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.
Splunk collects, indexes and harnesses all the fast moving machine data generated by applications, servers and devices -- physical, virtual and in the cloud.
Netuitive provides predictive analytics software for IT. Netuitive replaces human guesswork with automated mathematics and analysis to forecast, identify and resolve IT performance issues before they impact quality of service.
New Relic's SaaS solution combines real user monitoring, application monitoring, and availability monitoring in a single solution, providing visbility from the end user experience, through servers, and down to the line of application code.
BlueStripe's FactFinder provides automated application management and transaction monitoring in a single product, enabling monitoring and management of the complete application system and transaction performance across physical, virtual or cloud.
AppDynamics provides Software-as-Service (SaaS) and on-premise application performance management for modern application architectures in both the cloud and the data center, including highly distributed and agile environments.
ITRS Group offers risk mitigation solutions to global financial institutions, driving a new discipline which extends real-time monitoring into a comprehensive operational and service management solution.
ExtraHop Networks provides network-based Application Performance Management solutions. The ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance system achieves real-time transaction monitoring at speeds up to a sustained 10Gbps in a single appliance.
Michael Olson on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I really see AIOps as being a core requirement for observability because it ... applies intelligence to your telemetry data and your incident data ... to potentially predict problems before they happen."
Enterprise ITOM and ITSM teams have been welcoming of AIOps, believing that it has the potential to deliver great value to them as their IT environments become more distributed, hybrid and complex. Not so with DevOps teams. It's safe to say they've kept AIOps at arm's length, because they don't think it's relevant nor useful for what they do. Instead, to manage the software code they develop and deploy, they've focused on observability ...
The post-pandemic environment has resulted in a major shift on where SREs will be located, with nearly 50% of SREs believing they will be working remotely post COVID-19, as compared to only 19% prior to the pandemic, according to the 2020 SRE Survey Report from Catchpoint and the DevOps Institute ...
All application traffic travels across the network. While application performance management tools can offer insight into how critical applications are functioning, they do not provide visibility into the broader network environment. In order to optimize application performance, you need a few key capabilities. Let's explore three steps that can help NetOps teams better support the critical applications upon which your business depends ...
In Episode 8, Michael Olson, Director of Product Marketing at New Relic, joins the AI+ITOPS Podcast to discuss how AIOps provides real benefits to IT teams ...
Will Cappelli on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I'll predict that in 5 years time, APM as we know it will have been completely mutated into an observability plus dynamic analytics capability."
When you consider that the average end-user interacts with at least 8 applications, then think about how important those applications are in the overall success of the business and how often the interface between the application and the hardware needs to be updated, it's a potential minefield for business operations. Any single update could explode in your face at any time ...
Despite the efforts in modernizing and building a robust infrastructure, IT teams routinely deal with the application, database, hardware, or software outages that can last from a few minutes to several days. These types of incidents can cause financial losses to businesses and damage its reputation ...
In Episode 7, Will Cappelli, Field CTO of Moogsoft and Former Gartner Research VP, joins the AI+ITOPS Podcast to discuss the future of APM, AIOps and Observability ...
