AppDynamics enables IT teams to seamlessly build cloud-native apps

AppDynamics, a part of Cisco, has released new capabilities designed to help IT teams build cloud native applications.

The new features enable enterprises to connect hybrid cloud application performance to business performance in real-time. Through a context-sensitive visualisation interface, correlated insights across domains and intelligent resource optimisation, enterprise IT leaders will be able to reduce noise and surface only the most business-critical information and insights across their unique hybrid environments.

“AppDynamics’ new portfolio of cloud native services is the only solution on the market to provide an easy to use performance monitoring platform that helps users tame the complexity of the cloud from the application all the way through to the network,” said Jeetu Patel, senior vice president and general manager, security & applications, Cisco.

He added, “By reducing noise and providing the context that matters most to cloud workflows, business leaders will be able to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives and improve their user experiences.”

According to AppDynamics, technologists are adopting cloud services faster than ever before in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the increased pressure it has placed on IT.  While new cloud technologies have delivered flexibility and enabled innovation for businesses as they seek to deliver seamless customer and employee digital experiences, they have also led to more complex and distributed application architectures. This has created huge challenges for technologists in enterprise organisations who typically rely on many traditional IT systems to run their businesses but now operate in a hybrid cloud environment. As IT teams adopt more cloud native services to meet the digital demands of their users, the challenge to refactor applications and design new features at scale becomes increasingly challenging due to a lack of holistic visibility and business context across the multiple environments.

AppDynamics’ new portfolio of cloud capabilities closes that visibility gap and allows users to connect traditional systems with cloud native services, all in the context of business outcomes.

These new capabilities include:

  • Full Stack Observability Platform: A new data platform designed to increase visibility and seamlessly ingest data from multiple sources including AppDynamics agent-based data, open-source tools and agent-less services and correlate the data across domains.
  • Cloud Data Collector: An extensible architecture for capturing and automating data collection and correlating cloud services with application code, user experience and business impact to provide full stack, context rich observability. Starting with Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) monitoring and observability service, Amazon CloudWatch, and then expanding to incorporate additional public and private cloud environments.
  • Cloud Native Visualisation: A new visualisation interface that reduces the complexity of monitoring cloud-native applications with a context-sensitive, easy to understand, visual representation.
  • Intelligent Application Resourcing and Cost Optimisation: An integration with Cisco Intersight Workload Optimiser will transform operations from reactive to proactive by optimising infrastructure resources and costs in hybrid cloud environments.

AppDynamics’ new cloud native capabilities are generally available today. Learn more about how to access these new services here.s
