Performance for end users is the metric by which most businesses judge their web applications’ performance: is the responsiveness of the application an asset or a liability to the business? Studies show that users are growing more and more demanding, while average page-loads are getting bigger and bigger. Combine that with frequent releases and cross-business updates, and pretty soon the optimization job is never quite done.

ADCs are advanced load balancers with functions and features that enhance the performance of applications. Today, companies of all sizes with geographical dispersal of people and different data constructs require ADCs to optimize their complex application environments from web applications, to Exchange, SharePoint and databases. It is interesting that before the term ADC was used more recently (in the last decade), companies relied on load balancers for website availability and scalability. In this paper we will describe the fundamentals of a load balancing system and its evolution to an ADC.

Application performance management (APM) tools allow enterprises to proactively manage their investments in bandwidth and the business-critical applications used every day. An application performance management solution is recognized as an essential component of WAN optimization-techniques that help businesses get the best possible performance from existing networks.
However, building a business case for an application performance management solution requires more than a belief in its benefits. It requires some data to quantify the value of a bottom-line result.
This white paper reviews ten business scenarios in which application performance management solutions are used to monitor applications across the WAN deliver a quantifiable Return on Investment (ROI). Example cases and calculations are provided for each scenario, describing how companies have quantified the value of an APM solution in that area.
