SAN FRANCISCO — March 15, 2017 — Digital intelligence leader New Relic, Inc. (NYSE: NEWR) announced today France Télévisions, France’s number one audiovisual group, is utilizing the New Relic Digital Intelligence Platform to gain visibility into and help design software infrastructure for their digital platforms. France Télévisions is leveraging multiple products - New Relic APM, New Relic Mobile, New Relic Browser, and New Relic Synthetics - as part of their goal to build and deploy higher quality software, faster. The company has also recently expanded their usage by adding New Relic Insights and New Relic Infrastructure to their development and operations teams.
Forty-four percent of Internet users in France access France Télévisions’ websites at least once a month and the company announced that it will deliver approximately four billion videos over the web this year. The company developed their digital leadership through the “Numérique” department of France Télévisions, a technical group responsible for creating web and mobile applications and applications for game stations.
With the importance of these digital initiatives to their business, the “Numérique” department undertook a comprehensive review of application performance monitoring (APM) solutions. The technical direction choose New Relic in part because of the feedback from their developers and operations following hands-on testing, the quick and easy deployment of New Relic as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) monitoring solution, and capabilities such as service maps that provide IT operations increased visibility into the performance of the software infrastructure within their private cloud environment.
Within months, the “Numérique” department deployed New Relic to most of their websites, delivering immediate benefit in helping their team identify performance issues within their infrastructure. New Relic is also supporting Numérique’s agile practice and helping the organization move towards a continuous deployment model by giving developers and operations data on the performance of new deployments in comparison to prior releases.
“New Relic provides deep insights into our code, allowing our developers to quickly identify a problem and solve it,” said Guillaume Postaire, deputy CTO, France Télévisions Numerique Department. “As we look to further our agile development process, New Relic enables our developers and operations to have the same view of our software and work together as a team.”
“New Relic is thrilled to work with leaders like France Télévisions as they look to further their digital strategies and create innovative new ways for people to consume news and entertainment,” said Bruno Teuber, senior vice president, EMEA enterprise sales at New Relic. “The New Relic Digital Intelligence Platform is designed so developers and IT operations can quickly and easily zero in on performance from multiple perspectives, and collaborate with shared data to build higher quality software, faster.”
