Their focus is on the successful transformation of complex business and technical requirements into robust and valuable software applications. Their portfolio covers the entire life cycle of application systems development. They thrive on innovation and customer-oriented solutions which lead to successful projects and products.

Novatec created the OpenAPM initiative. OpenAPM shows you which open source application performance management (APM) tools are suitable for your stack. It informs users about the possibilities of integrating different tools and shows them how to create tailored APM solutions based on open source software.

They chose InfluxDB because of its open source nature and it can be integrated with many different open source tools. As such, it plays a central role for many open source APM solutions.
