Dynatrace Boot Camp

Learn how to find the root cause faster with automatic performance monitoring and observability in this Dynatrace training course.

Dynatrace is a premier monitoring solution for both simple and complex technology and computing environments. There are many use cases for Dynatrace; you can use it to monitor real users of your web applications, analyze log data from your infrastructure, or visualize your environment's topology. 

Dynatrace also utilizes an artificial intelligence (AI) engine to process all the data it collects and helps it identify a root cause of problems detected in your environment. This can significantly reduce your mean time to repair (MTTR) and help improve your service-level objectives (SLO) and service-level agreements (SLA). 

So, if you're monitoring data, Dynatrace can help you find the needle in the haystack. This training course will help you get started. 

This two-day boot camp is designed to help you equip yourself with the skills and knowledge you need to effectively use Dynatrace in your organization or improve on an existing implementation. You’ll get a quick overview of Dynatrace and its core features. Then, you'll quickly jump into hands-on lab exercises to get a deeper understanding of the overall Dynatrace platform. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how you and your organization can utilize Dynatrace to monitor and observe your on-premises and cloud environments.
