Now IT Pros can see the health of applications monitored by Visual Studio Application Insights. Application Insights can now send app data to Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS), enabling the app developer and their IT Pro counterpart to each monitor the health of critical applications in the tool they are most experienced with. Views of the same application telemetry you see in Application Insights will be available in OMS, facilitating more effective collaboration between developers and IT Pros, and thus reducing the time to detect and resolve both application and platform issues.
Information about your application’s health and usage is surfaced in OMS by the Public Preview of the Application Insights Connector for OMS Log Analytics. Telemetry streams from web tests, page views, server requests, exceptions, and custom events are included.
With this facility, OMS users can correlate any infrastructure issues with the impact on applications running in that environment. IT staff can contribute more fully to monitoring the whole stack from the infrastructure and configuration management provided by other OMS solutions, to the application layer data provided by Application Insights.
