Dynatrace Delivers Software Intelligence as Code

Dynatrace announced it is delivering software intelligence, including broad and deep observability, application security, and advanced AIOps capabilities, as code. This enables developers who are adopting everything-as-code practices to easily incorporate software intelligence capabilities into their applications. As a result, they can automate the orchestration of all resources across the software development lifecycle that are required to deliver cloud-native applications and infrastructure at scale. In addition, developers can ensure their applications achieve standards and service level objectives (SLOs) for critical metrics, including performance, quality, and security, or automatically initiate corrective action when these standards are not met. These enhancements to Dynatrace help development teams bring higher quality, more secure innovations to market faster, and with greater efficiency.

"As organizations shift left, developers take on the responsibility for ensuring code is high-quality, performant, and secure," said Stephen Elliot, Group Vice President, I&O, Cloud Operations, and DevOps at IDC. "Simultaneously, they are asked to ship new applications and features quickly. To achieve all requirements and ensure code complies with organizational standards, teams are embracing everything-as-code practices. Incorporating observability, application security, and AIOps capabilities as code helps to close the gaps between the seemingly competing needs for faster innovation and higher quality."

By enabling developers to access libraries of templates for reusable configurations, Dynatrace makes it easier for development teams to establish and adhere to organizational best practices for observability and security, without adding friction to the development process. This is made possible through additional application program interface (API) endpoints, which enable and extend configuration-as-code for multiple Dynatrace® capabilities, including anomaly detection and alerting, dashboarding and analytics, and data enrichment.

"It is a consistent challenge for us to streamline and accelerate the software development process without sacrificing the performance and security of our applications," said Ken Schirrmacher, Sr. Director of Information Technology at Park ‘N Fly. "With these enhancements, Dynatrace enables us to easily enhance the observability and security of our digital services and adhere to all of our critical operational metrics and standards. This also allows us to automate time-consuming and complex configuration processes, and issue remediation, particularly in pre-production. As a result, we're able to focus our time on delivering digital innovation for our customers."

"Organizations adopting practices like GitOps and infrastructure-as-code also require observability and automation-as-code to increase speed and resiliency," said Steve Tack, SVP of Product Management at Dynatrace. "Unlike alternative solutions that stop with basic metrics and require manual configuration, Dynatrace extends to intelligent observability, advanced AIOps, and application security. These capabilities drive real-time actions to ensure teams achieve SLOs and optimize critical business metrics. This enables development, DevOps, and SRE teams to bring high quality, secure innovations to market faster, and at enterprise-scale."

These enhancements to the Dynatrace platform will be available within 90 days of this announcement. Please read the Dynatrace blog to learn more about how Dynatrace delivers software intelligence as code.
