Splunk (SignalFx) Named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring
According to Gartner’s 2020 report, “Adoption of APM for monitoring microservices in production went up, from 61% to 78% as compared to the prior year. In addition, 49% of respondents deployed their APM-monitored environments in the cloud. This was up from 36% the prior year.” The SignalFx APM solution extends the Data-to-Everything Platform offering and joins Splunk’s broad set of IT operations solutions that help customers modernize monolithic applications to cloud environments, while providing an observability solution for modern cloud-native environments.
“Modern application environments and cloud-native technologies are enabling development teams to innovate and achieve their business goals faster, but teams that rely on traditional APM tools are not equipped to keep pace with these innovations,” said
While this is Splunk’s first positioning in the Magic Quadrant for APM, Gartner has also recognized Splunk’s position in the IT Operations Management (ITOM) market, which encompasses platforms and tools for Performance Analysis, including APM, artificial intelligence for operations (AIOps), IT infrastructure monitoring (ITIM) and network performance monitoring and diagnostic (NPMD). According to Gartner’s Market Share:
Splunk’s product portfolio is designed to help customers bridge the gap between traditional and cloud-native IT. Splunk recently announced the latest release of SignalFx Microservices APM™, the only APM solution that provides customers complete observability into modern, cloud-native environments to build better customer experiences and produce meaningful outcomes regardless of scale.
