As modern IT applications have many dependency with other applications and Infrastructure, it has become impractical to manually troubleshoot with “siloed” monitoring tools. And these dependency are not just limited to private DC alone as many of the dependent applications are consumed as SaaS or hosted in public cloud. We leverage AppD as part of our DevOps teams to provide end-to-end visibility in a transaction level, so that Ops teams can quickly fix issues. We also use AppD during the Dev cycle to improve the quality of the code. Synthetic monitoring is also used, along with Webex alerts etc. to avoid issues in production. We will share some best practices based on IT’s real world experience.
