Catchpoint In the News – August 2021: Bridging the Gap Between IT and Business Teams

August’s media coverage of Catchpoint and our work saw a focus on bridging the gap between IT and business teams. In this post, we summarize the coverage.

August’s media coverage of Catchpoint and our work saw a focus on bridging the gap between IT and business teams.

The Constellation ShortList highlighted eight digital performance management vendors, including Catchpoint, each finding ways to blur the lines between “business and IT to measure and manage the end-to-end transaction delivery.” As Founder and Principal Analyst Ray Wang points out, “It is critical for these technologies to translate the delivery into actionable information to optimize customer experience, as well as the performance of the technologies utilized.”

This year’s SRE Report, put together by Catchpoint in collaboration with VMWare Tanzu and DevOps Institute, was also in the news this month and saw a focus on the need for observability to expand to include digital performance metrics and business KPIs. Several outlets discussed the report’s key discoveries, including the findings centered on the IT to business relationship.

Finally, several news outlets covered the release of Catchpoint’s Digital Experience Score. Zach DeMeyer of Gestalt IT had this to say, “In a world where time is of the essence, yet you can’t just walk down to someone’s desk to fix their issues, Catchpoint’s Digital Experience Score allows you to quickly assess an individual user’s network, apps, and endpoint to suss out the problem at pace. Such a capability ensures that IT teams can rapidly assist their end users even in a distributed environment, much like they would in an office.”
