OPCFSO - Operationalizing Cisco Full-Stack Observability with AppDynamics, ThousandEyes, and Intersight

When completely integrated, AppDynamics, ThousandEyes, and Intersight give real-time insights correlated across domains and linked with business context across the entire stack of apps, infrastructure (network and cloud, computing, storage), and security.

Cisco Full-Stack Observability gives you a unified view of resource allocation, infrastructure, and security, allowing you to fine-tune an application ecosystem to deliver the best possible application experience while keeping key performance indicators (KPI) in these areas.

This course covers the key aspects of AppDynamics, Intersight Workload Optimizer and ThousandEyes and how they are integrated to provide FSO. You will learn the architecture and features of the individual products and then incorporate them using hands-on labs to solve common customer use cases.
