Great having the opportunity to catch up with Andreas Grabner, Senior Technical Strategist, Development COE for Dynatrace at Dynatrace Perform 2018. I've had the opportunity to speak to Andi several times and learn a lot about the DevOps movement when he was the DevOps evangelist for Dynatrace.
Given all of the new announcements made at Perform 2018, I was anxious to find out which one Andreas felt would be most beneficial to developers and DevOps teams. He was quick to identify Management Zones as being a tremendous benefit for developers in the midst of a DevOps transformation since it provides monitoring throughout the SDLC.
For years, Andi has preached the importance of monitoring everything so developers and the DevOps team have the information they need to make well-informed decisions. However, with the increase in the number of tools and data you have to give the right data to the right people at the right time along the DevOps delivery pipeline to be useful rather than overwhelming.
Management Zones enables development teams to be more responsible and accountable for their code and for fixing it. Dev teams get good data to know if it’s good enough to push code to the next phase, thereby making an informed decision with data.
AI tells you if there’s a problem with the code along with the root cause of the problem. No false positives and identification of the root cause helps everyone be more efficient and productive.
CPU increases do not affect the bottom line because it improves the UX. You can monitor cool new stuff and legacy stuff and feed the AI with all of the data and control what data.
Devs will not be overwhelmed with data because we only feed data to Jenkins Bamboo that’s relevant. We feed anomalies and don't force developers to sift through more data than necessary. If there's a problem, we provide the level of detail to get to the root cause thus saving time and reducing frustration. Devs can drill down when necessary and the entire process can be automated.
A lot of this innovation comes with the use of Dynatrace as well as SAP driving innovation. We can deliver fast with our every two-week cadence.
