AppNeta Introduces User Satisfaction Dashboard for Managing the Overall End-User Experience of Business-Critical Web Applications
|By Business Wire
|June 16, 2014 09:05 AM EDT
the leader in performance and availability insight for business
critical web applications, today announced its integrated User
Satisfaction Dashboard (USD) as a new capability of its application
performance management (APM) solution. USD delivers a unique view of
application performance by integrating and scoring application
performance across the entire application transaction. By aggregating
performance results from the application code, real-user monitoring and
synthetic transaction monitoring, companies will see improved end user
satisfaction and decreased operational costs.
The User Satisfaction Dashboard provides a qualitative user satisfaction
scoring mechanism that leverages the industry standard Apdex™
application performance index to provide a single integrated view
across what has previously been treated as three disparate performance
areas. USD’s Apdex scoring implementation goes beyond any other
solutions on the market by allowing distinct sets of application and/or
user transactions to be pre-defined, measured and scored together via
As a key element of AppNeta’s full stack APM solution, the User
Satisfaction Dashboard provides development and operations professionals
with a single integrated performance dashboard for managing the
performance of all five major web development platforms (Java, .NET,
PHP, Python and Ruby). Most development shops run a variety of tools and
platforms, but until now, achieving deep insight into the performance
and availability of an application required a developer to run a
different tool or different flavor of the same tool for each platform an
application touches. With USD, Development or Operations professionals
can monitor the performance and end-user satisfaction of their web apps
simultaneously across any mixture of the major platforms. Plus, they can
do it using industry standard Apdex scoring from one integrated
“AppNeta is the only solution to provide a SaaS-based full stack
performance view, from the application through the network to the end
user,” said Matt Stevens, President and CTO at AppNeta. “AppNeta
addresses the needs of Development and IT professionals who build,
operate, and support business-critical and custom web applications in
production and who support the users of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
based external applications.”
“Optimizing the user experience is the most important focus for any
company. When applications perform well, users are happy and the
business progresses,” said Eric Richard, VP of Engineering at HubSpot.
“AppNeta is instrumental in helping our developers provide the
performance and stability that our users have come to expect."
“There are many ways to measure application and infrastructure
performance, but in the end, the satisfaction that end users and
customers have with their application experiences is perhaps the most
important way to gauge true success,” said Jim Frey, vice president of
research at Enterprise Management Associates. “AppNeta recognizes this,
and has developed the new User Satisfaction Dashboard to pull together a
single, unified, comprehensive view into user experience that leverages
the many contributing viewpoints available from across the AppNeta full
stack APM solution.”
“APM solutions need to focus not only on how the application is
performing but the end-user’s level of satisfaction with its
performance,” said Bernd Harzog, CEO at APMExperts.com and analyst at
The Virtualization Practice. “AppNeta understands the importance of
gaining visibility into the end-user experience and providing a broad
view that incorporates all performance areas.”
Gartner Perspective on End-User Experience Monitoring
Gartner analyst Jonah Kowall states in his July 29, 2013 report, “How
to Cut Through Vendor Hype and Make Sense of the Availability and
Performance Monitoring Market”:
“APM is an area of intense innovation and customer demand within the
availability and performance monitoring markets. This demand is driven
by the need for IT operations to understand and diagnose issues within
increasingly complex application environments that result from the use
of ever expanding technology sets. These applications are consumed by
end users, so focusing on end-user experience provides the highest value
and best indicator of issues as well as the scope of their impact across
the user community.”
AppNeta was recognized for its leadership by inclusion in the 2013
Gartner Magic Quadrant for APM.
To see a demo of the new User Satisfaction Dashboard’s capabilities,
visit booths #101 or #412 at Velocity, June 24-26, in Santa Clara, CA,

The AppNeta USD is available next month and will come standard with
AppNeta’s TraceView module. TraceView pricing begins at $119 per
application host per month.
AppNeta is the Full Stack Application Performance Management (APM)
technology leader, providing integrated performance visibility that
spans the application code, through the network, to the end user.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
