What is the main focus for IT in your organization - cost or agility? Many IT discussions today focus on cost controls rather than the greater potential benefit - business agility. IT leaders are more likely to ask "How much capital and operational expense can I cut with cloud?" than "How will cloud improve revenue or my company's competitiveness?" Yet business decision makers want IT to help them drive innovation and accelerate past competitors. Forward thinking CIOs are deploying cloud computing as a strategic weapon - not just for IT but ultimately to enable business transformation itself.

You may be considering the move to a SaaS model for several reasons: it's cheaper, easier, more flexible. But then reality sets in. You can't afford to move to SaaS right away. Many of your apps are too mission-critical to trust SaaS at this point, and security restrictions and company guidelines will not allow you to use SaaS for many apps. However, for some apps, it's not an issue, and that number continues to grow. So how do you reconcile? Enter stage left-- Hybrid APM. With the ability to pick and choose between SaaS or on-premises monitoring for your different applications and components, wherever they reside, your troubles are alleviated and the shift towards SaaS can be seamless.
