This makes for a really delicate negotiation. Despite their ambitions, you need to be pragmatic about how you may realize their vision. Of course, no executive wants to hear that his vision is too ambitious. Simply stating that the goal is a “bridge too far” is not going to be helpful. You have to devise a plan that will let you deliver what is solidly within your current capabilities and still allow for some time and flexibility to achieve the other activities that are not yet within current capabilities.

The monitoring organization itself began to wither, relegated to operational overhead and exposed to the unforgiving eye of cost reduction and outsourcing. The new millennium would usher in the next generation of monitoring tools specifically designed to overcome the limitations of traditional SNMP monitoring and eliminate the additional programming needed to generate more useful performance metrics. In parallel, and somewhat unexpectedly, the IT environment began a significant re-sizing in terms of investment and staff.

More subtly, are user transactions also failing or are the transaction definitions out of date? There are also arguments against the deployment of APM technology for certain environments and applications. There are a large number of legacy applications and technologies that are not addressed by APM technology and remain excellent candidates for AM. Nothing changes for those applications and resources, but it is important to understand what they are and what their impact may be, if any, on the distributed applications on which APM is focused.
