AppDynamics is a company that focuses on managing the availability and the performance of apps inside the data center and across cloud computing environments. It supports .NET, PHP and Java applications. Today, it was announced that AppDynamics now offers real-time insights for business managers.
AppDynamics has updated its app monitoring software to provide real-time information. With this new update, AppDynamics now offers real-time insights for business managers that will truly make a difference in how the app is used by its clients.
The new update was announced at the user conference yesterday in Las Vegas, calling it the Fall 2014 Release. Along with the fact that AppDynamics now offers real-time insights for business managers, the update also features new collaboration capabilities and improvements that will allow users to keep current with the latest Web development technologies.
Application performance monitoring (APM) systems allows software agents to be added by developers to their apps so that they can collect operational and performance data. This data can be forwarded to IT admins who will analyze it in order to find errors, outages and latencies.
In the last years, it was observed by these APM companies that the data collected by their systems can also be useful to business managers. Jonah Kowall commented:
[the information provides the ability to see] every interaction within the software stack, from the end user through the business logic.
AppDynamics now offers real-time insights for business managers and the new feature is called Application Analytics. This will help business leaders see, for example, which features of their app are most used by people. The updated app will also be able to calculate the cost of an app outage, if the situation arises.
With their new update that offers real-time insights, AppDynamics is giving business managers a huge helping hand, allowing them to see which apps perform and which don’t. This will help them make better decisions about their investments in the future.
AppDynamics has a “lite” version of its APM product that is free. It can run as a hosted service or on-premise. If you want the Pro version, then you need to know that it starts at $180 per month.
