At AppDynamics, it’s been our mission to equip enterprises with true Application Intelligence. As the expanded application ecosystem grows, many enterprises are using a combination of legacy, contemporary, and cutting-edge infrastructure components. So today we’re proud to announce we now integrate with over 100 extensions so users can leverage performance insights like never before. We strive to create a seamless extension ecosystem to merge with your current toolset.
The Application Intelligence Platform is open, extensible, and interoperable to fit any business need. Through our extension ecosystem, AppDynamics Exchange, our community comes together to share knowledge and contribute back extensions that provide deep integrations to the tools modern enterprises frequently use.
A few extension categories I’d like to highlight are:
Alerting extensions – allow creation of custom notifications to integration AppDynamics’ health rule violations and events with alerting or ticketing systems such as PagerDuty, VictorOps, ServiceNow, and Atlassian JIRA.
Cloud auto-scaling extensions – integration cloud orchestration functionality such as creating, destroying, restarting, configuring, and validating machine and image instances. These include Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
REST API & SDKs – enable retrieval of data from the AppDynamics system, including application and infrastructure metadata, metrics, events, and transaction snapshots. AppDynamics developer SDKs are available on Github. Through our API, you can download our Java SDK and the Python SDK.
With these integrations, users can monitor metrics within a business context, rapidly remediate issues, and automate baselining to detect glitches. Extensions also leverage the core Application Intelligence Platform including APM, mobile, and analytics.
Using AppDynamics and our slew of extensions, companies can help foster a DevOps culture and enable IT Ops, developers, and business professionals understand their application data, troubleshoot performance issues, and make strategic business decisions.
