Wow! 8 weeks in with Dynatrace and I’ve spent the last 3 weeks travelling around Australasia as part of our annual APAC #Perform event series. Like those who travel a fair bit for work, you’d know how tiring it can be, but nonetheless it has been an awesome trip and I’m back feeling more excited than ever! With events across Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Shanghai, I’ve had the opportunity to meet my colleagues (many whom I’ve met for the first time), over 1000 partners, technology alliances and customers from variety of industries.

Google Play takes aim at poor performing apps

Nobody in the app community will have missed that Google fired a major shot at poor performing apps last week.

Often, however, time frames are too far apart in time to compare trends in a sin... (more)
