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. Combined with Speed Index, which shows how fast your page loads, and synthetic transaction data, you can now see exactly how digital performance is impacting revenue, bounce rates and conversions. Available July.

Enhanced visuals – make everyone a performance expert

The Dynatrace experience has never been more equipped to unite teams around the metrics that matter. Fresh dashboards and our AI-powered analytics gives everyone in your business precise answers to complex problems – stay high level or dive into the detail – everyone can be a performance expert.
