How IT in the Age of Digital Transformation Is Like the Space Race By Susan Cole Next month will mark the 47th anniversary of Apollo 13. The film that recounts the story is a favorite of mine, probably because it so masterfully captures the incredible suspense, fear, and hope felt by people everywhere, that I personally recall very well. I also know how an organization’s digital transformation can generate similar reactions! Apollo 13 was likely a casualty of the space program’s incredibly aggressive schedule. NASA, with U.S. political and military leaders, was motivated by competition from the U.S.S.R. and fear of the potential consequences of not being first. Urgency often overruled caution. A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow. “First” is a competitive imperative in business, too, creating an urgency around digital innovation. But unlike the sp... (more)

Dynatrace partners, HCL Technologies & CSC stand tall in new Gartner report

Here at Dynatrace, we were pretty excited (but not completely surprised) to see a number of our partners making the A-list in Gartner’s newly launched Magic Quadrant report, which identifies the top 20 Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers Worldwide.

The Myth of Mission-Critical and #APM | @DevOpsSummit @Dynatrace #DevOps

The Myth of 'Mission-Critical': Irrational Thinking in Modern IT Management By Susan Cole I was reading an article today that discusses managing “mission-critical” applications. I really dislike that term. It’s trite, it’s dated – even nonsensical. It suggests that applications fall into two groups – mission-critical, and…optional? marginal? unnecessary? one step away from being voted off the island? Here’s the fallacy with that view – people that run IT organizations are smart, and they invest in stuff that matters to the business. They don’t run apps that don’t provide value be... (more)

Automated naming of mobile user-actions & grouping of web requests

Keeping up with new mobile-app features has traditionally been a real challenge when relying on manual instrumentation. Automatic instrumentation has proven to be extremely efficient at quickly instrumenting mobile apps—without requiring manual configuration of source code. With auto-instrumentation, you’re guaranteed of instrumenting all of your mobile-app’s new features as they come online. One downside of automatic instrumentation is that, in some cases, automatic detection and naming of user actions and grouping of web requests has been less than optimal. This issue is addr... (more)
