“We installed it on our pre-production staging environment just to see what the tool would do for us, and we were quite happy, and ended up deploying it in our production environment,” recalled Hathaway. With the AppDynamics solution, “We were able to dig down, dig deep into the code, and find out where our pain points were,” said Hathaway.
In addition, the AppDynamics platform was able to help Mindjet understand performance differences in software releases. “It is important to understand what's happening between releases,” said Hathaway. “We do extensive testing with our automation tools on our pre-production staging environments. However, it's not as easy to compare Release A with Release B using those tools. With AppDynamics, we can do that.”
