London School of Economics and Political Science has deployed the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform to improve performance and end user experience across its online university services, AppDynamics said on Tuesday.
The application intelligence company noted that there is growing demand for online student resources at LSE. The university caters to approximately 9,600 full-time students and more than 125,000 alumni. It has overseas students coming from over 140 countries.
LSE selected AppDynamics because it needed to quickly improve the performance of its online services in order to attract students and remain competitive in the higher education market.
AppDynamics is helping LSE to streamline its management of online services and deliver better quality of teaching to students overall.
“We want to move towards a DevOps model where we can deploy rapidly and more cost effectively, and respond quicker to end user demands,” said Ron Riley, enterprise technology manager at LSE.
Vice President of AppDynamics Europe Jeremy Duggan, noted that a sharp rise in tuition fees in recent years has heightened student expectations of university services. Hence, it’s essential to ensure flawless performance and service in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
