Hello, AppDynamics readers!

If you’re new to our customer newsletter, welcome! And if you haven’t seen our newsletter in a little while, don’t worry, we’re back from a rejuvenating sabbatical.

Now that we're back in action, we're excited to be bringing you a regular cadence of content related to application performance monitoring, the burgeoning world of AIOps, as well as the latest in cloud and DevOps, business insights, and a round-up of our best content from the AppDynamics blog and beyond.

So, without further ado, here's a look back at 2019 and the Top 5 Things to Know.


We're Solving Your Pain Points

Save yourself from alert storms

It’s easier to avoid false alerts and overall performance noise if you define and configure alerts based on warning conditions.

3 new ways to streamline:

1. Temporary spikes in performance data are a major cause of false alerts. With Persistence Thresholds, you can readily reduce alert noises and ensuring false alerts are minimized.
2. You can now define a Boolean Expression to evaluate health rule conditions using AND and OR operators. Learn how to configure Health Rule Conditions.
3. Set recurrence patterns and add time zones easily with Health Rule Schedules.

Visualize actionable data

Business Analytics and Dashboard Landing Page
From the transaction and browser to mobile events, the new Analytics Home page provides a holistic view of your Analytics data. See how at Resource Performance Dashboard

Design Dashboards in Minutes with Dash Studio
With release 4.5.16, customers have access to Dash Studio, the new dashboarding experience with improvements to visualize critical data in minutes. In AppDynamics SaaS version 4.5.13, higher retention of granular metrics in the Controller has been increased from one to eight days; allowing more time for detailed analysis, reducing the need to export data for external retention, and enabling AppDynamics to use machine learning to configure baselines and health rules.

Adding value through Microsoft Azure and AWS partnerships

AppDynamics continues to pioneer innovation by providing .NET Core 3.0 support along with enhanced support for App Service Web Apps, WebJobs, and Azure Functions; Modernize Applications By Leveraging Microsoft Azure Platform and Services.

Serverless APM for AWS Lambda is now generally available
Serverless APM, supporting instrumentation of AWS Lambda applications and microservices in Java and Node.js, is now available to our SaaS customers through the AWS Marketplace.

Amazon ELB Cloudwatch Integration
AppDynamics users can now view Amazon-hosted entities and data in several products by connecting their Amazon account to AppDynamics. See Customize Flow Maps.

Extending observability with cloud native

New open-source observability standards are gaining significant steam, and we’re proud to be one of the first to support the OpenTracing Project. The new OpenTracer uses OpenTracing APIs to capture all the BTs, Snapshots, SEPs, Callgraphs and corresponding metrics from your self-instrumented applications.
