Application performance management (APM) tools allow enterprises to proactively manage their investments in bandwidth and the business-critical applications used every day. An application performance management solution is recognized as an essential component of WAN optimization-techniques that help businesses get the best possible performance from existing networks.
However, building a business case for an application performance management solution requires more than a belief in its benefits. It requires some data to quantify the value of a bottom-line result.
This white paper reviews ten business scenarios in which application performance management solutions are used to monitor applications across the WAN deliver a quantifiable Return on Investment (ROI). Example cases and calculations are provided for each scenario, describing how companies have quantified the value of an APM solution in that area.

Dynatrace™ is a full stack solution that covers application performance management, digital experience management, infrastructure monitoring and AIOps. Dynatrace commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Dynatrace™.
This study provides readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Dynatrace™ on their organizations and how it can affect business operations and users of all types when moving from prior-generation application performance management (APM) toolsets.
The 2017 study, The Total Economic Impact™ of Microsoft Azure IaaS, gives insight into both the costs and benefits of large-scale Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) implementation.
This commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting analyzes the return on investment and business impact that several enterprises experienced when moving from a primarily on-premises environment to Azure. The companies interviewed come from a variety of industries and locations (global/multinational, North American, and European).
In addition to a 435 percent overall return on an Azure IaaS investment*, the businesses also experienced:
Reduced data center and outsourcing costs.
Website scale and performance improvements.
Ease of experimentation through virtualized environments.
Developer and tester improvements.
Download the study to learn about the potential ROI that could be realized by shifting some or all of your management and operations to Azure.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty.
Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.
With the rise of companies such as Netflix and Uber, the marketplace is feeling the impact of “digital disruptors”—fast-moving, application-centric organizations that are taking advantage of digitalization to create thriving and market-changing business models.
In an effort to stay competitive, more enterprises are adopting multi-cloud strategies as a means “to optimize workload performance and cost” across their IT environment, both on and off premises.
The trend brief “Top Trends Driving the Need for Unified Cloud Management” discusses how a cloud management platform (CMP) enables IT organizations to accelerate IT services delivery and improve data center operations while maintaining control across multi-cloud environments. The brief highlights the VMware enterprise-ready cloud management platform based on VMware vRealize® Suite and powered by Intel® based server platforms.
