With Monitoring of Native Mobile Apps, New Relic Delivers Another Industry First

New Relic for Mobile Apps Fills Critical Need by Putting an End to Era of Zero Visibility

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/14/13 -- New Relic Inc., the SaaS-based application management provider, is enabling the business success of the mobile app industry with New Relic for Mobile Apps, a first-of-its kind service now available for any business striving to achieve rave customer reviews and 5-star ratings in app stores. The new addition to the New Relic world-class web app, real user and server monitoring service extends its in-depth visibility capability to the performance of Android and Apple iOS mobile applications. Ideal for enterprise, mobile commerce or consumer applications, New Relic for Mobile Apps will allow app developers to see exactly what their mobile users are experiencing to ensure high customer satisfaction. In a separate press release, New Relic is also announcing new strategic partnerships with leading mobile service and platform providers.

The mobile app market is projected to top 89 billion downloads by 2015 and it is expected that half of all payments will be transacted via mobile by 2020 (1). Although millions of dollars are being poured into mobile applications, app developers and line of business managers had no actionable insight into the performance of the apps that deliver key services. With multiple points of possible failure -- whether deep within the application code, in the mobile device or in calls to third party APIs, such as Facebook, PayPal and Twitter -- mobile businesses could only guess at the quality of the user experience and the precise location of performance bottlenecks.

New Relic for Mobile Apps is intuitive, easy to deploy, and offered as both a free service and an affordable monthly subscription. New Relic for Mobile Apps is integrated with the flagship New Relic web app service, which is used by hundreds of thousands of developers worldwide. The new mobile app service shares the same single screen view, making New Relic's combined mobile app and web app service the only solution to monitor software, no matter where it's running in an app server, browser, or mobile device.

Availability
New Relic for Mobile Apps is available today for both Apple iOS and Android applications.

For a limited time, it is offered at special discounted pricing. To get it:

  • Existing customers can sign up through the New Relic SaaS app
  • New customers can sign up for a new account here
  • Customers who deploy their mobile apps through a New Relic partner cloud provider will find it available in their app marketplace With the New Relic for Mobile Apps offering, customers get:
  • Real-time performance monitoring of native mobile apps
  • Support for both iOS and Android mobile apps
  • End-to-end visibility, from the individual mobile device to backend web services
  • Insight and actionable data from real app users and sessions to see exactly what the users are experiencing
  • The ability to monitor HTTP app errors and performance problems, which are as bad (or worse) than crashes
  • Views of performance data by geography, carrier, device type and app versions to prioritize, isolate and solve the most pressing problems
  • Constant monitoring of the health of external services that apps depend upon for success

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service).

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
