Introducing Mobile App Monitoring

CATEGORIES: Web Performance, Mobile Quality

“Mobile-first” is the new mantra for companies today. Nearly every major brand publishes mobile apps and sites, racing to meet the expectations of a workforce “bringing their own devices” and consumers connecting anywhere, anytime. A staggering 102 billion mobile apps were downloaded last year according to Gartner.

But what’s happening after those apps land in the hands of customers? How often do apps fail, or perform poorly? Unfortunately, most companies simply do not know. Gartner estimates that only 5% of IT Operations teams monitor the performance of mobile applications.
