Imagine that it’s 9 a.m. in England on a Monday morning. Customers are going to start hitting our CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace.  If there are web application or connectivity issues interfering with the digital customer experience in England, or anywhere in Europe, Dynatrace Synthetic Monitoring will let us know. Our friendly test bots all over the globe poke our marketplace to identify poor user experience with pinpoint accuracy. At the same time, Dynatrace reduces risk by measuring and comparing performance in every build and test, in conjunction with real browser synthetics from around the world.

Actionable Insights

Why Dynatrace? It’s experienced. It’s been around for a decade. It’s the Gartner Magic Quadrant leader*. To top it off, they are a Centurylink Software Alliance Program partner and a solid team player that delivers real-time results 24/7, across platforms and geographies. 

An Omnichannel Solution

As I look beyond our own use case we know that for retailers, the ability to deploy across multiple platforms is critical to ensure a flawless digital customer experience. They care greatly about why customers are abandoning their shopping carts? Was it a technology problem? A network issue? Connectivity?

Similarly, for financial services downtime means lost revenue. Financial institutions use solutions across the board. Whether deployed externally for mobile banking or online banking websites, to internal software programs used during face-to-face loan processing, the customer experience equals real dollars.
