While VMware's virtualization capabilities ushered in a world of potential benefits, they also brought an entirely new world of challenges from a monitoring perspective-challenges that legacy system management tools and point solutions are ill-equipped to address. This white paper offers an overview of the unique challenges of monitoring service levels of business applications in a virtualized environment, and it reveals how Nimsoft products uniquely addresses these challenges.
Businesses are now competing in an application economy. More than ever, it is the caliber of applications that shapes an organization’s fortunes. Enterprises will increasingly need value-added services that help speed application innovation. Those cloud service providers (CSPs) that address this demand can move up in the value chain, boost differentiation and establish more strategic customer relationships. This white paper details the opportunities, the requirements and the strategies for delivering winning application-centric cloud services in the application economy

The world economy has become service and project-driven. Global businesses have realized the new playing field is not based solely on competing with products and price, but rather through client-driven projects that require unique consulting knowledge, skills and experience. This project-driven service economy depends on accurately capturing knowledge-worker productivity—how much time, skill, materials and intellectual property are required to produce favorable client outcomes? New cloud-based Services Resource Planning (SRP) applications have emerged to manage the entire project lifecycle from requirements to quoting, time and expense capture and billing. SRP provides the systems basis for initiation, planning, resource management, execution, close and control of projects and services.

Business applications today have become the primary interface between a company and its customers. And, there has simultaneously been tremendous innovation in the area of business intelligence, which can unlock a personalized experience for each and every user - and help support key corporate objectives to increase revenue, strengthen customer loyalty and establish and maintain a high-quality brand in the marketplace. For technology managers, then, this is an exciting time to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. But, the situation also exposes the intense risk we place on our IT applications because they now carry enormous organizational responsibility and significance. Companies that have implemented infrastructure management solutions from CA Technologies Report:
. Service desk calls by as much as 40%
. Reduction of IT management tools in use by 50%
. First-call closure rate improvement by a factor of three
. Mean-time-to-repair improvements of up to 50%
. Staff efficiency improvements of up to 43%
. An average return on investment in nine months or less
While the rise of web-enabled applications and the zero latency customers expect from them has driven many enterprises to adopt performance management solutions, they are finding that basic understanding of how their overall user populations are being served is simply not enough. Rather, to improve and ensure the performance and availability of their business-critical web applications, organizations need to be able to see and understand the actual user experience-and provide the appropriate context and visibility necessary to fix problems based on impact-based priority.
Companies that have fully implemented application performance management solutions from CA Technologies report:
. Reductions in application downtime by as much as 70%
. Decreases in mean time to repair by 50% or more
. Decreases in application performance delays by greater than 70%
. An average return on investment of 362% within eight months or less
. A total benefit of ownership of $6,443,039 over three year

In this White Paper, IDC discusses the reasons for ongoing data growth within organizations and examines a number of technology approaches that can help IT departments manage the costs associated with provisioning storage more effectively. Understanding what drives the growth of data, the challenges inherent with existing practices for provisioning new storage and the economic impact of the low utilization rates for storage found in most enterprises will help businesses in assessing the right approach to their next storage acquisition, in light of the change in economic dynamics and the looming threat of a storage management meltdown. IT departments have several primary concerns about storage infrastructure:
* Ensuring application and data availability
* Limiting downtime, both scheduled and unscheduled
* Ensuring data security and integrity
* Reducing the initial acquisition and ongoing costs associated with storage
* Managing storage resources and their utilization levels
* Addressing the complexities within the storage environment
All of these issues are of great concern to IT departments and, if not handled correctly, can lead to challenges for the business. Since many IT departments are concerned with these issues, we can begin to understand the many challenges faced when it is time to provision new storage capacity, be it for a new application or to cater for the growth in data from existing applications or users.
