Cloud, Virtualization and Mobile Devices drive the market into a new breed of APM and Big Data Analysis

In the coming year I think we will see many interesting trends in the area of cloud, virtualization and big data. There has been an exponential increase in the number of applications, end users and devices, all contributing to an increase of volume of activity, applications being redesigned to handle these new volumes, and infrastructure resources that need to provide a platform that is capable for these new levels of demand.

Couple this with the fact that users expect your application to behave like Google searches and respond within 1 second - Application Performance Management (APM) is facing new challenges and needs new breed of solutions. The new breed of solutions has to deal with new requirements which are derived from the new trends as we see and anticipate them.

With the exponential increase of user traffic, and derived exponential increase of application and infrastructure components interacting with each other, APM has become a "Big Data" problem on its own. The amount of data that needs to be analyzed, in real-time, puts APM in the "Big Data" space and the APM solutions need to be able to technically deal with huge amounts of data, as well as bursts of traffic in peak times and other seasonal impacts.

In 2013, we will continue to see huge increases in cloud deployments, both public and private, both IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service). Enterprises will be able to deploy faster, rollout faster, and leverage more of their investments, providing their business with more agile capabilities. This will put APM in a much more strategic position than it was. As cloud technologies simplify a lot of operational aspects, performance management becomes more complex and is of greater importance than ever.
