As the waves of digital transformation continue to spread across and reach all corners of the federal government, agencies are hard at work modernizing their systems, networks, and applications, as well as their critical constituent-facing solutions and services. And as the government makes the shift towards modernized IT environments, it is imperative that the applications, services, and solutions that federal agencies employ are optimized at the highest levels of performance, speed, and visibility, while simultaneously ensuring a seamless experience for end-users.
At the forefront, assisting the federal government in proactively managing and optimizing its back-end operations, is AppDynamics. Through AppDynamics’ application mapping, dynamic baselining, code-level diagnostics, and end-to-end performance monitoring capabilities, federal agencies are now able to have the critical visibility and insights into their applications that will simplify and solve any challenges they may face.
Here are four ways that federal government agencies are benefitting from dynamic and optimized performance monitoring:
Monitor application performance proactively
Using advanced machine learning, federal agencies are able to view application performance on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, establishing a dynamic baseline. When an app deviates from the baseline, the agency is alerted so they can quickly identify and resolve potential problems before users are impacted or a mission is adversely affected. Through real-time visibility into an app’s performance and dependencies, government agencies are better informed and more prepared to address modernization and application upgrade issues.
Reduced mean time to resolution (MTTR)
When application problems occur, a government agency can quickly identify the root cause — whether it is in development, test, or production — based on how the app is relating to its surrounding infrastructure.
Anomaly detection capabilities enabled with artificial intelligence alert federal agencies immediately when anomalous behavior occurs and pinpoints where it is occurring, allowing for fast mitigation and minimized user impact. With a holistic view of an application’s performance and code-level diagnostics, agencies dramatically lower MTTR, enable faster troubleshooting and eliminate war-room finger pointing.
Enhanced cloud migration visibility
When transitioning to the cloud, AppDynamics helps agencies ensure their applications are optimized to leverage the power, scalability, and efficiencies of a modern cloud architecture. With in-depth before and after-application performance baselines, risks associated with migration can be minimized by ensuring application availability and performance service level agreements are honored, and any performance gaps are quickly identified and rectified.
Optimized end-user experience
AppDynamics’ deep visibility into users’ application experiences provides an understanding of how usage variables, such as a user location, browser version, or device type, relate to performance issues that could affect mission outcomes. Comprehensive dashboards show whether applications are running as expected or abnormally, and how the application code or IT infrastructure can be adjusted for better performance and reliability.
