In the newly released report, “The Forrester Wave™: Application Performance Management Solutions, Q3 2016” by Milan Hanson and Eveline Oehrlich, Forrester evaluated and analyzed 14 top Application Performance Management solutions. The firms were evaluated against twenty-eight criteria, which were grouped according to current offering, strategy, and market presence.

The report specifically recognizes, “AppDynamics’ App iQ Platform supports its suite of APM applications, providing insight into business transactions with discovery, tagging, tracing, and learning transactions that are important to the user.”

To emphasize how proud we are of our ranking, AppDynamics CTO Bhaskar Sunkara said “Every business is becoming a digital business and they are transforming the way they deliver valuable experiences for their customers.” Bhaskar continues “With AppDynamics’ App iQ Platform, enterprises have real-time insights into application performance, allowing them to accelerate their digital transformation and make key decisions that enhance customer experiences faster.”

Furthermore, within the current offering category, Forrester AppDynamics received a 5 out of 5 score in the following feature sets:

  •       Dynamic transaction topology
  •       Dynamic health overlay
  •       General infrastructure monitoring
  •       Off-premises infrastructure monitoring
  •       Microservices/containers monitoring (new)
  •       Analytics

Though this report is new, I think it further confirms what I’ve seen in my relatively short tenure at AppDynamics. After speaking with customers and learning about their use cases, we’re driven to continue innovating and helping our customers solve their application problems. NASDAQ Director of Operations Analytics, Eric Poon states, “It worked as it was advertised and it worked very easily. It was simple to deploy. It took minutes, literally. On our first proof-of-concept, we saw results within an hour.”
