Digital enterprises are finding that application performance management solutions, software tools which facilitate the monitoring and management of performance availability, are an important part of their 'Net success.
And as more and more apps make their way into the cloud, APM solutions become even more crucial and in demand. For example, AppDynamics has just been made available as an add-on in the Windows Azure store and customers like Macmillan Publishers are quickly adopting the solution to find the cause of slowdowns and outages during production.
"AppDynamics is one of only a handful of application monitoring solutions that works on Windows Azure, and the only one that provides the level of visibility required in our distributed and complex application environments," said James Graham, project manager at MacMillan Publishers. "The AppDynamics monitoring solution provides insight into how our .NET applications perform at a code level, which is invaluable in the creation of a dynamic, fulfilling user experience for our students."
Enterprises using AppDynamics pro offers discover and topology mapping for Winsows Azure application dependencies and third-party services, end-to-end transaction profiling of user requests, code-level diagnostics and integration through Visual Studio using NuGet.
AppDynamics is making a free trial available for Windows Azure users.
