Boston, MA — October 12, 2016 — Digital Performance Management company Dynatrace, today announced a partnership with Ranger4, a DevOps transformation and tooling specialist, to accelerate DevOps adoption for Ranger4’s customers. Dynatrace’s suite of performance monitoring and management solutions will be available to Ranger4’s customers and prospects to enable both development and operations teams to use the same performance metrics throughout the development lifecycle, fostering the collaboration which underpins DevOps.
Steve Green, DevOpsologist at Ranger4, said “We are delighted to be able to add Digital Performance Management from Dynatrace to our DevOps toolchain portfolio – as it’s the missing link in the ‘realisation’ part of the DevOps loop we seek to create in every DevOps transformation we deliver. Performance monitoring and testing is critical to DevOps as organisations need constant visibility into everything taking place in the development lifecycle and production environment. As a result, metrics are crucial when organisations are transforming in line with DevOps principles and having a platform, such as Dynatrace’s, that offers such detailed, business orientated insights into an application’s performance is vital.”
The Dynatrace platform provides IT teams with a pre-emptive warning of performance issues throughout the development lifecycle, identifying the root cause of degradations quickly to reduce mean-time-to-resolution. The data obtained through automated testing also enables companies to assess the impact of new digital services in production and consequently improve these services through the establishment of better feedback loops. With a unified view of performance data across development and operations, companies can obtain a comprehensive perspective that translates into an overall competitive advantage.
“There’s a vital need for skills and expertise in agile software delivery methods, which is why our partnership with Ranger4 is so important,” explains Patrice Attia, VP EMEA North at Dynatrace. “Today’s marketplace is driven by ever-increasing demands for features, speed and reliability, so companies must adopt continuous delivery methods, such as DevOps, to deliver new services quickly without eroding the customer experience. For DevOps to deliver outstanding digital performance to customers and significant business results to companies, automated testing must be integrated from the outset - to ensure problems aren’t found too late to implement fundamental changes.”
