A Smarter Approach to Drive Business and Improve Application Performance
Nowadays applications are tuned to serve priorities that drive business efficiency. If the right set of services to improve application performance is developed, then it would be a clever move to drive up business revenue.
Application performance management has always been a concern for an enterprise. Right from the coding, storage space, disk performance, memory etc., the performance of an application revolves around the unpredictability of the different components used in a cloud platform. Hence, regular monitoring gives insight into the applications and uncovers areas for business growth via improving application performance. Progressive Infotech gives here a few ways to improve APM across your organization.
Start with the business priorities: Instead of tuning technical metrics that reflect latencies, work together with business managers to identify the workload priorities and opt for applications suitable for business goals. In many instances, the latencies can be solved easily because the problem(s) may exist on Cloud slowing down the app. By undertaking a basic proof-of-concept testing, including performance testing, while selecting Cloud providers can be useful in avoiding latencies.
Infrastructure planning: Cloud is a platform where data, applications, programs, etc. are loosely coupled into working together. Using buffers or caches with all the working components to pass on performance information can improve the working of an application drastically.
Response time: When clients relocate basic applications to the cloud, they anticipate that distributed computing execution will be perfect. However, post-migration, an app may follow the old system protocols instead of the new system parameters resulting in slow performance. If the app is broken down into microservices, then the architecture allows deploying and scaling those components independently making it more efficient with a good response time.
Use a Load balancer: A load balancer allows the management and distribution of workloads and resources to provide an optimum performance across multiple computers, networks or servers. This helps to route traffic to the best performing instances and also provide metrics to identify latencies in applications that giving visibility over performance.
DevOps Approach: When application development and operations’ teams work together to meet technical and business goals, the flexibility of micro-services can be achieved that be used to quickly develop, deploy and change applications. For Cloud-ready enterprises, this DevOps approach can be the way for better performing application development.
Experts at Progressive Infotech believe that the key to warranting a high application performance is to continually monitor, track latencies and build processes that can respond to issues quickly. This would ensure business continuity, scalability, and high business revenue in the long run.
