UPDATE: dynaTrace Evaluated in Report on Application Performance Management Innovators by Leading Analyst Firm

BOSTON, MA and LINZ, AUSTRIA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2010) -  dynaTrace, the innovator and emerging leader in application performance management (APM), has been evaluated by Gartner, Inc. as an APM innovator in the March 2010 report, "APM Innovators: Emerging Vendors Drive Market Evolution." Authored by Will Cappelli, Research Vice President, the report looked at five companies that APM buying decision makers should consider, because they are driving some major trajectories in the evolution of the APM market.

"While most IT operations teams still regard the management of infrastructure components (virtual and real servers, networks and storage farms) as their core competency, they have increasingly come to understand that these elements deliver value to the business only in the context of the applications they support," noted Cappelli in recent Gartner research on the APM market. "Unfortunately, during the same time period in which business decision makers and IT operations management teams have discovered the importance of applications as key elements to be managed, application architectures have evolved in such a way as to make monitoring application performance a real challenge."(1)

"The convergence of complexity in the way today's applications are designed, built, deployed and managed is rendering traditional approaches to APM increasingly obsolete," said John Van Siclen, CEO of dynaTrace. "dynaTrace's next-generation APM system goes beyond traditional monitoring to provide continuous, deep, transaction-centric performance management across the application lifecycle. This approach delivers the insight enterprises need to cope with application complexity, eliminates the enormous amount of resources they waste struggling with performance problems and enables them to confidently deploy applications knowing they will scale to support their business goals. We are pleased to be recognized by Gartner as an innovator in a market undergoing such a transformation."

Core to dynaTrace's Continuous APM system is the dynaTrace PurePath -- patented technology that delivers deep insight into the inner workings of today's complex applications, eliminating the need for issue reproduction and reducing problem isolation, diagnostics and resolution times. dynaTrace's real-time visibility into application performance -- transaction-by-transaction from the end-user down to code-level -- simplifies problem resolution, identifying the precise source of performance bottlenecks. This enables a more effective approach to APM across the application lifecycle, as well as business transaction management that not only alerts when a problem occurs, but also pinpoints its root cause to provide architects and developers with the actionable data needed to resolve the problem immediately.
