AppDynamics' big bet: Business, application, IT intelligence to merge
New Relic launches analytics tool dubbed Insights
In July, New Relic's Insights service became generally available. New Relic, like other players such as AppDynamics, are part of an emerging breed of applications performance management vendors bridging into business intelligence. New Relic targets mid-market and smaller enterprises while AppDynamics focuses on large companies.
To make Insights more accessible, New Relic highlighted Data Apps for Insights, which take the platform beyond developers and operations managers to less-technical employees. In theory, Data Apps for Insights could bring New Relic's wares to a broader audience and business executive roles in an enterprise.
New Relic also launched the following:
- New Relic Synthetics, which allows developers to run pre-production testing scenarios to identify performance issues with applications ahead of time.
- Crash reporting tools for New Relic Mobile, a feature that finds and fixes the bugs that cause mobile apps to fail.
