Combining sports and technology (Internet, GPS smartphones), runtastic is making sports even more fun. With over 12 million downloads, runtastic’s success with its iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry applications created many operational and performance challenges. We will share three of our biggest headaches and how adopting a new approach to managing application performance kept us going – and helped us go even further:

• Why crash reports couldn’t help us make our users happy?
• How Facebook brought down our applications?
• What millions of blind spots in our applications meant to our operations?

This session is sponsored by Compuware
