Will Cappelli, Gartner Research VP, and Jonah Kowall, Gartner Research Director, have released a report entitled APM Innovators: Driving APM Technology and Delivery Evolution. The report covers innovators that are driving the APM market.

The report states that technologies, use cases and delivery modes for APM are evolving rapidly along four trajectories:

* New data collection methods to reflect the new ways end users are accessing applications.

* Highly scalable multitenant platforms for APM functionality, lightweight technologies for deep-dive components and real end-user experience monitoring, to help manage the cloud.

* Industry-specific APM, particularly in healthcare, low-latency trading and smart-grid monitoring.

* Rich analytics functionality to address the explosion of performance data volume and complexity.

The following APM innovators named in the report contribute to these four trajectories.
