"Dynatrace is the best digital experience solution in the market."
Dubai Customs continues to transform its services to provide smart platforms that help drive a thriving online business in the UAE. Key to this is Mirsal, a collection of mission-critical applications used to process the movement of goods in and out of the emirate. Any failure in these applications can lead to long delays and tailbacks at the border, potentially causing commodities with a limited shelf-life to spoil. Maximizing uptime is therefore vital to ensure clearance processes are fast and meet the high standards its customers expect. Dubai Customs also aspires to being able to contact customers proactively to help them complete transactions if they encounter a problem.
To manage the performance and availability of its digital services, Dubai Customs previously relied on a variety of legacy monitoring solutions. Many of these solutions were native to its infrastructure, which spans traditional data center and private cloud environments. Development teams also used their own preferred testing tools to ensure any new builds met the required standards before being released to production. This fragmented approach resulted in delays to innovation and performance blind spots, which meant Dubai Customs was often unaware of problems until customers reported them.
Dubai Customs needed end-to-end, real-time observability across its applications and infrastructure to improve the reliability of its services and help teams resolve issues before they impacted customers. After evaluating the market, Dubai Customs identified Dynatrace as the best solution for its needs. It saw particular benefits in Dynatrace’s ability to automatically capture every user transaction, rather than relying on random sampling to baseline performance. This offered Dubai Customs visibility into every user journey and precise, AI-powered answers into the impact of any performance problems on their experience. These insights would enable its teams to instantly identify the precise root cause of problems and prioritize their efforts to resolve those with the most significant impact on its customers.
“Dynatrace was the obvious choice due to its comprehensive range of capabilities and the depth and breadth of observability it provided at infrastructure level in a single solution,” says Mushtaq Khan, Infrastructure Team Lead at Dubai Customs. “Dynatrace gave us an end-to-end view across our hyper converged infrastructure environment within seconds, without needing multiple agents or plugins. Its fully automated continuous discovery eliminated blind spots and meant we no longer had to rely on sampling or estimate the impact application performance has on our user experience.”
