Gartner recently released their latest magic quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and in this report mentioned five key dimensions, two of which were Application Mapping and Transaction Profiling. These two dimensions are critical for users to identify performance bott...
On Tuesday, Gartner announced this year’s Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM).   I’ll make a few observations from reading the MQ and then suggest 3 additional criteria that APM buyers should consider to make informed buying decisions. The research report starte...
There is a massive difference between migrating some code to the cloud and migrating an entire application to the cloud. Yes, the heart of any application is indeed its codebase, but code can’t execute without data and there lies the biggest challenge of any cloud migration. R...
   
One of our partners recently outlined a logical framework for evaluating Application Performance Management (APM) vendors to help prospects and customers choose the right APM solution for their needs. Below is an extract along with a link to the full article: “We work with a lot ...
Back in April this year, we announced new monitoring support for NoSQL tecnhnologies like Cassandra and Memcached which was received really well by our customers. Due to further demand we’ve seen over the past few months from prospects and customers we’ve officially added M...
I’m fed up of reading about Cloud outages, largely because all applications are created and managed by the most dangerous species on the planet – the human being. Failure is inevitable in regards to everything the human being creates or touches, and for this reason alone I ...
Welcome Cassandra, let’s start with a quick introduction of who you are and what you can do. I am a high-performance distributed scalable database.  I am really good at doing lots of operations and growing as your data needs increase, and to top that all off I run on commodity hardware...
There are many technical articles/blogs on the web that jump straight into areas of .NET code you can instantly optimize and tune. Before we get to some of those areas, it’s good to take a step back and ask yourself, “Why am I here?” Are you interested in tuning your app, which is slow...
At the USA PGA golf tourney last week, Tiger Woods missed the cut for only the 3rd time in his career. Whilst “Go Tiger” has indeed taken on a completely new meaning over the past few years, he is still the worlds #1 sports earner. CNN recently published the 50 highest-earning American...

If you are running mission-critical applications and do not have a strategy to deal with failure, you are putting your whole organization at risk. You may think that your application cannot fail, but at some point everything fails. It may not be the software running your application t...

Last week I published my winning Customer X-Ray of the Quarter, which showed how AppDynamics was able to help a media customer solve a production issue that had plagued their application for over two years. This week I’m posting the runner-up X-Ray entry. This one describes how A...
Six months ago I did something really stupid. I foolishly jumped on the social media bandwagon, thinking I could become the first super hero to claim online greatness. Sadly the only meteoric rise has been the disk space quota for my email server inbox. All thanks to the billion notifi...
Whilst disrupting the APM marketplace is a primary objective for AppDynamics, our ultimate goal is to help customers manage applications performance and solve real world problems using our software. Our unique visibility allows customers to fully understand how their business transacti...
Welcome Jeremy, lets start with a quick introduction of who you are and what you do at EMC. I run marketing at EMC working for Joe Tucci, our CEO.  Been there about 18 months. And what beer will you be drinking tonight? That new Bud in bottles that includes Lime – why did no one think ...
When we launched AppDynamics Pro back in October 2009, it redefined the way organizations could monitor and manage the performance of their production Java applications. The feedback we’ve received to date can be summed up as “Simple, Smart, Powerful and easy to use.” Over the la...
Ask any developer to name a few common performance bottlenecks and 99.9% of them will say “the database” as their first answer. Ask a DBA the same question and 99.9% of them will respond “crappy application code.” If we put aside the mutual love between each party, it’s actually ...
“APM Game Changer” was the headline yesterday with the news that Compuware acquired Dynatrace Software for $256 million. With the APM market worth an estimated $6 billion, it’s not really a surprise to see such a transaction (no pun intended) within the APM market. In fact, over the pa...
When we founded AppDynamics, we wanted to disrupt the marketplace to make APM accessible to every organization. We felt Application Performance shouldn’t discriminate and should be available to all sizes of organizations, from startups to SMBs to large Enterprises. In the past, t...
 
We’re pretty lucky these days to work and play with lots of cool stuff. In a consumer world of HD TVs, Mac books, iPhones, Droids, Angry Birds, Face books and tweets, life is rarely boring. Working in IT is the same. We’ve got clouds, NoSQL, agile, SOA, ria, pythons, scalas, rubi...
After Velocity came DevOpsDays in Mountain View. I was hoping to give my feet and liver a rest after two consecutive days at Velocity. When I woke up at 7:30 a.m. the next day my body was throwing lots of OutOfEnergyExceptions, and it did cross my mind whether another 2 day event on De...
AppDynamics had a great time last week at Velocity; it was probably the most relevant event we’ll attend this year. Great Keynotes, sessions and an audience that truly understood the significance of application performance. At our booth, it was refreshing to hear questions around monit...
 
 
I love Business Transactions. In fact, at MIT during my Ph.D. I had to learn how to be faster than a speeding business transaction to keep up and monitor them. It wasn’t easy! I mean, you try hopping across multiple tiers and into call stacks in milliseconds. It’s enough to give anyone...
