AppDynamics Spring ‘17 Enables APM for More Developers

There have long been silos of information and talent within enterprises as each team works on their part of the big puzzle, building applications to move the business forward. However, the pieces of the puzzle are getting bigger in number with the adoption of microservices and multi-cloud strategies, and more complex to assemble as multiple frameworks and programming languages coexist within an application. In this complex ecosystem, developers, operations, and business teams do their best to align and anticipate what the requirements and interdependencies are, but many enterprises don’t realize the full picture.

To build a successful business in this era of high velocity, high customer expectations, and increasing complexity, enterprises must create trusted teams across business, development, and operations (BizDevOps) to execute at peak effectiveness. Today, AppDynamics releases its Spring ‘17 release with features and capabilities that will enable closer collaboration between these teams.

Developer Toolkit

As part of Spring ‘17, the new Developer Toolkit brings APM into more stages of the software development lifecycle to let developers optimize for performance early in their process. Business Transaction (BT) developer mode enables a single BT to be isolated and captured so developers can test specific functionality or microservices without artificially increasing the overhead of the entire application. BT developer mode enables them to develop and release faster with less risk by tuning functionality early. Using Business Transaction Live Mode, operations and development can use sampled live application data to fine tune their BTs and ensure all business relevant values and interactions are captured.

For mobile developers, Spring ‘17’s toolkit brings an arsenal of new capabilities, including Xamarin support, allowing them to release these mobile applications faster and with confidence, having performance and crash information for this new framework. Additionally, mobile developers get automatically configured smart alerts that identify new crash types on each version of the application and alert them with aggregated root cause as well as each individual user and session impacted to resolve faster.

The AppDynamics Developer Toolkit also brings support for Go language for developers to instrument their applications. This new capability allows for full visibility into the entire application tiers so every single customer interaction is traced from touch to code to infrastructure.

Deeper and wider with Enterprise iQ

Enterprise iQ is at the core of the AppDynamics App iQ platform and allows it to scale with the largest and most complex environments. In Spring ‘17, we’re expanding agent and license administration capabilities to support our largest deployments with over 100,000 agents. The new Universal Agent for Java and Server allow for ease of deployment and upgrades across large or dynamic environments. New license management capabilities streamline administration across enterprises and give the ability to set license quotas and view consumption across the organization.

Bringing Business iQ to development

AppDynamics’ new Spring ‘17 brings a wealth of new features and capabilities to help teams build trust and align initiatives. From tying mobile application quality to business outcomes using the Developer Toolkit to providing streamlined administration and management across the largest and more complex environments with Enterprise iQ, the Spring ‘17 release focuses on enabling application success across the organization. With the App iQ platform, enterprises are able to stay at the forefront of innovation and release faster and with less risk to stay ahead of the competition.
