2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant report for APM and Observability

APM and observability tools are powerful analytics platforms that ingest multiple telemetry feeds and provide critical insight into application health, performance and increasingly, security. I&O leaders can use this research to explore the many, diverse options and overcome choice paralysis.

Gartner defines the application performance monitoring (APM) and observability market as software that enables the observation and analysis of application health, performance and user experience. The targeted roles are IT operations, site reliability engineers, cloud and platform teams, application developers, and product owners. These solutions may be offered for self-hosted deployment, as a vendor-managed hosted environment, or via SaaS.
