Test user journeys to
deliver a great customer experience

Front-end synthetic monitoring is a vital complementary capability to APM and infrastructure observability that provides an unparalleled perspective on your application's critical flows through the eyes of the user. Create test scripts with a point-and-click script recorder and simulate the user experience across multi-step journeys, such as the checkout flow for an ecommerce store or the transaction flow of an internal trading application. Capture a detailed breakdown of status information and errors along the journey and use waterfall views to identify and fix problematic areas to create exceptional digital experiences.

Elevate the SRE experience

Benefit from end-to-end workflows tailored specifically for SREs:dedicated error detail pages, performance trend analysis, and custom charts that provide crucial information at a glance. Effortlessly triage and diagnose issues by comparing the last successful test run against the failed one. Gain essential visibility into third-party dependencies to optimize performance. Leverage proactive alerts and seamless integration with incident management tools to deliver exceptional user experiences.

Streamline the testing process from dev to production with GitOps

Experience an industry-first in synthetic monitoring and manage your monitors as code. Write and verify tests in pre-production, then effortlessly push the test scripts with your code for continued testing in production. With seamless built-in GitOps management, you can eliminate the lag between code releases and test updates, reuse test scripts to reduce effort, and simplify the management of monitors and scripts.
