AppDynamics is excited to unveil details behind our new Application Intelligence Platform which is the technology foundation for the AppDynamics portfolio of performance monitoring, automation and analytics solutions (transaction analytics was also announced today).
Today’s software defined businesses need the ability to see everything in their application environment, act with certainty, and know faster. See, Act, & Know, the three core pillars of Application Intelligence.
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. Traditional approaches to solving this problem are typically silo’d in their view providing limited business correlation and only present static data. In order to keep up with todays complexity, what’s needed is a platform that can collect, understand, and act on the data and translate that into actionable information about your business.
The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform is uniquely able to deliver rich performance data, learning, and analytics, combined with the flexibility to adapt to virtually any infrastructure or software environment. The platform was designed for the modern day application, including SOA architectures, frequent agile releases, cloud deployments, big data technologies and mobile delivery – and maintains a unique low-overhead architecture. This gives you the ability to instantly see the impact of production changes as you work, and adapt to optimize performance and minimize bottlenecks while ensuring the revenues are maximized.
Today’s consumer-driven world moves faster than ever. Everything from your customer experience to revenue depends on your business-critical applications performing at their highest level. AppDynamics delivers real-time access to every aspect of your performance, so you can anticipate problems, resolve them automatically, and make smarter, more certain business decisions. This includes detailed understanding of the user experience, business data such as real time revenue metrics, deep application performance and infrastructure data. All collected within context of business & operational transactions.
Platform Design Principles:
The Application Intelligence Platform is the underlying architecture that we use to deliver all of the capabilities a modern business needs to keep their business running at peak performance and use application intelligence as a competitive advantage.
The core design principles behind the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform include:
The interactions customers have with the business are highly dynamic, environments are larger and more hybrid and organizations are demanding IT transform the business faster than ever. AppDynamics monitors many of the largest, most complex enterprise application environments in the world, supporting environments up to 10,000 nodes on a single management server. This is critical for customers who do not want to manage and maintain a farm of servers.
Our platform was designed to be a production tool from the very beginning, giving it a unique low-overhead architecture. Intelligent data collection to ensure the lowest production overhead in the market. AppDynamics correlates end user business transaction details with completion status (success, error, exception), response times, and all other data points measured at any given time. It automatically analyzes the entire data set to provide information from which to draw conclusions and take the appropriate action.
Auto-instrumentation, and minimal configuration enables simple and intuitive operation for any size business. AppDynamics has a unique ability to instrument your application, learning its transactions, code execution behavior, and normal performance patterns. It can adapt and adjust instrumentation automatically when you change your application-no manual configuration needed.
Open and Extensible:
The AppDynamics platform is open, extensible, and interoperable to fit any business need. Through the AppDynamics Exchange our community comes together to share knowledge and contribute back over 100 extensions that provide deep integrations to the tools you already use like Splunk, Apica, PagerDuty, and Amazon Web Services. From monitoring Amazon Web Services costs to MEAS mainframes our extensions allow you to leverage the tools you already have in place. We believe you own your data and it should be easy to consume and analyze which is why we provide REST APIs and SDKs available on GitHub that make it as easy as possible to get started.
The platform can be deployed in any operating model, including on-premise, SaaS, private cloud, or a hybrid combination. It’s always the exact same platform and there are no cost implications associated regardless of deployment model.
Provides enterprise grade security with Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), LDAP, and SaaS certifications that guarantee security and compliance.
What services are delivered on the Application Intelligence Platform?
The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform gives companies the foundation they need to monitor performance and extract meaningful analytics from their business applications. Software-defined businesses must be certain that their most complex, business-critical applications are performing at the highest level; and be certain that the data and information generated by these applications can be harnessed for ongoing business advantage and impact. AppDynamics’ Application Intelligence platform enables customers to monitor, respond, and analyze their application environment.

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.
- Event correlation shows the relationship of performance, change, and business events.
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.
Compare and analyze the side-by side performance of different versions of an application.
Custom drag and drop HTML5 dashboards can be configured to any specification to deliver clear actionable results.
- Query language allows easy, targeted data discovery.
