AppDynamics and Splunk Transform the Way Customers Manage Application Performance

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – November 29, 2012 – AppDynamics, Inc., the leading application performance management (APM) solution for modern application architectures, announced today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Splunk, the leading provider of software for real-time operational intelligence, to provide a groundbreaking new approach to troubleshooting application performance issues.

With an unsurpassed ability to monitor the performance of mission-critical applications with application diagnostics and infrastructure data, the AppDynamics and Splunk® Enterprise integration accelerates collaboration between Development and Operations teams by improving their ability to identify, troubleshoot and resolve application performance and availability issues.

"Being able to bridge two indispensable tools such as AppDynamics and Splunk Enterprise is absolutely essential to our day-to-day operations,” said John Martin, Sr. Director of Production Engineering at Edmunds.com. “We use AppDynamics to help us identify performance hotspots, and once those hotspots are identified, we move into Splunk Enterprise to help us correlate this information with machine data from our infrastructure. The ability to go into one of these tools and click my way into one or the other at that exact point in time for an issue that I'm researching is just fantastic.”

Whereas AppDynamics is renowned for its ability to identify application performance hotspots in minutes, Splunk is celebrated for contextualizing operational intelligence from machine data such as log files, events, and metrics from all components of the datacenter technology stack. Customers now have the opportunity to leverage seamless integration between the AppDynamics and Splunk solutions, gaining wider application intelligence and operational visibility.

The AppDynamics and Splunk Enterprise integration includes the ability to view AppDynamics policy violations in the context of event data in Splunk software, the ability to view Splunk Enterprise events in the context of performance metrics in AppDynamics, as well as the ability to export select AppDynamics metrics to Splunk software for longer-term trending and analysis.

Specific benefits of the AppDynamics-Splunk Enterprise integration include:

  • Increased operational awareness of end user incidents and faster troubleshooting
  • Lower Mean-Time-to-Resolution with the ability to troubleshoot with a common context between AppDynamics and Splunk Enterprise
  • Increased productivity as Splunk software users can now better prioritize which events are responsible for poor end user experience and business impact

“We are excited about our strategic alliance with AppDynamics,” said Bill Gaylord, senior vice president of business development, Splunk. “The AppDynamics integration with Splunk Enterprise makes it easier for organizations to contextualize their deep dive application metrics from AppDynamics with all other machine-generated data from their applications and infrastructure in Splunk Enterprise.”

“AppDynamics has found that our customers are just as passionate about Splunk Enterprise as they are with our own world-class application performance management solution,” said Stuart Horne, vice president of business development, AppDynamics. “I’m enthusiastic about integrating these complementary products in order to provide our customers with an even greater ability to troubleshoot application problems quickly. The team at Splunk is fantastic to work with, and we expect to enjoy a long and prosperous relationship with them.”
