5 Ways APM can solve your DevOps worries (Guest post on DevOps.com)

This week at the interop conference in New York I had the chance to talk to a lot of IT managers transforming their organizations to adopt a DevOps culture. One of the key questions I heard repeatedly was – are there some best practices to break down the wall between Dev and Ops?  How do you get to a point where we can deploy code multiple times a day like Facebook , Amazon and Netflix without impacting our users’ experience ? How do we minimize the risk of deployment failures and the blame game that ensues? With the need to innovate and close the customer feedback loop quickly Ops is being asked to deploy code more rapidly than ever before.  The complexity of hundreds of developers updating code makes it a very sensitive environment. The last thing Operations wants is an outage leading to financial loss and the last thing development wants is to get a call in the middle of the night to figure out what code change caused it.

To have tight control over this fast paced environment we need Application Performance Management at every step. APM can help break down the Chinese wall between Dev and Ops and eliminate the finger pointing that happens during outages.
