Dynatrace once again named a Leader in 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for APM
Updated: Jun 24, 2021
Dynatrace was named as a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM). This is the 11th consecutive time Dynatrace has appeared as a Leader in this report. For the second time, Gartner positioned Dynatrace highest and furthest in both Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. A complimentary copy of the report is available here.
“Application-layer observability continues to be critical for any modern, cloud observability strategy,” said Steve Tack, SVP of Product Management at Dynatrace. “For many of our customers, applications are the high ground – where the business meets IT. Bringing our best-in-class application observability together with multicloud and hybrid-cloud infrastructure observability, automatic log capture and analytics, and advanced user experience observability continues to set us apart. This enables our customers to tame cloud complexity, speed innovation, and deliver better business outcomes, consistently.”
Dynatrace believes its sustained leadership reflects its ability to guide the industry in a rapidly evolving market. The industry has moved to dynamic, multicloud and hybrid-cloud environments which produce an immense volume, velocity, and variety of data. This increased cloud complexity has brought the need for automation and intelligence, in addition to observability, to the forefront.
Anticipating this evolution, Dynatrace re-invented its Software Intelligence Platform from the ground-up. The platform provides the broadest multicloud observability, spanning logs, metrics, and traces, user experiences data, and data from the latest open-source standards, including OpenTelemetry. Dynatrace built AIOps capabilities into the core of the platform through its AI engine, Davis®, which automatically identifies any anomalies in cloud performance or user behavior and prioritizes alerts based on business impact to eliminate guesswork. In addition, Dynatrace’s automation dramatically reduces manual-intensive tasks, through continuous discovery, as well as automatic configuration and instrumentation across the full stack.
“We are thrilled to, once again, be recognized by Gartner for our Leader position in APM,” continued Tack. “We are also thankful for our customers and partners who help guide us as we continually innovate. They motivate and inspire us to provide the most intelligent cloud observability platform that’s also easy to use, simple to scale, and valuable across many digital business use cases.”
