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."

  • Real-time service discovery renders architecture topology to clearly and automatically map critical relationships and dependencies
  • The smart agent filters and transfers data to the management server securely and in real-time

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
  • Unstructured and structured big data indexing creates a data warehouse for different types of application data which is seamlessly correlated and processed

Converting Data into Knowledge

  • Intuitive user interface (UI) allows for a simple and easy-to-use platform for business users, developers and operations teams
  • Dynamic flow maps create a clear and understandable visual representation of the application topology, so organizations understand what is happening in the big picture
  • Cross-correlated drill down from anywhere in the UI, enabling pin-point accuracy across multiple nodes and machines
  • Real-time correlation of performance metrics and business metrics create a business understanding of data never before delivered

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.
DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO, to be held June 25-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA – announces that its Call for Papers is open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's largest enterprises – and delivering real results. Among the proven benefits, DevOps is correlated with 20% faster time-to-market, 22% improvement in quality, and 18% reduction in dev and ops costs, according to research firm Vanson-Bourne. It is changing the way IT works, how businesses interact with customers, and how organizations are buying, building, and delivering software.
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators. If you are running infrastructure, this talk will change how you think about your job in profound ways.
The current environment of Continuous Disruption requires companies to transform how they work and how they engineer their products. Transformations are notoriously hard to execute, yet many companies have succeeded. What can we learn from them? Can we produce a blueprint for a transformation? This presentation will cover several distinct approaches that companies take to achieve transformation. Each approach utilizes different levers and comes with its own advantages, tradeoffs, costs, risks, and outcomes.
