Gartner's second annual Cool Vendors in APM report, authored by Jonah Kowall and Will Cappelli, covers companies that support the expanding landscape of APM, which is "not confined to views from the data center network alone, but also includes the Internet and mobile carrier networks."

In general, Gartner's 2013 Cool Vendors research identifies the innovative companies, products and services that will shape business and consumer strategies in the future. According to Gartner, by definition, Cool Vendors are small vendors that offer innovative products or services.

The report, Cool Vendors in Application Performance Monitoring 2013, highlights "emerging APM offerings bought by multiple buyers, including IT operations, application support, development and line-of-business application owners. These offerings encompass an understanding of network performance, the Internet's health and critical mobile application performance."

The following are companies highlighted in Cool Vendors in Application Performance Monitoring 2013:


Gartner considers AppNeta a unique APM vendor because the company offers performance monitoring of both applications and networks delivered via SaaS.


Crittercism provides crash monitoring, analysis and application launch tracking of native mobile applications, helping the mobile operations team understand and troubleshoot usage and performance of mobile applications.

ExtraHop Networks

ExtraHop takes the same data source used by NPM vendors to solve APM-specific use cases, providing correlated, cross-tier visibility for production operations that spans the network, Web, application, hosted virtual desktop monitoring, middleware, infrastructure, database and storage tiers.


Kataskopeo combines classical packet-capture-based end-user experience monitoring with database activity monitoring and real-time analytics to provide an end-to-end picture of the business process impact of database-centric applications.


Gartner says Renesys "has taken a unique approach to Internet performance measurement, building a large map of the Internet's health by combining synthetic measurements and route analytics from more than 100 locations, giving them an understanding of latency and paths across the Internet."
