ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 7, 2014–Dynatrace PERFORM Global User Conference–Dynatrace, (formerly Compuware APM) the leader in user-centric application performance management (APM), today announced the release of Dynatrace Application Monitoring 6 and Dynatrace User Experience Management 6.
As today’s user interactions increasingly happen over mobile and digital channels, businesses need to understand their users’ behavior and perception, in order to maximize usage, customer satisfaction and conversion. Gaining those insights demands more than the evolution of existing sample-based APM solutions, which were architected to capture data related to poorly performing transactions only. Understanding the experience and behavior of digital users, requires the capture and analysis of customer visits without gaps, regardless of device, location and time. Dynatrace 6 brings a new architecture that enables businesses to capture and analyze each user visit and actions, and understand how conversion, satisfaction, user behavior and performance correlate.
“Many APM solutions claiming to address user experience management today are in fact repurposed from traditional sampling-based techniques and focused on monitoring application health, not users’ experience,” said Steve Tack, Vice President of Product Management at Dynatrace. “This new architecture enables anyone to capture not just slow transaction data, but any data that pertains to customers’ visits. This data provides tremendous insights into user behaviors across channels, and how conversion and user experience correlate.”
This release also greatly simplifies the deployment, management and monitoring of APM through set-up wizards, auto-instrumentation of Apple iOS and Swift-based apps, and simple business transaction definition.
