The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform

The intelligent platform for driving application intelligence

In the modern marketplace, enterprises are defined by the software running their business. And their revenues—not to mention reputation—are defined by customer interactions with this software. It’s no longer a matter of simply deploying web and mobile applications, and then letting them run as they will. The complexities of today’s business environment demand a smarter and more disruptive approach to application management. They demand end-to-end, insight-driven management that only the Application Intelligence Platform from AppDynamics can deliver.

Application Intelligence, intelligently applied

Too much data, from too many sources? Or too little? It’s difficult to say which is the greater handicap to today’s software-defined business. The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform eliminates the blind spots by enabling your business to see everything in your application environment, act with certainty based on this view, and then know—faster—how application performance is affecting your business.
