CA Technologies Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring
ISLANDIA, N.Y., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that it has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring“ report*. After evaluating 29 qualifying application performance management (APM) providers, Gartner positioned CA Technologies in the “Leaders” quadrant.
According to Gartner’s March 2011 report entitled “Market Share, All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2010″, CA Technologies is the overall** and distributed application management worldwide market share leader based in total software revenue in 2010.
CA Application Performance Management (CA APM) monitors all Web and non-Web transactions as they traverse the application infrastructure and automatically links those transactions to dependent components. The solution delivers a business-centric view of application health, prioritizes incidents based on business impact, pinpoints failing components quickly and ties real end-user experiences to the infrastructure. Real end-user experience monitoring capabilities unified with deep-dive problem diagnosis features help customers understand performance issues in context, pinpoint failures and speed problem resolution.
“We believe the findings of this Gartner report echo what more than 1,500 customers already know — that CA APM is a trusted and proven market leader for keeping business services running smoothly,” said Mike Sargent, general manager, Service Assurance, CA Technologies. “Whether transactions occur in physical, virtual or cloud environments, CA APM helps protect revenue opportunities, end-user productivity and customer satisfaction by ensuring quality of service and quality of experience for critical business applications.”
According to the Gartner report, “six aspects characterize Leaders: (1) competitive offerings related to all five dimensions of APM and best-of-breed functionality in three or more of the dimensions; (2) credibility in the monitoring of application domains assembled from heterogeneous sources; (3) effective integration across four or more of the dimensions; (4) the ability to deliver and support APM on a global basis; (5) a consistent track record of innovation; and (6) a vision that places APM at the heart of operations and application management.”
