Finance Is Changing Fast, Can Your Apps Keep Up?


The finance field undergoes rapid changes—and financial organizations must be able to adapt to those changes at lightning speed in order to stay one step ahead of the competition. They must also be able to foresee customer needs and address them before them the competitors do, otherwise they risk losing their fickle clients.

Additionally, customers expect their financial institutions to be readily accessible at all times and for them to be able to conduct their financial transactions reliably 24/7. A lag in the performance of their mission-critical applications—such as investment and portfolio management, online banking, and claim processing software—can cost banks thousands of dollars every minute. Financial organizations must be able to prevent and attend to emerging issues early on before they progress and disrupt the entire business. IT teams must be able to meet these demands while facing challenges of increasing IT complexity, difficulty prioritizing, trouble pinpointing root causes, and understaffing.

Furthermore, stricter regulations regarding how financial institutions can store and transmit customer information and increased IT security threats from hackers worldwide have made it increasingly challenging and important to have continuous monitoring and effective management of mission-critical apps. The main problem of IT essentially has to do with lacking insight into the organization’s mission-critical apps. Read how financial institutions can use application performance management solutions to maximize performance, reduce bottlenecks, quickly troubleshoot problems, and proactively monitor applications.
