The top 5 reasons you can’t compare AppDynamics to Dynatrace for APM

When customers are selecting an APM solution we at Dynatrace are often shortlisted alongside Cisco AppDynamics. I’ve heard all sorts of stories as to the claims, half-truths, and false statements that are shared to try and sway the customer.

Should the Twelve-Factor App now be Fifteen-Factor?

Dynatrace is proud to be sponsoring and offering a complimentary version of the O’Reilly eBook, ”Beyond the Twelve-Factor App”. The original Twelve-Factor App framework was created in 2012 by developers at early cloud pioneer Heroku as a set of rules and guidelines for organizations building modern web applications that run “as a service.” The framework was inspired by Martin Fowler’s work… read more

Just Do It: A snapshot of APM & Unified Enterprise Monitoring

As Bob learned in the first posting in this three-part series previous blog, technology alone can’t deliver a healthy lifestyle.

Recently, we’ve made some significant improvements to Dynatrace University (DTU), based on customer feedback along with information gathered electronically from actual customer experiences, and based on our own digital transformation. We had three goals in mind: innovate, optimize customer experience, and modernize our operations.

What’s that? #whatsappdown?

I love the outcry that surrounds a digital service outage. It’s almost as though someone has turned off the oxygen for a few moments. So, it comes as no surprise that everyone went a bit crazy when Whatsapp went down for a few hours on Wednesday night.
