AppNeta Named “Cool Vendor” by Gartner
SaaS-delivered Application Performance Management solution recognized for providing visibility from application, through the network, to the client
BOSTON, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — AppNeta, the leading provider of SaaS solutions for exceptional delivery of business-critical applications, today announced it has been named a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner. According to Gartner, the Application Performance Monitoring (APM) Cool Vendor report highlights “emerging APM offerings bought by multiple buyers, including IT operations, application support, development and line-of-business application owners. These offerings encompass an understanding of network performance, the Internet’s health and critical mobile application performance.”
By bringing together detailed application performance insight, comprehensive end-user monitoring and 360-degree network performance visibility, AppNeta’s APM 3.0 solutions, including TraceView and PathView Cloud, enable customers to easily see what’s going on from the application, through the network, to the client. This broad, yet granular level of visibility gives customers all the insight they need to identify tough performance bottlenecks and bridge the divide between applications and networks, and the IT organizations managing them.
AppNeta’s SaaS-delivered services are helping thousands of organizations today achieve enterprise performance, without the typical hassles and headaches, by enabling customers to:
- Actively track and analyze Web transactions using a combination of active/passive approaches (including both RUM and Synthetics for End User Experience)
- Continuously monitor any Web, cloud service and custom application with automatic alerting and reporting to track SLA violations
- Analyze bandwidth usage by application, host, user and QoS and to monitor thousands of applications at once to identify trends and abuse
- Validate WAN provider SLAs for actual end-to-end bandwidth (on any IP network, LAN, WAN or Internet) latency, loss, jitter and QoS
The Gartner Cool Vendors in Application Performance Monitoring 2013 report says that, “Application Performance Monitoring (APM) as a service is evolving at a rapid pace versus APM offerings that are confined to on-premises deployment models only.” AppNeta’s SaaS-delivered approach to performance monitoring services provides customers with ease-of-use and fast problem resolution that cuts down on IT resources and end-user frustration.
“AppNeta offers performance insight that is well beyond the average data that customers are accustomed to seeing in their APM solutions,” said Jim Melvin, AppNeta CEO. “We are giving customers the ability to look across the service delivery chain – from application, through the network, to the client. And, because it is SaaS-delivered, it can take minutes to resolve performance problems instead of hours or days.”
In March, 2013 AppNeta raised $16 million in Series C funding led by Bain Capital Ventures, Egan-Managed Capital, JMI Equity and Business Development Bank of Canada. The new investment added further momentum to AppNeta’s triple-digit growth in the SaaS performance management market and validates the company’s APM 3.0 vision to transform IT performance management by bringing end-user experience monitoring and network insight to traditional application performance management.
AppNeta is revolutionizing IT Performance Management with the first cloud-delivered service for integrated, end-to-end visibility across applications and networks. AppNeta delivers an industry-first SaaS portfolio for assuring exceptional delivery of business-critical applications.
