Who Is This Course For?

This Administrator Course is designed for teams who already have some understanding of AppDynamics and perhaps have attended one of our Operators, Developers or Power User courses. 

Anyone who wants or needs to be an advanced user should seek out this AppDynamics administrator course. Going beyond Operator or Developer course and including special Controller configuration and user management topics, including user and root password management, this half-day course empowers an administrator to oversee, manage, and customize the AppDynamics platform.

Every enterprise that depends on application performance needs an AppDynamics champion in-house, and there is no quicker route to becoming one than through an administrator course. 

Note:  This course is relevant for customers using our on-premise controller. It is not relevant for those using our cloud-based SaaS controller hosting service.
