San Francisco, CA - 7 March 2016

New report is a companion to the Gartner MQ for Application Performance Monitoring Suites 

AppDynamics, a leading application intelligence company, today announced that AppDynamics received the highest product score from Gartner in all five “Critical Capabilities Use Cases” in its recently released report, “Critical Capabilities for Application Performance Monitoring.” Those use cases identified by Gartner consist of Application Support, Application Development, IT Operations, Application Owner or LOB, and DevOps Release.

The Critical Capabilities research report, a companion document to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for APM, provides an “evaluation of APM suite capabilities across five usage scenarios and is designed to assist IT planners as they look to support mission-critical e-commerce and other services.” Fifteen vendor products were chosen and evaluated for each capability and scored on a five-point scale. The capabilities assessed for each use case included business analysis, service monitoring, anomaly detection, distributed profiling, application debugging, and workload planning.

AppDynamics received the highest score in all five use cases:

  • Application Support
  • Application Development
  • IT Operations
  • Application Owner or LOB
  • DevOps Release

With every industry undergoing transformation for the new digital age, APM technology becomes increasingly critical to business. The report provides recommendations for IT planners and developers on competitive products and services to be considered for further evaluation, depending on the capabilities needed and the usage scenarios essential to their business.

“We’re thrilled with AppDynamics’ first place ranking in Gartner’s recent ‘Critical Capabilities’ report,” said AppDynamics president and CEO David Wadhwani. “It’s critical that enterprises have an effective and unified application performance monitoring, troubleshooting and analytics solution in place — the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform is an essential pillar for driving digital transformation forward. We believe Gartner’s research further solidifies AppDynamics’ leadership across the board, by being named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites and in the use cases paramount for ensuring successful business outcomes.”
