This Whitepaper looks into the importance of ensuring today's  application performance and reliability at unprecedented scale. Conventional IT Operations teams are increasingly unable to ramp their manual activities to keep up with the rapidly growing extent and complexity of modern software applications – and the demand placed upon them by users. 

This is true for all enterprises, as every company is now a software-driven company. For example, leading US retail bank JP Morgan Chase now serves over 24.8 million mobile banking users, up from 10 million in 20121. The numbers are even more dramatic for the famous web-scale platforms. Traffic to global #1 website Google has approximately doubled over the last five years to more than 28 billion visits per month. Meanwhile, the complexity of Facebook’s core application has grown over the past 5 years from around 9 million lines of code to over 60 million.
