Instana Recognized in the April 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Report

Recently, Gartner published the 2020 version of the Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring, and I’m excited to say that Instana is recognized in the report for the very first time.

Of course, we are extremely proud of this recognition. In fact, we recently celebrated our 5th year anniversary, and this feels like getting a belated present. Since we’ve been officially selling Instana’s automated APM solution for 3 years now, our successes have allowed us to generate great growth in our customer base, in our employees and our financial performance.

Instana was the first solution to natively manage Kubernetes-orchestrated applications, and we’ve continued to lead the way in managing both Kubernetes infrastructure and applications, as discussed in our recent corporate momentum announcement.

And as the adoption of microservices (and containers, and orchestration) move into larger organizations – the traditional APM users – we believe we’re in the best possible position to serve those clients as they migrate to microservices and expand their use to more applications.

Which brings me to our extremely desirable and transparent pricing model. Our common-sense licensing and easy-to-do-business-with commercial terms enable our customers to put APM monitoring on every application, not just a select few (automatic real-time configuration also enables that).

As such, we look forward to helping many customers whom, to-date, have not placed APM on many of their critical applications due to cost constraints. We’re ready!!!!
