THE HISTORY OF APMDIGEST
APMdigest was originally named BSMdigest, operating 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. Since that time, APMdigest has become the industry's leading online publication and blog focusing specifically on APM and related technologies.
In September 2014, APMdigest launched a companion website, APM Buyers Guide, at www.apmbuyersguide.com. 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), Log Analysis, Performance and Availability Monitoring, Network Performance Management (NPM), and Application Testing.
Although funded by vendor sponsorships, APMdigest and APM Buyers Guide are completely independently owned and operated by Pete Goldin and Goldin Media.
