Implementer Foundations Workshop


The five day Implementer Foundations Workshop is designed for IT professionals who deploy AppDynamics technologies in on-premises enterprise environments. Using a hands-on case-based format, students install and upgrade the AppDynamics platform. This training was co-created with our Professional Services team and is used to train our own internal consultants as well as partners and customers. This course also provides a consistent foundation to gain the skills and experience to become an AppDynamics Certified Implementation Professional. This course isn't offered virtually.

As system environments are getting more and more complex, customized on-premise installation of AppDynamics is a task where you need to have deep knowledge of all AppDynamics key components and the relationships between them. The “AppDynamics Implementer Course” helped me to get this knowledge by first laying the required theoretical fundamentals. But the main benefit of this course is the intensive hands-on training, individual feedback and the discussions with the trainer and the other participants...
