HPE Adds New Analytics to Help Developers Improve Application Delivery

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has added AppPulse Trace, a new module in its application performance monitoring software (APM) suite. According to HPE, the latest addition to the portfolio provides analytics to help developers identify and fix issues at their source, down to the exact line of code and server.

According to HPE, APM has become a big data problem, as mobile applications now produce large amounts of log files, making it difficult to find errors and server-side issues.  The new suite is targeted at alleviating the growing pressure on developers to deliver high performing applications in tight timeframes by providing code-level visibility that helps solve issues more quickly.

The HPE AppPulse Suite is integrated with the Application Delivery Management and IT Operations Management software portfolios, and leverages HPE Vertica, the company’s analytics engine, to create a combined solution to help organizations create, test, and monitor applications, including analysis of real-user interactions to identify errors, crashes and measure resource usage. 

The HPE AppPulse Suite allows developers to incorporate agile, DevOps, lean, and continuous delivery methodologies into their development process.

As SaaS offering, the suite consists of three integrated modules – HPE AppPulse Active, which enables developers to emulate real-user behavior, using scripts and synthetic transaction robots to identify problems and fix them before putting applications into production; HPE AppPulse Mobile, which allows customers to track the digital user experience of mobile apps in production, by giving developers and DevOps teams user data so they can prioritize issues and see the health of an app; and HPE AppPulse Trace, which helps find errors before they reach end users by isolating the problem.
