Application on-boarding



We have recently purchased DynaTrace AppMon 6.3
and I'm looking for some ideas on steps, procedures and conventions for application
on-boarding. What practices are followed by companies to ensure smooth on
boarding? Which questions capture the information needed?

I would greatly appreciate it, if there are any
documents that can be shared.

Thank you

Hi Madhu,

I am currently working with a small team of Guardians to create a standardized on-boarding procedure and project document that outlines recommended steps for on-boarding apps in AppMon. I can respond again when I know of an expected release date, or if it may be appropriate to send out individual documents before the project is completed.

Thank You,



Thank you Eric, I would appreciate that tremendously.

Hi Madhu,

Depending on your company rules, the following high level process can be followed:

- Meeting to introduce Dynatrace to the team

- Define the usage/need of the team

- Information gathering and compatibility check

- Identify resources for the deployment and the configuration (Network, Firewall, System engineers, DBA, Testers, Developers...)

- Change management (depending on your company's processes)

- Implementation on testing environment

- Assess results and validate instrumentation, impact and provide answers to the usage/needs

- Implementation on production environment

- Assess results and validate instrumentation, impact and provide answers to the usage/needs

- Identify resources for training

- Train resources including the use of the testing environment

- Organize recurrent meetings to evaluate usage and implement improvements, updates...

Hope this helps,


Thank you Nicolas. We have done some of these things with some teams but
it would be good to include them in our on-boarding process.
