The Magic Quadrant criteria for Application Performance Monitoring (APM) has been published by Gartner analyst Jonah Kowall. In his blog, Jonah stated:
The note outlines reduced interest and investment in synthetic end user experience monitoring tools, as real user monitoring tools continue to become more mainstream and well adopted. This is a trend which has happened over the last few years, but is increasing as the options and cost of real user monitoring has decreased dramatically. The one area this has not happened is mobile APM, where synthetic is the current state of the art. This will be changing throughout 2013, as this year real user and real device mobile APM is adopted by customers. This is a similar transition web applications have gone through over the past several years.
We’re happy to hear the continued focus on real user monitoring, which is, a strong strength of SharePath’s. You can read more here:
