Splunk to Acquire Plumbr and Rigor, Expanding the World’s Most Comprehensive Observability Portfolio
Splunk Redefines the Application Performance Monitoring Market
With both acquisitions and product integrations, Splunk will significantly expand its APM and DEM capabilities. The combined power of Splunk’s Observability Suite will ultimately give customers a seamless, end-to-end observability experience to help guide them across both cloud and on-premises environments, as well as the software architecture transformations occurring with applications.
“The global acceleration to multicloud and hybrid cloud architectures has created an observability revolution. Development, operations and IT teams everywhere require real-time, full-fidelity and ML-driven solutions that can help them quickly and confidently modernize and build cloud-native applications,” said
Plumbr offers advanced instrumentation, profiling and Real User Monitoring (RUM) capabilities, which are critical to monitoring Java, PHP, Python and .Net applications. The addition of Plumbr’s technology to Splunk’s Observability Suite gives customers unprecedented monitoring and troubleshooting of existing applications, as well as RUM, database monitoring and code profiling capabilities.
“I am proud of the work Plumbr has accomplished over the past nine years in building a dynamic APM platform,” said
Rigor delivers a unique DEM platform that combines the power of synthetic monitoring with an intelligent optimization engine to help customers find, fix and prevent web and API performance issues impacting user experiences. Rigor’s solutions can complement Splunk’s newly announced RUM offering as part of the company’s best-in-class Observability Suite.
“The combination of Splunk’s existing observability portfolio with Rigor and Plumbr will help our customers accelerate their digital transformations at the speed demanded by modern business,” added
