Enterprise synthetic monitoring is their bread and butter. If you have ever used ClientVantage Active, or Private Enterprise, or Enterprise Synthetic Monitoring - here are the heroes that develop and maintain the ESM solution.
Hello team! How long have you been at Dynatrace?
Our average is
22 years; the longest is 33 years; the shortest is 14 years.
What products or components do you develop and
We develop, maintain, support, and test DC RUM’s Enterprise
Synthetic Monitoring (ESM), including the Recorder. We have also had
responsibility with some of our legacy products that are no longer
supported. On rare occasion, we may still get involved on some of these
including Server Monitoring and VantageView, especially in the Forum and while
dealing with ESM customers.
your work only about product development?
No. We’re involved in all aspects of ESM,
including development, maintenance, QA, automation, release engineering, and
support along with some documentation.
has the ESM evolved over recent years?
has moved from using VantageView and the CAS to only using the CAS for alerting
and reporting. ESM health alerts are still available, but the integration
with the CAS continues to improve, including ESM health. ESM now uses the
security in the DC RUM Console instead of CSS. In release 12.5,
the Recorder’s OCR text capture and IR (image recognition) are significantly
improved. Additionally, ESM provides for executing multiple non-GUI
PowerShell scripts simultaneously; GUI PowerShell scripts can be executed as 3rd
party scripts. QALoad and QALoad scripts are no longer supported.
Additional exciting changes are underway for the future releases.

product. This is a great group of people; we are like family and really
enjoy our work and time together.
