We’re excited to announce a collaboration with IBM that brings the power of the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform to the IBM Cloud Marketplace. IBM customers looking to further simplify application development and operations for increased innovation and the industry’s lowest overall TCO can opt to include AppDynamics at no additional cost.
As more and more enterprise companies rely on a cloud platform to support new and innovative applications to keep pace with rapidly changing business requirements, pairing the Application Intelligence Platform with the IBM Cloud marketplace simply makes sense. Together these technologies provide the nimbleness of the Cloud, the stable, reliable service expected from IBM, and AppDynamics’ unparalleled visibility and control for managing and improving application performance while simultaneously extracting intelligence from ‘in production’ apps to both inform line of business executives and help drive better business decisions.
AppDynamics has also partnered with IBM to develop support for IBM DataPower, IBM’s popular purpose-built messaging appliance used within highly secure enterprises, including leading banks around the world.
The AppDynamics Monitoring Extension for DataPower provides IBM DataPower customers with end-to-end visibility for the best possible control over applications with complex security and reliability requirements. All the metrics gathered from DataPower into AppDynamics by this extension are automatically and dynamically baselined and alerts can be set up on AppDynamics to:
notify administrators, operators or other ticketing applications if any metrics breach undesirable thresholds in real-time
automatically remediate problems based on health-rule violations
Unlike other application monitoring providers, AppDynamics allows DataPower users to mix and match which portions of the application intelligence platform they’d like to deploy to best meet individual needs. This is not an all-or-nothing offering with pay-for-support fine lines.
With the AppDynamics Monitoring Extension for DataPower, customers can now automatically correlate their dashboards and snapshots to their business critical applications:
Application dashboard with DataPower as a custom exit point
Fully correlated snapshots
Of course, AppDynamics has had long-standing support for IBM products like WebSphere application server, WebSphereMQ and IBM DB2, with customers also monitoring IBM commerce platforms like IBM Yantra and IBM Sterling Commerce. The addition of AppDynamics as an IBM Cloud Marketplace offering together with the new support for IBM DataPower are just two more examples of the collaboration with IBM for the benefit of our mutual enterprise customers.
We look forward to continuing to work alongside IBM for their customers as they create, manage and optimize their business critical applications.
