IT leaders are still grappling with application management, with real-time operations, end-user expectations and service level agreements demanding improved application management.

IT leaders are still grappling with application management, with real-time operations, end-user expectations and service level agreements demanding improved application management.

Research commissioned by Quest Software questioned 100 IT decision-makers in companies of more than 500 people, and asked them to cite the most troublesome applications to manage.

The most awkward applications were custom Java (48%), other sector specific applications (43%), custom applications using Microsoft.Net (32%), and home-grown applications (30%).

Conversely, the two easiest applications to manage were application behemoths Oracle (17%) and SAP (18%).

According to the research, two-thirds (66%) of organisations do not use third-party application performance management tools for their critical applications.

One-in-five (20%) cannot afford to run them, and a further 17% do not realise such tools exist.

Nine-out-of-10 (89%) IT managers want to provide different views of the same performance management data sets to different users.

Yet, almost two-thirds (64%) of IT decision-makers said their application performance management software could not deliver this key requirement.
