Providing a great digital experience is critical for your brand, but the complexity of monitoring modern apps presents a challenge. When you combine a mix of mobile and Web applications, containers and microservices in distributed environments, identifying when and why your customers are having a poor app experience is often difficult.
Join us for this webinar where Bryan Whitmarsh, Director, Product Management at CA Technologies will demonstrate how you can achieve a 5-star app experience for your customers. See how CA App Experience Analytics leverages a powerful, open source analytics platform to provide user experience insights and deep visibility into performance across apps and channels.
Containers and microservice architectures simplify the development process, provide environmental consistency and speed updates; however, there are operational trade-offs. The ephemeral nature combined with API-centric communications results in a massive increase in objects, dependencies and metrics – challenging traditional monitoring approaches, including: topology mapping, instrumentation, and static baselining and alerting. New monitoring techniques and approaches are now needed to gain visibility and control over these dynamic platforms across the application lifecycle.
View this webcast to learn:
• What new monitoring, analytics and alerting techniques are best suited for containers.
• Why an open data model is key to understanding and tracking microservice dependencies.
• How to establish monitoring across the entire application lifecycle to increase development speed and quality.
In this golden age of software applications, delivering a great customer experience at scale is a business differentiator. Microservices platforms, containers and cloud-native applications promise faster time-to-market but introduce unparalleled complexity. Added value can quickly be eroded by failing to understand and manage your application performance across environments that are in a constant state of change.
Join us for this special webcast, where guest speaker Dean Davison, Principal Consultant, Forrester Research will discuss findings from the recent Total Economic ImpactTM (TEI) of CA Application Performance Management (APM) that can assist businesses evaluating this solution – including the potential to realize: $5.4 Million NPV, 316% ROI and payback in 3 months.
Joining Dean, Pete Waterhouse, Advisor, CA Technologies will outline the essential elements of a modern APM solution needed to deliver these outcomes.
Containerized applications and microservices challenge existing monitoring tools and processes. The ephemeral nature of containers presents massive tracking issues and the massive increase in objects, service and metrics makes traditional alerting obsolete.
In this webcast, you will learn:
• The benefits of using an agentless application monitoring approach in Docker environments
• How an open data model is key to understanding and tracking microservice relationships and dependencies
• The importance of analytics-driven monitoring to help detect anomalies, predict problems and prevent alert storms
The collection of performance, usage, and error/crash data is a critical first step in building an application or infrastructure based analytics engine. Once collected, the normalization of this data into a proficient repository, that makes the data available to be analyzed, becomes the foundation of your Analytics initiatives.
In this interactive webcast, experts from CA Technologies will facilitate some key topics related to using the ELK stack as a basis for their Analytics engine, sharing their lessons learned and best practices. The ELK stack is a set of products (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) provided by Elastic used to log, store, and visualize both structured and unstructured data. We’ll answer these questions, and more in this webcast:
•Why leverage the ELK Stack as part of your analytics strategy?
•Lessons learned in running Elasticsearch at scale (Master Nodes + Client Nodes + Hot Nodes + Warm Nodes)
•How to best support multi-tenant SaaS solutions with ELK
•Elasticsearch is just one component of a Lambda Architecture, what else can/should be used?
•How you can leverage CA’s new Agile Ops analytics platform to predict performance anomalies, end alert storms and false positives and leverage machine learning for faster root cause analysis.
Modern application technologies make it possible to provide a better user experience than ever before. With elevated end-user expectations, the difference between success and failure is an organization's ability to efficiently harness the power of complex application architectures to meet customers demands. An application performance management solution that sees through the data deluge to answer critical questions is more important today than ever before.
In this webcast, we will explore:
-Application performance management's role in modern IT organizations
-CA Application Performance Management's role in providing stellar end-user experience
-New innovations within CA Application Performance Management
Over the past 20+ years, IT has mastered the art of collecting performance and user data. But to succeed in today’s application economy, you need to learn how to take this information and evolve into a data-driven business. Your success hinges on ensuring that every customer experience is the best it can be, and that means gaining insight across the vast complexity of your mobile, web and application environments. In this session, learn how analytics can sort the wheat from the chaff in your performance data to highlight key business insights that will separate you from your competitors and gain you a seat in the boardroom.
The new CA Application Performance Management (CA APM) Jenkins plugin helps organizations to leverage CA APM in the pre-production environment by integrating with Jenkins, one of the most popular continuous integration tools. With this plugin, the critical pre-production test data can now be seamlessly brought into Jenkins and presented in a unified cross-build or per build dashboard. It enables the users to configure build pass or fail conditions and automate the decision making process without any manual intervention. Watch this webinar to learn more and see the demo.
Microservices, Cloud Foundry and Dockerized applications are adding a new layer of complexity to an already complex application environment. When application issues arise, it becomes difficult to pinpoint the source and, too often, you find yourself in lengthy war rooms or assigning experts to triage every issue. As a result, brand loyalty, customer satisfaction and innovation are negatively impacted. The old approach to application performance management just isn’t working. A new approach is needed. In this session you will learn how to monitor these new modern applications to ensure the customer experience. We’ll also demo CA APM in action monitoring a Dockerized application.
