TRAC Research Announces 2013 Spectrum on Application Performance Management
March 05, 2013

TRAC Research, an analyst and research firm specializing in IT performance management, released the 2013 Application Performance Management Spectrum.

TRAC Spectrum is a unique application for publishing market research and analysis that allows user organizations to gain in-depth insight into actionable findings specific to their:

1. Job roles and company types

2. Business needs

3. Key challenges

4. Use cases

The TRAC Spectrum also enables organizations to create views into best practices, recommendations, and vendor landscapes that are most relevant to them.

Some of the key areas of the study include:

- Increased importance of APM analytics

- Differences in requirements for APM solutions between IT operations and developers

- Time to value is the key selection criteria for evaluating APM vendors

- New definition of the quality of user experience

- Virtualization is becoming another management "silo"

- New capabilities required for managing application performance in the cloud

- Web browser is becoming a focal point for APM

- New role of the network for application performance

- Overview of nine APM markets and technology vendor landscapes

"TRAC Spectrum is an innovative way for publishing research findings and the application performance management market is one of the best examples why this instrument is needed in the industry. The term 'APM' has different meanings to different end-user organizations and job roles. This results from the fact that the APM market is not well-defined and end-user organizations often find it challenging to understand what APM technologies are relevant for their specific needs. TRAC Spectrum provides a situational analysis in an interactive format to help end-user organizations define specifications of APM solutions that are the best fit for their unique use cases,” said Bojan Simic, president and principal analyst of TRAC Research.

TRAC's 2013 APM Spectrum is based on data from 447 survey respondents and 121 live interviews with end-user organizations.

The 2013 APM Spectrum also marks the launch of TRAC's new publishing model where each of the five unique interactive report formats are designed to make research findings more actionable and relevant to end-user organizations, while supporting them throughout the entire buying cycle of IT management technologies.
