AppDynamics found that 96 percent agree that the ability to monitor all technical areas across their IT stack and directly link technical performance to business outcomes will be important during 2021. Two-thirds of respondents answered that this will be very important. In addition, 92 percent say that linking technology performance to business outcomes and showing ROI will be important to delivering innovation over the next year.

83 percent of technologists agreed that their job has become more complex over the last year. When asked about which factors contributed to increased technology complexity, 80 percent listed a new set of priorities and challenges and 78 percent named the technology sprawl and a patchwork of legacy and cloud technologies.

In the company’s press release, AppDynamics’ vice president and general manager Linda Tong stated: “Full-stack observability is the only way technologists can deal with the sprawling IT estate and increased complexity created by such rapid rates of innovation. But on its own, it’s just not enough. Technologists have recognized that without business context, they will quickly find themselves drowning in complexity and data noise. As a part of Cisco, AppDynamics is uniquely positioned to leverage the breadth of Cisco’s domain expertise in network, application, infrastructure and security – while also providing the business context they are known for.”
