Advanced Performance Analytics (APA) Radar Report: Big Data with a New, Real-time Context
EMA VP of Research, Dennis Drogseth, will present the latest research from his Advanced Performance Analytics (APA) Radar Report. APA is a type of analytics optimized for true real-time and often predictive requirements in managing and optimizing the performance and outcomes of IT business services, including application services, VoIP or rich media, as well as other services. It differs from classic warehousing in that discovery, modeling, techniques for data collection and prioritization, and the use of “trusted sources” for relevant KPIs provide a level of efficiency for IT service management that most classic Big Data approaches cannot.
Webinar attendees will also learn how the following 22 APA vendors stack up: AccelOps, AppFirst, Appnomic, BMC, Compuware, eG Innovations, eMite, FireScope, HP, IBM, Interlink, ManageEngine, Neebula, Netuitive, Opnet, OpTier, Prelert, Quest, SevOne, Splunk, VNS (Fluke), and Zyrion.

Big Data Comes of Age
2012 has been the year of Big Data. From a standing start toward the end of the last decade, Big Data has become one of the most talked about topics in IT. There is hardly a vendor who does not have a solution or, at least, a go-to-market strategy. Beyond IT, even the financial and popular press discusses its merits and debates its drawbacks. To address this growing interest, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and 9sight have recently published primary research – Big Data Comes of Age - that provides an in-depth analysis of Big Data.
Research report authors Shawn Rogers and John Myers of EMA and Dr. Barry Devlin of 9sight Consulting will explore key findings of this timely research in this complimentary Webinar.
Tuesday, December 18 at 2:00 p.m. EST
