SmartBear Recognized in 2014 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring

SmartBear Enters as Niche Player for its AlertSite UXM Application Performance Monitoring Platform
Beverly, MA — November 17, 2014 — SmartBear Software, the choice of more than two million software professionals for building and delivering the world’s best applications, has been positioned as a “Niche Player” in the 2014 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring[1], recently released by Gartner. AlertSite UXM delivers a user-centric, unified solution focused on making it easy for an application team to ensure the end user experience.
AlertSite UXM is the first easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use platform for end-to-end monitoring of Web, mobile, third party SaaS applications and APIs. It provides an easy way to measure the end user experience of applications and to detect problems before real users experience them. It also allows identifying the root cause of problems using a single platform, by correlating end user experience (performance) data with transactional data on the back end tiers, thereby increasing the efficiency of DevOps teams and reducing the time/cost of resolution.
The Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring discusses the demand for APM products and services intensifying with a focus on mobility and analytics, allowing IT operations, application support, nontechnical business users and users evolving toward DevOps to support continuous release. APM provides better insight into applications and business execution.
“We are excited to be included in Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring, making our entrance as a Niche Player,” said Anand Sundaram, VP, Products, AlertSite UXM at SmartBear. “We’re doing something truly innovative and we believe the industry recognizes it. We are committed to providing the best solutions for application teams to manage the end user experience and quickly fix problems when they arise. Our approach, which ties together monitoring and root cause identification, is something we continue to focus and expand upon.”
