From 0 To DevOps in 80 Days: The Dynatrace Transformation Story!

Market disruption can spark innovation and radical change, and DevOps — as a set of best practices — has emerged from software industry disruptions. Why?

You can now configure Dynatrace to proactively alert you if any process within a specific process group goes offline or crashes. Dynatrace has also long been able to recognize the unavailability of specific processes as the root cause of certain response-time issues and other problems.
