consideration than the output of those resources.
