August Azzarello, IS quality assurance engineer at The Container Store, wrote in about his favorite: AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform, a management platform that's designed to help companies see what's going on in their application environments and take action when application performance is affecting the business.
"AppDynamics helps give us clear insight into our infrastructure(s), in both production and test environments. This allows us to more efficiently focus on performance and stability by notifying us of problem spots. More and more, we are realizing the power of AppDynamics, not only from a true production monitoring platform, but in development and test processes," Azzarello says. "Simple implementation of alerting, instant increased knowledge of our infrastructure and application performance, and visual dashboards for every type of audience make it a complete solution."
Similarly, Jan Swaelens shared his experience with Dynatrace application performance management.
"I am especially fond of Dynatrace because it gives us a crystal clear view of what is happening to not only our application but the complete landscape of our deployments -- and in addition to that a view of what the actual (real) user perceives at his end (which is the ultimate point of a commercial application -- making the end user happy and productive)," says Swaelens, software architect and member of the solution management team at Sofico, which develops software for car leasing, fleet management and mobility companies.
Sofico has been using Dynatrace for three years. "During that period of time it helped us to identify several problems in our application(s) which we would have never known about otherwise, for example complex sync issues causing slowdowns and certain excessive SQL executions which overloaded the database for no good reason," Swaelens says.
