Extend user experience and behavior data
There are many ways your business can interact with your customers in the digital world. Monitoring user experience and behavior in your web and mobile applications is a great way to get started with digital experience monitoring; Dynatrace easily detects and automatically monitors all application touchpoints using OneAgent. However, your business likely has many other digital touchpoints outside of your applications where your customers interact with your brand that are also key to the success of your business. With Dynatrace OpenKit, you get a set of open source libraries that enable you to instrument all other digital touchpoints in your environment, whether or not they’re traditional rich client applications, smart IoT applications, or even Alexa skills.
Dynatrace OpenKit is a set of open source libraries that provides an easy, lightweight means of instrumenting the source code of your custom applications so that you can monitor their performance with Dynatrace. Dynatrace OpenKit is best suited for client/server applications that communicate via HTTP—for example, rich client applications, embedded devices, and terminals.
The main advantages of OpenKit are:
Ease of use
No OneAgent library dependencies
Ease of portability to other languages and platforms
