Gartner positions Quest Software in the leaders quadrant in the 2012
Magic Quadrant for APM.
Gartner evaluated 15 vendors on their "ability to execute" and
"completeness of vision," requiring each vendor meet all five APM
Quest continues to take a fully integrated approach to the five
dimensions of APM as identified by Gartner: end-user experience
monitoring; user-defined transaction profiling; application component
discovery, modeling and display; application component deep dive
monitoring in application context; and analytics.
This report comes after Quest's recent introduction of Foglight for
Windows Azure? Applications, a SaaS performance monitoring solution
based on Windows Azure. SaaS support was a criterion for inclusion in
the Gartner 2012 MQ.
Quest Foglight Enables IT Administrators to Meet Today's Evolving APM
Foglight has enabled thousands of companies to simplify APM, eliminate
business-impacting performance issues, and provide the necessary
metrics to forecast changes needed to support shifts in the market.
The award-winning solution reduces the experience level and effort
required to monitor complex applications that span end users,
applications, databases, operating systems and networks.
Unlike other APM leaders, Foglight optionally extends beyond purely
application support personnel to enable database administrators, ESX
administrators, network administrators and other IT teams to simply
and efficiently collaborate during incident and problem management
activities with a tightly integrated, 'single version of the truth'
that satisfies all technology stakeholders.
Additionally, Foglight's user experience monitoring capabilities
uniquely extend beyond performance alone to provide business
stakeholders unprecedented visibility via replay and analytics on
every click made by every user on a web application.
Using a single code base and an adaptive design for fast deployment
and accelerated time-to-value, Foglight offers the modular flexibility
required to deliver a range of capabilities and sophistication that
meets the needs of any organization.
John Newsom, vice president and general manager, Performance
Monitoring, Quest Software
"Over the past 20 years, we've
worked closely with our global customers to develop a robust application
performance monitoring solution that can monitor everything from
critical infrastructure to end user website performance. Our customers
regularly tell us that our unique differentiators, particularly as they
relate to our end user monitoring capabilities, make Foglight far more
cost justifiable than any of the APM-only point solutions on the market,
while at the same time providing opportunities for practical tool
consolidations to further reduce complexity and costs. We are pleased to
be in the leaders quadrant of the Gartner 2012 APM Magic Quadrant, as we
feel this confirms our commitment to providing customers with a leading
APM solution that uniquely addresses critical issues for both business
and IT stakeholders."
