Needed visibility into the performance of popular internal applications
32Red had legacy applications that had been developed with limited documentation. Robert Deaves, Head of IT for 32Red, needed to find out how these applications were performing, if they were being used, and to understand further what their dependencies were.
“We needed more visibility. We needed the ability to see which legacy applications were generating busy transactions and what their dependencies were. Once we had that information, we could start to optimize their performance and put more rigorous controls in place. Without this information, it was difficult to effectively support or re-architecture these older applications” Deaves explains.
