THE HISTORY OF APMDIGEST
APMdigest was originally named BSMdigest. BSMdigest operated as a web publication periodically from 2006-2009. Pete Goldin joined in 2010 as Editor-in-Chief and relaunched BSMdigest in May 2010.
In November 2011 the publication was renamed APMdigest to reflect a growing focus on Application Performance Management, while still continuing to cover Business Service Management issues.
APMdigest has featured original content from and interviews with every major vendor in the market, including BMC, IBM Tivoli, CA, HP and Compuware; APM innovators including AppDynamics and New Relic; and the industry's leading consultants and analysts.
In September 2014, APMdigest launched a companion website, The APM Buyers Guide, at www.apmbuyersguide.com. The APM Buyers Guide is a directory of the vendors and their product offerings in the Application Performance Management (APM) market, as well as related markets including Business Service Management (BSM), End User Experience Management (EUEM), IT Operations Analytics (ITOA), Logging Analysis, Performance and Availability Monitoring, Network Performance Management (NPM), and Application Testing.
