Splunk (SignalFx) Recognized in Magic Quadrant for APM for the First Time Following Acquisitions

Splunk Inc., provider of the Data-to-Everything Platform, announced Splunk (SignalFx) has been named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM). Splunk’s first-ever placement in the report is a result of Gartner’s evaluation of Splunk’s ability to execute and completeness of vision among other vendors in APM. For this report, Gartner evaluated APM capabilities from the Splunk Data-to-Everything™ Platform, including Splunk® Enterprise and Splunk® IT Service Intelligence as well as the new NoSample and AI-driven distributed tracing technologies from SignalFx and Omnition, acquired in 2019.

According to Gartner’s 2020 report, “Adoption of APM for monitoring microservices in production went up, from 61% to 78% as compared to the prior year. In addition, 49% of respondents deployed their APM-monitored environments in the cloud. This was up from 36% the prior year.” The SignalFx APM solution extends the Data-to-Everything Platform offering and joins Splunk’s broad set of IT operations solutions that help customers modernize monolithic applications to cloud environments, while providing an observability solution for modern cloud-native environments.

“Modern application environments and cloud-native technologies are enabling development teams to innovate and achieve their business goals faster, but teams that rely on traditional APM tools are not equipped to keep pace with these innovations,” said Rick Fitz, senior vice president and general manager, IT Markets, Splunk. “Through the combination of Omnition, SignalFx and Splunk, we have created an industry-leading APM solution that helps development teams tackle any challenge in this new application environment and deliver first-class customer experiences.”
