When you think of applications, you might think of your smartphone and the apps you use to access social media, track your workouts, or watch videos. But an icon on your phone is really just an interface to an application. Applications typically run on a server located in a data center. Like a great dessert, there are a lot of ingredients that make an application work. It needs a network, a database, and a server with memory and resources. These ingredients are what make up the application stack. A problem with any one component within the stack will impact the application’s overall performance.
When a smartphone app doesn’t work it’s annoying. But when a federal agency’s app doesn’t work, there can be consequences. Charles Fullwood, Senior Director of Software Solutions at Force 3, shares why federal agencies should monitor their applications in NextGov.
