2 I. Purpose of the Request for Information The Wisconsin Department of Administration, State Bureau of Procurement on behalf of the Division of Enterprise Technology (DET) is releasing this Request for Information (RFI) in order to solicit responses for an application performance management product. Application Performance Management (APM) solutions monitor the availability and performance of software applications and provide diagnostic information to help maintain SLA levels. The main purpose of the RFI is to obtain current, detailed information regarding application performance offerings to help formulate an organizational strategy and operational plan around the implementation of APM. Goals include: Provide increased visibility and analytic data to technicians and managers in terms of application performance Provide prompt notification when an application needs attention Reduce the time and improve technicians ability to manage applications change the technicians world from a reactive environment to a proactive environment Change our technician s focus from nuts and bolts systems management, towards supporting our customers need to build and maintain their business applications Key business drivers for DET include simplified management of application monitoring, significant overall cost savings, and scalability. Keys to success include: Technicians will spend their time working with their customers to manage application availability, service levels, incidents and problems, capacity, performance levels, releases, assets, and configurations, rather than configuring APM software Provide a methodology for integrating APM software into existing ticket management Ease of use for both business leaders and technical staff Varying levels of APM monitoring to meet different needs, from basic up/down for low demand websites, critical monitoring of enterprise applications, and possibly deep dive component monitoring for a small number of in house applications End to End monitoring The information gained from this RFI may be used in the development of a competitive procurement leading to the selection of an APM product.
