Improve Observability and Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

Time to read: 5 minutes

IBM Instana has been named a LEADER in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring and Observability.

For any company in the digital age, the performance of core applications is critical. Slow response leads to a poor customer experience and that leads to lost business. But application infrastructure is getting more complex – beyond the point where manual intervention can cope.

Businesses must be able to rapidly scale up and down based on sometimes unpredictable waves of demand that can occasionally take the shape of severe spikes.

Computing resources must be continually adjusted so that application performance is always high enough to satisfy client demand, but also so that businesses don’t pay for unused capacity or wasted data centre energy.

The ultimate goal is to automate a trusted process – from analysis, identification, recommendations to resolution.

Observability with Instana APM

Instana anticipated the impact of cloud infrastructure and containerised services by implementing a new platform that delivers the performance required to match the increased performance of cloud-native technologies.

Its comprehensive, unsampled observability information ensures that nothing is missed or delayed in being provided to DevOps teams for instantaneous issue remediation.

IBM Instana was named a LEADER in the June 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring and Observability.

“Gartner defines the application performance monitoring (APM) and observability market as software that enables the observation and analysis of application health, performance, and user experience. The targeted roles are IT operations, site reliability engineers, cloud and platform ops, application developers, and product owners. These solutions may be offered for self-hosted deployments; as vendor-managed, hosted environments; or via software as a service (SaaS).”
