For online businesses, the key elements of any customer-facing website or app are the transactions in which users engage: the sign-ups, logins, product searches, click-throughs, downloads, adding of items to a shopping cart, check-outs, reviews, and so on. Since these transactions are the lifeblood of a digital business, IT managers and business stakeholders often look to transaction monitoring tools for insight into a business’s current health and future prospects. The problem is that most transaction monitoring tools provide narrow metrics that are detached from key contextual dimensions such as application performance, infrastructure performance, and user experience. The exception is Dynatrace, a unified digital performance management solution that uses big data analytics to help you understand not only the "whats" but the "whys" behind the performance of critical business transactions.
Dynatrace is a unified application, infrastructure, and user experience management solution used by more than 8000 digital businesses worldwide. With your installation of a single lightweight agent, Dynatrace application mapping tools automatically identify all of the components, dependencies, and transactions that comprise your on-premise, cloud, or hybrid cloud application. Dynatrace transaction monitoring tools then trace every single transaction throughout its entire path and in its interactions with the resources that support it: from user click or tap, across web and application server tiers, middleware tiers, and through to your back-end databases; as well as down through underlying virtual and physical infrastructure.
Coupling this end-to-end and top-to-bottom transaction tracing with advanced data analytics, Dynatrace transaction monitoring tools deliver:
Dynatrace’s ability to analyze the entire context of critical business transactions extends not only to every major programming platform and every major type of server, hypervisor, and container, but also to all major private and public cloud technologies, with our built-in OpenStack monitoring tools and tools for cloud application management across cloud services such as AWS, Azure, and Cloud Foundry.
Dynatrace transaction monitoring tools together with our user experience monitoring tools can show you how transactions are a key link between application and infrastructure performance on the one hand, and user experience on the other. For instance, Dynatrace may show you that some users are bailing out on a sluggish check-out transaction, and that the sluggishness is ultimately rooted in mis-configured connection pools between your application layer and database layer.
The Dynatrace solution for unified transaction and infrastructure monitoring is available as SaaS or as a managed on-premise system that integrates with leading DevOps automation tools and enterprise applications. Dynatrace SaaS is the only monitoring as a service solution with a pure consumption-based pricing model, based on the type and amount of capabilities that you utilize. With the Dynatrace SaaS solution you can be mapping and monitoring your application in a matter of minutes.
