Dynatrace is a software intelligence company providing application performance management (APM), artificial intelligence for operations (AIOps), cloud infrastructure monitoring, and digital experience management (DEM), with products for the information technology departments and digital business owners of medium and large businesses. The company's services include performance management software for programs running on-premises and in the cloud. This software manages the availability and performance of software applications and the impact on user experience in the form of deep transaction tracing, synthetic monitoring, real user monitoring, and network monitoring. The company separated from Compuware in December 2014 after being sold into private equity firm Thoma Bravo[2] establishing it as a standalone company.


The earliest forms of Dynatrace began February 2, 2005 with the founding of dynaTrace Software GmbH[3] in Linz, Austria, and on May 9, 2005 with the Compuware acquisition of Adlex, Inc.[4] On January 2, 2007 it acquired Proxima Technology's Centauri Business Service Manager. After acquiring Gomez, Inc. on November 9, 2009[5] and dynaTrace Software July 1, 2011[6] the product set held the Compuware APM name until Private Equity firm Thoma Bravo took the company private in 2014. In time with separating from Compuware, the Compuware APM group renamed to Dynatrace.[7][8] Dynatrace established the Digital Performance Management category in late 2014.[9]
