Overview: Dynatrace Application PerformanceManagementWHY APPLICATION PERFORMANCEMANAGEMENT?APPLICATIONS ARE THE BUSINESSSince 2005, applications have increasingly become the life-bloodof business. What used to be focused on back-office only, havenow become our primary means of engagement — engagementwith customers, engagement with channels, engagement withsupply chains. Revenue, loyalty and brand image have neverbeen more dependent on how well our applications perform.No wonder application performance management (APM) hasbecome a C-level initiative in so many Global 10,000 companies.APPLICATION-CENTRIC IT IS THE NEW MODELAnd for IT, because applications directly impact the businessmore than ever, applications have become the primaryorganizing principle. No longer are leading IT organizationsnetwork-centric, or infrastructure-centric. To more tightlyalign with the business, leading IT organizations have becomeapplication-centric. This shift in focus has led many CIOs toexpand their expectations and use of APM. APM is quicklyshifting from just another IT tool set used for reactive applicationtroubleshooting, to a strategic IT fabric used to monitor,manage, tune and assure superior application availability andperformance on a proactive basis. These new expectations aredriving Dynatrace’s APM innovation.A DANGEROUS VISIBILITY GAP IS GROWINGAs the new digital enterprise emerges, where applications drivethe business, a dangerous visibility gap is growing. Not only haveapplications never been more important, they have never beenso complex either. An application’s delivery chain extends froma variety of browsers on a growing number of devices across anexpanding set of cloud services to multi-tiered, multi-locationdata-centers through a wide variety of servers and services,message buses, mainframes and databases. If the applicationdelivery chain complexity is not enough, user expectationsare rising as well, driving greater need for speed and newfunctionality. Applications are changing faster than ever, scalinglarger than ever, and touching more components and 3rd partyservices than ever.A NEW GENERATION OF APM HAS EMERGEDEnter APM. Not yesterday’s APM which was a heavy tool setfor reactive troubleshooting. But a new generation of APM —automatic to deploy, auto-adaptive to application change, smartself-learning in its baselining, out-of-the-box in its dashboardand reporting, proactive in its visibility, user-centric in itsperspective and immediate in its value. Dynatrace leads thisnew generation in vision, innovation, product, expertise andvalue. Dynatrace — formerly Compuware APM — has beennamed a Gartner APM Magic Quadrant Leader 5 years running.“APM is a cornerstone investment in both processes and technology that I&O [Infrastructure andOperations] leaders must make to better manage the applications that run their business and servetheir customers,”—— Jean-Pierre Garbani, Principal Analyst Vice President, Forresterdynatrace.com1
INNOVATION & VALUEA HISTORY OF APM INNOVATIONDynatrace — formerly Compuware APM — has been in theapplication performance management space for over a decade,long before it was fashionable. In 2008 we saw things changingrapidly. Disruption in the way applications were being built(Agile, DevOps.), in the way they were being architected (SOA,message buses.), and the way they were being deployed(virtualized, cloud.) was accelerating. Unlike our big competitorsat the time, we saw a need for a new generation of APM toaddress this myriad of disruptive changes. In 2009 we acquiredGomez with its global synthetic network and SaaS deliverymodel. In 2010 we revamped our Vantage line and introducedthe market’s first network-aware APM solution for full DataCenter deployments. And in 2011 we acquired Dynatrace, thefastest growing APM start-up in the world with their patentedPurePath technology. In 2014, we have rebranded CompuwareAPM to Dynatrace, reflecting a 100% focus on APM.OUR BEST OF BREED APPROACHWe have now crafted these 3 product-lines into the industry’smost complete, most powerful APM solution for modernapplications.

“We needed to have complete confidence that our site could handle the traffic volume during our critical peakperiods, so we turned to Dynatrace which provided advanced visualizations to help us spot anomalies andbottlenecks faster. The transaction details and metrics were mind blowing for us.”—— Lance Shinabarger, VP of Information Systems, Domino’s PizzaUNIQUE SOLUTIONSDYNATRACE IS DIFFERENTUnlike competitive alternatives, Dynatrace is a best of breedsystem incorporating the 3 dimensions of modern APM — UserExperience Management, Deep Application Monitoring andApplication-Aware Network Performance Management.Incorporated into all 3 dimensions are three additionalfoundational elements that give the Dynatrace system itsunique, industry leading value. First, smart analytics have beenapplied across the platform to make implementation, operationand management extremely easy yet powerful. Second,purpose built performance lifecycle collaboration capabilities,sometimes call DevOps capabilities, have been embedded todramatically reduce problem resolution time and speed newapplication functionality to market. And third, Dynatrace’spatented PurePath Technology has been extended across alldimension of the system to provide the industry’s deepest andmost accurate.ELIMINATE GUESSWORK WITH ALL THE FACTS,ALL THE TIMENo sampling, no averages, no human correlation between avariety of disparate tools.
