Consider your data center as a factory, and the “products” you deliver are business services. You need to know how many widgets you have in inventory, how many have been purchased, and other details to ensure that you meet production deadlines. Because any slowdown or disruption of the IT “production line” can have serious business consequences, it’s important to keep the IT factory running smoothly and at high performance levels.
Like all factories, IT has multiple production lines (applications) producing a variety of products (services). You need to know the status of complex applications, and you need to keep IT, applications, and business operations personnel informed about the performance of the “production lines.” Access to the appropriate information enables faster decision making, reduces risk, and improves performance.
Middleware operates like a conveyor belt in a factory production line in that it guides products through multiple stages of manufacturing. It ties together the various application components in a logical sequence and provides the necessary communication among the components. How do you implement an effective middleware performance management infrastructure? Start with the strategies discussed here.
Keep your IT factory running smoothly with the right tools.
