What is the purpose of monitoring tools?

Monitoring Tools ensure high performance for your software. Constant monitoring of your system allows you to manage the performance and availability of software applications. This leads to quick response times, improved computing processes and satisfied customers. Especially digital end user experience is one of the main goals when dealing with real user interactions and business transactions. Dynatrace monitoring tools save the effort of interpreting such dependent events on your own and directs you to the component that might cause performance issues or problems for your customers. Fixing, accelerating, and optimizing your servers and software applications has never been so easy.

What killed traditional monitoring?

As software development transitions to a cloud-native approach that employs microservices, containers, and software-defined cloud infrastructure, the immediate future will bring more immense complexity than the human mind can envision.

You also invested in monitoring tools—lots of them over the years. But your traditional monitoring tools don’t work in this new dynamic world of speed and scale that cloud computing enables. That’s why many analysts and industry leaders predict that more than 50% of enterprises will entirely replace their traditional monitoring tools in the next few years.
