5 Reasons To Visit AppDynamics at Gartner Symposium

What an incredible year it has been so far at AppDynamics. From our almost-IPO to our $3.7 billion acquisition by Cisco, and most recently – the unveiling of our vision to enable CIOs to drive business strategy and growth (read more here). It has been the most exciting year of my career.

And the excitement continues this upcoming week as the AppDynamics team and I will be at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo from November 5th-9th in Barcelona, Spain. If you’re attending, we would love to have a conversation around your IT and digital business initiatives.

Our stand is number 919, located in the Data Centre and Operations area. Come visit our stand and we promise that in 5 minutes you and your team will:

#1 – Learn how we help the largest enterprises in Europe with their digital strategy

Enterprises such as ABN AMRO, Tesco, Nasdaq, UBS and easyJet are all using the AppDynamics App iQ platform to help them drive innovation, as well as improve application reliability and customer experience. As Paul McEwen, CIO, Technology Services at UBS stated:

“AppDynamics platform helps us achieve some of our strategic IT goals – updating our platforms, increasing stability, boosting operational efficiency and agility, and creating a consistent user experience across all of our services.”

One of the guiding principles of our platform has always been to make sure that adoption is easy and that we provide fast return on investment. In order to this, we start by taking the time to listen to your priorities to figure out how we can help.

#2 – Know why milliseconds matter when it comes to app performance in production

No one likes to wait, right? We live in an increasingly time-poor society and our tolerance for delays continues to diminish. When it comes to the speed of web or mobile applications, it is often stated that the sweet spot for transaction response times should be between 2 to 3 seconds. But it’s not that easy. Our perception about performance is formed by those digital services that we use everyday. In fact, Google found that 250 milliseconds is the magic number for competitive advantage on the Web.

One of the unique abilities of AppDynamics is that we monitor every user and all of their actions. We combine this data into a consistent unit of measurement – the Business Transaction, and this means that you always have clear visibility of how application performance aligns to user expectations.

#3 – See how easy it is to visualize digital metrics that your business will care about

One of the primary and critically important metrics for the digital business is Mean Time To Repair (MTTR). Simply put, if your applications are down, you are closed for business.

We have numerous stories to share about how we have helped enterprises around the world reduce MTTR from hours to minutes. But as a digital leader, you have to think more broadly than this. It’s not just about metrics that show how well you’re supporting the business, but also how you’re driving it. This means you need to be able to easily show how applications are driving business outcomes such as revenue, how every release is increasing user engagement, etc. With Business iQ, we make this easy and provide you and your team with the ability to report these metrics in real-time, and to make insights that drive further innovation.

#4 – Understand how to improve collaboration between Business, Dev, and IT Ops teams

One of the keys to digital business success is to move fast and fail fast – and this is a major driver of DevOps initiatives. This doesn’t mean breaking things in production, but making sure DevOps teams can spot emerging application issues quickly before they have widespread impact on user experience or business performance.

Our App iQ platform has rich diagnostic capabilities that pinpoint the root cause of performance problems down to the code level. We make this easy to achieve within 3 clicks, and we can show you exactly how!

What’s also important is that we provide context as to how the emerging issue is impacting business performance (e.g. revenue, types of users impacted, location, etc.). We also make it simple to create dashboards that display information for different audiences within the enterprise, allowing for seamless collaboration so that the next appropriate action can be taken.

#5 – View one single source of truth to digital performance in the enterprise

“Now every company is a software company” is a much used, famous, and true statement. The rapid pace of technology innovation over the past decade has resulted in simpler, more convenient access to services via applications (e.g. mobile, IoT) but conversely the back-end application architecture has become more complex with cloud platforms, container technologies, and microservices.

The result is that the smallest performance issue originating from back-end architecture can have the most dramatic impact on your business. In the digital enterprise, having multiple monitoring and management tools only serve to compound this issue. However, with AppDynamics, we provide real-time, unified application and business performance monitoring through one UI. This includes the monitoring and performance visibility of microservices, containers, databases, public/private cloud and with our latest release, IoT services.

So please stop by our stand – we look forward to chatting with you. If you’re an existing AppDynamics customer and are attending, we’d love to catch up and hear how you’re using our platform and share recent product updates. We’re at stand number 919 in the Data Centre and Operations area of the Expo.

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally.

DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
