In the below posts, learn how measuring app performance is just as important as any other area factoring into the functionality, quality, maintainability and advancement of mainframe applications your organization develops. Simply developing applications and sending them out to operate isn’t enough. It’s important for your organization to understand how those applications perform.

App performance indicates how well your mainframe applications are functioning according to the standards they’re designed for and expected to meet, both from a development/operations standpoint and, most importantly, your customers’ perspectives. By measuring performance with the right tools and processes, your organization can notice deficiencies, bugs and other impediments, and correct them. But measuring performance can also indicate an application is doing well, which is just as important for your IT teams to stay aware of for the purpose of maintaining confidence and acknowledging the direction of development you’ve taken is producing the desired outcomes.

To ensure your teams are handling app performance in the best manner possible, read the below posts that provide insights into improving how you measure the functionality of your mainframe applications.
