Learn why AppDynamics was named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites for the sixth year in a row.

Today, Cisco (AppDynamics) was named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites for the sixth year in a row. We were also positioned highest among 15 vendors for ability to execute – something we’re incredibly proud of.

Since joining AppDynamics over a year ago, one of the things I love most about the team is how closely we listen to customers.  Whether it is about cloud migrations, digital transformation, or improving the speed of doing business, our customers’ feedback inspires us to keep innovating faster every day.

We believe Gartner’s recognition is a reflection of the innovations we’ve made over the last year that are dedicated to helping customers achieve more visibility, confidence, and agility.

Take, for example, our introduction of the next generation of Business iQ, Business Journeys, which links multiple, distributed business events into a single view that shows the way customers actually interact with a business. Businesses can now shape their digital experiences to match the real-time needs and expectations of their customers.

And as more connected devices continue to spread in both the consumer and enterprise worlds, we also launched IoT Monitoring to give businesses the ability to glean insights into end-user behavior across any number of devices.

Then there’s the massive task of drawing real-time insights from the high volume of data we collect. We needed help here, and we got it with Perspica Technologies. We doubled down on our machine learning capabilities with the onboarding of Perspica to help advance the domain-expertise needed to quickly turn data into business-aware insights.   

This was just a glimpse of our milestones in over the last year. We believe being named as a leader for APM Suites in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for the sixth consecutive year is a big honor, but we’re nowhere near slowing down. So stay tuned – you’ll want to see what we have in store.
