AppDynamics Solves Visibility Gap Between Traditional Infrastructure and Cloud Environments With New Portfolio Of Cloud Native Solutions

Posted in Commentary with tags on October 28, 2020 by itnerd

AppDynamics, a part of Cisco and the world’s #1 APM solution and full-stack, business centric observability platform, today released new capabilities designed to help IT teams build cloud native applications with confidence by connecting hybrid cloud application performance to business performance in real-time. Through a context-sensitive visualization interface, correlated insights across domains and intelligent resource optimization, enterprise IT leaders will be able to reduce noise and surface only the most business-critical information and insights across their unique hybrid environments.

Technologists are adopting cloud services faster than ever before in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the increased pressure it has placed on IT.  While new cloud technologies have delivered flexibility and enabled innovation for businesses as they seek to deliver seamless customer and employee digital experiences, they have also led to more complex and distributed application architectures. This has created huge challenges for technologists in enterprise organizations who typically rely on many traditional IT systems to run their businesses but now operate in a hybrid cloud environment. As IT teams adopt more cloud native services to meet the digital demands of their users, the challenge to refactor applications and design new features at scale becomes increasingly challenging due to a lack of holistic visibility and business context across the multiple environments.

AppDynamics’ new portfolio of cloud capabilities closes that visibility gap and allows users to connect traditional systems with cloud native services, all in the context of business outcomes.

These new capabilities include:

●      Full Stack Observability Platform: A new data platform designed to increase visibility and seamlessly ingest data from multiple sources including AppDynamics agent-based data, open-source tools and agent-less services and correlate the data across domains.

●      Cloud Data Collector: An extensible architecture for capturing and automating data collection and correlating cloud services with application code, user experience and business impact to provide full stack, context rich observability. Starting with Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) monitoring and observability service, Amazon CloudWatch, and then expanding to incorporate additional public and private cloud environments.

●      Cloud Native Visualization: A new visualization interface that reduces the complexity of monitoring cloud-native applications with a context-sensitive, easy to understand, visual representation.

●      Intelligent Application Resourcing and Cost Optimization: An integration with CiscoIntersight Workload Optimizer will transform operations from reactive to proactive by optimizing infrastructure resources and costs in hybrid cloud environments.

In the crowded HR technology market, a flawless customer experience is how businesses are staying competitive. Jobvite – known for its best-of-breed applicant tracking system (ATS) and recruiting software – understands the importance of investing in cloud technologies as a way to support the digital experiences they offer to customers.
