AppDynamics, a Cisco company and leader in application intelligence, has officially announced the availability of AppDynamics for SAP - an application performance management solution that provides the deepest visibility from code-level insights to customer taps, swipes and clicks — helping enterprises deliver the flawless experiences their customers demand.
With the SAP platform currently handling 77% of global transactions revenue, it only seems natural for the development team at AppDynamics to build compatibility for SAP. In fact, Chief Strategy Officer, Thomas Wyatt stated:
The modern enterprise is in a challenging position. To satisfy customer expectations, it needs to meet the demands of an agile, digital business, while also maintaining and operating essential core systems.

The following features highlight the general release of AppDynamics for SAP:
ABAP Code-level Diagnostics —Through AppDynamics’ Business Transactions and its groundbreaking native ABAP agent monitoring, enterprises have insights into SAP environments like never before. This breakthrough enables code and database performance monitoring, dynamic baselines, and transaction snapshots when performance deviates from the norm, drastically reducing mean time to repair (MTTR).
Intelligent Alerting — AppDynamics for SAP baselines normal performance and intelligently alerts IT based on health rules that are automatically set for key performance metrics on every Business Transaction. These intelligent alerting policies reduce the noise from siloed monitoring tools and also integrate with existing enterprise workflow tools, including ServiceNow, PagerDuty, and JIRA. Now operations teams can break out of their siloes and work directly in the tools they already use.
Confident Cloud Migrations — Lifting and shifting SAP business applications is expensive, time-consuming and error-prone. Because AppDynamics for SAP provides complete visibility into SAP environments, enterprises moving their SAP applications to the cloud can more effectively plan application migrations and measure post-migration results to ensure the same or better levels of user experience.
S/4HANA Adoption — The movement towards S/4HANA is of high strategic importance to most SAP users for performance and support requirements, but the transition can introduce technical and business challenges. By automatically detecting SAP Business Transactions and baselining performance, AppDynamics for SAP provides more insight and visibility into downstream dependencies, giving enterprises the confidence to adopt S/4HANA.
