For many IT organizations, 2014 is going to bring a renewed emphasis on refining their network and data center operations to ensure they deliver the best user experience possible. From our perspective, then, 2014 trends will include:
Making Mobile Part of Application User Experience Monitoring – The move towards infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is pushing business applications into the cloud. Similarly, increasing demand for mobile access to those business applications is pushing the development of native, mobile applications that are optimized to access the business applications via smartphones and tablets. In turn, more companies will extend their user experience monitoring to include the mobile applications executing on the users’ mobile devices as well as the applications executing on backend servers.
Automating Application Workloads – We’ll continue to see an integration of application workloads in private data centers and public clouds as more companies turn to public cloud infrastructures to extend their own data centers for agile, elastic service provisioning. That means some workloads running in the private data center will have to move to the cloud. Going forward, more businesses will adopt tools that can automate and facilitate workload management across private and public clouds.
