The report states, “performance analysis vendors are responding to new challenges in monitoring systems with innovations that include wider adoption of AI and ML for cloud and serverless technologies. I&O leaders should watch these emerging vendors, which offer new approaches to deliver technology performance insights.”  Also, the report provides the following recommendations,  “I&O leaders responsible for infrastructure, operations, and cloud management should:

  • Improve integration and visibility into developer environments by embedding monitoring technologies like those examined in this research early in the development cycle.

  • Prepare for the near-future state and monitor needs of IT environments by implementing monitoring tools that are cloud-, container-, and microservices-ready.

  • Explore how innovative vendors can address performance analysis gaps by investigating and vetting offerings versus business needs.”

“It is an honor for us to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor,” said Stanimir Markov, CEO and Co-Founder of Runecast. “We believe this is an important validation of our mission to provide customers with automated insights for a proactive approach to security compliance and business continuity.”
