With Monitoring of Native Mobile Apps, New Relic Delivers Another Industry First

New Relic for Mobile Apps Fills Critical Need by Putting an End to Era of Zero Visibility

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/14/13 -- New Relic Inc., the SaaS-based application management provider, is enabling the business success of the mobile app industry with New Relic for Mobile Apps, a first-of-its kind service now available for any business striving to achieve rave customer reviews and 5-star ratings in app stores. The new addition to the New Relic world-class web app, real user and server monitoring service extends its in-depth visibility capability to the performance of Android and Apple iOS mobile applications. Ideal for enterprise, mobile commerce or consumer applications, New Relic for Mobile Apps will allow app developers to see exactly what their mobile users are experiencing to ensure high customer satisfaction. In a separate press release, New Relic is also announcing new strategic partnerships with leading mobile service and platform providers.

The mobile app market is projected to top 89 billion downloads by 2015 and it is expected that half of all payments will be transacted via mobile by 2020 (1). Although millions of dollars are being poured into mobile applications, app developers and line of business managers had no actionable insight into the performance of the apps that deliver key services. With multiple points of possible failure -- whether deep within the application code, in the mobile device or in calls to third party APIs, such as Facebook, PayPal and Twitter -- mobile businesses could only guess at the quality of the user experience and the precise location of performance bottlenecks.

New Relic for Mobile Apps is intuitive, easy to deploy, and offered as both a free service and an affordable monthly subscription. New Relic for Mobile Apps is integrated with the flagship New Relic web app service, which is used by hundreds of thousands of developers worldwide. The new mobile app service shares the same single screen view, making New Relic's combined mobile app and web app service the only solution to monitor software, no matter where it's running in an app server, browser, or mobile device.

New Relic for Mobile Apps is available today for both Apple iOS and Android applications.

For a limited time, it is offered at special discounted pricing. To get it:

  • Existing customers can sign up through the New Relic SaaS app
  • New customers can sign up for a new account here
  • Customers who deploy their mobile apps through a New Relic partner cloud provider will find it available in their app marketplace With the New Relic for Mobile Apps offering, customers get:
  • Real-time performance monitoring of native mobile apps
  • Support for both iOS and Android mobile apps
  • End-to-end visibility, from the individual mobile device to backend web services
  • Insight and actionable data from real app users and sessions to see exactly what the users are experiencing
  • The ability to monitor HTTP app errors and performance problems, which are as bad (or worse) than crashes
  • Views of performance data by geography, carrier, device type and app versions to prioritize, isolate and solve the most pressing problems
  • Constant monitoring of the health of external services that apps depend upon for success

"ReadyTalk is an audio and web video conferencing provider. We've really come to embrace WebRTC as the platform for our future of technology," explained Dan Cunningham, CTO of ReadyTalk, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at WebRTC Summit at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction.
