The Future of Application Performance Monitoring With AppDynamics APM Platform
People and devices are more connected than ever, raising the bar for customer experience and the brands behind them, meaning that enterprises must innovate quickly and applications are the driving force.
Dealing with new challenges arising as a result of next-generation architectures, the AppDynamics APM Platform by Cisco enables management and monitoring of the application delivery ecosystem, ranging from mobile/browser client network requests to backend databases/servers and more.
The fast emergence of challenges is underpinned by the fact that in the last year alone, research indicated that as many as 84% of consumers have experienced problems with digital services, proving that many organizations are failing to consistently deliver the high-quality digital experiences that their customers now expect and demand. In addition, the majority of respondents were far less tolerant of problems from digital services than they were two years ago, and they’re now far more likely to take decisive action; deleting applications, turning to the competition, and sharing their negative experiences far and wide.
With the number of apps continuing to explode, the landscape offers an exciting opportunity for any organization, but that opportunity comes with a high degree of complexity that often reveals itself in fragmentation, extra expenses, and unexpected vulnerabilities. According to the latest forecasts there will be a 50% growth in applications in the next two years, 47% of apps will be built as microservices, and there will be 20 dependencies for each app.
These trends are also present in Hungary, where long-time Cisco partner NTT became one of the first companies to begin selling and supporting AppDynamics . In addition, NTT Hungary as a regional VPM Competence Center also offers consultation and delivery services for the system as well.
Delivering the simplicity, visibility, and deep diagnostics that Ops and Dev teams require, AppDynamics APM offers a global view across your application landscape and enables quick navigation through the distributed application into the call graphs and exception reports generated on individual hosts.
The solution is easy to configure and deploy, automatically discovers business transactions, consumes little production overhead, monitors every line of code, and dynamically baselines performance to proactively identify and resolve application performance issues before they impact customers and the business.
AppDynamics allows clients to auto-discover and monitor end-to-end business transaction performance, with transaction tag and follow. The solution can also be used to automatically discover application topology and interdependencies including external web services, and trace key business transactions based on production application behavior.
The platform also offers integration with incident and alert systems ServiceNow, PagerDuty, and Jira and is compatible with all popular programming languages and frameworks including Java, .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python and C/C++. Even the most complex enterprise platforms and solutions such as JMS, queuing technologies, TIBCO, and WebMethods, are covered.
The solution’s Central Nervous System for IT feature empowers businesses with AI-powered insights and automation that help them take the right action, at exactly the right time. Using machine learning and artificial intelligence, the system’s Cognition Engine automates anomaly detection and root cause analysis, helping businesses troubleshoot quickly by automatically identifying the root cause of issues, down to the exact line of code, function, thread, or database call.
Setting up the system is easy as well, because the Hungarian team of NTT also provides companies with training about using the information provided by the monitoring system for proactive purposes in addition to the quickest possible problem identification and solution, both in the field of operation and development.
