  • You’ve deployed that mission critical application … Now what?

    It’s taken weeks, months, … to develop and test that mission critical application. Finally, it’s been deployed and you can take a little breather. That is until the CIO comes into your office and begins asking some very important questions.

    Whether it’s a web or stand-alone application, running on .Net or J2EE, hosted on-premise or in the cloud, Visual Studio Application Insights can help you answer these questions and more. Aimed at the development team, Application Insights can help you analyze usage patterns, detect, triage and diagnose performance issues, monitor and detect outages, etc. And, its available for a variety of languages (including C#/VB.Net, Javascript, Java, Objective-C) and platforms (such as ASP.Net, Angular, Xamarin, iOS). It can even be used to collect telemetry data from your existing applications.
