SL Corporation Named a Challenger in Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring
Evaluation Based on SL's Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
Corte Madera, CA - September 27, 2011 - SL Corporation, a leading provider of Application Performance Monitoring solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Challengers Quadrant of the most recent "Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring 1 report authored by Gartner Vice President of Research, Will Cappelli and Research Director, Jonah Kowall. SL Corporation is among 29 technology providers evaluated by Gartner on their completeness of vision and ability to execute in the Application Performance Monitoring (APM) market.
In this report, SL's RTView addresses four of the five functional dimensions of APM specified by Gartner: component deep dive monitoring for application context, application performance analytics, end-user experience monitoring and user-defined transaction profiling.
"We believe our placement in the Challengers quadrant is a confirmation of our rapid growth over the last 18 months as well-established companies continue to select our RTView for APM platform to help them reach the goal of providing holistic, end-to-end visibility into the health state of their applications, said Tom Lubinski, Founder and CEO of SL Corporation. "We are extremely impressed by the progress that Will, Jonah and the other Gartner analysts involved with this report have made in defining and forecasting this elusive space, and are honored to be included alongside so many of the key participants.
According to Gartner, since 2005 "there has been an increasingly explicit acknowledgment of and high-profile focus on the APM process among Global 2000 enterprises. Gartner estimates that 20 percent of the Global 2000 are trying to reconstruct all their IT operational process frameworks in ways that accord with the monitoring and management of applications, rather than infrastructure, in a central place.
The report goes on to say, "In 2011, about $2 billion will be spent worldwide on application performance monitoring licenses and first-year maintenance contracts. This is a 15% increase over the $1.7 billion spent on APM in 2010, which grew by approximately 10%, compared with global spending in 2009.
