Hot from the lab: Latest releases center on unification, scalability and powerful analytics that tie back to business metrics.

Innovation has always been at the core of the Dynatrace culture. We invest heavily in our product development so that our 500+ global R&D experts continue to break new ground in APM.

This is an exciting post for me, as I get to share highlights of the most recent advancements.

I even shot a quick video that hits some of the big changes.

Visually Complete

Visually Complete puts you in the user’s seat and captures the precise visual experience of all your real users.
