SAN FRANCISCO, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AppDynamics, Inc., the next-generation application performance management (APM) solution that simplifies the management of complex apps, today announced that it had selected AppDynamics to monitor the performance of its web site, AppDynamics.com. The company's marketing team evaluated multiple potential vendors but chose AppDynamics due to its unmatched ability to identify bottlenecks and resolve problems in production web sites.
Chris Tiwald, Technical Operations Engineer at Conductor who uses AppDynamics, commented, "I don't understand why the marketing team at AppDynamics didn't talk to me for this press release. I'm an actual customer who loves AppDynamics, and I would have been happy to share that we've seen amazing uptime, performance gains, and ability to correct critical web site problems fast using their easy-to-use and deploy solution. But if they want to do the press release by themselves, whatever, I'm fine with that, I guess."
The AppDynamics marketing team selected AppDynamics to monitor AppDynamics.com based on its ability to gain 100% visibility when monitoring their PHP environment, its rapid troubleshooting capability, and the solution's overall ease of use.
"The AppDynamics.com web site drives a majority of the leads that ultimately become revenue for the company, and therefore it's critical that we find and fix web site issues in record time," said Greg Howard, Sr. Director of Marketing at AppDynamics. "We've found that AppDynamics for PHP does exactly that. Another plus was its simplicity and lack of required configuration—after all, I was a liberal arts major and I need my APM tool to be simple."
"We evaluated other PHP solutions and found that they were hard to use, worked poorly in production, and had terrible looking dashboards," said Stephen Burton, Director of Product Marketing and Technology Evangelism for AppDynamics. "Only AppDynamics met the requirements of the AppDynamics marketing team. And I play poker with the sales guy, so that was a plus."
"If our solution is good enough for the likes of Netflix, Priceline, TiVo, AMICA Insurance, Hotels.com, StubHub, Staples, Insight Technologies, and Cornell University, it ought to be good enough for AppDynamics. Therefore, I'm pleased that the AppDynamics marketing team selected AppDynamics to monitor AppDynamics.com," said Jyoti Bansal, Founder and CEO of AppDynamics. "As we continue to disrupt the market with our application management solution designed for production environments, we're seeing companies flock to our new approach and throw out legacy vendors that are overly complex, expensive, and ill-suited for today's highly distributed applications. Furthermore, this validates that the people I hire have very good taste."
AppDynamics is the next-generation application performance management solution that simplifies the management of complex, business-critical apps. No one can stand slow applications—not IT Ops and Dev teams, not the CIO, and definitely not end users. With AppDynamics, no one has to tolerate slow performing apps ever again.
