AppDynamics, a part of Cisco, on Monday introduced SAP Peak, monitoring tools for the SAP environment. This new offer builds on the already existing SAP monitoring from AppDynamics.

The company calls SAP Peak it’s next generation SAP performance management solution. It allows businesses to monitor their SAP environment in real-time. That includes logs, metadata, background jobs, S/4HANA databases and the application server.

“We were missing an important component [in SAP Monitoring from AppDynamics]: contextualizing how SAP performance impacts the business scenarios that facilitate the ways organizations operate,” Brian Paul, corporate development and strategy executive Cisco/AppDynamics, wrote in blog. “Without this visibility, organizations are blind to bottlenecks that may be impacting their IT landscape, and by extension, the crucial business processes their organization relies on to maintain user experience and healthy revenue streams.”

The Breakdown

Here’s a closer look at the new functionality.

  • Business iQ for Business Scenario Transaction Analytics brings visibility and understanding to how bottlenecks are impacting critical business processes. It does this by allowing users to monitor key SAP business scenarios. For example, starting with order to cash, and then correlating that information back to business performance.

  • ABAP Code-Level Visibility provides base-level APM functionality for SAP monitoring. This includes transaction/code level visibility, dynamic baselining, easier root-cause analysis of issues, reduced MTTR and application flow maps of the SAP ABAP stack.

  • Deep SAP Performance Infights supplies dashboards that display performance metrics, logs and events for the overall SAP landscape. That includes processes outside of the user business transactions. These views can help to reduce cost of managing data, save time in performance and regression testing. It also provides visibility into the availability of business-related transactions.

  • Server and Network Visibility facilitates full-stack visibility across SAP landscapes to identify and isolate infrastructure performance issues. This further reduces MTTR and breaks down operational silos.


AppDynamics’ Vipul Shah

“With the cost of an application failure averaging more than $500,000 an hour, it is critical that businesses today have a comprehensive system in place to monitor ad measure their increasingly complex IT environments,” said Vipul Shah, chief product officer, AppDynamics.

Acquired in 2017, AppDynamics delivers visibility across network, data center, security and applications. More recently, Cisco closed on its ThousandEyes acquisition. The ThousandEyes platform will be integrated across Cisco’s enterprise cloud and AppDynamics portfolio. This integration will provide real-time visibility across enterprise and cloud networks.
