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. Likewise, having a successful APM program isn’t just about seeing what’s happening on a computer screen; it’s about doing something about it. You have to align your strategy, culture, people and processes with your digital business goals to reach the summit — and that’s not easy. So, what does that kind of … read more

What’s new in Dynatrace University 1 of 3: Our own digital transformation story

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. Of course, since these are the same pillars that Dynatrace itself is built on, it made sense that this is also how we should align DTU. … read more

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. The usual scenario played out – people turned to social media to vent, and to laugh, and media were on the hunt for … read more

Building a hamster fitness tracker using Dynatrace API

Hamsters are nocturnal rodents and, therefore, are mostly active during the night. My boyfriend and I do have a hamster, and curiosity led us to start thinking about how we could track some of his activities, specifically how far he is able to run within a night. So we decided to turn the hamster wheel into a fitness tracker using the Dynatrace API. Basically, we wanted to capture all the rotations of … read more

Going head to head in APM: Dynatrace VS AppDynamics

The APM (application performance management) market is one of the most watched and in-demand tech industries today. Why? Because perfect application performance is undeniably the holy grail for every modern business. That’s why we set about redefining how global businesses approach APM more than four years ago. You see, we saw on the horizon just how insanely complex and hyperscale our IT environments were about to get. So, we worked … read more

How IT in the age of digital transformation is like the space race

Next month will mark the 47th anniversary of Apollo 13. The film that recounts the story is a favorite of mine, probably because it so masterfully captures the incredible suspense, fear, and hope felt by people everywhere, that I personally recall very well. I also know how an organization’s digital transformation can generate similar reactions! Apollo 13 was likely a casualty of the space program’s incredibly aggressive schedule. NASA, with U.S. … read more
