Application management software

Web applications have evolved to fulfill many critical business transactions. Consequently, the performance and availability of these applications directly impact the bottom-lines of businesses. Application health monitoring and application virtualization technologies can help to maintain application availability and scalability. However, they do not directly address the needs of improving application performance and user experience. These needs can be met using application management software which includes tools for monitoring and managing application performance called application performance management tools (APM tools).

Gain competitive advantage using application management software from Dynatrace

Traditional APM tools provide rudimentary and disparate snapshots of application components. They capture high-level metrics of components in single tiers but do not have the capability to view across the entire application delivery chain within the scope of individual transactions. Some APM tools only just provide coverage in the web tier by monitoring traffic between users and the application front-end ignoring infrastructure components like databases and third-party services. These approaches do not provide end-to-end visibility for business transactions. They do not capture full business insight into application behavior and whether applications meet service level targets for each user.

Application management software from Dynatrace meets and exceeds challenging application performance management requirements that are inherent in today's complex applications. Dynatrace's patented PurePath Technology® captures deep transaction detail that is needed to optimize application performance and user experience and ensure application scalability and stability. PurePath Technology traces each transaction end-to-end from user clicks to application middle-tiers to back-end infrastructure tiers. It captures metrics from distributed transactions which span through the cloud, distributed application and database tiers, and third-party services. Any performance issues encountered in the application delivery chain are highlighted to provide actionable information to resolve the issues quickly.

Comprehensive application management software from Dynatrace

Dynatrace provides turnkey application management software products for performance management of web applications. Four products are available. They can be used together to provide a complete application performance management solution.

  • Dynatrace Application Monitoring is an APM tool that uses PurePath Technology® for end-to-end monitoring of application execution and PureStack® Technology which automatically correlates system metrics with individual transaction performance. Tracing for each transaction starts from user click through application execution through database query processing and back. Any problems in a transaction can be quickly drilled-down to get code-level details. Captured performance data can be shared across development, test, and operations teams to resolve any problems quickly.
  • Dynatrace User Experience Management is an application management software product that measures the performance of every user interaction with an application. It provides an integrated view of user experience across all application types - web, mobile web, native mobile, and hybrid. Performance across browsers, devices, geographies, and bandwidths can be compared. For websites that are revenue sensitive such as e-commerce sites, slow performance can be visually correlated with revenue flow in real-time.
  • Dynatrace Synthetic Monitoring is an application management software product that measures application performance by using scripted transactions to replicate user experience from multiple global locations. To replicate geographical diversity, high-volume load is generated from the cloud, and hundreds of test executions involving thousands of objects across first and third-party hosts can be analyzed. Realistic request volume and diversity can be generated to obtain meaningful and actionable results.
  • Dynatrace Data Center RUM is an APM solution focused on enterprise applications running in the data center. It traces transaction execution from front-end web servers through all application and infrastructure tiers, identifies performance hotspots and limitations, and server and network bottlenecks. Transactional analysis is supported for a wide range of databases and middleware including Oracle, DB2, XML/SOAP, IBM MQ, MSSQL, and LDAP. Additionally, the relationship between network performance and application performance and user experience can be viewed directly.
