The Top 5 Advantages of SaaS-based APM
1. Time to Value
Experience APM benefits within seconds without any interaction from technical consultants or sales people by opting for the free trial.
2. Cost – Licenses, Maintenance, Administration, Hardware
Subscription-based licenses are more flexible, cheaper and less risky when compared to owning perpetual licenses.
No hardware needed to run your APM management server as you need to simply deploy your agents and relax.
Subscription includes annual maintenance and the cost of managing and maintaining the APM infrastructure for monitoring your applications.
3. Ease of Use
SaaS-based APM is adopted by development, operations and business users.
4. Migrating to the Latest Releases
In the case of SaaS-based APM, the vendors are responsible for the migration. Customers need to only login and they automatically get access to the latest version and features. Usually, customers upgrade their APM software once a year. However, with SaaS-based APM, the users receive multiple upgrades and they are always on the latest version.
Scaling APM has never been more easy. As you deploy more agents, you need more management servers to gather, process, and manage the data.
