What Application Performance Management (APM) certifications do exist?

Hi pprofessionals,

I'm still a newbie to monitoring tools like APM and I have a question: 

Are there any Application Performance Management (APM) certifications for tools like CA APM, AppDynamics, Dynatrace, or any other APM-related certification?  

Thank you!

There are AppDynamics certifications that are quite popular nowadays:


1. AppDynamics Certified Associate Performance Analyst


2. AppDynamics Certified Implementation Professional



Also, for Dynatrace:


Dynatrace Associate Exam – Application Monitoring Certification



Thanks,

Each vendor will typically provide a certification for their tool.  I expect this for every vendor.  I'm not aware of a tool agnostic APM certification .... which would be an interesting cert I would love to use when evaluating candidates.

@reviewer1581165 In general all tool vendors have certification programs. You will be able to find them on their websites.

I definitely recommend Dynatrace because I think it is a fantastic digital performance monitoring tool. It is obvious why it is considered to be the APM market leader. It has helped my organization optimize customer experiences, modernize operations, and accelerate innovation across cloud and on-premises environments. It has also alleviated many of our digital-performance challenges and, in turn, has helped us grow our business. From my experience, I have found that Dynatrace works right out of the box. The solution has given us deep insights into our hosts, Docker containers, and the services that they provide. I also found that Dynatrace was easy and straightforward to deploy and its auto-detection capabilities that reduce installation effort to near zero really made a difference. Another reason why I like Dynatrace is because it works proactively, not just reactively. It has allowed us to identify and get in front of performance issues more quickly and efficiently. With Dynatrace, we can be more agile and proactive, and address issues before they ever reach our customers, which is really important for our organization. Not only does Dynatrace pinpoint the root causes of problems, but it does it fast. As you may already know, when there is an issue, it can take a long time to fix - sometimes even days. But with Dynatrace, we are able to identify issues immediately, which saves us a lot of time and resources. It has effectively eliminated the time we would typically waste going through logs so that we could remediate issues. The AI that comes with the device is also highly intelligent and useful in narrowing down potential root causes of issues. The solution contains tools and features that are simple to use and set up in order to acquire the greatest performance and query analytics or tracking from this platform. Furthermore, with Dynatrace you have complete visibility. Using what Dynatrace refers to as ‘SmartScape,’ we are able to get a full picture of our production environment and an excellent overview of system components. The solution makes it easy for us to evaluate the health of our systems so we know where we need to optimize. Another huge advantage about Dynatrace is that it is an all-in-one monitoring tool. Prior to using Dynatrace, we had to use separate tools for web monitoring, application performance management, and server monitoring. Now we don’t have to, because Dynatrace does all of that. As an all-in-one solution, Dynatrace also provides better full-stack monitoring and proactive alarms. And because it does such a great job of providing a thorough overview of issues, fewer DevOps engineers are needed to fix the issues, since it does the job of finding the root cause of the issues for you. The whole solution is very easy to use and it has a simple user interface. It's not always so easy to find a company with outstanding customer service and technical support, but Dynatrace has been fantastic. Not only do they have quick turnaround times, but they are really responsive and knowledgeable. All in all, Dynatrace is a highly comprehensive and valuable tool, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

Dynatrace is the leader in the APM market with reason, it is well worth giving it a decent evaluation for full end-to-end monitoring of infrastructure and code.

How about pricing strategy?  Why do top banks in MENA still prefer Dynatrace over New Relic or AppDynamics?🤔
