Weekly wrap: AI disruption, Google Cloud monitoring, new customer video

We’re sitting pretty alongside the world’s AI heavyweights

This week Forbes published an eye-catching article that looked at the top 6 AI technologies that will help or destroy jobs in the future.

#5 on that list was virtual assistants and how this technology is having a big impact within big business. Dynatrace features in a list of 10 vendors pioneering this space which includes the likes of Google, Amazon, IBM, Samsung, Microsoft and Apple.

How’s that for brand association?

Share our tweet about the news here.

Or you can share our LinkedIn update from here.

Dynatrace goes from strength to strength in the cloud.

At the end of last week we were announced a proud launch partner in the AWS IOT marketplace.

If you haven’t caught it yet, have a look at Harald Zeitlhofer’s blog post. It calls out some of our standout IOT monitoring capabilities, like:

  • The fact that we can see the availability of individual devices AND the global distribution of those devices
  • We monitor end-to-end transactions – from the IOT device, all the way back from the cloud service, to the end user.

Pretty sweet hey?

THEN, we announced just a couple of days ago that we’re also perfectly primed for Google Cloud too!

This means Dynatrace has everyone’s cloud monitoring needs covered, no matter who your preferred cloud partner is. Jump over here to read a quick summary on the depth and breadth of our cloud capabilities.

“We chose Dynatrace over AppD and New Relic” – new customer shout out 

Great news – we recently launched a new customer video with a Fortune 500 financial services firm. Big thanks to Assistant IT Director, Mark Johnson, for sharing why his company loves Dynatrace over and above our competition.

Here are some grabs from the interview or watch the video below:

  • “Dynatrace has given us visibility into our business critical apps that we’ve never had before”
  • “Dynatrace installed within hours, as promised, and was impressive right out of the gate”
  • “The data that Dynatrace provides means we can now make informed financial decisions impacting our infrastructure and our applications.”

Our Perform world tour moves into final stage

Virgin Money, Travis Perkins, CooP, TDBank, StarHub, the largest government organisation in Australia… these are just some of the standout customers that took to the stage during our Perform events round the world, which departs APAC this week and heads for Moscow, Brussels and Johannesburg.

What’s been super cool is that nearly every customer has highlighted how blown away they are with our AI capabilities that make light work of digital complexity.

Here’s a quick video I shot with VP of Marketing, Dave Anderson, overlooking the impressive city skyline of Singapore. This was taken candidly just after the local Perform event when we were reflecting on how great the energy is that surrounds our events, teams and local customer stories.

Want more behind the scenes from around the world? Then head to our Perform social wall.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Existing Big Data solutions are mainly focused on the discovery and analysis of data.

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...
