Weekly Wrap: Visually Complete, the UFO is hacked, Forbes on AI start ups, Openstack monitoring 1,2,3…and more

I’m continually surprised as I pull together these weekly wraps just how much is done in a week.

Here’s a quick video summary of the latest installment, and read on for more details:

Visually Complete, the most accurate performance user experience metric, available in Dynatrace RUM and Synthetic.

Traditional web performance metrics primarily focus on load times and resource sizes. But these attributes typically aren’t the best indicators of user experience. Visually Complete is a user experience metric that identifies the moment in time when users perceive that all the visual elements of a page have completely loaded. Because this is a measure of user perception, it is an ideal measure of user experience. For the first time, you can capture these metrics in real time and in the real world — no lab setting required.

Here’s a customer story with Neiman Marcus that talks to the value of visually complete, and some additional resources:

The Dynatrace Pipeline State UFO turns up at Velocity San Jose with Study.com

Andi Grabner recently attended Velocity, in San Jose, and was surprised on the stand to be met by Greg Stark, Sr. Software Engineer at Study.com. Greg tracked Andi down, as he wanted to share his company’s own Dynatrace Pipeline State UFO story, which is really cool.

You should take a moment to watch the video here:

Dynatrace “quick start” demo with an AI powered voice assistant #davis

In the above video, I do a quick demo to showcase our AI powered, full stack monitoring using an Amazon Alexa voice assistant (who we call davis). It’s worth listening right until the end of the video to hear what davis thought of my attempt.

Do Government organisations embrace DevOps, Cloud and Microservices?

Recently Andi Grabner was invited to present his view on DevOps at the ATARC – Federal DevOps Summit in Washington, DC.  Little did he know that his assumption of government agencies lagging in the adoption of the latest technologies and practices was WRONG.

This is a great post that summarises all the key takeaways including this classic quote ‘It’s like living in North Korea and finally seeing the world!”
