Have you ever been on a software project where the requirements that were published did not quite meet the needs of the end users? Admit it - you probably have. And if you have, did you not find out about this problem until a few releases in? Probably true as well; it's a common problem! That's where the Visual Studio Online service called Application Insights comes in. Application Insights is an analytics platform that allows you to not only monitor the health and performance of your application, but also view how users are using the application. On this episode of Breakpoint, Jonathan and Paul go over what Application Insights is, how you can get it and incorporate it into your applications, and what kind of value the service platform can bring to your users and own software development team.
There was a technical problem at the time of the recording. The issue was subsequently corrected. Check out the Breakpoint Short, Getting Valuable Insights from Your App with Application Insights, for the working demo.
