SmartBear Acquires OpenTelemetry Pioneer Aspecto to Give Developers Greater Application Visibility
Combining Aspecto's OTel-based distributed tracing with BugSnag application error monitoring enables development teams to rapidly identify and fix end user issues
"Developers are taking on more responsibilities for how their apps run and perform in production while OTel is becoming the telemetry standard for gathering product data about those apps," said Anthony Bryce, VP of Product Management at SmartBear. "Today, BugSnag provides developers visibility into their end users' experiences of their app, whether it's unforeseen errors, crashes, or performance issues. With the addition of Aspecto, we are extending these capabilities to provide a broader, developer-focused, OTel-compliant observability platform. This means developers can both identify production issues and rapidly troubleshoot to resolve those issues."
With this acquisition, SmartBear will provide development teams with extended end-to-end visibility across the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Developers can use Aspecto's OpenTelemetry-
"We see many organizations looking to drive their own observability projects to avoid costly and proprietary commercial solutions," said Eran Grabiner, CEO of Aspecto. "Aspecto helps them scale OTel infrastructure in a secure, cost-effective manner. Integrating the rich developer-focused production issue identification solutions from SmartBear with Aspecto's leading diagnostic capabilities offers a combination that will help development teams deliver even greater quality software."
SmartBear is making it easier for its customers to take advantage of Aspecto's solutions by integrating it with BugSnag. It enables application development teams to use BugSnag to drill down, in context, any application error, crash, or performance issue into the relevant trace. The results will help developers visualize, diagnose, and resolve application issues more efficiently.
