Applications today look different from how they looked only a few short years ago. Instead of generally monolithic architecture, modern applications take on a far more modular approach leveraging component third-party services, new ways to deploy and interactions with an increasing number of third-party systems and tools. All of this complexity makes it hard for developers, operations teams or a combination thereof to really see what is going on.
For that reason, vendors are increasingly looking to offer visibility as a specific product. That is the case for JFrog, which today announced Xray, a tool that aims to deliver transparency across applications. JFrog offers software management and distribution tools. Given that it already helps organizations deploy applications and manage those applications, it is a natural progression to offer visibility across those apps.
