As part of our recent release announcement, AppDynamics has improved the functionality for application owners that are concerned with the high-level impact of performance on the applications they oversee.  In this blog we’ll take a look at some exciting functionality of the Application Intelligence platform that delivers value for application owners.

Application analytics (beta)

With the announcement of our application analytics beta program, customers now receive unprecedented visibility into the business data that is contained inside business transactions and log files.  Go deeper than simply monitoring performance. Explore the details of each and every transaction including user experience, operational metrics, and correlate that with business data associated with that particular business transaction.  Best of all, there is no administration overhead because there are no changes to application code or infrastructure necessary.

View revenue figures in real-time so you can be notified the moment something abnormal happens.

Smart dashboards

Managing and monitoring large deployments with thousands of nodes and tiers can be overwhelming for the APM professional. Creating a separate dashboard for each individual node and tier that allows them to monitor them individually is a near impossible task.

In this release AppDynamics introduces a powerful dashboard templating engine that auto-generate dashboards based on predefined characteristics of the nodes or tiers. This feature enhances monitoring productivity by making dashboards reusable without having to manually create individual dashboards for each node.

Create & associate dashboards with tiers / nodes once…

Real-time business metrics

Today’s leaders are tasked with making decisions on business data that is typically batch processed and often days, sometimes even weeks old.  Not having real-time visibility into the business affects application owners’ ability to make data-driven decisions.

AppDynamics allows customers to collect business metrics from your applications in real-time.  Metrics such as revenue, orders, deposits, signups, etc. can be easily extracted from production applications and displayed in real-time in an easy to digest way.

View operational metrics correlated automatically with business metrics like revenue to see how application performance affects the business.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’.

Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
