Software-defined businesses have complex, distributed, difficult-to-manage applications. Making sense of all the data, transactions, events and user interactions in these environments is increasingly difficult as the volume, variety and velocity of data grows. Current monitoring and management tools are complex to deploy and maintain, operate in disconnected silos, thereby limiting their usefulness and business value.

In response to the limitations of today's solutions, the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform provides an integrated view of actual transactions and provides comprehensive discovery and diagnostics capabilities, automatic visualization of application topology and real-time auto-remediation. This robust functionality provides businesses the solutions needed to convert data and information into actionable knowledge and intelligence that keeps them ahead of the curve. Building on the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform is the newly announced Transaction Analytics product, a powerful solution allowing businesses to see in real-time the commercial or business value of user-transactions and how they correlate with operational data and overall application performance.

"With the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform, businesses can see deep into all the applications and transactions running across the enterprise, quickly take action against any performance issues that may occur and provide the analytical intelligence to solve operational and business problems," said Jyoti Bansal, founder and CEO, AppDynamics. "The Application Intelligence Platform provides the end-to-end certainty necessary to make strategic decisions to run, strengthen and grow your business."

Data Processing capabilities
Data processing and correlation is one of the most important elements working with large complex data sets:

  • Time series clustering and analytics provides the ability to index and manage time series by auto rolling up, purging or clustering data sets by time increments
  • Behavioral learning is an engine that continuously adjusts dynamic baselines for an automated manageable data set

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
