Before I sign off for a few days of vacation Will Cappelli and I did manage to get an interesting research note published, which we have been working on for the last month or longer. This note outlines several vendors or “innovators” which were not in the APM Magic Quadrant this year for not meeting specific criteria elements when the survey was sent. Some of these vendors would be included if we were gathering the research now, and had the same criteria. For the APM MQ for 2012, the criteria and the market have shifted, so it’s hard to say which vendors would be included for next year.
This note covers several vendors and explains the approach, strengths, and cautions for each vendor. It is a short but interesting read, and some of the approaches these vendors are taking are unique, and don’t fit into the Gartner APM model. Some of these approaches may be a great fit for you particular needs. This is why you are always best off speaking to a Gartner analyst who can take the knowledge and apply it to your particular situation and requirements.
The following vendors are covered in this research : Splunk, Netuitive, New Relic, BlueStripe, AppDynamics, ITRS Group, and ExtraHop Networks.
