Simplifying Administration and Maximizing Time-to-Value with SmartCloud Application Performance Management 
Speaker: Brian Fisher, Prolifics

Join us as we explore how our clients achieved a quick time to value, and vastly simplified administration, when deploying ITCAM to monitor their middleware infrastructure by taking a non-standard approach. Learn how we simplified the often complex management aspects, and reduced implementation time, by leveraging the APM UI; eliminating the need for Managed System Lists (MSLs) by leveraging the little known Situation Groups; and how they addressed the unique challenges of monitoring a pooled WebSphere Application Server infrastructure.
