At launch we announced an exciting new technology called Application Insights. Application Insights is a set of services that provide actionable insight into a production application. This data is then integrated back into the development tools and process.
These services include:
Out-side-in availability monitoring
Understanding application and system internals with Application Performance Monitoring
Data driven decisions with customer usage analytics
To ensure all this data is actionable we surface it in a couple of different ways
User configurable Email Alerts
Easy to customize Dashboards
The product team would like share with you what is being introduced in the next sprint and and help you get started with monitoring your production application.

In just the last month i have been asked three times for a case study or examples of how to test Java based systems using Microsoft Test Manager.
Knowing one of the ALM MVPs, Marcel de Vries, is finishing up a very large Java project i reached out to him to find out how he just accomplished this.
For the folks going to the largest developer conference in Canada, DevTeach; you are in for a real treat as you will be first people on the planet to see Application Insights in anger as the DevTeach organizers have graciously added a session for this exciting new topic.
Many folks have noticed I had practically stopped blogging. I have been working on one of the products Brian announced at the launch: Application Insights and as this service wasn’t in preview until today have not been able to blog about it.
