By Veeramani Nambi posted Mon June 13, 2022 09:53 PM


The latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring and Observability has just been released, and IBM (Instana) is proud to be recognized as a Leader.


IBM Observability by Instana APM discovers, maps and monitors all services, infrastructure components and their interdependencies, providing the actionable information with full context needed by site reliability engineering (SRE) and DevOps teams to optimize pipelines and applications. Instana’s Enterprise Observability Platform, powered by Automated APM, automatically ingests one-second observability metrics, traces every request and profiles all processes. It then combines that information to provide three-second trace notifications, enabling faster MTTR or automated remediation with AIOps.

Instana also provides automatic mobile metrics, code-level profiling, infrastructure mapping and dependency correlation in real-time for all services, endpoints and components. This creates intelligent actionable insight with the full context needed by DevOps to optimize application delivery pipelines and for SREs to optimize application SLOs.

IBM Instana provides the automation, context and intelligent action required for supporting today's complex application environments:

  • Automation: Automatic Discovery, Monitoring, Root Cause Analysis and Feedback reduce the amount of stress when deploying new code or making changes to the system, with immediate feedback on the performance and quality of your applications at each step of the software delivery pipeline.
  • Context: Get full understanding of how every application component and service interrelate with every other component and service. Instana’s Dynamic Graph (full-stack model), Context Guide (Architectural UX) and Unbounded Analytics (correlated analytics) help optimize performance and availability.
  • Intelligent Action: Stop reacting to problems and begin proactively delivering answers through actionable intelligence, deep analysis with context and expert suggestions for optimization.

Gartner recognized IBM Instana's strengths, highlighting our simplified pricing model that is straightforward to understand and competitively priced in the market, as well as our modern architecture design that provides comprehensive monitoring for cloud-native and containerized environments.
