San Francisco - August 25, 2015

Software analytics company New Relic, Inc. (NYSE:NEWR) announced today Ladbrokes Australia, one of Australia’s largest gaming companies, has selected the New Relic Software Analytics Cloud to achieve greater visibility into their business through their software. By deploying New Relic’s integrated suite of solutions throughout their application infrastructure, Ladbrokes Australia is proactively monitoring their application performance and customer experience to quickly address issues and make data-driven business decisions.

In the high stakes, competitive gaming market, Ladbrokes Australia’s digital experience is critical, both on the web and mobile.

To ensure customers do not experience issues and to identify new opportunities, Ladbrokes Australia is utilizing the New Relic Software Analytics Cloud for:

● Infrastructure optimization: Ladbrokes Australia utilizes New Relic APM to quickly identify and resolve any application bottlenecks in their customer facing platforms. New Relic APM also allows Ladbrokes Australia to compare application performance after a deployment to ensure that expected performance improvements are achieved.
● Transaction speed: With New Relic Synthetics, Ladbrokes Australia continually checks that critical business transactions are being completed in a timely fashion and receives alerts so they can quickly identify and address any slowdowns.
● Web Performance: The front-end team monitors the web app with New Relic Browser to understand performance by region, and if necessary, utilize the session traces to improve browser performance and responsiveness.
● Mobile Performance: By monitoring their iOS and Android apps with New Relic Mobile, the Ladbrokes Australia mobile team is able to quickly identify and resolve any application bottlenecks as well as receive detailed breakdowns of any crashes regardless of the cause.
● Drive Business Value: By taking the data from their application performance and customer experience, Ladbrokes Australia is able to understand user behavior and opportunities to improve their infrastructure through visibility from New Relic Insights.
