Magic Quadrant for Application Performance MonitoringFebruary 8, 2012 No Comments
In 2011, about $2 billion will be spent worldwide on application performance monitoring licenses and first-year maintenance contracts. This is a 15% increase over the $1.7 billion spent on APM in 2010, which grew by approximately 10%, compared with global spending in 2009.
The Gartner’s comprehensive 2011 “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM)” report evaluates 29 vendors on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
This Magic Quadrant assesses the APM market. First, they define the market and explain why it’s important to treat the five functional dimensions that together constitute its technology foundation in an integrated manner and to distinguish the APM market from others that are closely related to it. Next, we will set out the qualifying criteria for inclusion in this research and then survey some general characteristics of each of the resulting quadrants. This research will then conclude with a brief study of each participating vendor’s APM strengths and weaknesses.DATA and ANALYTICS , Featured White Papers
