What you will learn in the Implementer Track

The Implementer Track consists of a prerequisite Power User Track and a Workshop. In the Power User Track, which provides the essential knowledge of AppDynamics necessary to move on to installing the platform, you’ll start with basic navigation, and quickly begin tackling more complex AppDynamics configuration and troubleshooting topics. After completing the Power User track, you’ll have a solid understanding of the AppDynamics platform and how to configure and customize the monitoring settings as well as troubleshoot many performance issues. Learn more about the Power Users Track.

The rest of the Implementer Track is geared to prepare you for implementing, administering, upgrading, and troubleshooting the full AppDynamics platform in the real world. After attending our Implementer Foundations Workshop you will put this knowledge to use in real world environments and gain the valuable field experience necessary to prepare you for one of our AppDynamics Implementer Certification exams.

This track is designed for Architects, Administrators, Consultants, and Engineers. who will install, administer and upgrade the AppDynamics platform.
