SAN FRANCISCO – Dec. 27, 2016 – AppDynamics, the leading application intelligence company, today announced it has been recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites for the fifth year in a row. As well as being named a leader, the company was positioned furthest to the right on the “Completeness of Vision” axis for the third consecutive year. Assessment criteria for vision include market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy.

“Software complexity is rising due to the proliferation of new distributed applications across multi-cloud environments, propelling APM to the forefront of how enterprises can ensure they deliver exceptional experiences to their customers,” said Bhaskar Sunkara, co-founder and CTO, AppDynamics. “And with AppDynamics, enterprises have both real-time business monitoring and application monitoring to drive their seamless performance throughout every phase of their customer engagement.”

Gartner has updated its definition of application performance monitoring (APM) suites since last year’s Magic Quadrant report. Gartner now defines APM suites as one or more software and/or hardware components that facilitate monitoring to meet three main functional dimensions:

  • Digital experience monitoring (DEM);
  • Application discovery, tracing and diagnostics (ADTD); and
  • Application analytics (AA). 

In addition, Gartner recognized AppDynamics in its 2016 Critical Capabilities for Application Performance Monitoring Suites, a companion document to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for APM. The research report provides deeper insights into 12 vendor products and offers an “evaluation across five usage scenarios and is designed to assist IT organization planners and buyers as they look to support an increasingly broad array of APM requirements.” Download your complimentary copy of the full Gartner Magic Quadrant report.
