IBM rated #1 in the Ovum Decision Matrix – Application Performance Management (APM) report:
Some of the highlights...
On-prem, cloud, lightweight, mobile
"IBM is able to offer a comprehensive set of features – across newly architected products designed to meet both on-premise and cloud requirements – that are lightweight, easy to deploy, and well integrated. IBM is also reaching out to a wider user base with the introduction of easy access to tools via direct web downloads, easy deployments, and free trials. This is a new approach from IBM,
supported by a new streamlined web-based buying process designed to address the needs of a new generation of web-savvy businesses. Monitoring end-user experience for mobile is essential today, and IBM is supporting IBM Worklight-based apps and intends to add third-party mobile development support."
Near perfect on feature matrix
"IBM has a near perfect set of scores against our feature matrix criteria, spanning the whole range of APM categories. IBM is a vendor that enterprises should shortlist for their APM requirements. While IBM has traditionally targeted large enterprises, it is also looking to increase its SME presence with APM products available for direct download."
Supreme market execution
"IBM executes supremely well in the market with the backing of a global sales force and one of the largest IT services providers, IBM Global Business Services. The company is able to continually innovate, whether organically or through acquisitions."
Number 1 in Market share
"The global APM market is in the billion-dollar range and demand is increasing. IBM has a leading market share of this total and this is reflected in its market impact score."
