Nastel Technologies Named An Application Performance Monitoring Visionary According to Leading Industry Analyst Firm

Assessment based upon completeness of vision and ability to execute

Melville, NY – Sept. 22, 2011Nastel Technologies, a premier global provider of business transaction performance™ solutions for mission-critical applications from the datacenter to the cloud, announced today that it has been named as a visionary by industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc. for Application Performance Monitoring (APM).

In its annual Magic Quadrant report on global providers of APM solutions released on Sept. 19, 2011, Gartner, Inc., the world’s largest technology analyst firm, evaluated 29 technology providers on their ability and success in capitalizing on their vision.

According to Gartner, since 2005 “there has been an increasingly explicit acknowledgment of and high-profile focus on the APM process among Global 2000 enterprises. Gartner estimates that 20% of the Global 2000 are trying to reconstruct all their IT operational process frameworks in ways that accord with the monitoring and management of applications, rather than infrastructure, in a central place.”

“We believe Nastel’s inclusion as a Visionary within this report serves as a key affirmation point that our solutions are viewed as leading the market within certain sectors of APM,” said David Mavashev, CEO of Nastel Technologies. “Our ability to provide particularly accurate and detailed transaction profiles and integrate those profiles with pure business process data, and our strength in monitoring message-based middleware and Java EE sets us apart from the other players as innovators that helped shape the APM market.”

In the report, authors Will Cappelli and Jonah Kowall observe: “The factors most responsible for the increased attention now being paid to the APM process and the tools and services supporting it does not come from IT, but from the business side of the enterprise, which has, during the past decade, fundamentally changed its attitude toward IT in general. Line of business and C-level executives now generally recognize that IT is not just infrastructure that supports background workflows, but is also, and more fundamentally, a direct generator of revenue and a key enabler of strategy.”

According to Gartner, a visionary in the Magic Quadrant is defined by the following criteria: “Visionaries, although frequently competitive across three or more of the five functional dimensions of APM, have, in at least one functional dimension, demonstrated (1) a consistent track record of innovation (i.e., they regularly introduced functional capabilities that no other vendor had previously introduced), and (2) their innovations have eventually been widely adopted by their competitors and have shaped the way in which users define APM. Visionaries become Leaders or their technologies are acquired and become part of the Leaders' APM product portfolios.”
