Now An Established Leader in APM: AppDynamics

Before I jump into all the wonderful statistics, achievements and accolades AppDynamics has had recently, I first want to spend a minute talking about what we do. When an application slows down or crashes in production, we tell customers why in minutes so they can fix the app, and keep their business up and running. There you go–pretty simple, right? Except that it’s really not. And believe me 35+ vendors have been trying for the past decade. For me, the best compliment I’ve heard to date from a customer was “your stuff just works.” They generally don’t comment on our bells, whistles, pretty graphics or features; they just solve real-life problems with our software. Imagine that for a second–actually solving problems for customers. This simple benefit is pretty much why we’re disrupting the APM marketplace right now. We solve real-life problems for our customers t... (more)

AppDynamics Pumps up the Jam in San Francisco

It’s been a week since we hosted AppJam Americas, our first North American user conference in San Francisco. With myself as master of ceremonies, and a minor wardrobe malfunction at the start (see video at the end of this post), the entire day was a huge success for us and our customers. One thing that stuck in my mind was that applications today have become way more complex to manage—and strategic monitoring has become key to mastering that complexity. Simply put, SOA+Virtualization+Big Data+Cloud+Agile != Easy. The day started with Jyoti Bansal, our CEO and Founder outlining his vision to be the world’s #1 solution for managing modern web applications. The simple facts are that applications have become more dynamic, distributed and virtual.
