To understand the impact of digital and the role of performance monitoring, AppDynamics recently conducted research with over 7,000 consumers, including 2,000 interviews in both the United States and the United Kingdom, and 1,000 interviews within Germany, France and Australia. Based on the raw data from that research we launched an all new report, the App Attention Index 2019, which provided a comprehensive analysis of emergent trends and attitudes related to digital behavior.
