FYI, this story is more than a year old

Dynatrace has extended its Davis AI engine to enable development, SRE, and IT teams to conduct ad hoc, exploratory analytics.

The move will provide teams with Dynatrace's causal AI to investigate newly emerging trends or block potential issues such as unexpected spikes in traffic or degrading performance.

This improvement builds on the Davis engine's existing capabilities, including automatic and continuous full-stack monitoring, processing trillions of dependencies in real-time and delivering precise answers and intelligent automation from data.

This will give teams the ability to get even more from their applications and infrastructure and avoid problems long before they turn into issues that will impact customers to maintain flawless and secure digital services.

"We rely on Dynatrace to ensure our applications are available 24/7, and the platform's Davis AI engine is particularly critical to this effort," says Alex Hibbitt, Group SRE Director at albelli-Photobox Group.

"The insights we get from Davis have been game-changing for our teams because they are prioritised by business impact and detail the precise root cause of what's impacting the performance of our digital services.

"Extending Davis to allow for more experimental analytics on-demand will allow us to optimise our environment and block performance problems that might eventually impact our customers. This helps us avoid fire drills and ensure our clouds and customer experiences are always optimised."

This enhancement to the Dynatrace platform will become generally available in the next month.

"Our Davis AI engine was purpose-built to help organisations overcome modern cloud complexity and ensure optimal user experience," says Steve Tack, Product Management Senior Vice President at Dynatrace.

"By extending Davis to deliver on-demand, exploratory analytics, Dynatrace is well-positioned within the market to enable development, SRE, and IT teams to analyse any observability signal at any time with deterministic AI.

"This provides a more granular and comprehensive analysis of complex cloud environments, empowering teams to spend more of their time innovating."

The extension of its Davis AI engine comes after ISG named Dynatrace a Leader in the 2022 ISG Provider Lens, Cloud-native Services and Solutions reports.

ISG assessed thirteen observability providers and seventeen security providers based on two primary criteria, Competitive Strength and Portfolio Attractiveness. The firm named Dynatrace a Leader with the top overall position in cloud-native observability and a Leader in cloud-native security.

According to the company, the convergence of observability and security is accelerating, and this recognition from ISG reflects Dynatrace's strong position in this expanded market.

Dynatrace's unified software intelligence platform combines broad and deep observability and continuous runtime application security with advanced AIOps to provide answers and intelligent automation from data at an enormous scale.

This is designed to enable innovators to modernise and automate cloud operations, deliver software faster and more securely, and ensure seamless digital experiences. Many large organisations utilise Dynatrace's platform to accelerate digital transformation.
