Application Performance Monitoring – or APM – deals with the performance monitoring of applications. The goal is to provide users with an optimal operating experience when using a particular piece of software or an entire software package.APM tools provide administrators with data that they can use to identify negative influences and problems in application performance. Ideally, admins will be presented with data straight away that will help them eliminate the problems. APM monitoring tools can be designed specifically for one application or for monitoring multiple applications on the same network. They collect data on CPU performance, memory usage, bandwidth, and data flow.
The term “business process” has a relatively high significance in this context, because it can be used to make meaningful distinctions in the monitoring effort. A business process comprises various activities that support a company in achieving a specific goal. These activities are again very individual, depending of course on how a company is structured and also in which business area it operates. Business Process Monitoring then makes it possible to evaluate these business processes and identify opportunities to improve efficiency, reduce costs and avoid or at least reduce any errors. Incidentally, the Gartner definition, which can be found here, is somewhat broader. According to it, Gartner describes business processes as the coordination of the behavior of people, systems and things in order to achieve specific business results.
