New Relic Recognized for Vision and Ability to Execute

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 20, 2012) -  New Relic, the SaaS application performance management (APM) company, today announced that Gartner Inc. has placed New Relic in the "leaders" quadrant of the August 16, 2012 "Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM)" report authored by Jonah Kowall and Will Cappelli. The report evaluated 14 vendors on completeness of vision and ability to execute. A complimentary copy of the report can be viewed here: http://newrelic.com/apm-magic-quadrant.

Vendors that appear in the Leaders Quadrant are evaluated on competitive offerings related to all five dimensions of APM and best-of-breed functionality in two or more of the dimensions, credibility in the monitoring of application domains assembled from heterogeneous sources, effective integration across three or more of the application management dimensions, the ability to deliver and support APM on a global basis, a consistent track record of innovation, and a vision that places APM at the heart of operations and application management.
