SD Times news digest: Catchpoint updates, Codefresh announces new GitOps features, Sopheon releases latest version of Accolade

Catchpoint announced major platform enhancements including Application Performance Management deep linking and expanded integrations that provide enterprises complete user experience visibility. 

“Today, many Enterprises struggle to deliver their business outcomes with traditional monitoring technology as the majority of legacy tools are incapable of providing holistic business-level observability of a hybrid IT world,” says Mehdi Daoudi, CEO of Catchpoint. “These new capabilities are another important milestone towards empowering IT teams so they can manage the visibility challenges associated with everything hybrid.”

Customers can now perform mesh monitoring to diagnose or fault isolate network-related issues between multiple locations, including ones within an enterprise premise.
