Mapping complex IT systems is one thing, but how to translate what you find into how to improve the business? That’s quite another. But AppDynamics can show us the way.

Show Notes for Series 02 Episode 07

This podcast is produced in conjunction with AppDynamics, a Cisco company.
Many enterprises run IT systems that are necessarily complex. So complex, sometimes, that the number and variety of services, applications and connections comes as a shock, even to the IT Department.

Finding the cause of an outage or slow-down, therefore, can be frustrating and time-consuming. Additionally, it can lead to all sorts of internal “politicking” (to put it nicely).

But even once there’s a coherent “map”, correlating what the business wants with what the IT stack can provide is another headache, and one that’s not easily achieved. Unless, of course, you happen to use AppDynamics.

In this talk with Jim Cavanaugh from the company, we look at how organizations are joining up business aims and objectives with the technical nitty-gritty of networks, clouds, connections and all the whirring boxes in data centers.
