Gaining operating efficiencies is at or near the top of every IT executive’s list of priorities.  As environments continue to evolve and become more complex, this goal becomes more difficult to achieve. The Application Intelligence platform from AppDynamics now has several features that make it easier for DevOps teams to collaborate in full context to reduce mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) and learn from the past to better manage future issues.

Virtual War Room

  • Ad-hoc virtual space for DevOps collaboration
  • View, annotate and make system changes in real-time
  • Collaborate to lower MTTR
