Gartner has published the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites.

However, the competition continues to grow more fierce as historical Leaders continue to ramp up their game and new Challengers arise."
Gartner has updated its definition of application performance monitoring (APM) suites since last year’s Magic Quadrant report. Gartner now defines APM suites as one or more software and/or hardware components that facilitate monitoring to meet three main functional dimensions:
- Digital experience monitoring (DEM)
- Application discovery, tracing and diagnostics (ADTD)
- Application analytics (AA).
The report includes APMdigest sponsors CA Technologies, IBM, AppDynamics and Riverbed, as well as Dynatrace, New Relic, HPE, BMC, Correlsense, Oracle, Microsoft and Nastel.
