Join this DIR webinar for an executive briefing (first 30 minutes) and live demonstration of the APM environment created to support a pilot of APM functions and governance with seven participating agencies.  The pilot environment is based on CA Technologies' CA PPM SaaS tool.

Following the 2014 legacy systems study and the passage of HB 1890, DIR was directed to provide an APM service with the option to perform a pilot to better understand the needs and scope of a full service. This APM pilot resulted in a few findings for agencies including the value of having a centralized approach to APM to collect and analyze data, having an APM to describe the relationships between their business applications, and having effective APM governance to ensure consistent configuration, among others.

Final recommendations of the pilot confirmed that an APM solution is viable for state agencies and interested customers. DIR should design, procure, and offer the APM service to all interested agencies. DIR has the budget and authority to initiate the service and will likely proceed with the procurement process by releasing a request for offer (RFO) to the larger vendor community for software and services in the coming months.

The full report is available publicly on the DIR website.
