Software intelligence company Dynatrace has been positioned highest for ‘ability to execute' and furthest for ‘completeness of vision' in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM).

“We are proud to see our position this year and extend our gratitude to our customers who constantly challenge and inspire us to keep pushing the boundaries of innovation,” says Dynatrace CEO John Van Siclen.

“Several years ago, we anticipated that digital transformation would be cloud-first and that the then-emerging enterprise cloud would create a major disruption throughout the application and infrastructure landscape. We took a radical approach, to rebuild from the ground up a new platform intended to fit the new requirements of dynamic, webscale cloud monitoring. With our unique AI driven approach and advanced automation, our customers enjoy answers and insights rather than clicking through data, pouring through logs or guessing at the root cause. We believe and are gratified that the market success of Dynatrace's highly differentiated approach is being recognised by thought leaders such as Gartner.

“The AI engine, Davis, sits at the centre of our solution and differentiates us from anything else,” adds Dynatrace product management senior vice president Steve Tack.

“Davis can causate, quantify business impact, and drive to the precise root cause of issues, versus simple guesses based on correlation. On top of this, we opened the AI engine up to ingest data and events from third-party solutions, which enables greater automation and paves the way to autonomous cloud operations.

Dynatrace is also developing its capabilities beyond APM, as evidenced by a series of recent technical announcements including an AIOps solution for autonomous cloud management, automated and AI-powered cloud infrastructure and container monitoring, 4k playback of user journeys, and  extended cloud platform capabilities for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat OpenShift and Google Cloud Platform.

One of Dynatrace's services considered by Gartner states, “Dynatrace provides beyond application performance monitoring, giving you a full-stack visibility and software intelligence platform, which helps a lot of customers in identifying the issues and giving the accurate data happening [in a] customer's environment.
