The latest release from AppDynamics, a Cisco company, will include their new Developer Toolkit and fresh updates for Enterprise iQ and Business iQ.
Launched late last week in Australia, the release hopes to improve customer experience measurement and assist application team efficiency.
CTO and head of product at AppDynamics Bhaskar Sunkara says application teams can expect Developer Toolkit to offer new levels of development life-cycle transparency and in real time.
“With our new Developer Toolkit, companies can give their application teams the context of how their code impacts the business and deliver innovation like a digital leader.”
In an industry where the boundaries of customer experience are being constantly pushed, Sunkara says companies can’t afford to lag behind.
“Today, the application is the business, creating immense pressure on organisations to deliver new experiences that ‘wow’ customers.
“And digital leaders continually raise the bar for what consumers expect from application experiences.”
AppDynamics Developer Toolkit features support for Goland, Xamarin and Android Studio Plugin. It also boasts an increased ability to target code that is succeeding the most through Live and Developer Mode Business Transactions features.
New crash analysis tools, including a smart crash alerts system, also hope to improve productivity. The tools allow application teams to spend less time on troubleshooting, leaving more time to build features.
The Spring ‘17 release is packaged with comprehensive Enterprise iQ and Business iQ enhancements including new License Management, Universal Agent and a bolstered iQ Metrics offering.
Reception has been positive so far, with the increase in collaborative potential hitting the right notes with users.
Research director at 451 Research Donnie Berkholz says the new toolkit allows teams to gain more impact.
“A frequent cause of underperforming application teams is a lack of collaboration or common goals.
“With its new Developer Toolkit, AppDynamics aims to help build stronger teams with more impactful results by providing a framework for measurement and shared ownership that teams can rally around.”
