Some vendors use time-based correlation to connect events across multiple observed data sets, and claim there’s a connection between two observed data sets. This type of approach is flawed and can lead to wildly inaccurate conclusions, which itself leads to wasted time by technical teams and high cost to the business. In the chart below we observe the Number of Requests and the Memory Utilization. Wow, the increase in the Number of Requests is causing memory utilized to go up. Quick, call Engineering and get them on this right away. We can easily see that there’s a correlation between the Number of requests and the memory size. Based on this data it would be relatively easy to conclude that the increase in R... (more)

How Ulta Beauty is Pushing the limits of application visibility

Successful digital transformation requires visibility across silos of technology, development, and operations. While tracking some of this information can be relatively simple, gaining visibility into third-party applications–“black boxes”—is a serious challenge for many organizations. BUT the Ulta team uses Dynatrace as a lighthouse in the fog, adding visibility and insight to performance, execution and metrics that were previously obscured by black boxes. Check how, with increased visibility to application performance, the Dev team better understands previously hidden elemen... (more)
