Due to Agile Development, applications are now changing more quickly than ever before. So we are going to have rapidly changing applications running on a rapidly changing software infrastructure. This will drive the need for SDDC Application Performance Management.

VMware now joins the ranks of many vendors who can monitor virtual (and through integration adapters – physical) environments, and who provide performance and capacity management features.
