AppDynamics Positioned in the "Leaders" Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Management

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — AppDynamics, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service application performance management (APM) solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Management” report published August 16, 2012.

“We’re pleased with Gartner’s placement of AppDynamics in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant for Application Performance Management,” said Jyoti Bansal, Founder & CEO of AppDynamics. “The needs of application performance management buyers have changed as applications have become more distributed, agile, and complex. I created AppDynamics specifically to empower Ops and Dev teams within these highly challenging environments, and we’re honored by Gartner’s recognition of both our industry vision and ability to execute. We see it as a testament of our ability to serve our rapidly growing customer base.”

AppDynamics stands at the forefront of a massive shift in how web applications are managed: modern applications are no longer monolithic in nature but are highly distributed and dynamic. As a result, traditional application performance management solutions have become ill-suited for the needs of today’s IT Operations and Development teams. AppDynamics’ ability to capitalize on this trend has led to tremendous market awareness and adoption of its solution—the company has already doubled its growth in the first half of 2012, and over 90,000 people have downloaded its free performance monitoring solution for Java/.NET apps.

The disruptive AppDynamics approach to application performance management includes:

  • A solution for managing high-volume production environments with less than 2% overhead
  • Complete visibility into distributed application environments through a focus on business transaction performance
  • Deep diagnostics that display code-level detail in only a few clicks when performance problems occur
  • Automatic discovery and dynamic mapping of application environments—strong fit for agile and cloud-based applications
  • Ability to allocate capacity on the fly during peak load times based on preconfigured thresholds
