Using Visual Studio Online “Application Insights” to get your own application telemetry data
Application Insights collects, processes and presents a wide variety of telemetry including performance, usage, availability, exception, crash, environment, log and developer-supplied data from all components of a modern application – including clients (devices and browser), servers, databases and services. With this "360 degree view" of your application, Application Insights can quickly detect availability and performance problems, alert you and pinpoint their root cause. It connects you to rich diagnostic experiences in Visual Studio for diagnosis and repair. It also supports continuous, data-driven improvement of an application. For example it highlights which features are most and least used, where users get "stuck" in an application, where and why exceptions are occurring, which client platforms are being used with which OS versions, and where performance optimizations will make the biggest impact on compute costs. In this session I will show you how you can enable Application insights for your applications and how you can use the information to better support your team with insights in what needs to be built in the next sprint for your application.
