Cisco AppDynamics announced major updates to its cloud-native observability solution AppDynamics Cloud.

Business transaction insights combines business transaction monitoring with AppDynamics Cloud’s continuous-context experience. This allows organizations to expand observability over cloud-native applications correlated with business context across their Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment and beyond. The AIOps-derived insights enable teams to observe applications the same way customers and end users experience them and quickly take action to optimize performance and remediate issues in near real-time.

The new capabilities will initially support digital services, cloud-native applications, and workloads on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Cisco AppDynamics and AWS continue to empower organizations across the entire IT estate on their journey to full-stack observability.

With business transaction insights, teams can leverage multiple streams of data drawn from OpenTelemetry and Amazon CloudWatch, all correlated to business context, and then optimize digital experiences at scale. They generate AIOps-driven alerts that allow teams to identify, prioritize, and resolve the most important issues that could impact the user experience and the overall business.

The addition of this new capability in AppDynamics Cloud gives technologists the simplicity and insights they need to streamline operations, increase business value of AWS products and services, and maximize current and future investments in areas including Kubernetes, microservices, and other AWS infrastructure.

“With AppDynamics Cloud, we are reimagining the cloud-native observability market,” said Ronak Desai SVP/GM Cisco AppDynamics and Cisco Full-Stack Observability. “Cisco AppDynamics is enabling visibility of an organization’s entire cloud-native landscape and generating insights based on an intelligent relationship model. With the addition of business transaction insights to AppDynamics Cloud, IT teams can now act with the information needed to make business-critical decisions and break down the new siloes that exist across their cloud-native monitoring landscapes. We are helping customers realize the vision of Cisco Full-Stack Observability and bringing genuine visibility, insight, and actions to their entire IT environment.”
