As Senior Development Manager at RP Data, David Garry, oversees development efforts in Australia, while working closely with development teams in New Zealand, Philippines and India. Teams are comprised of both internal developers and vendors who work closely together to create and maintain services that deliver RP Data’s real estate data and analytics.
These services are developed in technologies such as Java, .NET, SQL Server, Postgres and are required to integrate with external systems such as Google Maps, Payment gateways, Titles offices as well as RP Data’s vast property database.
RP Data quickly conducted an APM vendor review, which included AppDynamics and New Relic. The CTO of RP Data had experience with AppDynamics, and was a strong advocate for the solution. “Based on our CTO’s previous review and our research, we determined that New Relic could deliver some of the necessary insight, but we’d still require quite a bit of further investigation. Conversely, we knew that we could quickly deploy AppDynamics and determine exactly what was happening right away.
The AppDynamics solution delivers immediate value for RP Data and can be used by non-technical staff as well as developers and testers. Garry has championed it throughout his organization and the entire product team and senior management use the tool on a regular basis.
