Dynatrace announced Session Replay, which allows organizations to play back unique web or mobile sessions in a “movie-like” experience, providing an end-to-end record of the customer journey from the user’s perspective.

Session Replay joins Dynatrace’s Real User and Synthetic Monitoring capabilities to extend the company’s all-in-one digital experience management offering.

With the Session Replay enhanced digital experience management offering, organizations can significantly improve service quality and increase overall customer and brand satisfaction through AI-powered insights into user experience across all devices and digital channels.

Dynatrace’s digital experience management offering is purpose-built for modern cloud and single page applications; overcoming the limitations of traditional network-based approaches and other point solutions, which are unable to provide integrated visibility into modern environments. Now with Session Replay, IT and digital business teams benefit from a solution that is:

- High fidelity – Session Replay lets organizations visualize their user journeys in 4K by showing exactly what people see in a movie-like experience, and then indexing user sessions for easy search and analysis.

- Easy and automatic – The new Session Replay capability features fully automatic deployment and continuous auto-discovery, making it easy to implement and manage even in highly dynamic environments, compared to point solutions requiring manual instrumentation and configuration.

- All-in-one – The new Session Replay capability is an integral part of Dynatrace’s Digital Experience Management solution alongside Real User Monitoring and Synthetic Monitoring, and leverages the Dynatrace® AI engine to automatically understand where problems are and who is affected.

- End-to-end – Issues seen with Session Replay can be tracked through the entire cloud stack to the precise root cause, even down to a specific line of problematic code, in a particular DevOps release.

“The addition of Session Replay marks an important milestone in our mission to transform the way organizations monitor, track and enhance their digital user experiences by enabling organizations to see what users are experiencing first-hand. As part of our DEM and advanced AI capabilities, Session Replay makes it easier to see a user journey, so teams can identify where poor experiences are occurring, and implement improvements to optimize,” said Steve Tack, SVP of Product Management at Dynatrace.

Dynatrace Session Replay is currently available via an Early Adopters Program, with general availability to follow.

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure.

Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
