  • Quickly isolate the architectural differences in your page design that can help you gain competitive advantage
  • Dig deep into the components of your web pages—especially third-party services —and compare performance to competitors, digital leaders, or even pre-release versions of your site
  • Benchmark your third-party service providers over time and establish services levels (SLAs) based on objective measurement
  • Discover superior third-party service alternatives from the collective intelligence gathered across Dynatrace’s monitored sites, and drive digital business improvement

Take advantage of PurePath: Keynote Synthetic Monitoring is now integrated with Dynatrace Application Monitoring

  • Pinpoint app performance problems that are not client-side related
  • Trace every transaction starting from a synthetic monitor, through backend systems, 3rd parties, virtualized tiers and more
  • Go from client-side level to code-level in seconds
  • Eliminate finger pointing and guesswork by sharing PurePath traces
  • Reduce MTTR and Test cycles by getting deep, accurate information the first time to those who need it

Take our data and have your way with it: keynote’s Next Generation Data API

    • Filtering : Pull only the data you need; no need to post-process to remove extra data.
    • Speed : Faster response time due both to better filtering and new NoSQL infrastructure
    • Easy to learn : Fewer and simpler calls; just three different methods
