Accedian is pleased to be recognized once again in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for NPMD. Following evaluation against Gartner’s inclusion and exclusion criteria for 2019, the report includes 16 companies in the Magic Quadrant, with Gartner listing Accedian as a Niche Player. From our perspective, this positioning reflects Accedian’s “heavy R&D focus” on solving the cloud and SDN challenges associated with the inescapable IT transition to hybrid environments. 

Network and application performance visibility is mission critical to the success of businesses in today’s digital environments due to the high cost of performance degradation. The cost of failure includes resources spent on analyzing and mitigating end user performance issues, losses in productivity, and revenue impact due to the inability to perform billable work, services, and downtime. Dependency of applications on the network, and the high degree of distribution that IT teams face today, Accedian’s SkyLIGHT™ solution puts the interrelationship between end user experience and the networks, applications, and today’s data center and cloud environments in the spotlight. Optimal performance is achieved through a clear view of application and network resource behavior to accelerate troubleshooting, to eliminate degradation, and to accurately assess infrastructure in preparation for migrations and updates.

As Gartner states in the 2019 report, “NPMD vendors have had to contend with several key shifts in the environments they are attempting to monitor.” Two of these nine key shifts are “migration toward cloud-hosted workloads and applications fundamentally changing the flow of network traffic” and “increasing virtualization and east-west traffic in the data center, presenting a data capture challenge.”

“On the heels of Accedian’s first acknowledgement in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for NPMD, we are excited to again be positioned in the 2019 report,” says Sergio Bea, VP of Enterprise and Channels of Accedian. “We believe it reflects Accedian’s commitment to delivering solutions that allow IT teams to accelerate change while mitigating the risks involved with complex transformations. Our adaptive and scalable solutions meet the needs of our customers every step of the way as they undergo these migrations.”
