Each month we launch a new audience survey to gather data and feedback for our groundbreaking Market Landscape Reports. In June, we’ll be publishing the 2016 Network and Application Performance Management Report, so it’s time for the 2016 SDx APM/NPM Survey.
The emergence of cloud and software-defined infrastructure has significantly changed how IT networks and applications are monitored, managed, and optimized. The 2016 SDx APM/NPM Survey will collect user opinions on emerging network performance monitoring (NPM) and application performance management (APM) solutions and how they will become significant to realizing the benefit of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).
This is your opportunity to tell us what you think and have heard about APM and NPM technology in the marketplace, as well as how you think they will evolve and be used in the future for SDN and NFV networks. If you complete our survey, which only takes a few minutes, you can receive an exclusive preview of the results before they are released to the public – and the opportunity to enter an online raffle for a chance to win one of two $200 Amazon gift cards.
The results of the survey will contribute to the market analysis in the 2016 Network and Application Performance Management Report. It will be interesting to see what users in the community have to say about the impact that cloud and virtualization are having on APM and NPM products.
Some of the things we hope to learn from the survey:
- How has the cloud model and the explosion of data changed the needs for APM and NPM products?
- What are the most important emerging standards for applications management and network monitoring?
- Which product vendors have an edge or are considered leaders?
- What are the largest challenges to building APM and NPM solutions?
- What will be needed to scale these solutions to meet the needs of gigabit and real-time network applications?
Our Market Landscape reports have been gaining huge traction, with some getting more than 4,000 downloads. This report will be our first in a series on APM and NPM and will include feedback from dozens of end-users as well as product submissions from more than 50 companies.
So, if you have a few extra minutes, take the survey to get a free preview of the results and a chance to win some Amazon credit.
You must be an SDxCentral member to participate. Registration is free and easy.
We are asking participants to log in because we’ve encountered attempted fraud when publishing surveys in the past. Survey results will not be associated with participants’ login information. We will only use the details of the survey to generate aggregated results.
We welcome any and all feedback on the Report, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with your ideas – simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
