As App Downloads Exceed 100 Billion Annually, Keynote Introduces Mobile App Monitoring to Improve App Performance in Real-Time
BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS - Keynote,
leader in mobile and web cloud testing & monitoring, today
announced Keynote Mobile App Monitoring, the first 100% cloud solution
to monitor the performance of mobile apps without the need to add or
modify any software.
For the full story on this compelling new solution:
In an increasingly mobile-first world, Gartner
reported that Mobile app stores will see annual downloads reach 268
billion in 2017, with total revenue of $77 billion, growing at 27%
annually from 2012 and 2017. In-app purchases will account for almost
half of the totalrevenue in 2017. Yet Gartner (News - Alert) also estimates only 5% of
IT Operations teams currently monitor the performance of mobile apps.
Keynote Mobile App Monitoring addresses this critical blind spot, which
currently leaves mobile technology teams with no visibility into
performance after their apps have been downloaded. Keynote Mobile App
Monitoring alerts teams to issues related to availability and
responsiveness, and offers insight into root causes, isolating
bottlenecks to specific services and APIs, including third parties. In
conjunction with its existing web and mobile web monitoring solutions,
Keynote now provides a unified view across all digital delivery channels
in one management dashboard.
"For our customers, Mobile App Monitoring brings new visibility of
post-release app performance, where optimizing every digital interaction
with consumers is critical," said Jennifer Tejada, CEO of Keynote. "This
means development teams, marketing staff and digital asset managers in
industries such as retail and ecommerce, banking, travel, media and
telecommunications can address app performance issues before they impact
the customer experience and ultimately financial results."
Keynote Mobile App Monitoring is the only on-demand solution that does
not require any modification of the app being monitored. It is also the
only solution to provide active and continuous visibility into mobile
app performance, using real devices and delivered as an easy-to-set-up
cloud solution. Other solutions require IT Ops teams to either compile
software into the app or "wrap" it in some software. Keynote Mobile App
Monitoring frees IT Ops teams from having to manipulate code before
monitoring, allowing for rapid deployment.
Using live wireless carrier connections around the globe, Keynote Mobile
App Monitoring provides the most accurate insight into end-user
experience for mobile apps. Keynote Mobile App Monitoring integrates
across all of Keynote's monitoring services to deliver a complete view
into end-user experiences from a single cloud console, across key touch
points including apps and Web, smartphones, tablets and desktops, and
both inside and outside firewalls.
"Keynote Mobile App Monitoring fills a critical gap for organizations
seeking to maximize the performance and value of their
digitally-connected customers. We've developed a fast, easy way to
monitor the performance of the billions of apps out there, measuring
exactly what the end-user experiences," continued Jennifer Tejada. "It's
a big step in improving mobile application quality and reliability, and
in turn helping teams increase the effectiveness of their mobile
