When it comes to APM 4.0 technologies, vendors are either platform providers or ecosystem specialist suppliers. This guide explores those with an ability to serve as an APM 4.0 platform. A future publication will address ecosystem providers that deliver advanced-grade APM 4.0 predictive analytics capabilities. Use this guide to help you quickly identify which companies and solutions to investigate further. This LNS solution selection guide describes 13 vendors at a macro level by:
- Functional footprint
- Deployment model
- Geographic footprint
- Industry footprint
- Target market
Product evolution happens rapidly (particularly Cloud software), and specific micro level functionality descriptions become out of date quickly. This guide introduces a more powerful decision framework, the LNS Research “3P” Evaluation Model, to qualitatively evaluate suppliers.
