Overview: The Apdex Alliance, founded in 2004, is a group of companies collaborating to define and promote an application performance metric called Apdex, a numerical measure of user satisfaction with the performance of enterprise applications, which reflects the effectiveness of IT investments in contributing to business objectives. It was designed to convert measurements into insights about user satisfaction by specifying a uniform way to analyze and report on the degree to which measured performance meets user expectations. To support the professional interests of members, the Alliance published a blog and created a series of educational Webinars.
