APM Monitoring with Scout APM

Why do you need Application Performance Monitoring?

Performance Monitoring is a critical part of meeting application SLAs. Further, ensuring your product databases and API endpoints are fully optimized plays a major role in ensuring customers choose your solution over a competing offer. After all, if a user can't obtain data quickly and efficiently, they may look elsewhere.

It offers an intuitive and developer-friendly solution that allows you to quickly identify application performance issues.
