AppDynamics Announces Powerful Analytics Solution for the Software-Defined Business

'Transaction Analytics' Delivers Real-Time Business and Operational Intelligence So Businesses Can Continually Optimize Applications, Drive Revenue and Improve Operations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- AppDynamics, the application intelligence leader for software-defined businesses, today announced AppDynamics Transaction Analytics, an important new solution allowing businesses to see in real-time the commercial or business value of user-transactions and how they correlate with operational data and overall application performance. The traditional "siloed" approach for optimizing in-production applications in real-time and for managing IT Infrastructure is no longer fit-for-purpose. Business transactions, and the business context they contain, are now the primary unit of management as opposed to managing servers and physical infrastructure availability.

AppDynamics Transaction Analytics strengthens AppDynamics existing operational analytics and real-time business metrics capabilities. Available as a cloud service, hybrid or on-premise solution, Transaction Analytics enables customers to maximize revenue and optimize business operations. Transaction Analytics extracts the rich contextual transaction data contained within every customer transaction to reveal real-time, actionable operational and business intelligence.

Transaction Analytics is an integral and core component of the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform also announced today. The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform is the industry's first scalable, secure and lightweight platform providing real-time management, automation and analytics for enterprise applications.

Missing from today's business intelligence and analytics solutions is the automatic correlation of business and operational data. AppDynamics Transaction Analytics breaks new ground by bringing to market a powerful analytics solution that is real-time, massively scalable, easily implemented. Additionally, it requires no change to the application code or infrastructure. The solution will enable companies to use contextually based transaction data to make better IT operations and business decisions.

Extracting Business Intelligence Among Millions of Lines of Code
Applications built for today's modern enterprise contain millions of lines of code within complex, multi-tiered, distributed architectures. These new application frameworks leverage a combination of cloud, agile development, service oriented architecture, mobile devices and big data databases. Currently available analytics solutions fail to extract in-production application intelligence from all transactions across all nodes of these next-generation apps.

As an example, current monitoring-only solutions might be able to identify the root cause of a performance problem, but are unable to identify the resulting business impact of poor performance in terms of lost revenue or the exact list of users impacted. In addition, these solutions do not give visibility into the distribution of this lost revenue across different marketing campaigns, product categories, partner services etc. Other solutions may be able to collect log data, but don't collect transaction payload information or other application performance metrics and carry no context for making intelligent IT operations and business decisions.

AppDynamics Transaction Analytics does all this and more by automatically collecting the data being processed by distributed, mission-critical applications in real-time and then enables users to intuitively analyze the resulting dataset.

"Every company is now a technology company," said Jyoti Bansal, founder and CEO of AppDynamics. "In the age of the software-defined business, the ability to develop, test, deploy, operate and analyze applications within highly complex and distributed architectures is inextricably tied to the success of any company. Our breakthrough transaction analytics product provides insight into how users interact with the application and provides real-time information regarding the overall health of the business to optimize IT operations and business strategy and maximize revenue."

Features of AppDynamics Transaction Analytics:

  • Comprehensive business intelligence extraction from live application data without any changes to application or the underlying infrastructure
  • Interactive visualizations seamlessly slice and dice data for fast and robust analysis
  • Robust search capabilities provide the ability to quickly and easily zero in on any specific transaction or log
  • Provides full coverage and comprehensive visibility across the application environment
  • Powerful cross-platform integration auto-correlates performance metrics and reports
  • Infinitely scalable data stores support the needs of today's large, complex enterprise environments

The benefits of automation are well documented; it increases productivity, cuts cost and minimizes errors. It eliminates repetitive manual tasks, freeing us up to be more innovative. By that logic, surely, we should automate everything possible, right? So, is attempting to automate everything a sensible - even feasible - goal? In a word: no. Consider this your short guide as to what to automate and what not to automate.
We just came off of a review of a product that handles both containers and virtual machines in the same interface. Under the covers, implementation of containers defaults to LXC, though recently Docker support was added. When reading online, or searching for information, increasingly we see “Container Management” products listed as competitors to Docker, when in reality things like Rocket, LXC/LXD, and Virtualization are Dockers competitors. After doing some looking around, we have decided tha...
It’s “time to move on from DevOps and continuous delivery.” This was the provocative title of a recent article in ZDNet, in which Kelsey Hightower, staff developer advocate at Google Cloud Platform, suggested that “software shops should have put these concepts into action years ago.” Reading articles like this or listening to talks at most DevOps conferences might make you think that we’re entering a post-DevOps world. But vast numbers of organizations still struggle to start and drive transfo...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
The nature of test environments is inherently temporary—you set up an environment, run through an automated test suite, and then tear down the environment. If you can reduce the cycle time for this process down to hours or minutes, then you may be able to cut your test environment budgets considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for t...
Many enterprise and government IT organizations are realizing the benefits of cloud computing by extending IT delivery and management processes across private and public cloud services. But they are often challenged with balancing the need for centralized cloud governance without stifling user-driven innovation. This strategy requires an approach that fundamentally reshapes how IT is delivered today, shifting the focus from infrastructure to services aggregation, and mixing and matching the bes...
Cavirin Systems has just announced C2, a SaaS offering designed to bring continuous security assessment and remediation to hybrid environments, containers, and data centers. Cavirin C2 is deployed within Amazon Web Services (AWS) and features a flexible licensing model for easy scalability and clear pay-as-you-go pricing. Although native to AWS, it also supports assessment and remediation of virtual or container instances within Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or on-premise. By dr...

High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, discussed how by using ne...
"CA has been doing a lot of things in the area of DevOps. Now we have a complete set of tool sets in order to enable customers to go all the way from planning to development to testing down to release into the operations," explained Aruna Ravichandran, Vice President of Global Marketing and Strategy at CA Technologies, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Let's do a visualization exercise. Imagine it's December 31, 2018, and you're ringing in the New Year with your friends and family. You think back on everything that you accomplished in the last year: your company's revenue is through the roof thanks to the success of your product, and you were promoted to Lead Developer. 2019 is poised to be an even bigger year for your company because you have the tools and insight to scale as quickly as demand requires. You're a happy human, and it's not just...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
identify the sources of event storms and performance anomalies will require automated, real-time root-cause analysis. I think Enterprise Management Associates said it well: “The data and metrics collected at instrumentation points across the application ecosystem are essential to performance monitoring and root cause analysis. However, analytics capable of transforming data and metrics into an application-focused report or dashboards are what separates actual application monitoring from relat...
"Opsani helps the enterprise adopt containers, help them move their infrastructure into this modern world of DevOps, accelerate the delivery of new features into production, and really get them going on the container path," explained Ross Schibler, CEO of Opsani, and Peter Nickolov, CTO of Opsani, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
DevOps teams have more on their plate than ever. As infrastructure needs grow, so does the time required to ensure that everything's running smoothly. This makes automation crucial - especially in the server and network monitoring world. Server monitoring tools can save teams time by automating server management and providing real-time performance updates. As budgets reset for the New Year, there is no better time to implement a new server monitoring tool (or re-evaluate your current solution)....
While we understand Agile as a means to accelerate innovation, manage uncertainty and cope with ambiguity, many are inclined to think that it conflicts with the objectives of traditional engineering projects, such as building a highway, skyscraper or power plant. These are plan-driven and predictive projects that seek to avoid any uncertainty. This type of thinking, however, is short-sighted. Agile approaches are valuable in controlling uncertainty because they constrain the complexity that ste...
"This all sounds great. But it's just not realistic." This is what a group of five senior IT executives told me during a workshop I held not long ago. We were working through an exercise on the organizational characteristics necessary to successfully execute a digital transformation, and the group was doing their ‘readout.' The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was reali...
"We're developing a software that is based on the cloud environment and we are providing those services to corporations and the general public," explained Seungmin Kim, CEO/CTO of SM Systems Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud revolution in enterprises has very clearly crossed the phase of proof-of-concepts into a truly mainstream adoption. One of most popular enterprise-wide initiatives currently going on are “cloud migration” programs of some kind or another. Finding business value for these programs is not hard to fathom – they include hyperelasticity in infrastructure consumption, subscription based models, and agility derived from rapid speed of deployment of applications. These factors will continue to...
