Customer and Partner Success in France
"By adopting the New Relic platform, we have greatly improved the performance of our services and significantly reduced the number of incidents. The simplicity of New Relic allowed us to create a culture of monitoring within the teams." - Aurélien Capdecomme, CTO at 20 Minutes, a leading French independent news media company.
"Our continued growth requires us to improve and accelerate our technical stack to a service-oriented architecture. New Relic has played an important role as it has enabled us to increase observability into all of our services to better serve our customers.” - Julien Dehee, Head of Infrastructure at Blablacar, a leading long distance carpooling service.
“When we migrated our infrastructure, it experienced a major performance degradation. Dev and Ops were blaming each other. With New Relic, it was easy to identify the source of the problem, which turned out to be a mixed code and proxy issue. New Relic is one of the most important tools we have because we can quickly identify bugs and resolve them promptly." - Guillaume Postaire, Deputy Chief Technology Officer, Infrastructure and Architecture at France Télévisions, the French public national television broadcaster.
"We are proud to partner with New Relic, which makes our collaboration of more than 3 years on the French market a reality. The priority of delivering the best user experience is no longer negotiable and should be addressed at all levels: the customer journey, IT, and organisation. To support this approach, we rely on the solutions offered by New Relic to optimize our work of development, deployment, and operations of digital experience platforms and omnichannel commerce." - Yannick Olympio, Manager, Web & Mobile Solutions at SQLI, a leading international digital experience agency.
