Some vendors call it Application Performance Monitoring while other vendors call it Application Performance Management. But whichever way you look at it APM is about knowing your application Performance, proactively identifying issues across your application stack and being able to predict when things are going to fall over, so as to be able to meet your Service Level Agreements (SLA's) with Business and IT.

I’ve argued for a long time now that getting the right Performance Engineering resources early on in the program can make a big difference, especially on large programs where complex applications, heavy workload and large volumes of data are concerned. This article looks at the merits of bringing on the right set of resources to help the program shape a Performance Engineering strategy tailored to help the program succeed.

Am happy to see the interest that Practical Performance Analyst has created among the community and the exponentially growing traffic to the portal tells me that we've got something good going on here. However, there is a lot of work that needs to be done to keep this initiative going and to sustain it over the longer run i would need support from individuals like yourself.

We've just added a dedicated section for contributing authors at Practical Performance Analyst. The first author to go live is Dr. Rajesh Mansharamani who has contributed a lot of tutorials on different aspects of Performance Engineering. We hope that as Practical Performance Analysts you find them interesting and highly relevant to what you are doing.
