Applications are the backbone of any business, so it is imperative to ensure business-critical apps are optimized for performance. Typically, applications and services are developed at a layer of abstraction above the details of the underlying network architecture—and with the implicit trust that someone else is ensuring API calls get to and from the right place within acceptable latency and performance thresholds.
This “someone else” includes the networking and NetOps teams, who are concerned with how well and how fast packets move across the network. It is at this boundary where the DevOps and NetOps worlds operate—marching to different SLA requirements and workflows—that problems can surface, compromising service delivery and putting digital experiences at risk.
In this eBook, you’ll learn how:
- Silos between DevOps and NetOps can lead to suboptimal application experiences
- Network teams can proactively influence app experience by adopting a DevOps mentality
- Transaction monitoring can be combined with Internet and WAN visibility to remove silos between teams
