Qorvo cuts production line interruptions by over 60% with AppDynamics' Application Intelligence Platform

AppDynamics Inc of San Francisco, CA, USA says that Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC and Hillsboro, OR, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications) has chosen its Application Intelligence Platform to optimize performance of and address growth demands on its critical semiconductor design and production systems.

Qorvo's engineering and semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities in North America, Europe and Asia depend on business-critical .NET applications that tie engineering systems to the manufacturing environment that drives wafer fabrication on Qorvo's shop floors. "Performance hindrances to any one of our applications can cause a bottleneck in the fabrication plant or on the shop floor, resulting in late delivery, lots of overtime, and lost revenue," says Aparajit Saigal, manufacturing IT team lead at Qorvo. "As the company continued to grow, our applications simply couldn't scale."

After writing its own application monitoring code and performing manual analysis in an ongoing attempt to address application and database performance issues, Qorvo began looking at application performance monitoring solutions. The semiconductor manufacturer chose AppDynamics after comparing the capabilities of the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform and other application performance management (APM) competitors.

"The fact that AppDynamics offers solutions for monitoring distributed applications and provides an integrated view across applications, databases, and platforms was a huge advantage over competitive offerings," comments Saigal. "Our legacy application spans databases, storage, Active Directory, and a vast assortment of endpoints," he adds. "Other APM vendors couldn't figure out how to implement their solution or scale it in our complex environment."

Saigal estimates that AppDynamics' application performance management has helped his team to reduce interruptions to production by at least 60-70%. "The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform gives us true end-to-end visibility across application transactions," says Saigal. "We can determine the amount of time taken for each and every request, and drill down into each function and locate the exact line of code causing issues."

"Qorvo is in an exciting and critical technology sector, creating and manufacturing the semiconductors that make advanced communications possible," says AppDynamics' chief technology officer Bhaskar Sunkara. "We're pleased that they have chosen AppDynamics to give them the visibility, control, and insight into their application performance that they need to ensure efficient operations with little downtime. Our solution will scale effortlessly with them as their business continues to rapidly expand."
