In 2016, blockchain technology came close to hitting its peak on Gartner’s annual Hype Cycle, signaling an imminent shift from an emerging, theoretical technology to widespread adoption. Like cloud, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) before it, blockchain is the tech indu...
“Celebrating the Future of Cisco and AppDynamics” originally appeared on http://blogs.cisco.com. Today, I had the sincere honor to stand with leaders of AppDynamics to ring the Nasdaq opening bell. I can now say that AppDynamics and Cisco are one team. In ringing the bell, ...
Today is a big day for all of us associated with AppDynamics. It’s been a short nine years since Jyoti Bansal started the company and brought Bhaskar Sunkara on board. Together they saw a clear opportunity to bring greater performance and reliability to software and applications in a w...
In today’s connected world, every company is a software company. Market tailwinds for digital transformation are only increasing. In the last few years alone, the number of digital touch points your customer has with your business has gone up significantly. In this era of heighte...
At AppD Summit Europe in London, a special track has been put together to help practitioners and operations professionals go beyond basic AppDynamics APM and learn how to leverage dashboards, Business iQ, and end user monitoring to get even more value from the App iQ Platform. This tra...
This is a guest blog post by Vicky Woollaston, Digital Editor @WIREDUK As I write this post, I’m reflecting on our complete dependence on software and technology today. While not having access to emails for an hour or so might be a welcome relief to some, an outage on such a critical a...
Can a better UX simultaneously deliver a worse user experience? It sounds like a paradox, but it may be more common than you think. It describes a category of UX design practices that have little to do with improving the actual experience and everything to do with suggesting that the e...
Today’s digital businesses rely upon a large amount of software systems built throughout the history of the organization. Much of the focus to date has been on systems of engagement such as mobile and web applications, but there are countless systems underneath these newer modern...
More than one tenth of the total private sector payroll in the US goes straight to workers in the tech industry. And despite some well-established stereotypes, tech isn’t just a man’s world. There are an estimated 2.3 million women in computer training, biotechnology, data processing, ...
The Gartner perspectives on the CIO survey data always makes for great reading at the start of the year, and these documents for 2017 were published a few weeks ago. These documents are created by the lead analysts in a particular region or vertical slice, looking at the CIO survey for...
One of the best ways to increase website conversions and build customer trust in your online brand is to boost your page speed. However, many businesses fail to make the connection between site performance and increased revenue. More than half of mobile web visitors will abandon sites ...
Look around. Promises are nothing, performance is everything. That’s just as true for developers and operations engineers as it is for the apps they’re responsible for managing. In the tech field, top performers are worth roughly 300 times that of the average knowledge work...
Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon’s best-in-class cloud services offering, had downtime of only 2.5 hours in 2015. You may think their uptime of 99.9997 percent had something to do with an engineering team of hundreds, a budget of billions, or dozens of data centers across the globe—bu...
The manageability, reliability and powerful technology of remote servers — cloud computing — allows IT managers to deploy hundreds, even thousands of machines. At the same time, the cloud creates a new challenge for sys admins and ops teams: how to maintain and configure al...
One of the big laughs from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, where the crew from the future travels back in time to 1986 San Francisco, happens when Scotty is put in front of a PC and the chief engineer of the Starship Enterprise speaks into the mouse, “Hello, computer.” In th...
“Technology remains key to business success.” This statement comes from the 19th Annual Global CEO Survey which was conducted by PwC. It’s a simple, yet incredibly loaded and exciting statement for anyone working in enterprise IT. It’s also the reason why we have a whole track at our f...

The last few months have been very busy behind the scenes, but we’re now delighted to open registrations for the biggest AppDynamics event ever held outside of the U.S., AppD Summit Europe. We’re looking forward to hosting over a thousand delegates who will join us on May 3...
For many companies, and up until about just five years ago, the only metrics for how well a mobile app performed were network call errors and whether it crashed or not. But those times are long behind us, as there’s nothing simple about today’s mobile apps. Issues are harder to find a...
Is Azure the dominant cloud-based development infrastructure of the future? There’s some good evidence to support that claim. At last year’s Dell World conference in Austin, TX, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced on stage that there are only two horses in the contest for...
“No provision need be made for the user to program the return of registers to the free-storage list.” This line (along with the dozen or so that followed it) is buried in the middle of John McCarthy’s landmark paper, “Recursive Functions of Symbolic Expressions and Their Computation b...
Despite the rapid growth of new programming languages and platforms, PHP continues to be a stable workforce that powers much of the web. More than 82 percent of the internet is powered with server-side programming apps using PHP — more than ASP.NET, Java, and ColdFusion. For a while, i...

Look at how far we’ve come. Just seven decades ago, the word “computer” referred to someone in an office with a pile of charts and a slide rule. Then ENIAC, the first electronic computer, appeared. It was followed quickly by the Commodore 64 personal computer and later, the iPhone. Tod...
This is the story of software. The initial blog in this series was all about the structural formation of programming languages. We went all the way back to steampunk days to see how the framework for programming grew out of Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine in the 1840s. We ended up ...
There are customers who love engaging with your business, and those who don’t. Now more than ever, this dichotomy has significant competitive implications. Social media enables the user experience to go viral, which gives a megaphone to your business’s most dissatisfied customers. This...
On June 27, Microsoft announced the release of a project several years in the making — .NET Core. The solution resulted from the need for a nonproprietary version of Microsoft’s .NET Framework — one that runs on Mac and several versions of Linux, as well as on Windows. This cross-platf...
As the world becomes more connected and technology continues to evolve, your success as a programmer depends on your ability to learn and adapt. Any seasoned developer knows you should always be looking for ways to improve your programming skills. On that note, whether you’re new to th...
C++ is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. It’s very fast and used for many high-profile projects, including Google Chrome and Microsoft Office. C++ is a mid-level language that communicates close to the hardware layer while still being easier to program than lo...
Like other industries did before it, retail banking is riding a bucking bronco of digital transformation. While customer satisfaction levels drop and government rules and regulations continue to expand, retail banking seeks new ways to adapt to the massive changes in how consumers inte...
As the internet’s renowned programming language, Java has had a profound impact on how people navigate the digital world. Much of what users expect in terms of performance from their devices that access the internet has been set by Java functionality. You don’t have to be a developer, ...
Now that AppSphere 2016 is over, I have been reflecting on the track sessions that I managed and the ones that I watched at the event. While all of them were very good, there are a couple which really stand out for me. One of these was ‘Standard Bank’s: Agile, DevOps & the Role of ...
One thing I have learned so far this holiday season is that a 15 pound turkey is too big for only 4 people! I love this time of year as it’s a chance for me to take time and read a number of the predictions articles that have come out in recent weeks. Here are some that have caught my ...
In the old days, before 2012, software engineers would often go to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to catch up on the latest developments in software and hardware. CES tended to be more of a hardware show, however. A few years ago, Microsoft recognized this fact and de...
At AppSphere 2016, we gave attendees a glimpse into the future of our new license management system. As we continue to grow in large enterprises and gain broader adoption across more parts of the organizations we service, our customers have asked us to help their administrators manage ...
How great are winning streaks? You get validation for hard work (which is, of course, the only way you have long term success. I’m not talking lucky streak, here.). It draws attention to the good work you’re doing. And it lends credibility. And as the world continues to speed up, atten...
Bhaskar Sunkara, co-founder and CTO of AppDynamics, announced a new innovation initiative called AppD Labs during Day 2 of AppSphere 2016. It was a casual atmosphere billed as “quality engineering time”, as guests were treated to beer service upon entering the General Sessi...
The new “speed” conversation When you’ve been writing marketing about tech companies since the dawn of the millennium, as I have, you hear the topic of speed come up a lot. And rightfully so. It is, of course, a vital metric and, in a marketing sense, a crucial differentiator when sell...
In a session at AppSphere 2016, Blackbaud presented “How Blackbaud Transformed From On-Prem to SaaS Through DevOps and AppDynamics”, where Blackbaud shared the challenges and benefits of moving from an on-premise model to an SaaS-delivered model. They also discussed how DevOps practice...
