Dynatrace Simplifies Transition to Dynamic Data Centers with New Performance Analytics

Data Center RUM 12.4 Closes Visibility Gap Created by Heterogeneous Application and Network Architectures

Boston, MA — March 9, 2016 — Digital Performance software company, Dynatrace today unveiled a new release of Data Center Real User Monitoring (DC RUM), version 12.4. This new release delivers end-user and transaction-centric performance monitoring for dynamic data centers, providing new visibility into software-defined networks and accelerating the transition of organizations to more service-oriented IT operations. By analyzing performance metrics in the context of the user’s experience, DC RUM enables IT teams to prioritize and solve problems directly impacting their users, helping organizations save valuable time and resources.

In response to business demands, IT must deliver more and more complex application services using disparate platforms. According to Gartner, large enterprises manage an average of 871 applications.1 Dynamic, software-defined data centers facilitate this growth, but they also introduce new complexity and new challenges to delivering stellar user experience.

DC RUM tames the complexity of today’s dynamic IT environments with powerful insights and analytics that are easy to deploy and use. No matter how quickly new IT services are introduced to end-users, DC RUM 12.4 immediately discovers and reveals their impact on experience with deep network and application tier detail. It introduces visibility into virtual networks, transactional insights into new application environments, and new interfaces to external IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) and dashboarding solutions.

Key capabilities and benefits in DC RUM 12.4 include:

“DC RUM 12.4 demonstrates our commitment to meeting the changing needs of IT operations teams,” said Steve Tack, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Dynatrace. “As modern data center and application architecture complexity increases, infrastructure monitoring alone isn’t enough to understand service quality.
