Application Management

What is application management?

Put simply, it involves the planning, deployment, monitoring, and maintenance of software applications throughout their lifecycle. These applications can be custom-built or off-the-shelf. They can run on various platforms (desktop, mobile, or the cloud) and, typically, are used for testing, performance optimization, and version control.

App Management tools are often used to automate parts of an application lifecycle, including its deployment, monitoring, and subsequent reporting.

What does APM mean?

In this context, the acronym APM typically refers to “Application Portfolio Management”, which involves analyzing and optimizing an organization’s portfolio of applications. Significantly, APM tools can help organizations with identifying redundancies, retiring legacy applications, and prioritizing new development projects.

Depending on the context though, APM can also be used to refer to “Application Performance Management” which focuses on monitoring and optimizing application performance. Traditionally, Application Performance Management tools provide visibility into application performance metrics, such as response time, resource usage, and error rates.
