<p>Application Performance Management and Utility Computing
Utility computing is a computing model that delivers IT as a measurable service, aligned with business needs and capable of adapting to changing demands. Application performance is one of the key building blocks of VERITAS’ strategy to enable utility computing. Almost every business today relies on its information system, and poorly performing systems result in poorly performing organizations and poor customer perception of these organizations. Recognizing this, businesses are moving beyond traditional availability initiatives that focus only on application uptime, and are implementing programs that also address system uptime and user response time.</p>
